General Discussion Tolman Skiffs / Re: sleeping in jumbo

That’s some rad as pictures going on their starbright55, how do you do that?

To get my bunks in I put the bottom bunk straight on the top of the stringers, I have moved my station 6 aft a touch to allow the bottom bunks to be exact 2m long (78.74 inches) google translation.

Then half way up the cuddy put in the pipe berths,  a pipe each side with canvas between , they are even good just to chuck stuff up on.

I like the dinette, if you have room also you could make the seat go along the side.

I put a toilet/ head in mine, and a hot shower, sink bench, oven for when my wife comes out once a year at best. It probably added a year to the build that I can’t ever get back.

ok cj8, I've been lurking for some time.  I started thinkin I wanted to build a glenn l cs 20. Then some how I ran into this tolman site.  its amazing the number of folks that have built these boats.  Not many cs 20's built.  So I followed ur build-nice boat! About 5 years ago I rebuilt a 1979 cj 7===using a 1978, 1979 and 1986 cj 7 parts.  It was all over the garage floor!  There is such a thing as  a cj8. Hence my question, do you have one of these?  Also I think you previously had a star craft islander?  I was thinking of just rebuilding one of those. Most have had the dickens beat out of them.  so in keeping with my building/rebuilding addiction, i'm gonna do a tolman. Do you have a cj 8?

I've rebuilt a few cj's.  The cj8 below has been mine since 1992.  Currently, it has 1 ton running gear with a 401 v8 and t-18 transmission with granny.





And, that was my starcraft chietain you saw rebuilt...  you're going to be so much better off with the Jumbo.  I spent around 800 to 900 hours building my Jumbo (which is just a guess).  The Chieftain took me 400 hours....  it was stupid crazy to spend that kind of time on an aluminum boat that wasn't worth anything.

Yes, Joe did the fab work. I'm headed up this AM to pick her up. Joe was easy to work with and pretty knowledgeable. He has had his own business for two years and worked as a fabricator for 20 plus years before that. He had a number of other projects going when I dropped off the Paula J, all of them much more complicated than mine. He obviously knows what he is doing, and is very professional.  I'm going to stick with working with wood and leave the aluminum work to someone more specialized in that Feild like Joe!
I am starting work on a new widebody for a friend next month...

I think that came out real nice.  You just gained some deck space forward.
