Re: Hull Repair

Drilling holes on the inside looks like it may be able to saturate those ares you photographed, the method is using 2 holes, smallest you can make .. drill one at one side of the area you want to inject, and another on the very far side ... force the epoxy from one to the other, wipe and put a piece...

Re: Finished!

Nice work, it looks awesome .... you should be proud of yourself.

The big question now is... when are you going to splash it and get to feel it pull under you, then let us know how awesome it feels to paddle that beast.

Re: Hull Repair

That is not as bad as it could be ... the guidance on the web site should work well for you. I notice you are using Google Photos ... I do use the [ img] [ /img] (minus the extra space in there so they would display). This isn't required for all sites, but it has worked on all sites for me ... Proce...

Re: Hull Repair

Nope .. all I see is a "Image" marker, that doesn't lead anywhere (is not clickable).

Stephen has given a couple good references to CanoeCraft for larger repairs, if yours don't fall into that category, we really will need to see a pic to take it any further.

Re: Redbird 17' Sanity Check

Stephen, I believe in that post series, I plot the forms both at the top and bottom and explain that there is no difference between the two views, it really is just a matter of convenience when using the area you setup for plotting. WoodWorker, there is definitely something wrong with that station ....

Re: Installing Outwales

I find the same as Randy, Epiphanes needs 10-15% thinning, as a minimum, otherwise it sets up too quickly for me. I have had a lot of luck using a small foam roller to get the varnish on and then tip quickly with a 3-4" "GEN" brand foam brush, doing about 2 square feet at a time. It goes fast and I ...

Re: Redbird 17' Sanity Check

Makes me glad I made that record of lofting, thank you for digging that up and posting it Stephen.

There isn't going to be any difference in the actual lofting for asym versus sym other than you don't need to loft as many stations.

Re: Redbird 17' Sanity Check

Those tables are a great start, but you should check for typos/corrections for them, I only had one correction for my Freedom 17 Maybe contact BearMountain directly or maybe some one here can find a list of offset corrections .... make sure you know which version of CC you have, I believe there are ...

Re: Installing Outwales

I do a lot of my trim in cherry and it steam bends very nicely .... you will likely need a jig of some sort if you decide to steam bend the gunnel ends, as you will be bending in 2 directions. A bit of work for sure, but the result will be a much easier time placing and clamping. If you do make a ji...

Re: Attaching middle thwart with a mortise and tenon

I am a little late to this party, but I tend to favour removable thwarts just for ease of maintenance. If you want to replace or varnish, you just remove and replace/refinish. I have also taken to top mounting the thwarts to maximize room beneath for pack loading ... when i mentioned this previously...

Re: brass screws for hanging seats

I did the same thing, only in stainless and I used 1/8" carriage bolts . This has been fine. You are using a different material and it may not be quite as strong, but carrying a spare may be an idea ... at least for the first trip. The weight distribution between the seat risers won't be split evenl...

Re: thwarts

Hi Rmb, I am assuming you will need to carry the boat at some point, so placement of the yoke isn't really negotiable, and if you don't want a yoke there, the hull will need a thwart there to support the hull shape, so that area isn't a good candidate for seat placement. Aft of the center isn't a go...
