Lifetime Hobby of Building Boats
It was the spring of 1949, and a 11 year old boy just had to
find a way to build a boat, no, a sailboat. I was that kid and
can even at this time remember it as if it were today.
New Quick Construction System
Many quick boat construction systems exists. Almost all of them
are faster than traditional boat building. Compared with each
other it is less clear which system is really fast.
Seeing many of the one sheet creations out there has got my
creative juices going on these long nights. So always being
up for a challenge, I have come with this offering as a one
couldn't stop smiling
After years of building boats, I didn't think I could be so
impressed by sailing a single boat, but here I was and I just
couldn't stop smiling and saying this is way too much fun!
Tale of Ships
If you can imagine a table by the window of a harborside tavern,
somewhere around 1880, a town by the sea...the day is grey,
misty and cool with but a hint of a coming wind...
Cabin - Part Three
The assembled cabin sits on the shop floor and is being used
as a form for making the hatch sliding rails and the hatch assembly.
Sails for Fast Boats - Part Two
I thought that if I held out I could eventually get two small
fully battened mains from a fast dinghy class that would be
about right, but the prices were a bit beyond my pain threshold,
something like $150 each.
