Hi Guys,Cutting a long story short I have had the good fortune to come upon a boat, a 14' clinker built sailing dinghy, most likely one of the Thames Estuary types from the 30s and 40s.A restoration had been started by a gentleman who sadly passed away.

You will find Plans 4 Boats a very large package that contains everything that you need to strat building today. You will be able to build boats from 254 Wooden Boat Plans using basicly any material for the job. I understand the wood itself was found to be sound and have no reason to doubt this, however I hope to have a more experienced eye cast over it before launching. The deck is plywood, I believe made new by the gentleman who owned her as the wood is bare and the filler in the screw holes has not yet been sanded. But things tend to get easier these days and so I came across this great selection of boat building plans for wooden boats that includes 254 Wooden Boat Plans and all the needed boat building knowledge to make a real floating vessel from them. So, HOPEFULLY, my work will consist of stripping the old varnish, caulking, varnishing and re-fitting all the metalwork.I don't mind how much work I need to do, be it labour or research, because it might well result in me having a 'free' boat. The current owner (the son of the afoermentioned gentleman) believes it had a mainsail only with no foresail, and is giving me the sails he has. I'm expecting them to be in poor condition, but will make the best of them.He also mentioned his Dad had been using a heat gun (electric) to start on the varnish, and having used one myself when renovating our house, and reading the articles on your site, I'm inclined to start there, I found them more user friendly than chemical strippers.


I spent the winter sanding it down, lightly, and applied a few coats of varnish.Then I lightly sanded the hull which showed signs of resin and fiberglass mesh.
It's not a Wivenhoe One Design (only 10 planks rather than 12), nor is it a Brightlingsea (too short). I'm not sure of which plans it was made from, but it looks close to the 1950's Mustang DIYplans. Finally, my plan was to get it on to my drive and spend the summer stripping it under a tarp, before moving to the garage to paint.
