"Hmmm. I don't think it's a dumb question but it IS something that would require analysis of the design to ensure there are no unintended consequences. Stability for example. If you don't get an answer here then try asking on…"

"Thanks for all the input, much appreciated. Maybe a dumb question - can one increase existing measurements say by 10% or 200mm to make a dingy bigger? Or how do i do it - say length of 2.2 stretch to 2.8 and width of 1.1m to 1.4m ??? Thanks for the…"

"I have been wanting to build one of JB Watercraft Designs for some time.  They look easy and the cost of plans is reasonable. The Unicat designs are intriguing.  https://www.jbwatercraft.com/"

Lovako replied to Ken Blandford's discussion Pahi42 cockpit mounting
"It would work as Robert sugested. I built a bigger box to fit between beam 2 and 3 and a smaller one between beam 3 and 4 for my stearing setup. What I did was to lower the boxes from the top till it just cleared the top beam, then I drew the beam…"

Roger replied to Lovako's discussion Ply Construction
"I know from my own projects that 6mm (1/4") plywood glassed on both sides with 6oz cloth is extremely stiff and strong. I don't have any data, but would expect it to be at least as strong as 9mm ply, but is also better protected from the…"

Dean Wilkerson replied to Lovako's discussion Ply Construction
"Chopped Strand Mat adds weight, but very little strength.  Fiberglass epoxy adds an immense amount of strength, so much so that foam sandwich can be a direct replacement for plywood in many instances.  There is some disagreement as to what…"

Ian R replied to Lovako's discussion Ply Construction
"Hello again Lovato: Yes you may have built a 42ft boat, but let's face it, one boat is not the same as another. My boat is almost 30 yrs old and looks new: how about your boat? I have got to laugh, you even try to ban me for commenting on…"

Dean Wilkerson replied to Lovako's discussion Ply Construction
"I agree that CSM is a poor choice, but woven fiber makes sense.     However there is another option if stiffness is the goal, and that is foam sandwich.    You could also use thin ply on one face in lieu of glass…"
