Hello from Central Oregon
« on: June 14, 2022, 12:00:27 PM »
Hello all, I love these support groups for those of us with the addiction of boats and making them ourselves.

Ive seen a few Tolmans and a couple Great Alaskans. Absolutely beautiful. While Im likely not going to build either of the former designs, I do have my sights set on a stitch and glue flat bottom dory for Pacific City use. Brian was gracious enough to assist with turning my rough line drawings into flat panel drawings, so now Ive got a stack of drawings just begging to be laid out on plywood. Given the similarity in construction, I figured I had better join Brians forum and continue to gain knowledge while I prep for the future build.

Stich & Glue Dory sounds amazing. You should post your line drawings! If she turns out to be amazing you might have some people wanting to buy your design. I have had several people ask me over the years for just such a set of plans. Welcome to the group!!

Do we  need to CNC the whole thing? That could be fun

Let me get a picture uploaded

18.5 feet long, 7.5 foot beam, 4 foot bottom, 6 foot wide floor due to the anti trip chines.
Has a small dry storage area in the bow, and a fish box butted up against the storage bulkhead. Planning on the 29 gallon Moeller fuel tank between the stringers in the console to keep weight fairly centered.
Additional storage under the shear shelves. Splashwell/transom details still to be determined. I also have an idea for a leaning post that allows for maximum floor space when wanted, but still will have the ability to sit down.

Great CAD model!  I scaled the drawings for the main hull panels, printed them, and glued them on to a cereal box. Now Ive got a 9 model taped up sitting on my desk to distract me from work. I mean keep me motivated  ;D

Nice!  I'll build a model of a GA someday ... when I get spare time!

To cut on a CNC all ya need is lofting from Brian. Unless Brian already have the flat sheets laid out in cad then it's just some programing

Got'm.  I suspect Chuck just needs to know the scarf ratio and a line where the scarf goes.  Hint: Best to have scarfs on low-load straight runs, e.g. not in the high-curvature regions toward the bow.  The glassed scarfs will never break when the boat's in use, but might if you bend them too hard during construction ... I like a patch of glass over the scarf seam on the outer side of the bend.
