I would offer a few thought , design your boat around what you will use her for. if you are set on marine grade ply and epoxy can your boat be built from a developed surface ( sheet material) or will the shape require some tourture!

Thanks for the tips.
I'm not certain if I'll need strips to build the boat because it has more of a lobster skiff shape,
I think I will only need a developed surface.

That is true and I am aware that it's old tech.
However, I'm more interested in the design of the boat, the question about the c-flex was meant for me to learn a bit more about the tech.
My plan is actually to build the jig and instead of c-flex use normal marine grade plywood.

we build boats from 15' to over 30' their is is a market for everything,, as for skils grab a couple of the build threads, the ones that are start to finish,, and if you develop questions PM me and I will answer them for you, in short here is what we do,, , we build a base it must be flat "level" and strong so it will not move until you want it to move,, we set up stations molds ! or jig frames on a given mark determined by the designer,, then we cut wood thin enough to bend into shape and glue it all with epoxy, , shapr it to meet the transitions cover it with hull planking glued and coated wit epoxy, smooth it out ( fairing) glass it fair it again paint it and flip it over!,, then build the inside !

Ok man. I don't mind the work because it's about boatbuilding, I can litterly go for hours on just by drawing a boat.
I believe that most people don't read it because it's all to much on eachother. What I'm saying is that there isn't a rest between texts.

I can't wait to see the videos and it is true that people learn faster by seeing.
I'll start seaching for the rhino 3D program and when I get my liscense I will start helping Mike out as much as I can.

Thankyou very very much and tight lines.

Albert,

I have written a lot in the past and I have discovered two things.

  1. It is a LOT of work
  2. Most people don't read it anyway!

We plan to produce a set of videos sometime in the future that shows important aspects visually.

People want to see it rather than read it.

Thanks for the interest.

Most boat designers use Rhino 3D for design. Learn that instead!

See if you can make a new friend in Michael and help him where / when you can. You will learn a LOT!

Go for it!!!

"dedicated to your success"
