    Default Need help ID'ing ML Boatworks Hull

    I found a partially built ML Boatworks Kit on my local Buy/Sell board. Without knowing exactly which hull it is I am not having much luck finding the right build photos to reference.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    That cowling implies 88-90?? Circus Circus and an 1988 Miller High life.....I believe.

    Thank you! I think thats right for the cowling bits. I havent been able to confirm which ML boatworks kit I have.

    Still learning so much and trying to figure out what the next steps are.

    Thank you thank you!

    I have spent hours combing this forum and still there are some topics that feel like total mysteries to me.

    1. Sponson Sheeting Order (though the boat I have already has that part half done so I can make a 50/50 guess on the remaining pieces)
    2. Bracing the center section through to the nose, seems flimsy to me and likely I may be missing something or will have to fabricate more supports out of either the plywood from ML or the Basswood sticks.
    3. Shaping/finishing the nose cone.
    4. The process of fitting/trimming/attaching the cowling and canard pieces

    If you are aware of any threads on these topics I would love to read them over!

    Thanks!

    2. Bracing the center section through to the nose, ....>>> That requires a carbon fiber or aluminum (or round wood dowel I suppose)spar the goes from sponson inside through the nose to the other sponson inside. IMG_7765.jpg

    Thanks!

    I see you are in WA? Wondering if you are local to me, I live Seattle.

    Got it, thanks for the tips! I haven't ever built a boat like this... so feeling overwhelmed and trying to distill it down to series of smaller jobs I can take on as I get more supplies.
