This year’s Art in Action show at Waterperry, near Wheatley in Oxfordshire, takes place from the 15th to 18th July. If you’re in the area, it might well be worth dropping by, for this year the woodworking section of this exhibition of art and craftsmanship includes exhibits from the Boat Building Academy folks at Lyme. Have you got news for us?If what you're doing is like the things you read about here - please write and tell us what you're up to. Classic Sailor is a new magazine about traditional and classic boats from ex-Classic Boat editor Dan Houston and colleagues that promises rather more coverage of the traditional craft around our coast.

Some nice pictures of the Auk taken last Autumn at Lyme Regis on this thread if it's of any use. I have not decided on the paint job on my boat yet but I figuer I still have plenty of time before I have to worry about that. Hi Guys any one had any experence with using Norglass filler to do fillets on the lapstrakes.
The white stuff is Norglass which I find much easier to use but I have discoverd that bote cote will disolve it.


The floor beams are oregon which I am not all that happy about, but at the moment it is a matter of using what I already have. I went over to the timber mob at Windsor to pick up some more goo and they showed me some 150 x 10mm red silkwood that they suggested might be ok for floor boards.
Started to try and fit the centre case and found that I fitted the keel some 10mm of centre. It is still a bit cold up here so I will have to pull out the acme gloo heater (see pic) and fit the centre case, which belive it or not, I dry fitted last night with out to many build adjustments. I have made a few variations to Iain O's plans of the centre case as I was worried about getting a good seal through the keelson. Celebrate with the Boat Building Academy’s Class of March 2014 as they launch boats built as part of their intensive 38 week training for the first time into Lyme Regis Harbour.
I wonder if they’ve noticed how many more mature as well as young students find themselves at home at the Academy each year?

I was impressed at how well she looked on the water with 2 adults in her, as this is a bit of a worry for me (tall small for me plus the admiral). I have been testing Decks Ole on the big boat for a couple of years, but I am not all that impressed with the wear, it appears that the Tassy pines will not suck enough oil into them. I am having a hard time doing fillets using botecote as I just can't get the consistency right and using the sawdust trick is a disaster.


I have sealed the laps with bote cote then filleted in the norglas and I will paint over it.
The plans call for a 6mm strip to be laminated over the floor beams so I figure by the time I glue a strip of poly saturated Maple (which I have heaps off already 6mm) the whole thing should hold together. Five boats built in just six months will be walked in procession from the Academy’s workshops on Monmouth Beach to Lyme Regis harbour at 1200 on Wednesday 3rd December. I was told the hhelm was a very experienced sailor so I guess he was just enjoying how much abuse this little boat could take. I found half a tin of Norglass filler that I used to fix a gap around a chain plate on the big boat, after some mongrel ran in to it on the mooring, and it is still water tight after 4 years. The finish I get on the norglass fillets after just a couple of rubs of sandpaper are perfect, and I plan to just paint the inside of the boat so uv should not be a problem. I have just emailed the Norglass mob and asked all the usall dumb questions , like fillet stength and compatability with bote cote, but there is no beter advice than someone who has actually used it, so over to you wizards.
