Speed Strip is the ultimate strip planking material for many applications in boat building, repair and restoration.
Speed Strip has been successfully used to build mono-hulls and multi-hulls up to 200 feet in length.
Even with complex shapes, Speed Strip planks snap together quickly and securely without a tendency to override each other when twisted. Speed Strip is manufactured and supplied in the United States exclusively by Maritime Wood Products under license from Joseph Thompson & Co.
For more information about the advantages of building with Speed Strip Planking System, please click here. From vertical grain lumber for stringers to flat sawn lumber for laminated curved stems, Maritime Wood Products sources and supplies the best clear Douglas Fir available. We source select Khaya Mahogany and can supply custom milled planking in any thickness for cold molded construction.
Our customers include builders of motor yachts, classic sailing yachts and traditional river boats.
If you require quality, hand selected timber, for boat interiors, exteriors or hull construction please contact us to discuss your requirements. With Alacazam's hull shell now sheathed externally, the next stage of building a wood boat can begin.
Whilst there's no doubt that this approach provides a very attractive and natural finish to the visible cabin sides, we decided on maximum structural integrity by fully sheathing the hull internally with bi-axial rovings up to the underside of the deck.Several additional layers of epoxied woven glass rovings and heavy tape were added along the centreline, and yet more still where the keel would eventually be 'letter-boxed' through the hull and bonded to the floors. At 12' 5" wide (3.9m) Alacazam's hull is fairly beamy, but not quite as cavernous as this picture suggests.
Finally the fillets were covered by epoxy-glass tape, forming a massively strong hull to bulkhead joint.
In this interview, Jeff discusses the ins and outs of using the traditional Carvel method of building.  Carvel is a boat building method whereby an internal structure of frames run perpendicular to the hull, and a series of butted planks extending from transom to bow are fastened lengthwise to the frames.

I am feverishly working on my SCAMP to have it fully assembled before the Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival starts September 6th.
I want to build a community of people from all over the world who want to connect, learn, share stories and photos, and have fun with wooden boats. I would REALLY appreciate you sending me wooden boats pics, stories, or projects you are working on.

It requires half the mold stations and frames, minimum fastenings and less glue (because of reduced glue squeeze-out). Matched and sequenced boards are also available for applications such as classic Chris Craft and Riva restorations.
High quality timber is an essential component in the construction of many of the finest boats and Sykes Timber has been a supplier of this to the industry for over 100 years.
We also supply timber for restoration projects and have in the past supplied timber to the restoration of the SS Great Britain and to the UKSA for Gypsy Moth IV. This profile has been designed and produced working closely alongside one of the UK's premier boatbuilders.
Some builders of wood-epoxy boats don't sheath inside the hull above the heeled waterline, choosing instead to varnish the cedar strip planking.

A final small bulkhead right aft is a double-thickness collision bulkhead which forms the swim platform (see pic at bottom of this page) and carries the chainplate for the backstay and the runners.Building a wood boat using the wood-epoxy technique results in an extremely strong hull, as not only are the bulkheads fully bonded to the the hull sides and the deck, every part of the internal structure - lockers, bunk berths, seats, galley units and the like are all fully bonded to the bulkheads and hull sides too. The purpose of the book is to educate and inspire people to successfully build their first wooden boat.

The self-fairing, precision fit of Speed Strip planks eliminates the need for scarfing and edge fastening, while cutting fairing and cleanup time by up to 70%.
The bulkheads were cut with a small clearance such that high-strength epoxy filled could be forced through from one side to the other, eliminating the possibility of any hard spots between the hull and the bulkheads. We didn't, and consequently had to cut them out later with a hole saw.This meant that the last inch or so of bilge water can't flow through to the keel sump where the automatic bilge pump can deal with it.
The simplicity of the process not only reduces labor hours, but also allows for the use of less skilled labor.
They were held in position until the epoxy had set by driving in panel pins along each side, which were covered by a fillet of structural filler along both sides of the joint. Alacazam's a dry boat - we only get water in the bilge when we pull the thru-hull log impeller for de-barnacling, or bleeding the shaft seal, or I'm a bit careless when filling the water tanks.But now we have to sponge out the bilges where this collects. Here's a much better approach to finding exactly what you want and getting the best possible deal!
