I've uploaded some pix (with a bit of trepidation and embarressment) of my 19' sport sailboat I'm building. Location: Edinburgh Beautiful work - keep posting as much about this project as you can!!! Location: MASS Funny you should mention Flying Dutchman as that was the type of boat I wanted for this project.
Location: MASS I've actually completed planking the hull and have about half of the hull faired and sanded. I've got 5.8 OZ S glass cloth for the outside hull sheathing and will be ready to go Thanksgiving weekend if I get above 40 degree days. For a finish over the epoxy I'm going to try spraying a clear new 1 part 'water solubale' (not water based but it isn't as VOC nasty. AS per usual my timetable for getting the fb sheathing on was unrealistic and I am still sanding. Location: Ottawa, ON, Canada If you've gotten it to kick with a heat gun, but its still loading the sandpaper, I'd guess that your ratio was off on that batch.
Location: Queensland, Australia Can I ask how long it has taken you so far to build?
Location: MASS I started in August and have worked about -20 25 hours per week ( about 400 hours) up until late December when the weather has slowed me. When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals. Boat Building Academy students Anna Raussmuller and Richard Jolly built this 14ft 5in by 5ft 8in beam sailing dinghy based on Iain Oughtred’s Gannet design. However, the boat is strip-planked in red cedar rather than the glued clinker that Oughtred specified. She then restored a 50-year old wooden Stampfli single scull racing boat– an experience she greatly enjoyed, and which prompted her to look for a boat building course. Anna is now working for Stampfli in Zurich – the original source of her interest in boat building. Richard decided to have a career change after working for many years as a self employed painter and decorator. I want to make a e-book about how to build a boat with vele.Barca we built in 1977, but we did not have a camera handy, so I am inspired by your pictures.

Our Faversham-based friend Alan Thorne can help with boatbuilding projects - constructing to plans in very tidy stitch-and-glue or more traditional techniques. I like the idea of a cat ketch for singlehanded sailing and reducing the need for expensive rigging and winches which drives me towards building.


On the other hand, buying a cruising sloop with standing headroom below that needs some help will require more upfront costsand could be a more dated design.
In today's soft boat market, you can buy a Tartan 30 and put a lot of new go-easy stuff on it before you approach the cost of materials in a new build.
Some years ago, I decided that I wanted a particular kind of boat that I could not find on the market. As the years have gone on home building has become less and less attractive due to the time and costs involved. Building a simple cruising boat usually avoids inboard engine expenses and more usable cabin space per length and with much lighter displacement, could be towed home for winter work.
If you want to cruise - buy a boat, if you want to build boats - go work for a boat builder. Boat Building Academy student Tim Harrison launched this 12ft Andrew Wolstenholme Mallard dinghy at the annual early summer student launch. Tim, an experienced sailor and ex-merchant seaman, wanted to use a modern construction method and chose to strip plank the dinghy in western red cedar, sheathed inside and out with glass fibre and epoxy.
The boat was lofted, as are all boats built, as part of the course, and the moulds were CNC cut by the Architectural Association at Hooke Park using CAD files supplied by Andrew. Tim chose a cat-rig for ease of use, to free up hull space and for its pretty appearance. The boat has a pivoting centreboard. The dinghy’s sail was made by the class as part of a four-day sail-making short course at the Academy taught by Jeremy White of Elvstrom Sails. Students work on all of the builds, but BBA staff say Peter Holyoake particularly enjoyed his time working on the Mallard.  Peter came to the BBA from the Isle of Wight, where he worked for a major logistics company for 25 years as a programme manager. A traditional sign writer painted the name on the boat, together with a bright image of a toucan on the dinghy’s transom. Tim plans to enjoy Tucana with family and friends in East Anglia and the West Country, and Peter plans to start a new career in the marine industry.

I had a display at the Goolwa Wooden Boat Show in conjunction with Duck Flat and Boatcraft Pacific. We took everything down to Goolwa on the Friday and then arrived early on Saturday to set up.
We are all looking forward to the next Goolwa (South Australian) Wooden Boat Festival in 2013! I had a hard time pulling all the nails cleanly, had some tear out and was more careless than I should have been with several tuffies and damaged the surrounding wood with my nipper dykes tugging at broken nails.
The reverse transom needs to be cut back and I have all my dagger board trunk construction, cockpit and deck stringers to go also.
Anna made the change because she felt the strip planking looked more modern and it is supposed to be faster.
She has enjoyed rowing for many years, and became interested in boat building after meeting a builder of racing rowing boats based near to her rowing club. Originally from South London, Richard enjoys travel and has lived in Australia, New Zealand, travelled around India, and recently joined Anna in transporting Skye to Zurich.

Tim’s daughter is an amateur artist concentrating on birds, and the Victorian bird illustrator John Gould was born in Lyme Regis. I have a couple of tight radius' near the stern at the turn of the bilge that should have been done with skinnerier planks but they faired out OK.
I'm tracing them onto card stock carefully with all center lines and witness marks, cutting them out and then using the cardbaord patterns to trace out the profile on the wavy grained doug fir.
I was applying a skim coat of wood flour and WESt epoxy with the 207 'fast' cold weather hardener last week before thanksgiving. I'm debating whether I'll finish the entire hull clear or paint the bottom and boot stripe with part poly.
Even buying a brand new boat built in asia is on par or at times cheaper then home building. While the stuff has been working great and my shop is at 40 degrees ambient for 8 hours after applciation, I had a real problem getting this batch to kick. If you really love the work involved in building a boat and time and money is not an issue then go for it. Plus, when you buy used, you get to sanctimoniously gripe about the crappy, stupid work done by all the previous owners. I was merely filling a few holes and minor dings but I had to use a heat gun to get it to finally go after about two days.
Yet honestly I am proud and vain enough to want to be able to 'show her pretty bottom' when she heals. Overall I can finish her clear and be very vain about the topsides and even the bottom as she'll be dry sailed. Now as I sand with my PC 6" RO sander using 80 and 100 grit I am having terriible loading problems.
Theres a bit of resin cloudiness ( too cold during application) in one area aft on the bottom but other than that the clear finish is pretty good and I took tremendous pains to board sand the whole hull fair. Incidently, I some how managed to get very lovely alternate patterns of dark and light cedar without really trying.
I'm nearly ready for hull turning and have about 72 nprogress pictures I need to develop, scan and select a few for posting.
There's wisdom in the adage about figuring out what you want and finding and buying the best example you possibly can. Before fairing I squeegeed 1 thin coat of wood flour thickened resin over the entire hull filling many of the 'grooves' from the bead and cove millwork joints. When you purchase someone else's upgrades and repairs you tend to get them for something like 50 cents on the dollar.
This was a very smart idea and the wood flour (from the belt sander) is a near perfect match filler for all the nail holes.
