Greg Tatman replied to Phillip Westendorf's discussion Frame Strength Comparisons
"Chris, I think the most elegant joint is a half lap with glue and screws, yet I have never done it, as when I think of the actual load the joint demands, it's not worth the time. In the case of a wooden drift boat, if the boat strikes something…"

Greg Tatman replied to Phillip Westendorf's discussion Frame Strength Comparisons
"A fun article. For a perspective, though, one must remember that the strength of a frame joint can be quite strong, or just adequately strong without making a lot of difference. Remember, glass boats, or aluminum boats have no frames at all!…"

"It will not tow well. Probably only at very slow speeds, otherwise it will probably oscillate from side to side. Greg Tatman"

Greg, welcome aboard skipper! It will be fun to watch the progress on your "new" business. If I can help you out please let me know. We sat down at a previous festival and discussed boats and determined that you built and sold a boat to my heart doctor many years ago. Dr. Orme is his name.

I have the now assembled and used boat that a gentleman drove down to pickup the kit after he had purchased it but left it with you for a year. He didn't even have a trailer and had to go buy one to take it back to Bellingham. Then it sat for 3.5 years in his barn until I bought it and took it home to Spokane where it took me another 3 1/2 years to build it.

You can find the pictures here on the site of the process and the boat.

Good to have you back in the world of wooden drift boats!

Respectfully,

Rick Newman
