Why yes I have Bill. I even have it bookmarked on my phone. The only thing I don't like is the requirements to use ABYC standards but we have to pay up the wazzuu for it. I am beginning to see why Peter designed the Easy's the way he did. Keeping the fuel and the engines outside was pretty smart. And safer too.

The ABYC's fees are ridiculous, but I guess they aren't meant for the one off boat builder, but rather the industry. I think if you followed the guidelines in newboatbuilders.com you would be pretty close to ABYC though.

Beav,
Just a heads up with regards to frame 2. the sloping top edge of the cutout forms the bottom of the Gas bottle locker. Peter only uses the smaller 4.5kg gas bottle, If you wish to use the larger 9kg gas bottles you will need to lower the floor (the top sloping edge) by about 120mm but you should check out the heights of the gas bottles you have available over there. I went for the 9kg bottles because not only for capacity but they were all the same uniform dimensions, I found there were different heights in the 4.5 kg bottles especially in our swap and go self serve stations. If you found yourself with the taller 4.5kg bottled you wont be able to close the hatch.
However if you are planning to put the gas bottles elsewhere please disregard the comments above.
John

Thanks John.
I am just about at the stage where I setup the build frame and start the hulls. Not sure about the building shed tho. I'll figure something out. We get high winds here and a temporary building tent would have to be pretty strong or protected from the wind.
I haven't bought my epoxy yet either. Maybe next week. I'm leaning towards system three epoxy as they have a wide variety of products including a fairing compound. Any thoughts??

My only suggestion regarding the epoxy is once you have found a supplier/brand, stay with that type. You will get extremely familiar with mixing ratios by eye and all the little quirks of the epoxy.
