Thanks Steve


I saw your boat last night, It's looking great.

You said that you used 3/4" ply for the transom. Did you have to make adjustments to the motor well sides or the length of the hull panels?

I am thinking of using 1/2" for the transom and clamping boards, this way I may not have to cut back on too much.

thanks for your reply

I used 2 layers of 18mm ply for the clamping board, as I already had it,instead of 3 of 9mm & used 1 layer of 10 mm for the full transom. I just cut the cutouts in the motorwell sides 10mm deeper to compensate.the only meaurement that changed was that one. if you use 12mm(1/2) for the full transom instead of 3/8 I dont think it will matter.what does matter is that the total thicness of the transom including clamping boards is equal to or greater than that stated in the plans.fire away with trhe questions btw, I did, everyone here wants you to succeed.
I hope this helps,
Steve

Dang...where are you located??? Your wearing shorts and we have 2' of snow on the ground with a high of 9 degrees today! hahaha. Puts a little damper on the boat building, but the skiing's been great!

Looks like things are coming out nicely for you. Look forward to seeing more. You'll probabaly pass me up in no time!

Hey Lower and all


I am located in Homestead, Florida.

We had some cool weather here last night. went down to 27 degrees FH with the wind chill factor. My wife had to bring the chilly pepper trees inside the garage.

Nice tomorrow. 70 deg. may be I'll get some more done.

thanks guys

Thanks Steve,

I am thinking of using throw away molds for every thing except the transom and clamping boards. Then use them as patterns to cut what is required for the console model.

Is this a good idea?

Has any one flipped an FS17 over as yet?, I would sure like to see the inside

If I was to start over I would use throwaway molds for everything except the transom, frame A & the stringers, you will save ply that way.the other permanent frames could be cut from less than one sheet I think.If you look in the gallery for Jimmac he has a flipped boat with a slightly modified bow sheer.

Thank Steve


I cut out the bow mold yesterday, but the measurement from the keel to the DL is 3/4" longer than the measurement of the "A" mold.

I have measured and remeasured several times. Has any one have the same discrepancy?

Please help.
