    Re: Tango Skiff 17 Stitch and Glue Motor Boat

    David - Thanks for the encouragement. For a novice, its larger than the usual "build a dinghy" advice but to paraphrase a fellow novice and Tango Skiff builder I was left wondering what I would do...

    Re: Tango Skiff 17 Stitch and Glue Motor Boat

    Some progress. Summer came with some challenges that kept me mostly away from the build but I'm starting to get back on track. Stitches are out and I started filling holes. I also assembled the rear...

    Re: Tango Skiff 17 Stitch and Glue Motor Boat

    That's fascinating! And, it appeals to the techie side of my brain in many ways. I'd love to hear more about your progress toward laying the Tango for CNC routing.

    For about a hot second, I...

    Re: Tango Skiff 17 Stitch and Glue Motor Boat

    I played around with ideas for a few different jigs. But considering that the Tango Skiff 17 only has six scarf joints, a jig started to feel like overkill. Plus, part of the fun of this build has...

    Re: Tango Skiff 17 Stitch and Glue Motor Boat

    Hi Doug,

    I have both sets of plans but ended up going with the Tango 17. It's about as big as I can possibly go in my garage workspace without tripping any alarms from the family. I'm hoping to...

    Re: Tango Skiff 17 Stitch and Glue Motor Boat

    Yes, I think so. Even if it doesn't get remote steering out the gate, it provides an additional seat and makes for a great area to situate the battery. I was also thinking the area under the seat...

    Re: LYS Build Plans #582

    Thanks for the feedback. I'm at the "do I scarf or do I butt joint" step in a build so I was curious. I've read all the "scarfs are easy" posts but they still make me a bit nervous.

    Re: LYS Build Plans #582

    Great progress! I'm wondering what you think of the butt blocks for joining the sides. How fair are the curves?

    Re: Phil Bolger consensus?

    Personally, I'm a fan of his thought process and approach. But just as important, he gave me permission to continue to dream about building a boat myself. After dreaming for 10+ years, I finally...

    Re: The new shop build

    This is amazing to watch. I'm relegated to a single bay in an uninsulated two-car garage right now but its great to dream of something better. I'm hating the frigid weather we're experiencing in the...

    Re: Heat lamps for epoxy cure in cold garage

    I've had good success using infrared heat sources while gluing a transom from several layers. In my case, I used a combination of a 1500 watt heater on a pulley and a brooder clamp light. The pulley...
