OB 19 in Maryland

Post by Batedunie »

It has officially started...!

I have been pouring over the plans for weeks now and have been struggling...

Image

So I just decided to buy some supplies and figure it out... First things first...build the strongback and buy some wood!

Image

Hopefully I can keep a steady pace on this boat with plenty of advice from the builders here...

Thanks

Mike

Good to see someone close building. The plans will have all the information it just might not be on the page you think it should be. Figuring out the plans is part of the fun. After you solved the riddle move on. There are great builders on this forum just ask and you will have a straight answer. work like a dog on it and it will get done.

You're also in luck that Steven and I have recently been through all the steps you are about to take. If you have a question and I don't seem to be answering, drop me a line on my build thread (OB19 in SW FL). That way I'll get a reminder email.

I got a few things accomplished today....

The first thing I did was clean up the garage to give me a little more room...Then I started to cut out some panels...It was hard not to think about how expensive the wood was as I was cutting it...Hopefully turns out ok!

Transom is cut...

Image

Stringers are started but not finished...

Image

I cant do anything with out help from my shop assistants!

Image
Image

All in all I got transom, clamping boards, and two half stringers cut...when I add it all up it doesnt amount to much but dammit I worked hard today!

Great to see another OB19 build. Great boat for MD waters. I grew up there and my folks live on the water in Lusby, just outside of Solomons. I still can't get over how stable this boat is. :) Don't be shy with the questions. We're to help.

Thanks for the reply Steven...I grew up near there spending my summers out of Benedict...

I have a question for everybody...Take a look at the pictures below....The notch in my transom is not lining up with the tops of the clamping boards....I double checked the measurements and cant find any mistakes...am I missing something or did I measure wrong...Im ready to start putting the jig together but want to make sure everything is right before moving on...can someone help me to understand this?

This is a close up

Thanks in advance

I don't know exactally what is wrong, but the cut out of the transom and the clamping boards should all line up at the top - where the motor would sit. I'd check again against the plans, and also post here the dimensions of the transom and the clamping boards - height on plans and as cut from the keel.
This is one area that the plans were altered after a couple of OB19s were built - mine has a 23-ish" height, but this should be closer to 21 or so for a 20" shaft.
