MBCA Hannah Glitz Building Progress

Recommended Posts

So from what i gather from your post and pics..  She was being put together while you were away.  YOu came back and had to redo about 70% of  construction to get ot your standards?    What did you mean when you said you wern't building a fishing boat ..so they had to redo the job?   What had to be redone.     What part of cebu are you  doing the work?   Thanks.   And i looks like real dream.    How will you equip the cabin.  Will  you be good for extended time away from shore?   take care.

I'm thinking a viking longboat would be a great project, assuming the proper wood was available. What a head turner she would be!

Yup, agreed nice boat. 2 questions for you, how long did it take from start to finish (excl the time it took to do the initial 70%) and what was the approx end cost to build her

When she is finally completed I will be between 5M to 6M, this project has been on going for over a year, and the first builder built a piece of Basura... I then hired a new crew to tear it back down to the keel and rebuild it with proper material this time... If I had tried to put to sea with it fully loaded she would have gone to the bottom with the first big wave she ran into. The hull would have caved and the keel split (not a pretty thought). She now has all hard wood ribs and longitudinals and reinforcing timbers. I had them add a couple more longitudnals and beef up the ribs, we doubled the fore and aft Akas and secured them to heavy beams tied back down to the keel. I will install five water tight bulkheads below decks and a good bilge pumping system. Above the waterline I will install foam blocks, removeable so I can check my hull or paint if needed. the deflector that starts at the bow and runs all the way aft will be foam filled as well, with water tight hatches for access and maintenance. I further plan to build an emergency floatation system between the Akas, that I can inflate if they are ever needed... The idea here is it is much easier to find a 100 foot boat adrift than life rafts in the open water. The hull is now 3/8 santa clara with 1/2 laminated over that... Everything is fitted and epoxied and bronze nailed through out. All the wood surfaces have been coated with epoxy paint (both sides) The old Man in the family with the fishing fleet sent his boat building crew over for me to use, I wished I had known them in the beginning and hired them, it would have saved allot of frustration and money not to mention time. They are very knowledgeable and open to most of my idiosyncrasies, He has build several boats over the years and the old Mans entire fishing fleet and all the boats are still operating. So I have no doubt mine will last a long time as long as I make sure the crew keeps up with the maintenance to my standards. The next boat I build I will be present for the entire build, and I will introduce the crew to power tools. I still like wood and think it is the best material tobuild a boat out of, but if good wood is going by the wayside then I will build the next one out of steel or possibly Aluminum. I still like multi Hulls not that I think anything is wrong with Mono's they have been around along time, it just happens to be my preferance.

Yeah and it probably wouldn't cost too much for the 80 or so guys to row it.

Just curious... How easy is access to boat parts around here..?

I mean anything from stainless nuts and bolts to bilge pumps to chart plotters.. Is there such a thing as a maritime parts specialist or superstore..?

Check Broadwater Marine on Mactan, I haven't made it over there yet but their website looks promising. They advertise allot of stuff I would post the link but I don't know if I will get my PP spanked for doing that. But if you google BroadwaterMarine it will pop up. I hope this helps.

April 28th update on the Hannah Glitz, they are bolting everything together now and should be finished with that in a day or so... they are also starting on the decking. This lady will be hell for stout and should survive, it will be interesting to learn how much fuel I burn per hour getting her through the water. Based on her dimensions at the waterline her hull speed should easily excede 10 knots, I am hoping for 15 cruising weather permitting. But I could be incorrect on that, when we do the sea trials we will find out for sure (maybe by July).

This is just an update, work is progressing slowly, my wife went there and built a fire under them maybe they will pick up the pace a little. She told them to get back to their old pace or she would stop the overtime hopefully it motivated them a little. Enjoy the pics I still hope for sea trials by July we'll see.

P.S. I forgot one picture looking forward through the bridge

Mr. Mike

Great pics! How big is the boat,  (looks big) and will you be using it for charter?

Did you get Dynacast to calculate the prop? I'm interested in the dimensions, she looks about the same size as Queen X.

Over 4 M and climbing, But I had to tear it back down to the keel and rebuild it correctly after it was delivered... Because I won't go to sea in an unsafe piece of crap or ask any Crewman or guest to do it either.

Hello Mr. Mike, and Theb, she is LOA 100', LWL is 65' + or - as you can see in some of the earlier Pic's she has a very narrow length to beam ratio about 9 to10 to 1 @ the waterline depending on how deep she sits when completed and loaded out... She won't be able to haul allot of weight but should slice through the water quickly and economically (I hope). My plan has been to elliminate as much of the bow and stern wave as possible, so hopefully she won't dig a big hole in the water, we will see when we do the sea trials. If I'm not content with it I will build a Aluminum cap for the bow and bring it out to a sharper knife edge and about 2 feet longer (when I can afford it).  My target has been 15 knots in a calm sea state with a V-8 not working it's butt off, I haven't purchased the Prop yet but will go with  fixed pitch until I can afford a CCP up to around 40 " dia, depending on how the angle works out. Like I said earlier this is my test bed and eventually plan to go electric propulsion driven by a 250 to 300 KW Generator. When I retire and get my shop built I will have allot more flexibility to create magic (which is my first love). Maybe I will even have time to buy a good CAD program and learn how to use it, I'm still a dinosaur and use a drafting table and pencils when I'm in a creative mood.

Has anybody ever thought about building REAL outriggers (with minimum drag) for a banka...rather than just using lengths of bamboo which have a lot of drag and not tht much buoyancy? It would probably do a lot for speed and stability. It would seem that anybody capable of building a boat could also build some sturdy outriggers. If they were filled with foam and totally enclosed, it seems they would do a lot...not just for speed and stability...but also overall safety.
