 Increased scantlings sound good to me. We're 'stock' ourselves but glassed heavy with 8" biaxial at stress points and used 42g. One 'mod' spec Renn suggested was we used a 10" versalam (measures 9-5/8" x 1-7/8") on the transom due to divedoor and our heavy-duty davit and thich motorwell sidewall. Like Kevin Beddoe's idea on twin belly tanks as our 62g makes us creative on acc. tanks for tuna runs. Huge fishdecks I think require drain-boxes in each corner and connected to transom drainbox(sic). Also wish we had put in a 'gutter' next to the transom to channel water to scuppers.

 That's funny about leaving out o/b drywell as we stepped thru it as much as the divedoor and I didn't even get it boxed in for 6? months after launching as we splashed with interior of cuddy not done, no driver seat, no radar, no fishdeck paint, no anchor roller, no vhf, and no pilothouse curtain. Good idea on the heavy siderail but I'd really suggest doing the acc. chine sprayrail(stock on the Standard skiff) before flipping too. We were like a submarine the first crab season till I put it on while on the trailer. It's no drag on performance at plane but does a great job of throwing the bow wave down IMO. B & B

Hey Dave, how come you are holding out on us?  You put more pictures and words up on Facebook to an audience of three or four...

everybody on here are pretty much pros :).  Im not sure my style of build fat and messy is worthy...    today I got the chines glassed up and one 50 in ch bottom cloth, and cut back the bowstem and routed it.   the bowstem on the jumbo sure is easy enough.  I am almost totally out of parts, just have to glue up the transom and scarf the side panels and them all kit parts are accounted for...  I tell you buying the kit saves a ton of time and aggravation.  I had to run the jigsaw thru the chine on one side for about 18 inches and on the stbd side took off a 30 inch by 1/8th slice and the fit was damn near perfect as cut and i made the scarfs right on the boat as I stiched them on...  gotta save you 50-75 hrs with a kit.  somewhere in there.   One i get the transom glued up (later tnoight after pizza) and glass the bottom with a mess of 50 inch cloth, I will be readt to flip the bottom and frame the hull...  i have to do homework tomorrow for Monday or I'd get her framed up.  by next weekend I should have the hull bottom on but Ill be damned if i can figure out the best way to get the bottom on.  Im thinking of suspending it with three pulleys because I dont have a crew to carry it out and flip it...

G'day Dave,

Thanks for the responses, very helpful, i am ready to start my build on a 26'/8m Jumbo.

Are you sticking to the Jumbo width and just giving it the extra length, a slightly thicker bottom, and supersized stringers?

I have also decided to put a diesel donkey inboard in, similar to what kiwi Les is up to.

Just need time now, picked up a heap of work, busier than a bricklayer in bagdad,


Cheers
Ben

Oh yeah, and whats your opinion on the GA sides having a 15 to 17 degree angle giving more floor space in the boat?

lots and lots of questions eh fella.

Cheers

Not all of us are meticulous builders Dave.....I have had mine in water in Texas, Ohio, Massachusets, Kansas, and Missouri fishing before it is finished is not the prefered COA but it works.  My priority after this trip to the sand box is primer.....

As for your typos... think of it like the radio. It is push to talk, not push to think over....

One way to look at the work boat finish is that when a cannonball slams the side I don't worry about it to much, just keep fishing and check it out later. Maybe a touch up of Rustoleum and back in business.

Actually, the reason for the amount of flare in the GA is to allow the boat to be trailered without a special wide load permit.  The floor space is a direct function of the waterline beam, and the beam has to be selected properly for the boat's hydrostatics and aspect ratio.  The side flare was made as wide as possibly while still allowing the boat to be trailered without the aforementioned permit.  It's a little less than a Tolman, but more than most commercially built boats, still enough to be in the 'semi dory' category.

Hi Dave,
 I read your BassBarn form, and I really liked the fire engine comparison, I'll be using that on my fishing partners.
I'm enjoying your build, keep up the fast work.
I have lots of family in MD, I may visit and sling some epoxy with you.

Is the dock that big brown thing that doesn't move? I've hit that a few times myself....

I met Fletcher a bunch of years ago finishing our work at Benning with Steve Z.  We had a late night downtown and stopped in hungover and Fletch had a honkin big shop and a huge compressor and a great hull built somewhere around Atlanta.

Hey, I havent met a Tolman guy i didnt like, in fact, I like them all, Steve from Va, Fletch from GA, Steve D from Ca, Jim S from ME. and Ken Chace NH, Paul Fithian from Indiana and the list goes on and on to Woods Hole and etc...

Im usually around so lurkers please dont be shy.  Im in Cecil County Md.

thinking about it, the day we flew out of Atlanta they had a big tornado back two hrs south where we left, hit a school or something.

And also, I saw three rattlesnakes (Rangers killed a big fat one) and a copperhead in my 8 weeks that year.  I was hunting andafter I had seen the snakes (on the road) I was scared to walk in the woods in the dark.  but now i think the snakes are probably undergrond in the morning as its cold and come to the road (where I saw them) in the late afternoon.

also, they were logging the crap out of Ft Benning. Now i knwo why.  Ft Knox moved in there, the tankers (Armor Center). 

I still hate the snakes, but couldnt kell them myself.  I let the two rattlers and one cooperhead i saw alone.   

They also had these giant spiders that spun big webs about face height on the trails.  I didnt much care for them either.

they had pigs, and i never killed one with a bow or gun... but we did eat one the was fresh killed by a HMMWV
