draft at DWL:
specifications are approximate and subject to changes in function of the
mood of the designer and the skills of the builder . . .
C19 is a true offshore boat with just the right hull shape for fishing
or family outings.
The proven hull shape with a typical 12 degrees moderate vee is similar
to the boats that Jacques Mertens designed for Pursuit like the Denali
hull: sufficient deadrise to run smoothly in bad weather but moderate
enough to provide good stability at slow speed without the wild roll typical
of deeper vee hulls.
generous freeboard and the classic sheer are also tried and true features
contributing to seaworthiness. This boat will negotiate both head and
following seas with ease.
The self bailing cockpit depth minimum 26" with 12" wide gunwales,
is another important element of safety. Thanks to the freeboard and transom
design, she can be rated to a max. capacity of eight persons (USCG) and
we recommend engines in the 70- to 115 HP range. While stronger than the
typical production fiberglass boat of that size, she is also lighter and
does not require as much HP (or fuel) to cruise at the same speed: a 50
HP will get her on plane.
With 4 persons and gear, rigged with a 70 HP, she will do 30 mph and up
to 36 with a 115 HP.
Those are very conservative figures and with some tinkering and attention
to weight, she will go much faster. The 60 gallons of fuel will give her
the range required for long offshore runs.
boats transom is designed for a standard 20" shaft. The transom can
easily be modified to accept other shaft lengths.
construction is epoxy-fiberglass-plywood composite, a second-generation
stitch and glue system designed for efficient and fast building.
This building method combines the ease of stitch and glue (plywood-epoxy)
with the strength, lightweight, longevity and low maintenance of a high
tech composite hull.
The hull material is a fiberglass sandwich with a plywood core.
The builder assembles the hull as a plywood boat first, then build the
outside and inside fiberglass skins to produce a strong composite hull
without all the time consuming woodwork associated with plywood on frame.
We specify high performance directional glass and epoxy. While that type
of fiberglass cost a little bit more, we save on resin and weight.
The bottom panels are more than 3/8" thick: thicker and stronger than
the typical production fiberglass boat in that size.
internal framing is characteristic of a fiberglass or composite boat:
a monocoque structure made of interlocking bulkheads and stringers, tabbed
to the hull and fiberglass chines and keel.
the hull can be built without it, we strongly recommend building her upside
down on a simple jig.
Our jig system is very uncomplicated, self-aligning and economical since
we use the internal framing of the hull as molds. Our jig does not require
all the precautions, alignments or even a perfectly flat floor that are
a must for traditional boat building.

all our stitch and glue boats, the C19 is easier to build than other plywood
or fiberglass boats. No woodworking skills or special tools are required.
The plans include all dimensions and some full size patterns to cut all
the hull parts flat on the shop floor. No scarfing required. While she
can be build as a first project, some experience with our building methods
will save time and materials. If you have never build a boat, try our
free canoe plans first.
of the reasons why our boats are easier to build is the level of details
on the plans. For example, for the fuel system, we show not only the fuel
tanks (standard part with part number) and their installation but fuel
fill, fuel pick-up and fuel vent with part numbers, all in conformity
with the ABYC and ISO regulations. Most other boat plans do not even show
a fuel tank! We also show rigging tubes for electricity, controls and
engine harness, inspection plates, removable fuel tank hatch, foam location
between the stringers, hatches dimensions and part numbers, drainage of
the casting deck hatches, make and part number for the swing back seat,
rod holders in gunwale etc. etc.
All the plywood parts, even the smallest ones are shown with dimensions,
including the assembly notches, the rod holders cuts in the frames, the
opening for the chase tubes, the outboard clamp etc.
Plans for the center console are included.
are many options to consider but the first one should be positive and
upright buoyancy (unsinkable boat).
This can easily be easily achieved with our marine flotation foam. For
production boats in that size, the USCG requires upright floatation.
basic center console layout is ideal for the fisherman. A cooler under
the swing back seat, baitwell in the forward part of the console of better,
in one the stern lockers, fish box and storage under the casting deck,
rod holders under the gunwales.
plans include 3 different center console plans to choose from.
family outings, we may want more seating. Some of our pictures show optional
quarter seats but a fixed or removable bench can also be installed all
across the boat, in front of the motor well. An outboard bracket can be
used to free even more space for storage in the stern.
Some details can be changed or added. Standard bow pulpits, T-tops or
bimini tops, windshields are easy to fit.
The plans now include a dual console layout.
from our BOM)
BOM list materials based on our standard layout and includes a 15% waste
factor for resin and fiberglass. For plywood, we use standard sheets 4'
x 8' (122 x 244 cm). Please read the building notes and see the plans
for detailed specifications. Meranti 6566 is
an inexpensive type of marine ply ideal for stitch and glue construction.
It cost, on the average, less than $80.00 a sheet in 1/4" (6mm). Okoume
or Meranti marine can also be used and cost starts at less than $100.00
a sheet (1/4").
See our Epoxy kit, and add the cost of plywood, or the CNC Kit.
The hull can be build in 80 hours but a finished boat will require 200
hours or more depending on the level of detail and the skills of the builder.
