Way to go, Cannon!   Sometimes the hardest part is starting.  Took me a while to pull the trigger but once I did I never looked back.  We'll be here every step of the way if you need us.

I am building the Newport model. My shop is large enough for 30', it's tight getting it out, but I laid it out in CAD and it will make it. But in saying that, it is going to be 28' 6". I posted a layout in the introduction thread.

Which model?

Come on man, enquiring minds are dying to know! Grin 

Glad to know I am not the only one that has been planning a long time.

Congratulations.  it will now go a lot faster.  For me, I first saw Bob Caslers websight which marveled at his 20 ft boat he built from Renns plans.  It was a nice tribute.   That set the bug in me, and i tried unsuccessfully to get a copy of the book form 1996 to early 1998.  I had even offered to pay Renn to send me his and let me copy it on a copier.  In the meantime, I ended up buying Jim Michalaks copy I found somewhere in an ad.

I was also considering buying Neil andrews 22 ft stretched WB with 50 Honda in Anchorage lol.   I was trying to see ho wto get it back east.

So then I finally got the book in 98 which I bought a house adn then started building in Feb 2000.    Launched in June 2001.  We fished it out of Ft Monmouth NJ which was about 20 miles from NYC that summer as I was at Monmouth.   we took it into the city and around the Statue of liberty.   My only regret is not taking a picture of the Tolman with the NYC skyline in the background.  That would have been cool.

anyway, congrats!

What length are you building and what goes on top of it?Huh?

exciting times!!!

Man, this has been a long time in coming, I started planning this build a little over three years ago, but it is now a go. I received my order of epoxy last Friday. My plywood will be in this coming Friday and then the fun begins. I am so excited, I can hardly spit! Grin

I put a blog post up on my blog, in regards to my GA build with links back to this forum and links to The GA site as well as to both the Salt Water Workshop and that of West Coast Boat Works for any of those who may be interested in building their own boat. You can check it out at:
I hope that it generates some business for you guys!

So I am getting things dry fitted together, bow stem/stringers/transom/bottom panel/shelves.  Things are looking decent my total length is going to be 27' unless I shorten things up.

My question is the bowstem measurement in fig. 12-5.  the jumbo shows 12 7/8" (on the left)  fig. 12-4 the jumbo measurements (on the right)  this seems odd to swap these measurements left to right.

So far on the boat it seems like the bow stem measurement of 16 3/8 fits better and the bow is higher.  Can anyone confirm if there is an error on this page.

Once I get the stringers dry fitted it might be obvious, I don't have the stringers in yet.

To answer your question, no this is not an error. But if you like the Beddoe bow look, use the larger dimension of the standard/widebody. I have used the larger dim as well as many others.

Yeah ...I remember that Renn called trim tabs 'bear steps' ...perhaps from that experience?   Roll Eyes

Gotcha on the transom and corner bracket detailing.  Can't think of how you'd have any problems with that. 

I'm sure your fit up will work out well.  I was pretty excited when I got that all glued up.

In the direction of flex caused by the motor, plywood is more flexible than LVL or solid lumber of the same total thickness ...but I don't think it's an issue here since the dry well bottom piece stabilizes the transom in this respect.  Just make sure to use a good fillet and glassing of the seam between the bottom of the dry well and the transom ...which should be done regardless of construction technique here.
