In boat building, carvel built or carvel planking is a method of constructing wooden boats by fixing planks to a frame so that the planks butt up against each other, edge to edge, gaining support from the frame and forming a smooth hull. Such planking requires caulking between the joints over and above that needed by the clinker built technology, but gives a stronger hull capable of taking a variety of full-rigged sail plans.

The American boatbuilder, teacher and author of whata€™s becoming the standard work on traditional clinker and carvel small boat construction, Building Small Boats, advises on other ways to build wooden boats, lofting, setting up, taking off the lines and more. The new Commemorative Edition of the writings of the American master boatbuilder which combines Building Classic Small Craft Vol 1 and More Building Classic Small Craft in one volume. Water Crafta€™s regular American writer on traditional boatbuilding, Greg Rossela€™s handsome new book maintains the same informed and informal style as he explains in words, pictures and lots of excellent detail drawings how to build clinker and carvel small craft. I want to build a strip-plank design as it is hard to get marine plywood here, and i like the look of it.
I would like some feedback if this is a good choice, and let me know if you know about anyone hvo has buildt this boat, and what the experience is. I know it is not easy to find a boat that have all this, but google doesent always point in the right directions, so that is the reason I search for tips here. What will be the main difference in sailing Ebihen or Welsfjord`s Pathfinder, compared to the Snapper boat, and which one of them would be most stable?. Thorne the Snapper boat is a traditional fishing boat , one is being built at the moment by Denman Marine.
If it is fishing , under sail or with a Put Put , then the Snapper boat is worthy of further research. David Payne's uncle, Alan Payne, designed some of the most successful yachts the world has seen, as well as many very successful commercial boats.
Fred , I have not sailed in a Snapper boat , only 'couta boats , which look very similar , only bigger.


The 'couta boat tradition goes back about 150 years , and probably much the same for the Snapper boats. Tacking a couta boat in low wind isn't easy , but it can handle some pretty rough conditions. The other boats mentioned I'm sure are great boats in their own way , its just that you need to work out what you want to be doing.
The reason I mentioned the electric power Fred is that if you don't have enough momentum to go through with a tack , then you can cheat with a little bit of urge from the electric motor , instantly.
If you enjoy messing about with engines , then there are plenty of classic Norwegian engines you could use. I think that's a good point Rob but I doubt there'd be much of a problem tacking this boat in any conditions.
She is a traditional boat , '30s build , and was raced usually with a skipper and 1 crew (me). The last working couta boat in Portland was a 28 footer Arial C23 , and was worked mostly singlehanded. The 'snapper' and 'couta' boats were both forms of fishing boat developed over many decades for use in, essentially, Sydney (snapper) and Melbourne (couta) waters. I might add, as others have implied before, that David is probably our best-known local boat designer, with many varied designs to his credit. Mike, I looked at the pictures of Kestrel, and both the pictures and what was written about it was a real inspiration!!!

Carvel built construction enables greater length and breadth of hull as well as superior sail rigs because of its strong framing. If he can't be found in his beloved boat shed you may spot him on the river rowing his boat 'Escape' to build up his stamina.

Ebihen 16 is a little smaller, and Ebihen 18 a little bigger than The Snapper boat, and Francois tell me the 16ft can be stretched a little too.
David is a very successful and capable boat designer too, and, importantly draws on his family heritage and the richer heritage of Australian boatbuilding history through his work with the Australian Maritime Museum.

From lofting to fitting out, the author takes you through each stage step-by-step, including cedar planking, oak framing, cotton caulking and bronze fastenings. If you like the look of David's Snapper Boat, I'd suggest letting him know just what you want from a boat and he will tell you very honestly whether this boat would suit you and your building capabilities and resources. As many boatowners I want more of a boat than any boat alone can provide, so deciding what to build is even more hard than desiding what to buy, since one put some effort into it ;-) For me the prosess of building it, and the joy of owning something special is most important, but it is a good thing if it is seaworthy an sails well too. As far as I know (but I stand to be corrected), there are not many snapper boats left as a 'type' or 'class' of vessel; whereas there are lots of couta boats around, and they have become popular as recreational vessels outside their original home waters. If I build it it will be because of the design itself, the size, and the construction method its designed for.

I will try to read more about the couta, espesially if this is a boat is similar to the Snapper. You need at least three people to handle the gaff rig and four or five if it's blowing hard and you need to reef.
There has never been any one particular 'couta boat' or one 'snapper boat' design, specifications between different vessels of each type varying widely.
Could be nice to sail in a modest speed, and trolling after some trout or salmon the same time :-) Rob, How do you consider Thorne`s comment on sailing in light vinds with this type of boat? It is not well suited for fishing and I have also been thinking about buying a small trolling boat. I must finish my Glen-l squirt and spend the winter preparing a workspace, so I have good time to be certain about this alternative.
