Projects - Glacier Boats of Alaska boat projects / Flipping the hull over
« on: November 19, 2017, 03:05:36 AM »
A year ago Sayswho came over to Perth to help flip the hull.
I have made a few mod's, as a boat builder no problem, and as a boat builder of old flipping the hull is done anyway that's handy. Just get it done and deal with issues as they arise.


Here's a link to a vid my son took of the process.

Hello, we just downloaded the plans for a GA. We plan to start building a 28ft Newport at the end of March. Like everyone else we are looking for something economical can handle big water and can go some distance.

We are avid fishers and love salmon and halibut fishing here in the NW. We are in Lake Stevens WA but try not to limit our fishing adventures to local waters (Puget Sound). We enjoy venturing North to Canada and South to Westport mostly. It would be nice to venture further north by water.
We have built one other boat that we finished mid August. It was nothing like a GA but its a boat hahaha... It was an open 15ft stitch and glue skiff (its called a Tango Skiff) added pic below.

Anyway, I'm sure I will have questions and hope to lean on a couple of you veteran builders haha. BTW is there anyone in the Seattle area that has built a GA that wouldn't mind us taking a look at the real thing?

Woah, that's a beautiful finish Mark & Barb, you'll make a great boat builder! Wanna job?

Thank you!
Well space is not a problem, I own a transmission shop and have ear marked the perfect area to do the build. So 28 it is! One step closer :)
Ah ya lucky bugger!
Space, inside a workshop!
Do put an arm chair there, for nutting out those things you want to put into her.... and the odd cool one too!
Remember, when anyone comes to visit, to chinwag so to speak, and ur all fired up to complete a sertian part, put a broome and shovel in their hands! really, they'll love it, "I helped build that......"

Welcome aboard!

Yep yep yep...... I dislike flying with a vengeance! Did 2 yrs of FIFO 3 wks on 1 wk off - Perth to Christchurch.... 12 hrs from leaving camp till I got to bed..... ChCh to Perth was not better, 12 hrs from bed to starting work! Even for the few hrs before knock off time.
So, I know what you mean, there are benefits though.....
Ever fished in the Indian Ocean?
Be a beaut to put on ur wall!

Boat Building Materials / Re: Birch plywood
« on: December 26, 2016, 09:36:18 PM »
I agree with all the above.
Ply here in  a is of Indonesia and they sell it as a marine grade but I have seen a little of it behave like interior where it has been left outside even though it has a marine 'stamp' on it.
I've put that down to where the manufacturer hasn't used timber that has correct moisture content either as a veneer or perhaps where the area of the factory has been in tropical cyclone conditions.
I have ply off cuts thats been through 2 winters outside, got that weathered look and otherwise still is in good condition

All here in Aussie Brian.
My android mobile/cell ph says Tapa is installed but have never found the icon or app in it anywhere. Same with few other app's I've installed according to this peice of chit they call top tech stuff.
Ah well I can still get to post via my browser....
Well done Brian. Now go fishin!
