Tuffy Design

Tuffy by Kent Misegades, Cary, North Carolina

August 2015 - Welcome to my gallery of images from my Tuffy. I will not admit when I started this, but I am finally nearing its completion. I pretty much followed Glen-L's plans and builder guide, and have glassed all outside surfaces using the West Systems products. Paint is Interlux Brightsides single-component polyurethane applied using the roll-and-tip method, and lots of dry and wet sanding. Red - five coats, White - three coats. Parts left natural wood have 4-5 coats of Minwax Helmsman spar varnish, wet sanded w/500 grit between coats. All internal surfaces got 2-3 coats of epoxy. Tuffy builders - Feel free to use the templates here for your paint scheme development.

Tuffy by Jarle Berentzen

Tuffy by Jarle Berentzen, Hønefoss, Norway May 21, 2009 After receiving the drawings for the Tuffy in early April I finally started building a couple of weeks ago. There hasn\'t been any big problems yet and the drawings have been easy to follow. Here are some pictures from the beginning to the current status. Next up is some fairing before the side and bottom panels needs to be attached and fiberglassed.

Tuffy by Dayne & Glenn Procter, Comox, B.C. Vancouver Island, Canada 8 January 2010 This was our build project from March to August 2009, built by Dayne Procter and his Dad Glenn Procter, in Comox B.C. Vancouver Island Canada. We installed a built-in gas tank, and a re-built Evinrude 35 Hp, tops out at 28 mph with 3 on board. Thanks to glen-l for another great plan which made for a great father son experience.

Tuffy by Bruce Kiley

Tuffy by Bruce Kiley, East Hampstead, New Hampshire 21 January 2011 Here are some pictures of my first boat project. I spent almost a year getting it water ready, then another several months doing all the rest. It\'s built out of Mahogany and Merranti plywood. The decking is also mahogany with a strip of alder down the center. I powered it with a long shaft mid 80’s 35HP Mercury Outboard.
