    I am now at the strip planking stage of this build, so I thought it would be better to start a build thread.

    The design of the boat is discussed in another thread, here:

    http://www.boatdesign.net/forums/powerboats/new-design-25-deep-v-center-console-53971.html

    study plans and specs are here:

    This week I started stripping the hull. Core strips are 5/8". Strips are epoxied together, faired, then glassed.

    without re-posting all the details about the jig from the other thread, I will just put some pictures here to show the progression of how I got to this point.

    With any luck the hull will be stripped and ready for glass within the nex couple weeks.

    I just wish she was old enough to use a fairing board :)

    got most of the bottom stripped yesterday...

    the stripping is going pretty easy, even with the thicker planks. The only one that is going to give me a hard time is the one at the sheer, it has a lot of twist and bend, so I might have to change that one up.

    Bottom is just about closed up, sides will be a lot faster (if I have time :))

    You have to be a member of Google, which I will never be!

    You can view them without google, but its a total pain. I have another gallery that I will use from now on. :mad:

    whisky plank is set, now for some filling and shaping before glassing the hull. *

    Nice work Joel. Is the jig reusable?

    Whiskey plank! Oh I get it! :p

    Yes, it can be reused. A few of the molds will need to re-cut

    Slow but steady progress. *The last of the hull bottom glass is in. *Hull bottom glass is 2 x DB1700, with some places having 4 layers (overlaps)

    Next is the transom. *Before glassing the transom I need to get started on the sides (transom glass needs to overlap the sides). *Picture shows dry fitting the first layer of inside glass layer. *I will be laminating the sides of the hull in transverse strips of biaxial cloth. *Wetting out a single long piece of glass on the inside is asking for trouble when working by yourself in this heat. *Laying the glass this way means a little waste (with the overlaps), but thats not so important as having a good quality lamination.
