Post by J.P. » 23 Jun 2011, 04:50

hi guys. just wanna share my current project.
i tried to find a topic where it fits, but this is the closest i can put it in. this isn't really a mod since it's gonna be built from scratch. well, it does kinda fit in here if you consider modding some plywood sheets and turning them into a boat. :LOL2:

here is what it's gonna look like.

LOA 12.75ft / Beam - 4.33ft.

so far, the panels are already assembled. i have taken photos, but can't uppload yet due to technical limitations. i wil share the actual pictures asap.

Looks really good. I'd probably add a bit of deadrise in the back, @3` or so, it'll handle better. How are you going to build it?

the designer suggested the flat rear so it can plane with a small motor. i'll just have to take it slow when turning.
it's gonna be built by stitch and glue, then encapsulated with fiberglass and epoxy.

This is awesome. Here in KY, folks on the Green river have been using flatbottom plywood boats for many years and hold up very well even on the rocky bottoms. I set out to make one of these plywood boats a few years ago but quickly realized that it wasn't cost effective when I could grab a tin off Craigslist for a fraction of the cost.

These are much more crude in design but cool none-the-less:

Very cool!

Considering this isn't a conversion or modification of an existing boat, I've moved the thread to the Hobbies Forum. Keep the updated pics coming! 8)

GreenRiver,
with the prices of used boats in the USA, i would have to agree. but in my country, even the old tri-hulls you guys throw away over there cost over $1,000 in my country (if you manage to find one). another thing that sucks is the price of motors. powerboats are just so uncommon, that you would have to buy new if you want to own a boat. buying a used boat is very difficult and expensive, and so i build.

waterwings,
thanks for moving it to the right place.
glad you like my work.
