Doc_Dyer's V10

Post by Doc_Dyer »

hello all,

now I wont feel guilty for attending the annual boat meets anymore...

its official i've started my V10

using bs1088 Meranti,

already had a few snapfu's which is to be expected

one of my butt joints slid apart on one edge. had to chisel off the plywood and sand down to the orig ply.

got the front bow section together within 1/8" even with the Meranti.

learned that you need to do the bottom panels first and from the bow to stern (used a few hundred zip ties) on and off ...etc.

well enough of the talk here is the boat porn ( yes I used a lot of ties )

Looks real good Bradley, but I think you need some more cable ties :lol:

Looks good to me. At that stage, I had way more used zip ties on the floor than on the boat. :)

Looking good! I'm not sure if anyone asked, but is there a reason you went so sparingly with the cable ties? I'd have used more if I were you, just to be on the safe side :wink:

ok,

you wanted to know why so many zip ties :doh:

Meranti is a little stiffer than Okoume.

this is some serious wood torture

I was filling the last of my drill holes with ezfilet on the transom when I hear
