New 21'4" Wide Body Build Central Oregon
« on: February 11, 2012, 05:43:25 PM »
Well after floundering around for a few days back and forth between different stores getting the stuff I kept realizing I did not have at my home shop I cut my first piece of wood yesterday afternoon. At my cabinets shop(CS from here on out) yesterday I ripped the stringers with the bevel full length out of Versalam's cut the two front and two back stringers to the lofting dim. Then decided to through it all in the truck and take it home to my shop there and get going first thing today. Had to get new propane tank put in and service the heater.

First thing I realized was all the shelves need to be planed down from 1 3/4" to 1 1/8"  so loaded them back up and took back to the CS since I don't have a planer at home..Planed them all down then roughted the 23degree bevel on the out side of shelves. Actually it was a 22 1/2 degree bit but figured that was closer than using a skill saw. Took it all home and glued the shelves up on my 2 4x8 pieces of ply where my lofting was. Then got the stringers all marked out for cutting tomorrow. Hope my shelf joints hold I got in a hurry and forgot the add filler in the joint so just epoxy I did get it coated several times. I plan on adding ribbion mahogany for the top cap might even do a little wood inlay (maybe) Also used glass on both sides. First time using epoxy in about five years. My last boat project was a Black Brant duck boat all stitch and sew designed by Sam Devlin. Boats still floating high and dry five years latter and just now needing a little TLC.

I also made 8 saw horses to Renns design they sure came in handy today. My heating guy commented on how sweet looking they were very clean cut, of course that's what a CNC will do for ya. Can't wait till tomorrow when I take the two shelves apart I plan on flipping one and supporting them both so I can get a feel for how huge this boat looks for a SKIFF I can tell already it's going to be an awesome boat.

I wonder how to delete this thread I realized I should have posted it in announcements which I did. Maybe the admin will take care of it. Hate being a newbie
