Default 22' CC Build

I'm building a Harkers Island style 22' CC powered by an outboard around 150hp. The build process will be cold molded instead of the traditional strip on frame. The build will also be outside, I know I will face lots of challenges dealing with weather, but I won't let it hold me back. Here are a few shots of the spine/strong back I am building.

It rained all weekend but I did manage to finish the bow section of the strongback.

Adam, sounds like a nice project. Question though...how will you hold the strongback plumb and level during the build process? I would build a 2x6 and plywood platform that can be leveled dead nuts and kept there, especially because its outside. I think you'll have movement with temperature swings without using a platform...

I can't really argue either way on this. This is my first build and after talking to several people who build cold mold this was the the most suggested method, even building outside. I hope your wrong, but you might not be... Before posting this reply I was thinking of ways to strength it up, I might could add another 2x6 or 2x4 below the 2x6 and cross brace it in to increase the rigidity.

I think your frame will be rigid enough.....I just think when temps change the ground will move and get your frame out of square and level.....take a look at websites like Enviboats where guys like yourself a building cold molded boats at home....they're all on leveled platforms before they begin building the frame....just food for thought....I would build in sometype of adjustment mechanism somewhere on the uprights, just in case.

Keeping busy with the not so glamorous work like creating jig stations from the 3D model and nesting them on plotter paper so I can print them. Trying to exercise as much foresight as possible to account for issues and design in solutions or ways around them. I can't catch them all, but the more I catch, the better.
