Default Tackle station design

Putting the final touches on the tackle station
The top will incorporate from left to right a cutting board - sink with fresh water and a cooler approx. 130 qt
The top will be built out of Dupont corian.The sink will have a seemless attachment to the tackle station top
I will have a replaceable cutting board insert milled to fit.
I will have some grooves milled into the top to facilitate draining the top
Starboard side will have additional drawers added
Portside will have a tilt out garbage can
Across the back will be tackle storage drawers and access door
Three across Llebroc seats

Ray..Very well thought out all the way through.. Which chairs are you leaning towards.

Subscribed. Any room for over nite accommodations in the massive console/lounge?

We are building a number of parts for Ray's boat using some one-off methods developed over the last 30 years. I was blessed to be mentored by some free thinking builders starting in the early '70's at Gougeon Brothers and later with Troy Wollard in Miami who built the first fiberglass boat in Florida and Harry Schoell who invented end grain Balsa core construction in boats. We were building vacuum bagged, cored, unidirectional Ffiberglass, Kevlar and Carbonfiber with vinylester resin and epoxy laminates from 1980 on.

As the parts come together you can see how this is done. If you should look at the photos of the 22 and 27 done previously, we had only a hull and console mold to start with, the rest of the boat with the same techniques.

We can configure the console for any size and use. What we are building is what Ray want's. Its the Golden rule.

Davey Wilson, my close friend and the rigger I used for all my big boats in Miami is keen to do a project with us building a 41, so he and Andrew Kelly have sketched up a plan. We agreed on a shared tunnel width and dead rise angle for our hulls, and made the hull mold to build 41 feet or more in length and the hull beam wider and the BOA 14 feet if desired. There could be bunk space in the hulls in addition to the pilot house. All it takes is money :-)

When is the plug going to be ready? I'm looking forward to seeing it.

I do not believe the speed or numbers you guys are hoping for, I don't believe you will get anything close to that, with that being said I hope you prove me wrong because it would be a game changer if what you claim turns out true

I thrust Otseg designs
Maybe just small gap in numbers, but would be great.
Take a seat and enjoy your popcorn

This, if there is one on this site I would not bet against it would be Jim, as I also believe it will hit close to their design weight.

"Plug"???

The first hull is expected to be laminated in the hull "mold" in a week to 10 days. Gotta keep those stage of completion payments coming!

Wrapping up the console/coffin box, structural bulkheads and casting deck parts this week.

Prepping the vacuum infusion mold for the cockpit sole.

Starting the helm/bait prep center next week and remorsing the thought of bolting heavy bits to our nice light composite parts.

We are fabricating most of the laminate for Ray's boat from "leftovers"
Materials "left over" from fabricating the infused carbon fiber hull structural grid completed last month for a 90' sport fisherman.

Forgive me, I'm not trying to be obtuse, I'm just trying to learn about different building techniques. I've been involved in the 40 Prowler build where a plug was tested and altered until satisfied, and then a mold created off the faired plug. How do you make a mold sans plug? CAD/CAM from a design? and how is it tested?

Also, talk to me about gains you see with infusion vs. vacuum bagging, it seems the latest studies show minimal if any weight savings--is this consistent with what you're seeing? what resin/glass ratio do you look for?

MakoMyDay, I meant no disrespect, I was simply trying to convey that we are past the plug stage. Certainly plenty more to build before the baby crowns.

We don't hand laminate much because I bought the facility in 2007 for a job we had fabricating the parts to assemble an all composite superstructure for a 141 meter yacht in Abu Dhabi. After 24 months of infusing epoxy parts day in and day out, its simpler for us to use that method.

Comparatively we did two identical decks for an air drop rescue boat project, one hand laminated (185 lbs.) and one infused (150 lbs.) Thats another reason.

The guys getting the 350 Verados seem pretty happy and I am glad for the extra horse power.
I see the numbers Ray has posted, thank you, no pressure.
The boats only five feet longer, two feet wider, with 100 more gallons of fuel, than when we started. 3 insulated ice box's and two fish boxes, with a free wheeling reel windlass, no problem!

We have not designed a birth although you could probably squeeze a nice one in the console and lounge area plenty of room
My last boat had nice overnight accommodations and we never utilized them
In fact they hindered our fishing,couldnt run around the boat with a fish on with out going thru and over an obstacle course
Hence the build to suit our fishing and boating style

I like the Llebroc triple Mako with folding armrests and bolster
with some carbon fibre weave accents

So which way is this one skinned? All the deflection has me more curious. If there's no plug then I'm guessing your boat will be the plug? Or, Gonna cold mold all of them? If it's a secret that's cool, just say so and that'll be that. I like the look of the renderings.
