Looking good! Dog house is definitely the way to go. One recommendation is add a return on the roof to stiffen it up and prevent water from dripping down your back on wet days..kinda hard to see but hope this clears things up

I was out fishing on the shoe on Sat, There was a whaler out there with the tiny house on it. It may have been an 18 footer, it looked nice, but i'm not sure it provides a lot of protection if there is more than one person on the boat. Iliked the look.

Dude, do you have two boat projects going?

Oh my, I will pray for you! One is enough.

At one point I had 4....Now I'm full focus on the whaler and the bayrunner can sit and rot until I get some blood on the decks of the whaler. But I just picked up a project golf cart I need to get running too. I may have a problem (at least that's what my lady says)

Don't feel bad. I went from rebuilding the boat to rebuilding my RV. Not a "lipstick" job, more full on rehab.

My neighbors think I'm nuts. I agree.

Oh my neighbors know I’m nuts. My toy hauler is in one neighbors driveway, and my sand car is as well. Then at one point the whaler was in another neighbors driveway while I had 3 boats in my driveway. Luckily they are all cool and let me leave my stuff thrown about the neighborhood. I need to consolidate at some point. But that’s unlikely

Here’s a quick update shot. Interior is glassed with 2 layers on all joints, and 3 layers in corners of 1708. Inside the console just a single layer of 1708. Exterior is started, whole thing will get 2 layers of 1708. Then I’ll finish the console with a layer of 10oz and then CSM

You need a better solution for the edges of the wood. That is where the failure will start. I'm not sure what the solution is. Maybe your suppose to start by just wrapping all of the edges with glass first. Typically they end up with little or no glass on them after sanding and grinding with the wood exposed. Maybe they make a 1/4" or 3/8" wide glass tape. then you could bond the edges of all of the wood first. Then grind them, wrap them in glass and build from there.

Many of them already have 10oz tape on them. Once completely glassed all edges will get another layer of 10oz tape, as well as CSM. No wood will be exposed

You damn sure aren't afraid of using glass! What do you got, 3 layers of 1708, 10oz cloth and then 1.5oz CSM? That ought to be a stiff sob...

Everything has at least 2 layers of 1708, most joints will have 3. Interior only has 1 layer of 1708. It’ll all get 10oz on the exterior, and the CSM will really just be for ease of fairing since it doesn’t add much strength. But yea it’s a lot of glass, I’m over it at this point haha. Hopefully it’s not too heavy.

Nice!
better than wasting time chasin' finicky BFT achieving nothing! LOL

Carry On Skipper!

I’m still angry because I keep seeing people get em! Oh well, I’ll finish this and then go chase em

Did I say I was done with 1708? Not yet… Decided to add another layer and more tape to several places. All major structural joints got another layer of tape, helm got a sheet, roof got a sheet, and then topped it off with 10oz. A couple more spots to hit tomorrow and I’ll be wrapped up with glass

Also, the custom 35 gallon bait tank from blue water is in. Square exterior with a round interior, built from the shell of their 45 gallon with a slightly raised floor. I think it’ll be perfect for this boat. Marking where it’ll land

Used a 3-1/4” hole saw to cut out the floor

Goes to show the bond and thickness of the deck. Very happy with it, a full 1” thick and no gaps in the bond.

Epoxied the exposed wood and ran the hoses. I’ll bolt down some slats to mount the tank to soon
