GV11 In Brisbane

Post by Gary Harms »

Started on my GV11 this weekend.

Posted some pictures in the Gallery, link as below.

Building my GV11

All went smoothly, a tribute to the quality of the supplied plans.

Of course I've made a couple of modifications. :roll: Included an extra frame aft to build in some flotation and also will include an extra frame for the aft and middle seats to give me some storage areas and flotation.

Next weekend I'll get started on filleting and glassing the internal seams.

Gary,

I actually saw your pics in the gallery before you posted this thread! Looking good - congratulations on a fine start. I'll be following your progress with interest.

I see you're using Bote Cote products - I intend to use these when I am able to start on the LB22.

BTW, where are you in Brisbane? We lived in Aspley, Geebung, and Herston before moving up to Beachmere. We owned and operated two flying schools, one at Redcliffe and one at Caboolture, from 1983 to 1992.

Mike,

I'm in Sandgate, nice and close to the water.

I found BoatCraft Pacific (makers of Bote-Cote) while looking for plywood. Their office is about a 45 minute drive from home and their prices are good.

After I finish the GV11 I intend to start on a DE25. :?

Hi There Gary

I'm also in Brisbane - we should get the boats together after your done and have our own little Bateau club meeting off Bribie :)

By a strange coincidence I'm also looking very closely at the DE25 - now that would be fun.
