Apr 03, 2015Bertram 38 Convertible - inspired "Dirty Deeds"Right after finishing up my previous vessel Berrinche, I embarked in this project in preparation to this boating season. Deck camber is 4.5" in 21' according to Elco drawing 3086, Type Sections, and Deck Framing drawings. I have yet to research all of the different fittings on the hull itself but others have worked on it. Daniele Klay sent me this, the results of his Elco drawing research into the self bailer outlets. Foreword : The bailer piping is noted on the drawings as applicable for PT 103-196 and 314-367.
PT 486-545, 731-760, : Frames 10 - 12 - 14 - 16 - 18 - 20 molded changed to 3", material to mahogany. PT 139 and on drawings state regular, light, (and "intermediate" on the early drawings) deck beams.

A museum model must be very accurate as it is a record of a particular vessel, is a smaller scale and I think is harder to build and get right.

When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals. Here you'll see the latest updates and additions to the site with the most recent addition first. On PT 103-138 the outlets had to clear the grounding strip, so the offset from centerline should be at least 12". Since we have to fool a camera and make our hard work invisible, they do the final bit of magic. They represent a best effort on my part, please confirm dimensions and information given here for yourself if errors cannot be tolerated.
