I have been looking at building a boat for a bit now, I am looking at the Vagabond 20' or 23' as a trailer sailor, large enough for a weekend sail with the kids and small enough to haul.
If so what did you find challenging about the build or what improvements would you suggest?
Location: Australia It might be a bit too sporty for your requirements but a current design for home building that is gaining momentum is the i550. Nice looking craft, I'll take it into consideration ,and review it today, I appreciate your replies, good budget to build as well I see. That said a 20-25 ft is a great size and trailerable, although I can set a mooring at his place and not have to worry about the trailering so much.

Best, Stan I agree rosorinc that is a beautiful boat, and thanks for the post, I have a issues of the woodenboat magazine and they have a nice weekender in the latest issue. Location: New Brunswick, Canada I really appreciate the input from everyone, it is reassuring that a boat build is in my future and to have the many folks here to pick their brains. I am relatively new to the entire nautical lifestyle, enjoyed a few boats in my youth, and enjoyed learning to sail and am so excited to get a build going!
I hate to be the devil's advocate here, but building a boat is a big commitment in terms of time, money and effort. We have been sailing as the crew on the Allyance,(brother-in-law's) a 27ft Hunter, for a few summers now, and both my wife and I love it. I have the full support of my wife on the build (as long as the other regular house maintenace doesn't go slack LOL). I really liked a lot of the reasons behind the CLC Pocketship as detailed in the Woodenboat article and on the CLC website.
I am now on my THIRD build and i know it sounds absolutely CRAZY that i started another small build in the middle of my big build, but what i learned this time around will save me MANY hours of time further down the line. The learning curve is endless and i can now absolutely prove it - that by building a small dinghy first, you do save time and money. When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals.
This gravy boat uses only 2 sheets of plywood The file includes a The 25 yr old file cabinet has been reborn to PDF only the old email address is wrong. PLEASE ALWAYS USE THE LATEST VERSION WHICH WILL CONTAIN ANY CORRECTIONS THAT HAVE BEEN BROUGHT TO THE DESIGNERS ATTENTION.
Download the Mk 2 Light Trow plans, and the model-making plans (making a model to be an important preparation for making this kind of boat). I think this is a nice small open paddler, but bouyancy tanks or bags would be a essential if you’re going to do more than paddle in narrow rivers or small shallow lakes.
Boatbuilding plans for the Black Skiff have been designed and made available for free by Mark Wallace – he says all he asks for is to be given the credit for designing the boat. Mark ways she’s a strong light-weight boat loosely with strong links to Scandinavian types. As my mind turns to building MY first boat during the winter months, I browsed and found many sites and such. Glad to be of help Charli – which boat are you planning to build for your first boatbuilding project? I made the model last night but i am unsure on how it scales up, i downloaded the zip file and i am unsure on how to use your co-ordinates, please help! Judging by the mail in my inbox, the boat-dreaming season is giving way to the boat-building season just a little before the buds open. And then I heard about Else, a motorised F&S skiff further enlarged to 12ft and fitted with a lawn-mower power pack. Yes, I was looking at the big boat, and thinking – why on earth has the owner spoilt that lovely, lovely stern with a gurt big outboard?
I do like the Field and Stream skiff, but if you want a boat that shape why not build Conrad Natzio's Sandpiper, which is adapted for modern materials and designed for ease of construction? Which reminds me, my Sandpiper needs a bit of work done and the weather is far too nice for sitting inside.
I'm pretty sure the outboard is a temporary arrangement that normally gets hidden in a locker.
The only things one could dislike about it are his rather bluntly stated comments about my version – but they may have been toned down since I last looked. The boat behind the little skiff is obviously a swedish skerry cruiser which exists in many sizes. They have very long and narrow hulls, for example the 30er is normally 12m in length and just 2m in breadth.
According to the picture i would say its a 30 sqm skerry cruiser because its four times longer than the little skiff. 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.

Follow me on TwitterLooking for something?This is a busy weblog, and what you're looking for is probably still here - just a little way down the list now. Our Faversham-based friend Alan Thorne can help with boatbuilding projects - constructing to plans in very tidy stitch-and-glue or more traditional techniques.
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. Tiernan adds that the reason most boats for sale today are made of fiberglass is that they can be made by semiskilled and unskilled workers who are cheaper to hire than the skilled craftspeople needed to build a wooden boat. Another is that when we build in wood or commission others to do so, we are helping to maintain an important tradition.
I wonder also whether the argument that building from wood is environmentally friendly has really been made. PS Fans of the US designer John Atkin will be interested to know that Tiernan is currently weblogging the build of a clinker-built Atkin Ninigret.
PPS I’d draw your attention to some of the comments below, particularly those of West Country boat designer, occasional building and general sailing man John Hesp.
Gavin, most of Tiernan's list deals with the engineering advantages of wood, as if we bought boats based on these facts. Trees have been growing, falling over, rotting, releasing CO2 into the atmosphere for years and it hasn't caused a massive increase in atmospheric CO2. I do see what you mean – it seems unreasonable to reduce these issues to numbers and engineering criteria when one of the key reasons we go boating is often to get away from such prosaic considerations.
Nevertheless, these issues are worth considering as I'm sure your inner designer will concede, and the environmental questions are much more subtle than most of us thought at the beginning. And of course, carbon emissions are tightly connected to economic activity and human activity in general.
On the other side of the issue, some fraction of whatever carbon there is in a plastic boat will remain locked in the material for a very long time. You don't think you've been led down the garden path by what sounds a rather journalistic BBC article? Ironing and washing, to be fair – both need more heat where cotton shirts are concerned. One interesting little tidbit I read recently is that the meat industry in one way or another, contributes significantly more to global warming than transportation, worldwide. One other nice thing about wooden boats, which has already been touched on a bit, but a nice one is gives pleasure to people, even when they aren't normally interested in boats. If the global warming cost of fossil fuels is added to that fuel we find ourselves playing a very different game. Did you know that one barrel of oil contains the same amount of energy as 12 men working for one year?
Image coming back to shore after a day on the water on a foggy day in an aluminum boat and the oars are clunking against metal. Timbre corpse the most park material for the construction of boats under xv metres in length. They’ve been chosen because they are derived from traditional boats, or in some cases simply for their usefulness.
Note the near complete lack of wake, which should indicate that the boat’s working efficiently.
The plans are not likely to be the easiest for first-time boatbuilders to follow, but it would be well worth picking the required skills up by reading one of the classic books on this kind of boatbuilding. She proven to be an excellent rower, has a capacity of four adults and has a flat bottom for easy beaching. If not, if you know someone with some background in maths should be able to sort it out for you using pencil and paper.
It could be built using the old-fashioned method using internal chine logs, or by stitch and glue. He knew I was interested in understanding sharpies and skiffs at the time, and thought this one would catch my attention. Not only was it a sweet boat, but I could see it making a nice early project for someone just learning to work CAD software. A sharp-bowed skiff under 8ft in length was too small for most purposes in the late 20th Century.
The latest is still the Swedish example built by Martin Beckmann shown at the top of this post.
Built by a couple of young lads in Germany, I think she could provides inspiration for a small fleet of cute little low-power home-built skiffs. Try scrolling down, clicking on the 'older posts' button at the bottom of this page - or try the search gadget! 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. Boatbuilders teach each other, and the skills have long been conveyed by oral transmission.
But if we only build boats out of oil, and keep a constant number of trees, there will be a nett increase in CO2. I became aware of this when a BBC magazine looked at the issue and decided that the heat consumed in ironing a cotton shirt meant that poly-cotton shirts were a better environmental deal; so it seems to me that we should consider all the inputs and outputs, not just the obvious ones.
Gaseous hydrocarbons are often very powerful greenhouse gases, and if a boat needs eight coats of varnish every two years, what's the impact of that? I wish someone would give me some nice, clear well worked answers that left me knowing where I was on all this, and that I could quote when the issue arises.
I can guarantee that the energy expended per year ironing my cotton shirts is less than it takes to make a years worth of polyester shirts….


And it seems to me that I've never even owned an iron that got hot enough to iron a cotton shirt properly! We should use wood because we want to, and save our agonizing about our carbon footprints for the times when it really counts. I am not about to give up my roast lamb, but cutting my meat intake in half would do me good, and probably make a more significant dent in my carbon footprint than all the other little fiddles one reads about put together. The difference in the reaction of people when I am paddling some rental day-glo plastic fantastic canoe, and when they see me in my little varnished oak and pine S-O-F canoe is remarkable. I seem to remember writing about the issue years ago, and finding that the energy savings from triple glazing can take a century to pay back the investment. What's needed is some sort of mechanism where the cost of dealing with CO2 problems are paid for by the sources of CO2, then triple glazing and the like would look a lot more attractive finacially. If person A manufactures a triple glazed panel using oil based energy sources the cost of energy is very low but the CO2 generated is very high. The cost of the triple glazed panel goes up slightly because of the embodied energy, but the cost of the energy being saved over, say, 20 years is a very worthwhile saving.
Theres a tigermoth biplane at our local airport that is probably 60-70 years old with wooden wing spars that DO flex. Building a current design with a growing fleet might be a cheaper option as the resale value will be better. The coordinates are pairs of numbers, as you'll have noticed, and each pair defines a particular single point on the ply.
There are a lot of points to plot, and when they have been plotted, you have to join the dots to make a complete drawing, as it were.
We humans are bigger and heavier than we were a hundred years ago, and I felt a larger boat was needed.
Click on Forest & Stream skiff builder’s story to read his account of how the project went. 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. With our busy working and family lives I have no hesitation in saying that we own and use at least one boat that we wouldn’t be able to keep up it on a DIY basis if it was made from wood. For example, when wood eventually rots its breakdown must release carbon dioxide and the much worse global warming gas methane. If the returns are so small, I'd suggest there are likely to be other areas we could cut down on that would make more of a difference.
If person B manufactures the same panel using energy from photovoltaics the cost of energy is very high, but the CO2 released is very low. Andrews NB or Grand Manan, but for the most part as mentioned before mostly river sailing. I live on a river that empties into the Matagorda bay, here in Texas, and the wind blows regular like crazy. In converting the F&S skiff plans to using CAD software, I also scaled it up a little to around 10ft and made it available over the Internet.
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.
So what is the lifetime cost of a wooden boat to the environment compared with a plastic one?
With regard to the maintenance I was referring to epoxy encapsulated wood like the Ninigret I'm building.
The recession might have lowered energy costs, but I can see us coming out of it with soaring energy costs. 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. Maybe plastic boat owners are more inclined to motor than sail, and maybe plastic boat owners are more attracted to resource hogging marinas?
Sure, we need a reasonably big car to haul the family around, but could we get away with an overgrown go-cart for the commute to work? For OffCenterHarbor we are not restricting the resulting PDF so members can download and print atomic number 85 leave but and Anne Bray's sauceboat Plans at occult Seaport 1 never Simple woods sauceboat. The critical might care to consider how well I did, given that it was my first serious attempt at using the software!
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.
Just to add a factor that seems relevant, what is the contribution to global warming made by the drying of spirit-based paints and varnish?
