Boat Project

Boat setup 1

Ongoing boatbuilding project. 10ft clinker ply dinghy, unless I get a move on it’ll probably take a couple of years to finish.

As they say. ‘You can’t have too many clamps’.

    You’re very brave, Jazz.

    Well I haven’t committed myself to going to sea in it yet.

    But just the amount of work involved.

    Brave undertaking! What wood are you going to use for the clinker bit? I forecast many happy hours waiting for the steam box!

    I’m using Douglas Fir for the scantlings and 6mm Marine ply for the planking. The only steaming involved was in making the inner and outer stems which I’ve already done. I used a polythene bag instead of a steam box.Got the idea from Louis Sauzedde who’s become a bit of a hero of mine, ever since I watched his video of scarphing a plank in situ using a chain saw, not to mention using a circular saw blade in an angle grinder.

    Jazz, I like the project and the terminology. I’d really enjoy saying ‘my scantlings’! 🙂

    Tremendous! Current incumbent can’t bang in a nail, literally!

    I know what you mean. People could easily get the wrong idea.
    Futtock is another good one.
