It's coming along slowly. Kinda like watching epoxy harden! *lol*







The 120 deg heat is slowing him down a little bit.

What Materials??

Am I hallucinating or are those stringers made of MDF? And what is the planking made of?

Not me Pat. An acquaintance on the designers bbs. I'm just paying very close attention to his build.

The print plans are $300 US and add another $350 for the CnC files.

Boat plan details, Lobster Boat 26 (LB26), Power Boats 26' to 35'

I find this one interesting because he's using Divinycell PH80 foam instead of plywood. There's portions of our boat, above the waterline, I want to do in foam. Pulling the equip. together now to infuse a few small parts.
