Seems there may be a little interest in this build so thought i'd do a build thread.
Boat is an 18 ft Centre Console, glass/ply/glass composite construction using the stitch and tape method.

Received Plans last week - very impressed with the detail and easy to follow instructions.



Oooh, I very excite



Strongback assembled.



Bulkheads being marked out and cut.

Will be an interesting thread, I am looking to make supervise my young fellas make one of their smaller models over the winter period. Have you done a buget costing for your build?

Glassed up hull should be around $5500 in materials (ply, resin, glass, fairing/filler powders). Havent looked into paint costs yet.
Progress has been slow as ive been waiting on a ply order - its all go now though so should have most of the bulkheads cut out by the end of this week.

Were the plans which came full size, and easy to follow?

Not full size but easy to follow. Most cutting lines are straight also so marking out isn't to difficult.
