I"ve finally found the boat hull that suited me just fine. After looking around for boat plans I settled on the "Rebel" hull from Reliable Steam Engine Company. The hull is as follows
Length 20 feet four inches
length @ waterline 17 feet one inch
Hull Beam 5 feet
Total over paddles 7 feet
I'm hard at work making a material list to get started on in the morning. Its late Spring time and my hope is to get the hull finished minus the decking by Fall
After finding out how to use the table of offsets I started with the frames in my workshop. I used a poly type glue which is quite a mess to use. Just one drop will get all over and if on your skin take days to come off. Its worst than CA to get off your hands. The plus side is its waterproof and strong.
I used dowels on all the joints as well as plywood gussets. The boilers going to be heavy so I don't want a frame failure even if I can swim quite well!
I used a lot of weights I made from old wheel weights to hold everything in place while the glue dried. The weights were remelted and poured into some muffin tins. I have several different sizes I can use.
