Re: More head room

Looks very functional.

What is that fluffy white stuff on the deck?

I got home early enough to snap a few quick pictures. The exterior is complete with the exception of adding a large piece of lexon to the back hatch.

Re: More head room

Don;t know where you sourced yer foam but there's 2 part liquid available that will produce quite a bit of pourable for one helluva lot less than $200/sheet.

http://www.shopmaninc.com/foam.html

In 2#, 3#, 4# and 8#/cu.ft. densities available for varying degrees of structural use . The 4# is recommended for boat decks and moderate loads while the 8# is useful for structural infill. Ya could buy enuff 2# to cast a block large enuff to damm'd near sculpt a boat for $200

I've used box-store urethane sheet for slab work. Never saw any that exceeded $22/sheet unless it was very much thicker than 1". I've molded over common construction foam; both pourable and sheet .

It works better to have a mold to build in; but outer lams are entirely possible; given that you need to undersize and work out to finished dimensions. Look fwd to lotsa fill and fairing

Might be my solution to rotten cored decks! Section out and remove rot. Clean and fill/inject. Pop section back on and clamp. Bingo! new foam core deck!

Great, except foam goes for like $200 a sheet...

Re: More head room

My thought is to use wooden kayak construction ideas to build a strong, lightweight structure. Bending thinner plywood into a curve adds lots of strength.

Re: More head room

What you really should do is make some line drawings of what you are planning. Then we could get into a healthy asthetics argument.

I guess, I don't really see that it would add that much weight. May be missing something.

I have a pretty tall dog house. It is a bit of a PITA to see around. However, I have standing headroom in the cabin in a 27' boat, so I shouldn't complain. John Vigor thinks it is unsightly.

Re: More head room

The best feature for head room is a tilt steering wheel. Ooops...I should have read the entire post. ;-)
