A society predicated on the assumption that everyone in it should want to get rich is not well situated to become either ethical or imaginative. The Mk Links to Dory boat plans many costless Dory boat plans boat building information including plywood stitch and glue. Tiernan adds that the reason most boats for sale today are made of fiberglass is that they can be made by semiskilled and unskilled workers who are cheaper to hire than the skilled craftspeople needed to build a wooden boat.
Another is that when we build in wood or commission others to do so, we are helping to maintain an important tradition. I wonder also whether the argument that building from wood is environmentally friendly has really been made. PS Fans of the US designer John Atkin will be interested to know that Tiernan is currently weblogging the build of a clinker-built Atkin Ninigret. PPS I’d draw your attention to some of the comments below, particularly those of West Country boat designer, occasional building and general sailing man John Hesp. Gavin, most of Tiernan's list deals with the engineering advantages of wood, as if we bought boats based on these facts.
Trees have been growing, falling over, rotting, releasing CO2 into the atmosphere for years and it hasn't caused a massive increase in atmospheric CO2.
I do see what you mean – it seems unreasonable to reduce these issues to numbers and engineering criteria when one of the key reasons we go boating is often to get away from such prosaic considerations.
Nevertheless, these issues are worth considering as I'm sure your inner designer will concede, and the environmental questions are much more subtle than most of us thought at the beginning. And of course, carbon emissions are tightly connected to economic activity and human activity in general. On the other side of the issue, some fraction of whatever carbon there is in a plastic boat will remain locked in the material for a very long time. You don't think you've been led down the garden path by what sounds a rather journalistic BBC article?
Ironing and washing, to be fair – both need more heat where cotton shirts are concerned. One interesting little tidbit I read recently is that the meat industry in one way or another, contributes significantly more to global warming than transportation, worldwide. One other nice thing about wooden boats, which has already been touched on a bit, but a nice one is gives pleasure to people, even when they aren't normally interested in boats.
If the global warming cost of fossil fuels is added to that fuel we find ourselves playing a very different game. Did you know that one barrel of oil contains the same amount of energy as 12 men working for one year?

I'll never own one of course (barring the lottery), but they are such seemingly simple, spare, aestheticaly pleasing boats. Building a boat at home requires a lot of preparation and time, but it’s not as complicated as it seems.

Items one XX of 107 If you fuck entirely things marine you’ll love this wooden sailing boat model kits. Boatbuilders teach each other, and the skills have long been conveyed by oral transmission. But if we only build boats out of oil, and keep a constant number of trees, there will be a nett increase in CO2.
I became aware of this when a BBC magazine looked at the issue and decided that the heat consumed in ironing a cotton shirt meant that poly-cotton shirts were a better environmental deal; so it seems to me that we should consider all the inputs and outputs, not just the obvious ones.


Gaseous hydrocarbons are often very powerful greenhouse gases, and if a boat needs eight coats of varnish every two years, what's the impact of that? I wish someone would give me some nice, clear well worked answers that left me knowing where I was on all this, and that I could quote when the issue arises. I can guarantee that the energy expended per year ironing my cotton shirts is less than it takes to make a years worth of polyester shirts….
And it seems to me that I've never even owned an iron that got hot enough to iron a cotton shirt properly! We should use wood because we want to, and save our agonizing about our carbon footprints for the times when it really counts.
I am not about to give up my roast lamb, but cutting my meat intake in half would do me good, and probably make a more significant dent in my carbon footprint than all the other little fiddles one reads about put together.
The difference in the reaction of people when I am paddling some rental day-glo plastic fantastic canoe, and when they see me in my little varnished oak and pine S-O-F canoe is remarkable. I seem to remember writing about the issue years ago, and finding that the energy savings from triple glazing can take a century to pay back the investment. What's needed is some sort of mechanism where the cost of dealing with CO2 problems are paid for by the sources of CO2, then triple glazing and the like would look a lot more attractive finacially. If person A manufactures a triple glazed panel using oil based energy sources the cost of energy is very low but the CO2 generated is very high.
The cost of the triple glazed panel goes up slightly because of the embodied energy, but the cost of the energy being saved over, say, 20 years is a very worthwhile saving.
Theres a tigermoth biplane at our local airport that is probably 60-70 years old with wooden wing spars that DO flex.

The design makes an interesting project for the amateur builder as the construction method is not difficult.

With our busy working and family lives I have no hesitation in saying that we own and use at least one boat that we wouldn’t be able to keep up it on a DIY basis if it was made from wood.
For example, when wood eventually rots its breakdown must release carbon dioxide and the much worse global warming gas methane. If the returns are so small, I'd suggest there are likely to be other areas we could cut down on that would make more of a difference.
If person B manufactures the same panel using energy from photovoltaics the cost of energy is very high, but the CO2 released is very low. The sides can be planked in either lapstrake (Plank Overlap) or carvel ( planks butted along their edges) systems.

So what is the lifetime cost of a wooden boat to the environment compared with a plastic one?
With regard to the maintenance I was referring to epoxy encapsulated wood like the Ninigret I'm building.
The recession might have lowered energy costs, but I can see us coming out of it with soaring energy costs.

Maybe plastic boat owners are more inclined to motor than sail, and maybe plastic boat owners are more attracted to resource hogging marinas?
Sure, we need a reasonably big car to haul the family around, but could we get away with an overgrown go-cart for the commute to work? The Dory 14 is a row boat, but the plans show an alternative transom for an outboard up to 5 hp.

Just to add a factor that seems relevant, what is the contribution to global warming made by the drying of spirit-based paints and varnish? As always, I've included a .hul file for those who wish to take a look at the hydrostatics, or to develop their own version.
Also, there is a discussion group for builders and users of the Mouse family, and for those interested in the designs at Mouse Boats.
I think this is still the first design of this kind available freely over the Web. The drawings are zipped and in .dxf format, and show various views including the developed panels - if you fancy the real thing, as I do, why not begin by making a small model?
Let me know if you're interested in sail plans and modifications for camp cruising, as I believe this hull is just about powerful enough for a small cruising sail plan, and I've got some on the drawing board.
It would have to be small, as any boat that rows as well as sails is a compromise one way or the other.


Incidentally, I've called it a trow because it's form is based very loosely on a traditional British flat-bottomed type, the Fleet trow - however, the old boats were heavily built, and had no rocker.
Also look out for the on-line books he's in the process of putting up - I think the link will be from his Cheap Pages. Andy has put up the design as a backdrop; save the image, and you have the design.
He says the boat works pretty well in most conditions, but sometimes makes him feel seasick in in waves and a light wind.  Sampans Fancy a real challenge? Just start off by ignoring the first sentence of the second set of instructions. I've paddled one of these things, and I can tell you that there's nothing like the suicidal balance of these little boats. It's interesting that although thought of a primarily Welsh and Irish in origin, these craft were - maybe still are - launched from both the English and Welsh sides of the lovely river Wye, and I understand there's an English professional soccer team that uses one as a mascot.
Take a look and see what you think - my guess is that some people may build this astonishing little craft as a very low-cost motor-sailing cruiser. From a book about converting lifeboats into yachts, I gather that traditional sailing lifeboats were not normally expected to sail upwind - I wonder how this one would do against the wind?
If you aren't one of the lucky people who have their own ShopBot, my hunch is that the ShopBot's suppliers may be able to put you in touch with someone who has one and is willing to cut out you sheet material for a reasonable fee.
As a Brit, I'm delighted to be able to publish something that originated in my own country for once! You will have to contact the author to receive details of how to download the plans. Many are closely based on traditional types, including rare traditional hard-chine UK types, and a few from his own fevered imagination. There are links to pages where Hulls can be downloaded on the drawings page, and also in the Software section below. Some people think it's a lot cuter than an Optimist, and it's probably close to being the perfect two-sheet dink.
There are also links to designs for a folding kayak, and a conventional kayak, and an excellent treatise on how to do tack and tape boatbuilding.
The designer says it performs well, but may be a little tricky in the building. Hans, an experienced canoeist and enthusiastic woodworker, says it works well, is stable and tracks well.
Hans designed the Marak using Gregg Carlson's Hulls program (see below for much more on this software). But I'm still rather torn about the issue: how do you feel about people who hide perfectly good designs away where no-one can find them or use them?
I hope Mr Beavis, Mr Sleightholme, and their publishers of twenty-odd years ago won't mind too much.
I really liked this and used it for my top-of-the-page logo, and re-drew it a little longer and beamier using CAD for the generation of a century later. I gather Munroe once told his friend and student Vincent Gilpin that he would 'cheerfully sit up all night to cut out one superfluous rope from a sail plan', and from these drawings you can see that he meant it.
Those that have been designed are intended mainly as a piece of fun and shouldn't be taken too seriously.
I'm sure the one-sheet design brief is impossible - but if you're going to tinker with something, it might as well be as cheap as chips. This is the now famous Herb McLeod One-Sheet Skiff - read the 'Big guy goes frogging' link for a smile. I haven't the slightest idea what he does with the frogs, but I'm sure my mother would be shocked if she knew about it. Another single-sheeter drawn by myself is available only as a series of coordinates that you have to plot on the plywood sheet. Use a batten - a thin, straight and flexible piece of wood - to join the lines in smooth, fair curves. Mark them and cut them out and after that it's a straightforward tack-and-tape job with a certain amount of framing. To me, it's a more useful and serious looking one-sheeter than I thought possible, and should really be thought of as a kind of coracle rather than as an attempt at a one-sheet skiff, and it might even be useful as a tiny tender. You could work entirely from the gifs and the coordinates file without too much work - I'd start by squaring-off the ply material and then plotting the corrdinates.
If you build this boat, please let me know and, if at all possible, do please send me pictures of the finished craft in and out of the water, and perhaps a few notes about what you use it for.
