KYAfield: Boat plans new link below
MrMultitool: I like your boat and I would like to build 1 myself.I think my son and I
would get a kick out of fishing out of a boat that we built.I know I would!
Oleg Kamenskih: Guys! you have all the tools to build a good boat. And you build that crap
Philcage Fan: 平底船
cameron trathen: with this boat do you put fiber glass on the bottum ?
and why is it not 4 feet wide ?
Malcolm MacKinney: Why not use exterior grade GIS plywood as Marine ply is very expensive? The
boat will not be kept in the water at a mooring so Ext grade should last
OK. Also suggest using epoxy instead of gorilla Glue.. .
Tyler4762: How much did this all cost together?
Leon8744: what about the Plans!!! i cant download
MallardRidgeDucksCo: How long is the boat? Also, how do you get the 1x2 boards to bend?
BODGamekanaal: one looklike steve jobs
cajun duckman: By the way what a fantastic video.I'm putting a twenty-five outboard on the
one I want to build.Can I just use plans and just go from there to make a
William Fossat: By the way, thanks. It was a real simple-to-understand video.
eadams7451: how is this holding up with gorilla glue?
Christian E. Wieser: The plans are gone. Pls upload them again. Thx
Kris Smith: Recently, I built a flat bottomed boat and used this video as a main
guide. Thanks for the simple instruction. Pleased that our boat had no
leaks and performed great during the initial trial in a nearby lake.
William Fossat: You didn't answer the questions about the width of the boat, why you
trimmed it down to 42 instead of a full 48 inches. I also have a question
about the three-degree pitch in the back. Why not continue that three
degrees up the sides towards the front?--but if you do that, you'd need to
cut angles on both the inside runners as well as the sides for the sides
for the edges to meet, wouldn't you?--otherwise you're going to have gaps.
Or does it not matter?
Harry Paul Garcia: Does anyone have a complete list of wood that you need?
2 sheets of 5/8 marine plywood for the bottom,
6 - 1x2x12 (bottom and inside edge),
3 - 1x12x12 (sides and rear seat),
1 - 1/2x4x8 (inside bottom)
Am I missing anything; besides skills?
William Fossat: Why 42 inches and not a full 48?
Harry Paul Garcia: Update:
I am about 20% complete on my flat bottom boat. Pirogue
However, I made some changes to the design due to size limitations.
Mine is 8'long, 36" wide and 12" high.
I am also sealing all the board connections with epoxy paste and covering
the entire board with 2 layers of boat fiberglass. Then painting with epoxy
Joe Butler: do you have to register one of these boats?
Vincent Saliba: can u show how 2 build a 7 feet long boat
glenn acqua: i did not understand how you managed to cut the front part, when you stick
the sides (the curved front). how did you come up with how much you will
cut please? do you have more detailed plans please
Nicholas Almeida: Nice and easy!!
Mikey Williams: What are the dimensions on all the wood?
Justin Bob: Easy to follow, and very descriptive.
akhunter96: could you put a 9.9 johnson on that sucker?
olegrayheadedfart: Looks HEAVY.
Puertas y Decoracion: What??? were are the plans, the file is gone
Joe Butler: how far back from the bow do you put the curve in?
Harry Paul Garcia: excellent job!
Harry Paul Garcia: Update:
I about 50% complete. I am sealing all my edges, inside adn outside, with
epoxy paste. Then I am putting 2 layers of fiberglass and epoxy on the
outside. Then light sand and epoxy floor paint on the outside. Then my 4
1x1x8 of hardwood. Making good progress. I think it would float now. My
grandson will be in the boat with me so I have to make real sure it dont
sink. Testing in my pool, soon
Harold Cale: Using a 36" ruler looking at it. Thought I'd like to try using 36" wide and
only 8" long.. what do you think of my idea..? With 2 seats.. can you let
me know what you think? Thank you Tim for all your hard work on KetKY and
Kyafield.. watch both often..
Harold Cale: Why not just use the whole 48" wide? interesting..
Jerry Maulden: Hey! I can also build a Birch Canoe What'd that flatboat weigh?
MinTrinidad: Can you take the out on the sea and face some waves? Maybe if you increase
the length and hight by aout 10-20%
KYAfield: Perhaps, but the satisfaction of floating and fishing in your own
hand-built boat is not to be overlooked.
pokemonthetrainer: @KYAfield could you put metal on the bottom and sides.... like jon boats?
ebaykid1978: Bah! Just buy yellow pine strips and regular old exterior plywood. No need
for marine grade if you're just a weekend warrior and you use a good
urethane enamel paint. Save some $ and if it rots in 15 years, just build
another with the money you save.
bluemoondiadochi: he sound a bit like Snoop Dogg! i likes! + a really good vid, easy to
watch, didnt notice the time that flew by!
Lonnie Hollifield: As always, great video!!
ticon60: sure. if u'll back is a different story :)
jackbeam11: I put one of these together but it won't quite hold the power from my old
yamaha 2 stroke 40hp....It gets super squirelly when you hit 45 plus
MPH....Just be careful not to overpower it like i did
Nick Agliata: 12ft
alex saunders: it would be better if you made the hull deeper so you could put a little
westtexassand: Is the boat 12ft? and is the strips for rails 1x2x12 ? and is the sides of
wolfmang22: Tiny yellow house on Makemagazine "Deek" does this same type of project out
of one piece of plywood, it's cheaper,crappier, and provides something fast
for you to build.
Niko Peltomaa: cool boat
LiteSpeedRC: you do not need marine plywood, if you coat the whole thing in resin. I
have made several dingy's and they last forever and look great.
jack stevens: do you have any plans for it
Sam Watson: @DodgeMan360 Haha me too. im in nova scotia well go fishing sometime! lol 0
