JustInCase FB11 build

Post by JustInCase »

So Im committed. Here's the build plan for the FB11.
-Do a little experiment cutting curves in plywood this weekend and build a window box size planter that looks something like a canoe using stitch and glue. If it looks good I may even paint it next weekend before starting on the FB11.
- While I am off work between Christmas and January 5 build the hull and get as far as I can on the FB11.
- finish the boat working nights and weekends through the winter and launch her in spring or early summer.
I have the plywood now. I'm going to do the full sail, row, motor set up on this so I got 4 sheets of the 6 mm okoume for the hull and a sheet of 18mm Meranti for the foils. I'm also going to make a small change to the plan and move the forward seat up to the gunnel and stretch it back to cover the upper mast support. That and adding all the parts for the motor and sail option made getting the 4the sheet of 6 mm nessissary over the 3 in the plan/kit.

I'll post progress here and add pictures to the gallery I just created....I may even link them here if I figure that out. :doh:

I ran a charter boat out of Ft. Lauderdale for a while, it was named Justin Time. It carried a dinghy/life boat on the bow named Justin Case :lol:

Why don't you post a photo of the window box, too?
I don't have the plans but the photos of other boats look as if the front seat is already at the gunnels but perhaps the sailing version is different.

The plans have the fwd seat a few inches below the gunnel with the upper mast support a few in back and at the gunnel.
I'll post pictures of the planter when it's done or maybe at the end of the day...I'm off to the store now to get a sheet of cheep 1/4" plywood to play with before working with the spendy stuff.

I Did learn some things that will be good to know.
1) The top ply on the cheep wood I got was very thin and delaminates from the next ply down very easily.
Next time I need to de-bur all edges and holes to keep that from happening.
2) cut on the outside of the line with the circular saw and walk it in to maintain a nice exact curve. Go slow and use a nice new plywood/panel blade to prevent chipping.

A lot of people do it with an Ipad, but I don't know how. Sorry.
