Re: C-17 Stitching

This happens fairly often. Moving the lower panels,now, around is almost always the cure. Gap too big at the bow then you need to move the panel closer to the boat bottom. Also you might need to tilt the panel fore and aft some.

Re: Scupper ?

Really nice looking boat! That scupper set up should work like a charm. One thing I like about larger openings is fall leaves are not so pone to plugging them.

Re: Carolina Skiff J16

You could bond the honeycomb to what you have with epoxy glue. I know those hulls are famous for getting water logged. I can see why with the way the ribs are.

What about removable, drop-in seats and deck? Put them in and out like gear you are going to carry, and then their weight doesn't matter. I bet you can then get the hull with skeg, thwart(s), knees, and support for the seats and deck below your 40lb target and make them out of solid timber. That so...
