PT Watercrafta€™s PT Eleven, 11ft Nesting Dinghy is a unique, light-weight, great performance dinghy.
Since 2011, sales for the PT 11 kit have shown us that the top 3 items listed here really belong to the base kit and as of January 1st, 2016, they are included.
Leather Pads: These pads offer chafe resistance at key positions where the hull halves touch when nested. We offer them this way for safetya€™s sake, as a router table, something not everyone will have, is used to round the edges. By sailing performance, I mean the ability to sail well, of course, but also the ease of using the parts associated with sailing. The foils kit (daggerboard and kick-up rudder) for the PT 11 are a machined NACA foil section. Complete rig: includes a 2-part carbon mast + boom, all associated hardware and running rigging, sail and bag. PT 11 Sails are designed by Sandy Goodall and prototyped by Sean Rankins of NW Sails & Canvas. Tiller & Hiking stick blanks with no shaping are also available if you want to shape your own. The PT 11 can self steer upwind with the hiking stick (pre-cut to the right length) placed to leeward as shown below. PT Watercraft offers kits for new and unique boat designs that are efficient, functional, modern & attractive. Our focus is on creating boats that answer the needs of serious cruisers, weekend camp cruisers and environmentally conscious boaters, sail and motor. I have a Key Largo boat, The hatches suck and constantly let water in, any tips, tricks or advice to make them water tight?
I had the same thing on my last boat and this solved the problem - it's called hatch seal and I cut and put it on with 4200, I think, any good adhesive will work. Buy weather stripping material from Lowes or Home Depot and save 50% of the price you pay at a marine store.

Location: South Florida I am also in the process of re-building my front hatch, and with a sim. When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals.
Can anyone comment on how waterproof the main hatch on the Tiki 21 is in a sea or in strong rain? I have come to this conclusion about sailing small boats (and perhaps large boats): keep the hatches and portlights closed while sailing! While a spacious boat, the bow deck on this Ranger was lacking, both in comfortable standing space and in storage.
The owner had only the one bow hatch for tackle and accessory storage, and was quickly outgrowing the space.
This deck extension provides more usable casting space, yet still leaves much open cockpit space for a large bait tank, all while providing ample storage for batteries and gear.
Riveted hinge construction with formed and welded doors in your choice of polished diamond plate or heavy gauge plate. We also understand that there are many skilled builders who have the skills and the time to create their own a€?extrasa€?. On the right is the hatch coaming with gasket notch, 42a€? gasket, 5 machined Delrin turn dogs and fasteners. The risers provide a good rowing height based on the industry standard, and, without interfering with the nested package height.
A positioning template is included with the basic PT 11 kit and gluing instructions are in the buildera€™s manual.
The PT 11 foil blades are machined in 2 halves of high grade Okoume plywood, and then glued together using vacuum pressure in our shop. Most of the PT 11 builders have chosen our rig and foils and I think that the sailing performance attracts people to the boat. Setting up and breaking down a sailing rig is always a bit of work, especially if you are doing it alongside a cruising boat, but our rig is as light and easy to use as possible.

Brown with various design collaborations with Paul Bieker and Eric Jolley of Bieker Boats, Jim Franken of Franken Design, Brandon Davis of Turn Point Design, Paul Zeusche of Townsend Bay Marine, Sean Rankins of NW Sails. Whether you're researching a new boat, or are a seasoned Captain, you'll find The Hull Truth Boating & Fishing Message Forum contains a wealth of information from Boaters and Sportfishermen around the world. As you can see in the photo, my hatches are one piece instead of the standard two-piece hatch. There are many variations, from home-built to factory-produced, cheap to outrageously expensive. If the water surface is flat, with no swells, well, maybe deviate from this prescription a bit.
The builder applies fiberglass and does the finish work and assembly of the kick up rudder system. The two piece mast & boom are made from carbon fiber and together with the sail weigh 13 pounds.

This is great when it is warm and calm, but when the wind comes up they become unsafe and have to be kept shut tight.
I may change them to the standard design, but am curious if they leak at the join in the middle?
This is not great for general sailing because you have to have them shut when the wind comes up - on the other hand they are very dry (no join to leak water).
