Want to see a group of college students try to build a boat??? OK then. For a senior project this year, a group of 6 of us will be building a fiberglass drift boat. We are a mix of manufacturing and mechanical engineers. We got our hands on an old beat up boat and our plan was to use it as a mold. We spent most of fall quarter doing research, writing up a proposal, getting a bill of materials together etc...all the boring stuff that I won't...bore you with. So now we actually get to start the fun part. First we had to patch up the old boat and get it smoothed out to be used as a mold. Once that is done we will coat the whole thing in a mold release and layup the fiberglass for our new hull. Once we have the hull we can start work on the inside of the boat. I'm going to try to update this thread regularly and post pictures of our progress as we move along. We plan to be finished by June and hope to have a complete boat. Its going to be approx 17-18ft long with an outboard motor. We'll see how it goes!
