That's great!

Wish my school did that back in the day.

Will be watching from Maryland.

Good Morning From Wasilla AK,

We at the Joe Redington Jr/Sr. High School wood shop will be under taking a project this semester. We are going to build a Widebody hull. The boat will be sold at the end of the school year to cover the cost of construction and help to further our program in the future. We hope to give you great insight into the construction process and a view of our skills along the way. Thanks for all the support.

Sincerely, RHS Shop

If I've made a mistake, and not approved someone who is innocent, I invite them to contact me, and explain why they are on a blacklist, and what they are doing to fix this. I've actually been on a blacklist due to having a Wordpress site hacked, and so I understand, and can help an innocent person jump through the hoops to get this fixed.

Carry on, and happy Tolman Building!

Must be a pain! To bad there's so many low life's out there. I'm not much of a poster, but I do enjoy this forum. Hope to get building one of these days, keep up the good work. It's appreciated!

There's good reason why it's a pain to get approved to post on the Tolman Skiff Forum at Fishyfish.  I get a request where someone has made it through my first set of gauntlets, and then I still have to manually approve membership. Why? Because there's still a good chance that someone might not be who they say they are or have malicious intent. For example, I search for the email address the requester used, and I find the domain on several blacklists. I go to the domain, and get a browser warning.  This person is not approved.

We laid 1/4" plywood over the beams them 3/4" foam they sold at the epoxy shop. Little spendy id have to look up what it was. Then capped with 1/4" and glass. Super sturdy. I put supports under the beams to put a little crown. Its mostly still there. We laminated 3 strips of 1/4" between the foam on the seams to screw to.

Yup 1/2 green corex foam from Fiberlay. covered both sides with 10 oz then capped top with 1/4 marine...strong enough to stand on.

I used 3/8 corecell foam on the trimaran I built.  This picture shows the process:  make your curved forms, then tie them together with strapping.  Screw or clamp the foam to the strapping, then screw thru the strapping into the backside of the foam with screws just long enough so they don't stick thru the topside of the foam.  Remove the topside screws or clamps, then glass the foam to hold its shape.

Alternatively you could use two layers of foam and laminate them together over the forms like Renn tells you to do when building the pilothouse roof.

Cordell, she's looking incredible! Can't wait to see her up close sometime. You are really making me want to get out there and finish my interior...yep, still not close to being done almost 2 1/2 years after launch.

Thanks Frank!

The interior trim doesnt help catch fish...unless of course they make you comfortable enough to stay out longer  ....then maybe.  ???

Good news on my greedy splashwell dimensions. I found a trim limiter switch. I am now happier with the dimensions.
