Hi Guy
Looking for some one who can custom build a canoe/boat thingy for me. Some one in NSW around Sydney/Wollongong area would be nice but willing to look else where.

Thanks

if you could find 2 or 3 people who would want a boat like this built , it would reduce cost overall.
Also would see if there is a market for them here !!!.

G'day Nutter. I have the plans for the FS18, it looks to be a pretty nice boat great for estuary and flats fishing. These boats are all composite construction, marine ply encapsulated with epoxy and fibreglass woven fabric.

I actually made a couple of 1/10th scale model when I got the plans a while ago, to see what sheerline I liked, that was before any of them were completed. From memory there has been about 4 completed in the States with a couple more in progress.

You can build it in 2 versions, the standard sheer line (upturned sheerline at bow and stern) or a flush sheer version. I liked the flush sheer, hence the 1 I painted up.




You can build the boat with either a rounded chine (less hull slap) or the hard chine version which is what my model is. In the next photo's you will see the difference in the 2 versions of the sheer. The flush is what the majority of American poling skiffs are like.

Standard sheer at back, flush sheer at front.




This is the link to a blog from 1 of the guys from the Bateau site, check this boat it is a bloody great build and a tribute to his skill.

Here's a couple of photo's of his finished boat.




And this is another 1 built by Josh in the U.S.

Hi Cracka , love your scale models , I did the same prior to building my boats full scale ,

The Tinoo looks good , not bad for Bass fishing , even would handle rocky creeks and a bit of portage !!!.
and aluminium easy to repair !!
