Location: Samogitia Build of small mahogany sailboat with water jet propulsion I began to build a mahogany boat with water jet drive and and own design wingsail. Using AutoCAD I tried to design a boat hull somewhat similar dinghy, yachts and powerboats hulls.
My disposal I have a woodworking shop, CNC machining center, stainless steel welding equipment, AutoCAD using experience, joiners tools and experience. Well, I still think I can build this boat and am looking forward to constructive criticism from you. Location: Samogitia Few pictures of boat building process CNC machined and assembled form for machogany boat build.
Location: France Man, it's already looking very good - specially when you say you have no experience with boat building. Location: Eustis, FL You don't really think that's anything close, to a reasonable set of sailing lines do you?
If honestly I think that for better sailing lines need more boat wide, smaller transom and may be deeper keel.
Location: Samogitia More of boat building process Showed that the first layer will not be easy to put correctly on the curved boat hull form. Trying to resolve the situation with the springy rubber hose pieces pierced with wire hooks.
The second layer of mahogany cross diagonal bands is finished and sanded for outer 2,5 mm layer gluing. When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals.


In my previous articles I went over the pros and cons of fiberglass, steel, or aluminum as hull choices for your cruising sailboat. Cold molded boats, for the purpose of this series, should be looked at in the same light as fiberglass boats since they share most of the same pros and cons.
In the next article I’ll discuss the various styles of rigging for boats and their pros and cons on a modern cruising boat. I am cruising a wooden boat across the Pacific right now and while I would love to argue the qualities of a finely crafted wooden vessel, you are completely correct.
DeCaptain - Lance GettlerIn 2001, thirty-one-year-old Lance Gettler sold everything he owned, bought a sailboat sight unseen over the internet, and went sailing around the world. The most importantly - the boat will have to be small and beautiful, will have low weight that I can carry it on my car's roof.
I've watched many boats images as shown on the internet and I have not bad joiner experience. The wood core is encapsulated in resin and fiberglass or exotic laminates protecting it from the elements.
There are many sub categories in traditional wood boat building but they all share the common trait of wood as their main building component and all require more work and upkeep than a fiberglass, steel, or aluminum boat. Because they were so prevalent for so long, there are lots of wooden boats around, many of them cheap and in varying states of decay.
They are for people who have a passion for more than just sailing, a passion for the boat itself. You can also subscribe without commenting.Yes, please add me to your mailing list for your weekly digest!


Many modern boats are built using the “cold molded” method which uses wood as the core of the boat which is then encapsulated with resin and fiberglass.
Unless you really like working on wood boats, have deep pockets and masochistic tendencies my only advice is to stay away from wood boats. One of the main concerns with a cold molded boat is ensuring that the core remains encapsulated and you need to take extra steps anytime you drill into the core or add any hardware. Waste your time sailing and drinking with friends not in a boat yard replacing rotten planking.
I Rubbed the hull with epoxy resin, with six hand-help put fiberglass and dip the cloth by epoxy. But know that I am often stuck with a varnish brush in my hand while others are off having fun.
And now it's too late to correct boat hull problems because, sadly but the hull is finished. Very nervous job.Will need to apply extra two layers of fiberglass without for preparing to warnish.
