Location: San Francisco Boat building workshop I am hosting a four day hands-on boat building workshop in my backyard in San Francisco. Location: Tasmania,Australia Its a great twist that Derek has - get paid to design a boat, then get the builders to pay for the privilege of building it too.
I would like to hear from any Kelsall design builder who actually finished a boat without Derek being on site to supervise the KSS method. Location: San Francisco Actually, when Derek holds a workshop the builder, who is usually building his own boat, gets all kinds of free help as the class works on part of their boat and Derek is onsite to answer questions that come up, both of which benefit the builder. Also, this design is not a Kesall design - it is a resurrected Micronesian design from hundreds of years ago.

I have been a fan of his work since his first plywood designs, and his innovative work in plywood.
Location: San Francisco The 47 foot Chamorro Flying Proa that we built using redwood took two years to build and cost about $20k just for materials, and that was in California, not in the Marianas where it would have cost three times as much. Now that we've built the proa it has become a cultural treasure - it is the first one in over 250 years. We consider that if we can teach the younger generations how to build and sail again and if we can get 500 Chamorro Flying Proas on the water at the same time once again, that we will have recovered our maritime tradition.
Our plan to get to 500 proas is to build three canoe houses - one on Guam, one on Saipan and one in San Diego where there is a large Chamorro community.
I also suspect that foam and glass will survive longer than timber in the marine environment, which would make it good value.
Even so, have you done the detailed costing of marine plywood ( not timber ) with say epoxy ? If you want to teach people to build boats, plywood is by far and away the easiest technique - especially if you want to get 500 + boats in the water. Location: Duluth, Minnesota Cool, i dont know how i didnt know that, i learnt something today. Location: Tasmania,Australia Yes, he may have started early on foam, but not exclusively since the 60's by any means.


I am still curious if you have actually done the costing between ply and foam, considering you have so many boats you want to get in the water.

It could be a late 40's, early 50's Chris Craft deluxe or sedan, but some of the details are wrong. Location: Norway Boatpicture I Have done some research on your image, and it looks like a ''brand new'' '1950 Chris Craft Super Deluxe. Building a traditional boatThis is just a little boat for use around the neighbourhood, but built in a traditional way.  Below pls. The Viking ships, both the Longship and the merchant ship or 'Knorr', could equally well handle ocean voyages across the Atlantic.
You captured the core of the working process here and I admire the way you composed it: with all these natural colours, the well ballanced parts of the environment included, as well as the absorbed carpener with the cigarette. This step-by-step tutorial will walk you through how to build a picnic table with a built-in tabletop cooler bin and replaceable cover. For all those who want to get a head start growing seeds, Gardeniere Mary Katherine Greene shows us how to build an indoor seed-starting light stand. Letting rainwater simply run out drain pipes is a shame, especially considering how precious water has become. She starts with the MSL Placid Frame Mirror and adds the MSL Holiday Frost House and Glitter Cone Trees with LED rice lights and artificial snow for the final touch.
The builder asks Derek to host a workshop, not the other way around, and the builder doesn't pay for the workshops. The traditional material was the wood from breadfruit trees that were abundant on the islands, but it is not available today due to loss of undeveloped land and the greatly increased instances of super-typhoons in the last 20 years that knock down the taller trees. The fact that the material isn't wood is not ideal, but on the other hand the Chamorro flying proa is a Chamorro invention and the design is unique in the world, so we reason that whatever material is used, it is a Chamorro proa.


The idea is that anyone who wants to build a flying proa can just pay for the materials and go to the canoe house to use the table, tools, etc. I know he has been doing foam core cats and tris since Toria in the 60s, one of of not the earliest foam core multies. With a co-operative work force and a friendly relaxed atmosphere Legend achieve excellent boats with a quality service. We have crewed charter boats in the favourite yachting hotspots in the Mediterranean and Caribbean as well as worldwide locations.
Sometimes, it can distract the focus but in this case, this is exactly what we need to know. The craftsman is a good inclusion in the scene and according to his gear again seems a representative of the modern day vikings.
The one in San Diego, with a make-shift tarp sail that is only 70% of the proper size has hit 15 knots.
I think that the background is a bit distracting, you could use a lower angle in order to avoid it and maybe a closer view.
This proa is currently in the San Diego Maritime Museum, on the water until the end of July. We will build a 25 foot proa hull and outrigger and there will be demonstrations of how to build catamaran hulls.
The reason for that number is that in the old days, in the 1600s and 1700s, Europeans arriving in the islands reporting seeing hundreds of proas on the water.
Now we want to build more using modern materials that are less expensive and for this we have chosen the KSS method of foam resin infusion (foam infused with polyester resin sandwiched between two layers of fiberglass using vacuum bagging).
Any material has to be shipped in and foam, resin and glass is much cheaper to ship than wood due to the weight and container space. The cost for the four day workshop is $750 for the entire workshop and includes coffee and lunch each day. The sailing tradition was completely lost during Spanish colonization when the Chamorro population dropped from 80k to 2k people due to disease and war, and the Spanish forced all the Chamroros off the 14 northern islands and onto Guam where they were forbidden to build proas or even to sail off the reef.
Some times, however, the Vikings sailed for days across open sea and some times, sailing along rivers, they had to take their ships ashore and haul them across land to pass waterfalls or take the ships from one river to another.
If you've never built anything out of fiberglass, this workshop will give you the practical skills and knowledge to build a boat.
