Some bloke offered me 6kg of assorted copper fastenings a couple of years ago, and I wish now that I had followed up more vigorously.
Tea tree is very good grown knees, but be careful drying as it cracks easily, cut and store the little suckers flat after shaping for at least a year and they will be OK (in the shed). The last clinker I did was for the Bi Centenary, we built a copy of the Tom Thumb at the Sydney Tech during boatbuilding trade course, all good fun. Thanks for the tip, gave them a call today & the they get em from the US apparently, I havn't done much clinker lately but was using Otter nails but they stopped making them but say the're gunna start again but with a limited range. Yep, we did the long boat too, it was in about 1988, part of the course for us then, great fun and we all learned a lot. Location: Australia clinker candy Here you go Goolawah, I shot off some quick pics before I left work today for your perusal, theres a couple of light carvels in there too, although last week woulda been better cos about 15 oldies went into storage for a while. Location: Brisbane, Australia Some of the CAD drawings I did of component parts are now re-appearing as carefully crafted pieces of assorted timber, depending on what each individual could lay their hands on. Location: Sale Australia Hey Goolawah And does she like beer (or open them) and clean fish?? Location: Australia Hi goolawah, yeah there at the National Maritime Museum, although they belong to Sydney Heritage Fleet(my employer) along with quite a few more, I gotta move em round every time they want to change a light bulb but really spend most time in maintenance of the tall ship James Craig.

Lovely to see your work progress, I live very close to you and have a workshop full of boatbuilding gear if you ever need anything, you are most welcome to use any tools I have. Location: Brisbane, Australia Well it's all very well to talk about traditional boats, but I don't suppose that's really legitimate with this project where all the design, drafting and lofting has been done in CAD, rather than with traditional lofting. I then linked the vertices of these profiles with splines (as in TurboCAD splines) to generate the outline, then lofted (again using TurboCAD terminology) these into a solid. In all of this I had to separate the hog, skeg, keel and stem into separate components that could be dimensioned individually to be made by different volunteers. When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals.

This is the third time I have tried to add this little pearl of wisdom, I guess I do not know what I am doing.
It seems like there is not enough time to do it all, boat building , RV, ing and club meetings.
I started this project in the spring of 2006 but due to hot weather and having some parts removed from my old body it has been a slow go. Dudley Dix Yacht Design has boat plans for canoes, dinghies, monohulls and multihull sailboats plus power boats. Wooden Boat Plans and Designs from Arch Davis Designs has short sailboats, skiffs and more.
Svenson's has old Mechanix Illustrated free plans Lots of boat styles including a couple of dories. Saetta Classic Boat I'm not sure they offer plans, but its worth a visit to see a fabulous wooden classic power boat. Fine Wood Watercraft Plans and boats in many different constructions including skin on frame and stitch and glue. Fineline Boat Plans for wooden boats, steel kits, plus much more from Fineline boat plans and designs.
Glen L has boat plans for many types of construction including steel, aluminium, and of course wood. Noahs Marine has boat kits and plans as well as supplies such as plywood, epoxy and fiberglass.
Spira International has boat plans, dory style drift boats, Kayaks, Ultralights and power boats. The wood was a bit too dark to see my pancil marks so I laid masking tape where the lines were to go. One of our group let it be known that he had an old (100 years) hoop-pine mantel-piece that might serve if I want to build up the stem from blocks as suggested by Andrew of Denman Marine. Anyway, I decided to offer a bit more detail about the CAD process as I have applied it to this traditional style boat.
Along the keel, skeg, hog, and horizontal part of the stem, these were based on station cross sections. The first time I tried this I discovered a bug in TurboCAD where the lofted solid got all it's lines crossed over and it looked like the task would have to be abandoned.

When you are seventy five years young you need to hurry and do it all before you run out of time.
At first everything is very confusing, then you start to get some idea of the different types of boats available. It also saves quite a lot of time since you don't have to loft the boat, and cut out the major pieces of the boat or source and get materials.
There is an Optimist Racer kit motor boats sailboats and lots of boatbuilding supplies and info.
Famous for his Goat Island Skiff and Beth Canoes Michael Storer has a wide range of wooden boat plans and designs. They also have plans for many wooden boats from a 6 foot pram all the way to a 28 ft cruiser.Free plans for a Bernarda 10 Well not quite free, you must send a photocopy of your money!! His book: Boatbuilding for Beginners (and Beyond): Everything You Need to Know to Build a Sailboat, a Rowboat, a Motorboat, a Canoe, and More! Hylan and Associates has plans for several traditional sailers including a peapod, as well as several powerboats. This was presented to the other prospective participants as someting of a challenge for them to choose a drawing and go and make it.
The species he prefered was known as Bell Barrie Tea Tree but I've seen no botanic references to this- maybe his own coloquialism for the area worked in in winning them or even a variation on his name.These pics were from around 12 years ago too.
Next step on that front is to further develop my stem drawings so that I know exactly how to cut the timber, and to make sure that it will come out of the available piece. Also keep in mind while I'm in a preachy mood, that a good set of plans will save you lots of time and if you've paid for them you can actually often contact the designer and get help. You could try calling the post office there or go for a holiday too to track him down or search out some for yourself. Hope to finish out side work soon so I can put it in the water, looks like it will be a little heavy on the bow.
