Justin's P19

Post by justin_dwyer »

I have started building a P19 after a years deliberating which boat to build.

I collected a heap of wood from industrial bins around Darwin, can't believe what people throw out, I even found 2x6inch sleepers in a bin, enough for my strongbacks and all the uprights I'll need. Plus I scored a heap of ply from a demolision site.

I'd be grateful for any info, tips, tricks that might save me from making any mistakes that anyone has already made.

Cheers

Welcome aboard Justin,
Can't wait to see this one come together!

What kind of plywood are you using for the hull?

Hi guys.

I am using AA Marine ply, 12mm for the transom (plus 2 clamping boards both 12 mm), 9mm for the frames and 6mm for the hull.

Why, what have you seen?

Haha, I should have clarified...I got all the stuff from the bins for frames, etc. I bought the marine ply.

What is an acceptable error range when measuring the diagonals from the transom outside edge to the opposite side on frame C, I have 2cm and think it is too much. Might start again.

What are your thoughts?

I would say 10 mm (3/8) is fine. 20 mm is a little too much but not dramatically bad.

Kick it.
I'm not joking, tapping one of the strongbacks with a rubber mallet is sometimes enough to line it up.
