    Hi Mike, your Ultra Pierre looks great ! I want to build the Ultra Pierre in the Phillippines Islands. I was wondering how you were using the steel on the bottom ? Thanks Tim in Seattle

      Hi Tim,

      Been Steel Head fishing, so away from the computer for a while.

      Basically the design is an ultra Pierre with Oak Frames and Plywood sides. My variation was to remove all bottom structure and replace with a 3/16 Steel bottom and transom. Steel knees and lower skirt (essentially a garboard I guess) to attach the Ply to were welded in. Built unconventionally, right side up beginning with the bottom. All done with AC stick welding.

      I have some pic’s posted showing some of the design details. Drop me a line and I’d be happy to share additional details with you if you have any questions I can answer.
