After spotting "Skylark" in WoodenBoat #149, he went up to Oregon to sail that boat and subsequently placed an order for one of similar model. This new boat is a foot longer than "Skylark" with a little less deadrise and a flatter run to make the downwind legs as exciting as possible. The gunter sloop rig provides one of the best compromises between performance and practicality for an unballasted dinghy.
This rig puts more weight aloft than a one-piece mast, but the sails set every bit as well if they are set up right.
Hull color is Alerion green, which the owner spotted on the "Curlew" replica Warren Barker wrote about in WoodenBoat #138. Right side up, floors and centerboard case in place.With planking complete, the hull is lifted off the building jig. Several months ago I took time off from work to watch my son when my wife went back to work.
I began looking over some boat plans that I have and decided to try to build a small version of the Atkin flat bottomed skiff Sprite.
From here I still have the last of the framing, seat risers, stern quarter knees, and the thwarts. For anyone interested, I will build a full size Atkin Sprite cedar on oak, painted, with oars for $5,500. Inspired by the old Maine salmon wherries her old world handling abilities are immediately apparent and appreciated.Our Penobscot Wherry has a rounded hull that is both double ended on the waterline(makes rowing a breeze) and has a narrow but flat bottom for easy launching and landing on the beach. She is quite possibly the best fishing boat there is and also the perfect boat for rowing your cherished ones around the pond.
Norwegian boatbuilding (Sail and Oar build Norwegian small boats from traditional materials.
Scandinavia has an ancient tradition of boatbuilding; it was probably here that clinker construction was invented. Clinker built boats are naturally light, strong and flexible; in early times the strakes were stiched together and this technique was still in use in the far North of Norway in the late 19th century because people there could not afford nails for riveting.
The Norwegian boatbuilding tradition is one of the great vernacular traditions of the world.


Some of you probably saw my little brass bevel gauge, after finishing this, I was searching the web and stumbled over a sweet little DIY bevel gauge made from a old hack saw blade, so I had to make me one just for the fun of it.
I'm a Danish architect form 1968, who have retired because of a spinal neck operation with a bad result. By subscribing to the RSS feed you will be notified when new entries are posted on this blog.

I finished the framing, installed the thwarts and stern sheets and installed the transom knees.
Do you have idea how much it would cost to build one (teak and with boat covers) with a sliding seat and oars and crate and ship it Cape Town? By 800 AD the form was fully developed and it then changed little for over a thousand years. These designs influenced boatbuilding in Britain and elsewhere and boats such as Yoles and Sexerns are direct descendants. Faerings were working boats used for travel up and down the fiord and for fishing, especially herring fishing, up to ten miles offshore. It evolved from the materials and tools available and suited the environment is which it developed beautifully. This is now giving me the chance to spend some time on my old passion 'woodworking', and allows me to work with all the lovely tools from different cultures of this world. I like the idea of pounding the other end of the nail to get a second head – I would have never thought if that.
And thanks for showing how you turned the nail into a rivet, that all of a sudden makes a couple of projects more obviously doable.
In fact very many English nautical terms are directly descended from Norse: Mast, Keel, Strake, Oar, Sprit, Sail, Deck, Rudder, Nail are all examples. The 7th century Gokstad Faering is essentially the same as the faerings which were still being built in Norway 100 years ago.


Rowing long distances was hard work and when engines began to appear in the early 20th century they quickly became popular and the craft was almost lost. It is equivalent in this way to the coracle, the Eskimo sealskin kayak, the North American Indian birch bark canoe, Irish curraghs, the dugout boats found in Africa and Asia and S America and the Proas and other fast sailing craft of the pacific.
I bend in the dust for your sharp eyes and mind.lilredweldingrod, the truth is I’m just a big child! The transom blank is made big enough to reach the baseline (which is the top of the building jig).
It was largely through the interest of Bernhard Faeroyvik, a schoolteacher, that the old designs were preserved.
Working at the scale on the plans is just like working from a full size lofting when building the full size boat. I may give the boat a paint job to see how it turns out and possibly build a little cradle so it can be displayed a little better.
Either way fiberglass or glued lap wood epoxy with teak trim,custom cover,row wing sliding seat and carbon fiber macon oars would be 12,950. He spent most of his life from the early 1920’s on, travelling round Norway measuring and creating drawings of the different local varieties of faering and other traditional boats.
I laid out the rabbet on both sides of the stem and picked up the bevels from the half breadth plan.
Measuring the widths on the batten allow me to transfer to the planking stock and get out the planks. I laid out the station locations on the jig and set up the molds making sure they were square to the centerline and baseline.
Locations can be found on the plans and it's easy to square up to locate the stem position and rake.
