    Default Howard 36 Bullet pics

    Went out to Howard on Friday. Took some pictures of the new 36 Bullet that they are building. These are pictures of the layup for the first one.

    The 36 Bullet will be 100% composite construction, there will be no wood in this boat.

    These pictures are of the application of the coring material, Diab Foam, that Howard is using.

    Enjoy...

    A perspective of how deep the V is...








    1 inch thick foam...

    I saw the rendering of the graphics as well. Classic in style in typical Howard fashion. Should look really good...

    Thumbs up

    Very nice. Curious to see about demand given the way things are going right now.

    We were out this weekend for a quick trip, looked quiet up the hill.

    Default Updated pictures

    Went out to Howard this week to watch them pull the 36 from the mold. I was only there to see the bottom pulled so I have more pictures of that than the top.

    These are the stringers. They are 100% composite material. There is no plywood in this boat.


    Full length stringers


    Looking back from the bow. The large black piece in the back is the firewall for the engine compartment. This is made of the same composite material as the stringers. The piece of wood in the front is only in there as support to pull the bottom from the mold. As this was the first time they were pulling the boat from the mold Howard wanted to error on the side caution and make sure there was support if it was needed, it wasn’t.


    Filling the mold with water to float the bottom out.


    Here you can see that the bottom has broken free from the mold as a result of the water.

    Proceeding to come out of the mold


    Almost there


    Out of the mold


    The bottom completely out of the mold and ready to be placed on the shop dolly.


    Just about set on the shop dolly. The water under the bottom is from using water to float the bottom of the mold.

    Close up view of the side. This boat is fresh from the mold and has not been touched at all and the colors are already vibrant.
