Jaysen forgot to plan better.
1. He is copying a metric boat load of forum and BBC files to a set of new servers to help with performance and activity isolation.
2. Jaysen is moving processing of sites to new servers starting 9pET March 3. Not sure which ones will or will not move.
There should be no impact. If you see something wrong, swear at Jaysen on Jeff's behalf (he's too nice to do it himself).

Details are at viewtopic.php?p=485879#p485879

I apologize to you all for not planning better.

Re: FS-13 transom arc question

As you can see from these builds linked from the study plans, there is some leeway to vary the shape of the transom somewhat. You want the motor to clamp at the correct height, but beyond that it's up to you how the transom top is shaped. http://gallery.bateau2.com/albums/userpics/22523/FS13_Rubrail...

Re: Raised sole on xf20

I don't know how much the foam kits weigh per gallon, but if it's 10 pounds, then a 2 gallon kit adds 20 pounds to the boat. That weight is more than air, of course, so the boat won't rise up out of the water as you add buoyancy foam! The lightest boat will not have foam, but foam does give you some...

Primer will show up any places that aren't fully smooth, you may want to skip that step on the bottom!

LoL, it looks like one of those "barn finds" you see stories about! The boat is looking great, looking forward to seeing it with some primer.

Re: help with latch hinge mortises

Make a jig for the router. Use a piece of 1/2" ply. The last ones I made were a tad big on one end, but you can work the templates to perfect. Bearing and a mortising bit. Otherwise, Ken's advice is solid, but I get really nervous about slipping. If you have a lot of hinge recesses to cut, I a...

Re: HC14 to Sailing Trimaran!

As regards the shroud placement, wider would be better if you have a strong place to tie to. I wonder if the outriggers will be that place.

Re: PC22 - plans bought; couple of questions...

I'll be using tulip poplar for all the stringers. I've got several hundred board feet (16' long) that's been air dried in my shop for about 8 years so moisture content is low. Nice straight grain. I like tulip poplar and use it for many things, but I recognize it is kind of soft, isn't especially s...
