No problem Nick! Building a boat is a lot of fun. I will warn you though it is an addition similar to Meth ( without the tooth loss) lol

I'll buy, you can build! I really think I am going with a kit just to have the molds perfect. I build a boat, cut the molds, had them lined up on the strong back then got transferred. I moved 3 times with my molds before I let a neighbor re purpose the molds and strong back materials.

Now I have my own business that has been stable for 2 years and we bought a house, no more renting houses. I feel comfortable once I get her up I can get her done.

Don't think I haven't been tempted to get in touch with CL... I probably need more gold to go that route.

Hi Guys - Wade here. I live in SW Florida and have built a canoe, 10 foot dinghy, and a 19' skiff, all ply-cored, fiberglass and epoxy-sheathed. I've also done some reasonable deck reinforcements on my 29' Strike.
I just recently stumbled into a 32-year old trawler, 41' long. I'm sure it will need something or other I can share here.

I'm Noel. I'm currently replacing the deck on a 1970, 15' chapparel. I'm from upstate south Carolina, and relatively new to boating. I'm a finish carpenter by trade, so this project is right up my alley!

Hey y'all, I'm Dan and I live in Randleman, NC. I'm building my first boat and so far I'm pretty excited about it. It's a 16ft. westcoast cedar wood strip kayak. I have the wooden part done and am ready to do the fiberglassing, but I have never done this before. I could use some help Joel if you have the time. I don't know which speed hardener to use. I'm glad to meet you all!

Hey Dan, thanks for posting. Yes, I am very happy to guide you along. Please start a build thread for your project here in this section..



which hardener depends on the type of construction and your working temps. But, you cant go wrong with SLOW Smile

Hi everyone, My name is Matt and I'm from Biloxi, MS. I've done a few gut and rebuild jobs to some low dollar trihull skiffs but I'm beginning my first major project with my '67 Formula 233. It is a total rebuild and I am very much looking forward to this project as it progresses. Thank you Joel for putting this together and providing all of the information and help that you do.

Hey everybody, my names chris. I'm currently bracketing and enclosing a transom on a 23 seacraft. I watched Joel's rehab/rebuild and was thoroughly impressed. I live around the corner from his store so I figured he would be the best to consult with and get materials from.

Good day, all.

I'm looking to build a smallish skiff and much Googlin' led me to Joel Shine and Gulfstream Composites.

Looking forward to starting a project soon!

Matt- form Cape Cod. Slowly rebuilding a 85 Hydra Sports 24'. Projects for the winter are, replace Hard top, add bracket and close up the transom

Hard top was retrofitted off an old stamos and must be 2" thick weighing 3 times what it should. We modified the legs to fit my boat, now it's time to make a modern light weight top. I'd like some feedback on what materials you would recommend. Also I've never used an existing peice as a mold.

Joel / Shine Thanks for starting the forum.

Hi Everyone, my name is Tim B from Miami FL, I have never built a boat but have followed some of yours for years. I really admire your design Joel, that would certainly be my dream boat. I recently decided to take a small plunge and bought plans for a 17' Canoe. Even convinced my wife to help. Ill be figuring out my materials and ordering them soon.

really new guy here..

Post by gunfighterF8 on Mon Oct 05, 2015 8:18 pm

Came across site looking for F233 ideas.
Currently rebuilding a 233 1964 boat with original bill of sale! Dry stored in Clayton NY entire life.
Power is 2 late 3.0 Merc's very low hours.
Cockpit deck was spongy, entire cabin deck spongy. Stringers,transom very solid. Hull was #8 built, has balsa cored sides. also sound. Cabin deck recored, working on cockpit.
Raised cockpit sole 4", to really self bail. Sealed hatches currently in process.
Using mahogany for hatch opening frames, deck 5/8" Okume glassed under and of course over. Deck braced with mahogany as needed.
Goal is lightest possible, with batteries and trim units moved fwd close to bulkhead. Will be building balsa cored motor box and changing to fit FWC .
Live bait well going just fwd of engines on stbd side.
Had a 350 powered 233 in Calif, great boat. Here in SC wanted 2 engines as offshore fishing is way out.. In between two 233's had a 28 Donzi sportsman cabin boat with 2 modified 440's. Loved the boat hated the fuel... so the 2 little 3.0's are my solution.
Background is Old- Old former F8 Crusader driver, 1200mph with no computers, GPs's and little carriers. Then built wooden yes wooden sailboats in Japan for 7 years. So new glass goodies is not foreign BUT I can use advice on tech as I go.
This site looks great and yes I see a 233 rebuild I can identify with.

Welcome and thanks for posting!

a canoe is a great place to start, I always recommend building something like that before starting a large project. Even if your tossed out the canoe when you were done, it would pay for itself in saved time and materials on the bigger project !

Let me know what you need for materials (I have an idea already Laughing ) - we have free shipping on orders over $150 and that about what a canoe kit would be (1.5 gallon epoxy, 1 lb woodflour, roll of fiberglass tape)

What a cool find !

yeah! growing up, we had to run 35 miles before we got over 100' Crying or Very sad True offshore (dolphin,tuna,wahoo) was a 3 hour run from Hilton Head. Your going to need a lot of fuel Smile

My favorite fighter jet when I was a little kid in Jacksonville FL. We used to get tours of the Saratoga. Thank you for your service.


Would love to follow your rebuild if you don't mind posting some pictures.

Hi Folks,
Mark from NC. Fish mostly out of Bogue Sound and occasionally Core Sound (really like it up there). Long time lurker on several other boating / fishing sites. I've long been impressed with several of the builders on here and have spent many hours following Shine and CL on their projects and advice to others. So, excited to be here also.

Currently, a few projects and no real time. My main focus is a Privateer Retriever (18' 6"). I really want to get this boat on the water for fall 2017 fishing. Currently all torn up...so, we shall see. Another (also all torn up) waiting for love and scrap parts is a little Dixie microskiff. This one is a long ways out - maybe spring 2018?

Many thanks - Mark
