Boat Building Academy students Matt Cotterill and Nuh dan Per built this glued clinker epoxy ply 14ft Whitehall skiff ready for the student launch in December, reports BBA staffer Emma Brice.
Originally from the Yorkshire Pennines, Matt worked in package design and 3D branding before throwing it all in and taking up the chisel in March 2010.
Matt chose the John Gardner-designed skiff because of its general similarity to the traditional boats of the Thames – he lives in the Thames Valley.
The boat, named Nicky Nacky Noo, was made using Gaboon marine plywood, with West African mahogany plywood for the sheer strake. When it came to launch day Matt certainly added a dimension of his own to the schedule: surprised onlookers cheered as he rowed out on his maiden voyage, got down on one knee and proposed to his girlfriend Yvette. A local newspaper article about the newly engaged couple appeared under the headline ‘Bride and Boom’.
I should add that Chris Partridge of Rowing for Pleasure beat me with this story weeks ago, but it’s still a very cute tale.
With the course is over, Matt is setting up his own workshop to develop wooden products, inspired by the shapes and forms of boat building and using boat building construction methods. Nuh, Matt’s main helper on the build, is of Turkish descent but was born and grew up in Germany and is one of a number of German students who have studied at the BBA.
PS – Photographer Derek Thompson has signed up for the next BBA 38-week course due to start in March and attended the December launch day to see what he was in for.

Our Faversham-based friend Alan Thorne can help with boatbuilding projects - constructing to plans in very tidy stitch-and-glue or more traditional techniques. The Whitehall Spirit® line of classic rowing and sailing boats make their east coast debut at the US Sailboat show October 8 – 12. This classic Whitehall handles wind, waves or calm water and converts to a double position slide seat rowing boat in minutes. Make a long story short; browsing around on ebay earlier this year, I stumbled accross a Whitehall rowing boat for sale down in Florida and instantly fell in love with the beautiful lines of that classic design. So I started actively looking for a traditionally constructed Whithall for sale but none of the ones I came across fit quite what I had in mind.
I was looking at a 16 foot, eastern white cedar over steam bent white oak, carvel planked Whitehall Skiff, built by a gentleman named Tim Jones.


After purchasing the beauty and a 3200 mile road trip to bring her home (thank god she came with a trailer!) my gf and I have spent every free minute messing about the local lakes, having an absolute blast!
I started by extending the mast, using a jib sail I found on ebay and adding forestay and shrouds, complete with homemade deadeyes and a small bronze bowsprit. All the standing and running rigging is made from POSH Polyester 3 strand rope from R&W Rope. The helm was nice and neutral before, with the single sprit sail, but got even better with the addition of the jib. This is the first lesson ye should learn: There is so much good in the worst of us, and so much bad in the best of us, it doesn't behoove any of us to speak evil of the rest of us. The line can be seen in this picture, flying the flag, running down from the peak of the sprit to the center of the transom. Workboat, I am glad that you are having fun with your new rig, but I have to say that something doesn't seem right to me.
Weather helm is what sets your keel appendages at the proper angle of attack to gain lift when sailing to windward. I think there are a couple of things you could do to fix this issue before it becomes a problem. Yeadon added a mizzen to his formerly spritsail-rigged peapod last year to make her a better open-water expedition boat.
Now having said that, I think that the addition of a mizzen is a great idea and would be beneficial to my boat, so I will certainly check in to adding one. As far as the seperate topmast is concerned, it may not be exactly traditional on my size vessel but it certainly was very "practical" for me, since it alowed me to utilize my existing mast rather then having to make a new one! I feel that maybe the reason why no one else here on the board pointed this out as a flaw, is because it is really just a matter of functionallity.
My reaction was precisely the same as James (good job of explaining the importance of weather helm) The rig looks off balance.
I first had a curved sprit by accident, ala a piece of curved bamboo , West Indian style, and set it easily enough that the curve laid outside the sail. Later , I made a curved and tapered and lighter and stronger and stiffer laminated one of wood .
Initially the boat will be used for pulling only, but Ross will construct the keel and hog to allow for later conversion to sail.
Matt, who I gather showed clear evidence of his designer’s eye, and great attention to detail and craftsmanship, incorporated steamed timbers and various bronze fittings.

He had hand built it, using all traditional methods from local oak and cedar, and luckely for me, it was for sale in Ontario, Canada. I also tried to use as little metal hardware as possible to maintain the traditional appearance I was looking for. The addition of the jib definately gave the Whitehall more power and maneuverabillity and also more sail options in strong winds. I still have some more work to do on the boat, like making two jam-cleats for the jib sheets. On our last sailing outing I experimented with a line running from the peak of the sprit down to the center of the transom. I am still learning about all the ins and outs of boat rigging and it's effect so I sure can use some help. We have had the boat out in a pretty stiff breeze with some healthy gusts and as soon as there is any lean to the boat at all, you do get more and more weatherhelm and if you would let go of the tiller at that point, it would certainly round up in to the wind right away! I also thought it impressive on how you took James McM's critique and advice -- his input to this forum make him one of my favorite posters here.
A powerful, easy to use snotter and maybe an adjustable outhaul on the foot will serve you better. I would have to agree with your analysis of my boats rig and CE, as it appears that this setup performs much better than it should (even in strong winds and in mountain lake windshear).
The original Whitehall’s were the ultimate rowing boat used for commercial transport, pleasure boating and also racing all along the eastern seaboard. Well, in the process of doing so, I spliced so much rope, I could not feel my fingertips anymore! Having to belay them has proven to be to cumbersome for tacking and to make any fine adustments. Also, I believe that single sail boats generally have a tendency to suffer from to much weatherhelm rather than not enough, so the addition of my jib should theoretically improve things. Was this commonly done on this type of rig and if not, has anybody tried this or knows if it actually helps to rig it this way? Known worldwide as floating works of art Whitehall Spirit® classics feature exquisite lapstrake styled fiberglass hulls, impeccable teak woodwork and fine cast bronze fittings.
