Building room

Mike and I are planning on building our next boat for the upcomming season. It'll be 24' with 81/2' beam and we are searching for a work area like a barn or closed auto dealership in the south shore - Scituate - area. I'd sure love a heads up if you have any ideas that could fit the bill.

Wow! good luck with that. Just curious, are you actually going to fabricate the hull or build on a factory hull?

We're building the whole deal. It's a La Pazz 22 which we are extending to a 24.

Here's a pic of one built by another 1st timer.

Pictures are a must. We've seen what you guys can do with a pair of vise grips and a hunk of wood (transom repair at the boneclave)

Looks like a serious boat, screw el nino, full speed ahead.

Greg,

I've read quite a bit about the plans for that boat - nice selection.

You may want to look into building a temorary shed/ Quanset hut out of PVC pipe and shrink wrap. THere are many wooden boat builders who do this, people will try to put it down regarding low temperature impacting curing times/ rates but you can get around that with one of those CAT heaters used on construction sites and using the right accelerants.

There is a boat builder next to the North Pembroke post office who you should stop & see. His name eludes me at this time.

And don;t be shy about calling me whenever you 2 will need an extra hand - I'd love to help out with something like this.

Good luck & happy holidays!

Roop

Hey Gregg,
If you go the route Roop mentioned, I bought a large kerosene heater with thermostat and I have a pot heater for a propane tank. Both are open flame and not what you will want to fire up during the FLAMABLES portion of the work, but your welcome to use them if you need, they are just collecting dust in my basement.
I'll keep an ear out for a location for you.
Good Luck, and as Roop said, if you need a hand, PLEASE ASK!

That is a sweet project! I can't wait to see it, and hope that you find somewhere to incorporate a new putting surface!

Good luck, can't wait to see the pics.

Nick

Thanks Jeff and Brian,

The hut thing is a good idea and I'll definitely have to check that N. Pembroke connection out. If we go the hut route you can count on us begging for those heaters and I'll give you a 100% guarantee that we'll be asking for help when it comes to rolling that puppy over if not before that.

We'll keep a pictoral history of the project. I'll probably set up a web site for the project so I don't use up a lot of space here.

We just got the study plans and it's a full go. We'll be getting the full plans in a week or so and then the work starts.

Gregg,

Just a wild idea, but what about the old Dodge dealership on 3A just across from the hardware store in Scituate? It looks mostl;y empty, and one of the old repair bays might be just the ticket.

Then again, I'm probably wrong...but Mom lives in Scituate, I visit a lot , and these ideas...well, you know...

Looks like a beaut. I hope all goes well. Maybe I'll see you on Duxbury Bay? Plymouth Harbor? Ya never know...

Best regards and Happy Holidays!

-Doc

The bubbly sounds great Adrian. How do new owners ever get the nerve to smash one of those hefty bottles on their hull? Does it count if you break the bottle with a hammer and let the fizzy fall on the boat?

I think I know the place you are talking about Doc. I'll get the number from the sign out front today and see what the possibilities are - thanks for the heads up. Next time you're in Scituate drop me a line - I live there. Our boat never gets winterized and if you can handle a nonfly experience we'll get you out for some cod.

Gregg -

That looks like a sweet ride! Let me know if I can help out as well, it will help to pass the winter months.

Hmmm.... fresh cod.... better than store bought haddock by a mile!

Nice looking boat guys. Can't help you on a building spot, but I have toyed with the idea of building this less ambitious do-it-youselfer!
