Location: The Netherlands For bonding (ply)wood to polyester, grind down the gelcoat of the polyester, and glue with epoxy glue. Before you glue the wood to the polyester, coat it several times with epoxy resin, then paint with 2K PU paint.

Location: Lakeland Fl USA Stodgy old dude that I am, I never understood why a pontoon boat needs to go fast.
Value in the mind of the customer is how much it costs him to cruise to where he wants to go. I have always thought that there was a market for a better, more efficient pontoon boat, and if you can produce your hull for somewhere near the price of the aluminum tube ones, you should be able to sell it. Location: Ontario Not sure about Florida, but there's definitely a market for a faster pontoon boat up in Ontario cottage country. Location: fl Thanks Matt Our boat will handle 1-3' pretty well,one of our good customers just took his boat from Sarasota to key west,he ran the coast to naples and refueled and shoot across fl bay,it was a 32X 10 tritoon with a 225 merc,he said he cruised at 32 mph,said he was out to the light house every day diving ,he's planning another trip to key west with a trip from key west to fort jefferson in tortougas! Location: Owen Sound Ont Canada Restoration Of Fiberglass Boat Hello - I'm new to this adventure of boat restoration so please forgive me if my questions seem to the learned - fundamental.
Is the foam required for structural integrity (along with safety floatation needs) and can current closed cell foam kits be used. I was planning on screwing the new floor to the 3 inch strips I left in place and then giving the fiberglass (existing) and light grind or rough up and then using fiberglass mat to readhere the new floor to the hull sides --- Does that seem reasonable. Location: Eustis, FL No you don't need to install the foam again, but many think it's a good idea. It's wise to use marine grade plywood in the replacement sole, though many use a BCX sheet, available from their local lumber store, but it's weaker and prone to failure because of lower panel construction requirements in these grades of plywood, but fortunately the sole in most boats isn't highly loaded. You can lay the new piece(s) on the flange created by the old sole tabbing, but the support stringers under the sole will need to be shimmed up the thickness of the removed plywood, to accommodate the height difference. Yes, you need to coat both sides and especially the end grain of all the new pieces going in the boat, with particular attention to all cutouts and screw holes. Location: Owen Sound Ont Canada Hello Par - thank you for your advice --- a few questions. The hull of the boat has NO ribs or other structural cross or long members save for the keel itself - with the old foam removed - there is nothing there but the inside of the hull. If you ran the boat up on trailer rollers without support - I doubt it would take much to crack the hull - so if I do not RE-foam it - then I think I need to create some form of hull support system in its place -- you views. Location: Eustis, FL If it's one of the old Chryslers then it has a humongously thick hull shell and really doesn't need anything else.

To risk re-post, do not reinstall the foam unless you want someone else to perform the task you are presently undertaking. Location: Czech republic Peter I know La Grace, she is czech and really great. Location: Czech republic Bataan, Sir, My name is Radka and I am from the Czech Republic. If you are not interested could you please recommend somebody who would be, but I have heard you are the best and I like your profile picture so much.
Location: Eustis, FL It's very unlikely that you'll find anyone to instruct you in how to build a 90' ship, though plans would be easy enough to come by. Originally Posted by Radka Bataan, Sir, My name is Radka and I am from the Czech Republic.
I'm attaching a couple of pics of the BLACK PEARL as she was when filming Pirates 3 in San Pedro. BP was built on an offshore supply vessel called SUNRISE by welding computer-lofted, water-jet-cut steel framing to the hull, bolting plywood strips to that and fastening planking over all. You can see that she has no rig above the lower masts, this was because she did not have the stability to carry such, and being a film vessel all shots showing upper rig were done with models.
Using an existing hull for a fantasy ship is obviously possible, but rarely does it resemble the desired shape or possess the necessary stability. I am very busy making films and have little time to design a floating film set for you, but if you consult books and magazines on Ship Model Making, a surprising amount of applicable information can be found.


If I were doing the job you have outlined, I would probably find a steel barge in very good condition and erect a steel frame on that, then clad with wood, and only the lower masts and sails. A housebuilder often has trouble with shipbuilding since there are no straight lines on a ship, and all curved lines must be correct or it looks very wrong. Build a simple ship model from a kit, complete with rigging, then think about your project in a new light. Then build a model of your desired ship and the problems will be self-evident and you can solve them in miniature before proceeding to the big project. Location: Czech republic Hello Bataan I try to send you e-mails, but it comes undelivered.
Location: Brisbane Radka, what is your budget for this vessel and how long do you intend it to last please.
Location: Nashville Tennessee OMG Don't take this but there is no way you two could ever pull that one off. Just opening a very common book on the subject produced this: Sultana, built 1768 in America.
Location: Nashville Tennessee Well it looks like in 2008 someone else had your dream and now are selling there dream cheap.

I've been reviewing fiberglass repair on line but my question is how to I fill the holes with no access underneath and do I need to have the crack level before I fill it in? Location: Eustis, FL Joe, you have some damage there, possably because of moisture gain in the wood below. The wood has to come out, because you can rest assured the rot you see is just the tip of the iceberg. The repair can be made locally, though this will just address the king post and the hardware mounting holes.
What year, make and model boat is this and do you have other photos showing more of the boat? I'm thinking about cutting in a few hatches to gain access to underneath the boat, but I'm hesitant to do that. PAR, I'm not dismissing your reply, I'm just thinking how I can get my boat back int the water and then in the off season, see about gaining access to underneath the boat. Unis of the stiched variety tends to pack closely together when laminated than the woven fabric variety. Since you are very familiar with prepregs which has a very low resin content, Unis tend to have less resin and is the choice for high performance laminates. Then a new reality slaps me up the face? NO, the materials you have to work with are less than 25% as stiff as aluminum.
Originally Posted by rxcomposite ?Unis of the stiched variety tends to pack closely together when laminated than the woven fabric variety.
Stiched fabrics allow 50% just because of the way they are made, but the fabric is about twice the price of woven roving. Others have stated that Woven rovings and mat have to be in exact proportion in the laminate. Location: Philippines Unlike aluminum whose strength is equal in all direction, composites fibers are not. But composites have higher ultimate strength than aluminum so that when fibers are aligned at the greatest direction of stress, it has more load bearing capacity.
Aluminum is stiff but stiffness is a function of thickness so building up fiber bulk will compensate for the lack of stiffness.
So by combining different composite materials where its mechanical properties are at its best, composite comes out the winner. Attached is the general response of the Marine structures as published in ?Marine Composites? by Eric Greene Associates.
This can be a tedious pain in the butt, so most just tab it back it where it was, reusing the old tabbing (flange) to marry the old to the new. It's actually waterproof, while polyester (boat resin at the local store) isn't, it's way stronger, doesn't smell or gas off harsh fumes and is easy to work with. These epoxy formulators have a host of information about how to use their products, but the techniques and methods apply to all epoxy work. Contrary to what you might think, I'll bet you could strip the boat of everything and the hull shell wouldn't move much on the trailer. When you have created the outline of your bulkhead unscrew the sticks and transfer your new pattern to your plywood.


I like Bataan very much, but I havent found out how to contact him.His e-mail address doesnt work.
In short, if you need instructions, then you are grossly unqualified to attempt a project of this scale, especially if certification is required.
She has twin engines, a bow thruster and 3 large gensets to provide power for film lighting. Don't bother to fuss over making it for display, just get the feel for how they go together and how they look. I can think of at least a dozen designers that have classic, old school square rigged vessel designs, of every imaginable shape and configuration. This generally means you have to cut out the area, dig out the wood, replace the wood, then bond the deck patch back down. It also appears you have a hollow hull, by this I mean there's a hull shell and a deck cap that's joined at the rail and forms the interior of the boat.
The woven variety has undulations that increases the bulk of laminate and increases thickness. We all hear of filament winding, fiber placement, using bands of unidirectional fibers to build up layers. It is only now that with so many composite fabrication method available can the composite equal or better aluminum. Boatbuilders should look into the materials that enhances the mechanical properties of the laminate. It is pleasing to learn that you are building these boats with a design concept different from the woefully inefficient round aluminum tubes. If you are concerned with sinking if you hit a reef or container, you can always seal the area airtight with epoxy, But this is overkill. The ship is going to be on the pond only, it will never go on the sea, but it should move a bit. A 90' ship isn't a back yard wood shed and is a massive undertaking without professional assistance. The conversion cost several million dollars, even done in Mexico with its lower labor costs. Composites can be built up in layers, dialling the strength where it is needed, or combined with other low performance material to produce a high performance product. The sales manufacturer should explain more of the high technology application rather than concentrate on what sells. Epoxy does cost more then polyester resin, but you don't need as much because it so much stronger.
Check it out, at the time humans had not figured out how strong fiberglass was, so the designs tended to lean towards excess. The ship we imagine could be so 30m long and 6-10 breadth, with sails, cannons and pirtates, some cabins for children and storage space for rum of course.

It is already in poor shape after a few years due to not being built with longevity in mind. This said and again, this type of project needs an NA, if not for the plans but to oversee the project. You have a sound hull that will never need any reinforcements other than some little bulkheads to catch your soul. We thought we could build it by using a real old ship as a base, but we dont really know the possiblities. We tought we could build it by using a real old ship as a base, but we dont really know the possiblities. I usually save a layer or two by careful placement of the fibers and or stiffener spacings. Or jump right in and buy one, and remember the more you spend up front the less it will cost you later.
