Mini Most XL / Re: MinimostXL build in progress
« Last post by 58 Johnson on February 18, 2019, 03:01:30 PM »
Hello and welcome to the site!   It’s quiet time of year, well, for most of the site-goers who tend to be congregated in snow country, but you should stir up some interest shortly.  The XL is not my forte,  but there  is lots of experience out there!

Best of luck with the build, and be sure to post pictures as you go along.

Mini Most XL / MinimostXL build in progress
« Last post by Dch2007 on February 18, 2019, 05:19:05 AM »
Hello,  I have procrastinated a long time for building my first boat,   Recently came across a picture of the beautiful “Fritti V” and decided That’s the style I want.  (Originally wanted to do a pickle fork style).  I wanted to wait and buy the full size patterns but I have time to build now.   This week I have built the transom, and the main frame am now on to the two Mid deck supports. Just have a couple questions on them can’t seem to find the answers.  1) is the curve the same as the main frame?  2) How wide are they? And are they both the same? 3).  How far forward from the main frame, and how tall?   Any info is greatly appreciated,   My night are now full of reading through all the posts on the xl

I have read the information from this forum. It is very useful.

I did ask for nothing as I already have all I can imagine. I just need to keep it working which is beyond the scope of Christmas anyway. :-)

Hi guys! I don't know whether this is good or bad, but I noticed some potential buyers trying to buy this lovely hydro. So there is a chance that Jan will build more of those or also that this will be sold and disappear from the scene.

Myself I think that the ugly hydros are better because it makes sure the builder can keep them. :-D

We'll see anyway, I'm in touch with the guy occasionally. :)

Thanks. I actually found a guy on youtube who's building one, seems like he just made a big print out of the plans and is replicating the curvature that way. I've first got a 20hp johnson to rebuild though so it might be a while before I get started on mine :-D

That looks like quite a project but you'll have a beautiful and solid boat.

The stem setup does look different than for most boats and I agree that it looks like it is bent upward so that you use the natural curvature the keel makes. Most stems are cut to shown dimensions, for example on the PM38 I built.

Go for it! You'll have lots more problems to solve once you start building and you'll never see them coming. Studying the plans is fun but you can't just do that to figure everything out.
General / Jinx stem dimensions?
« Last post by Floris on January 11, 2019, 12:32:10 AM »
Hey guys,

I've been studying the plans for the 11' Jinx and I can't seem to understand how to shape the stem. Am I supposed to just use the natural curvature the keel makes when I bend it? I can see the overal length and the floor works as a datum when working in the boat while it is still on the cradle,but I feel like I'm missing something. It is very well possible I just read over the part explaining how to dimension the stem.

 I did find the part which talks about shaping the keel with either steam or another method(the pages being in the wrong order on the plans notwithstanding). The description of the method that doesn't involve steam also has me scratching my head. The plans (on page 127) say the following;
"Saw down its [keel] side for about 3 ft. and with a generous coating of glue, slip a 1/8-in. x 2-in. piece of wood between the halves and bend assembly into shape."

If anyone can clarify the dimension and the shaping of the stem, it would help me a lot.

Neat boat! Great work too. Another member of SeaFlea Europe too I hope, over to you Viktor.
Hopefully we may all be able to get together somewhere this summer for a rally.
