oar lock location

I am making a one man boat. I am using design aspects from a lot of different styles and contours. My question is, How do you determine where the oar locks to be, and how does that relate to the seat location?

Epoxy vs Poly

Which is better, Epoxy or Poly? Secondly as you build the boat would it be wise to give every piece a coat of epoxy/poly before it gets installed? My logic for asking is, water likes nooks and cranked due to capillary action and since so many of the pieces will have a tight fit initially, but over time with the boat doing a little twisting this could cause cracks in the vial coat(s) of finish, thus leaving places for eater to hide. I also realize if you put too much epoxy/poly on you could have… Continue

New to boat building

I am brand new to boats and boat building. I have a pretty good idea of how to do what I want to do with a boat but have no idea what the terms used mean, i.e. rocker, length at beam. As well as how these boats are dimensioned. Should I buy a set of plans to get dimensions or are there specific formulas. If the boat is (x) long than it should be (z) wide? My reasons for not wanting to buy plans is all I want from them are the basic "shell dimensions.

How does it work? Very well sometimes, very poorly at other times. I have since moved on to using a belt sander. Stack the sheets in a staggered pile at the angle you want, and belt sand until all the ply lines are straight and parallel. Most of these systems are really hard to explain, far easier to demonstrate. I do elaborate in the comment thread of the Mass Scarfing jig post on my blog. Can't think how to explain it any better. Best of luck.

Christian, thanks for the comments. I had a little advantage when it came to building the boat, I owen a custom cabinet shop. Also, I only worked on it when business was slow (just over two years) so I took my time and looked at a lot of pictures from this site to get the best ideal/look/function. Good luck if you are going to jump in and start building a boat.
