Frosty Previous Member   I always thought that 'Naga pelangi was built in Trengganu. She was sold on to another Englishman and is now a charter vessel , I see her around occasionaly.
Although her scuppers were always awash she would go so far and no further, After a while one became quite confident in her capabilities.
They say that the bark caulking will last the entire life of the boat, being over a hundred years. Price-wise and practically, would this sort of construction be suited to some more modern designs, and even the addition of some modern materials in parts (epoxy, carbon etc)? Ie, could the average person consider this sort of construction for something like a family round-the-worlder.
Not that I am in the position to do so now or at any time in the near future, but I have for a long time thought about getting a boat such as this (but a bit smaller) built from traditional woods and construction techniques, with a sprinkling of modern materials and parts. Location: Port Dickson, Malaysia Wooden boat construction photo Have a look at this link. When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals. Our driftboat designs are the most-advanced available, yet specially intended for first-timers. We detail hull assembly over three temporary forms (much like frames) made from any type of plywood of specified thickness, plus the wood-framed plywood transom (stern) and stem (bow member) cut from a 2" x 6" - both of which stay in the boat.


Afterwards years of fishing from be adrift tubes Mike decided helium wanted to build a Ellen Price Wood drift He built his inaugural boat from plans borrowed from a friend and 9 weeks. Strangley her rigging to windward never seemed to be stressed,-- yet with engine just running would quite easily achieve 6kts.
They feature frame-free hulls (no ribs!) based on modern stress-skin engineering principles for faster, easier construction & reduced weight. Our hulls are designed for quick response to oar inputs, have exceptional stability, are dry running, and come in a wide variety of sizes to suit most any river fishing or whitewater river-running condition.
We call all these the "backbone" members, and include FULL SIZE PATTERNS for their contours so you can make them easily and without error (plans & instructions show you how). Hulls are built upside-down over the backbone members which are set up on a simple jig made from a few ordinary 2" x 4" members as fully detailed on the plans. Boat building is actually not the main reason that some of our tropical hardwood species driven to near extinction. Yet with our integral side trays, bow, and stern compartments with decks, strength and stiffness are superior! Plans show adjustable, removable seats for perfect load balance, side trays, knee locks, and the option of an outboard motor up to 10 HP. You can use either a good grade of Exterior or full Marine grade plywood panels in any case.
A few longitudinal members (straight wood "sticks" if you will) are added to back the joints and stiffen the hull - these can be bought in most any lumberyard to size. Quality of that wood seems excellent but the specie seems to be in danger of extinction; and for a tree that takes 75 years to attain 64 cm diameter, all cares have to be taken to preserve it.


She became British registered and we sailed her back to Malaysia in some pretty rough weather I seem to remember. All plans also include FULL-SIZE PATTERNS for hull-forming backbone members (*) - NO LOFTING OR LAYOUTS REQUIRED!
Fairing (hand-beveling for fit) is mostly unnecessary since bevels can largely be pre-sawn.
The Spira external internet site sells plans to anatomy boats from to concluded 30′ of totally varieties including canoes. And the resulting clean interiors of our boats mean less maintenance, fewer casting snags, and a neater, longer-lasting boat. In addition, we include easy-to-follow instructions especially for beginners, material listings, and fastening schedules - NOTHING IS LEFT TO CHANCE! Plywood panels are next laid onto this framework, marked around their perimeters, cut to shape, then glued and screwed back in place. Check out the next woodwind boat you see on the river chances are it bequeath personify a Don Benny Hill The plans are promiscuous to read it explains all the cuts how to work up the jigs how to build a wooden drift boat. Although construction time will vary depending on a builder’s tools, experience, and conditions, reports over the years indicate that 100 man-hours is a reasonable "ball-park" approximation of required building time for most.
