The Bay Pilot 18 is a smaller boat with very much the same underbody as the Jiffy V-22, which has earned high praise from its builders for good performance and excellent sea-keeping qualities.
Construction uses the girder method (one each side in this boat); the hull is built upside down over a series of bulkheads and frames.
If i see boats like this, i wish i would be able to design boats like this, and build them. The cockpit sole in most of our V-bottom boats is made from thin teak planks vacuum bagged onto epoxy coated plywood.
Quite fine in the bow, very much so for a boat with a developed bottom, and very little chine immersion aft.
These cabin sides, like most other parts for this boat, were cut out using computer-printed Mylar templates.
We loft our boats on the computer, but it works equally well to do it on your hands and knees. As you browse our website, you'll notice that most of our V-bottom powerboats have cold-molded bottoms, which creates a better shape for fast running.
In the foreground, under the end of the stem, you see the 38 year old table saw that I built when I was starting my first boat shop. Since they are installed after the boat is finished, they can be removed the same way they go in.
Our boats will last a very long time, so we make every provision possible to make them maintainable into the indefinite future.
