It should work when you hit this link https://www.woodworkingtalk.com/atta...uble-cabin.pdf

Thanks for the compliments. All of my boats were older boats and looked pretty rough when I bought them.
My boat buying rules were never buy a boat that you cant motor and sail the day you buy it. And it never had any major flooding. Only needs cosmetic work and not structural work.
I have seen many people buy an old wreck and think they are going to resurrect it. Five years later, they threw a ton of money and labor into it and eventually abandon it.

By the way, take advantage of your new job and learn as much about fiberglassing as you can. After a short while you will learn how easy it is to work with and the big trick is to be able to work CLEAN. After a while, fiberglass will become your best friend. Not much you can't do with it.

I did buy a new generator today. It is too heavy. I have to add 4 wheels.. I want to use for my tiny house and boat. I did buy it than the boat factory. They did do %50 discount for me.. Because I am their staff.
I want to buy boat equipment from them.
I have a empty room in my home for boat equipment and hardware..
I don't want electronic devices ( fish finder navigation.. etc. ) No electronic devices no problem at the sea. Everythings will be old fashion in my boat..

Faith - I am totally nautical minded with anything pertaining to boats.
I hope that you have the best of luck in your next license exam.
I got my Seaman's License when I was in the US Navy. it is long time expired now.
please share your journey with your new boat project.
(get a good quality sextant and learn to work it in all kinds of weather).

I have a seamans license and a 100 ton master license. They have both expired a long time ago. The test is very challenging because it is like learning a whole new language. I went to a sea school to study for my license. If you are able to, I suggest you go. many in my class didnt make it on the first go around.
I'm surprised you have to wait 180 days. Thats like a lifetime.
Anyway, good luck in your studies and just hang in there and it will happen

Also congratulations on you generator purchase. That will make life much easier.

Oh, by the way, are you going to fiberglass a wooden hull or will it all be fiberglass. These kind of projects get exciting for me. They show real goals.

What a great thread. Sailing the intercoastal waters is something I always wanted to do, but I am too old now.

Thanks, for all the pictures.

Not a matter of age, more a matter of physical condition. And if you know what you are doing, and have the right equipment, you can go on for a long time.

Example, While on the Tennessee river i met many people that were doing the great loop. Surprisingly, they were mostly seniors and usually take around 10 months to do. Some would take a few years The Americas Great Loop is around 5500 - 6500 miles. Two years ago i ran into a middle aged couple on a very small 25' sailboat. The mast was purposely removed for the trip. He had MS and she had her right arm missing from above the elbow and down. she would jump on and off the boat like a champ. he on the other hand was a little more sickly. It was something he always wanted to do and so she decided it would be fun. When I met them, they were going to a fall conference of the AGLCA. About 60 miles from the Mississippi River At this point, they were about 3/4 of the way home. So, boating can be done by most people if they want. Then of course, there are those that are too handicapped. Anyway, don't say too old. Maybe too incapacitated, but not too old.

I did buy a welding machine today.. I have no experience metal working before..
I realize
to be a carpenter is not enough for a build a boat
You have to be a little a metal worker..
You have to be a little a electrician..
You have to be a little a plumber..
You have to be a little a..................... etc.
I have to be a TEAM..

I have 3 options Tony..

1) FIBERGLASS
I don't want this option.. Because I need a fiberglass boat mold.. I did ask my boss. I want to rent their fiberglass boat mold for two or three days.. His answer is negative.. I don't want do a fiberglass boat mold..

2) %100 WOODEN BOAT
I can do that but I don't want.. Because there are many disadvantages..
https://www.ktb.gov.tr/EN-98769/wood...disadvan-.html

3) PLYWOOD + EPOXY
This option is the best for me.. I want to this option.. I know plywood but I don't know epoxy.. I learning epoxy...

Here is a link to a website where they sell plans. https://www.glen-l.com/boat-plans-ca...you-can-build/ Some are for fiberglass, some are for steel and aluminum and most are for wood and they suggest the wood be covered with fiberglass.

I would suggest you start with a small pram or row boat. That will get you some practice with frames and plywood construction and covering with fiberglass. Since epoxy resin is soooo expensive, I suggest you make one of the above boats and cover with fiberglass/polyester resin. Less than half the price of epoxy. more than worthy of the job and techniques are almost identical to epoxy resins. Glen-L plans are simple and full scale for detailed or difficult parts. The boats that I built using their plans were full size even for the frames. Have fun making a small boat then either use it or sell it. They really are fun to build.
Their website will keep you reading for many mnay days.
There are many boats out there that are wood/polyester resin and still in use.

There are many skills in not only building a boat but also in maintaining it. If you can travel with that portable welder, you can make a part-time income on it. The biggie is if you can weld stainless steel tubing. Many boaters have had a bump or two with a dock and bent up a stainless or aluminum rail. Usually cant be repaired but people will gladly pay for that bent section to be replaced. Learning 12V DC wiring is not that difficult at all. The most difficult part of dealing with boat wiring is when you buy an older boat. The previous owners usually have many years experience of screwing things up. Electricity seems to be their favorite. Usually everytime I bought an old boat, I slowly replaced all the wiring.

@Faith

I want to relay to you and others what an older man on my first job told me.
"You don't have to be a millionaire to live like one".
You can buy a car you like and take trips in it and it don't have to be a Rolls Royce to get you there.
Same goes for boats. You can have as much, if not more fun in your little boat as they have in their mega-yacht.
You are still young and dont let life cheat you. Set realistic goals and aim for what is attainable and go for it.

GREAT NEWS

You are really going for it Congratulations. It looks very similar to the plans I am used to. You lay out the frame stations, make the huil up-side down and pretty much finish it that way. Then roll it over and work on the cabin inside. I am very happy for you.
In the US, we have a humorous expression for things we dont understand. We usually say "it looks like Greek to me". In this case Turkish is close enough.
Enjoy your build and I will help anyway I can.
