Wooden Boat Building Forum If You Want To Know How to Build a DIY Boat Quickly & Easily Please Pay Attention. Beyond that I would like to know if anyone has seen or built a wood boat similar to the one in the picture that i have uploaded? I dont know if this is what you are looking for but here is a free plan for a Runabout riviera. Has any one seen or built davits out of WOOD for their yacht tender to hang off of and actually mounted them on their boat? I want the davits tall enough so that I can see under the boat when seated in the cockpit, and be able to see over the boat when standing in the cockpit. I would not use davits on your boat while underway, any weight on the back would seriously slow the boat down, they'd be OK for hoisting the dinghy while at anchor for security reasons.
Thad, Is there a chance that I could get a look at your drawings, I had just planned to wing it. The problem with making dinghy davits out of wood is that by the time that you get them beefy enough to be worth a damn they weigh a ton and are 6" thick.
I have doubts about towing the mothership with the dinghy hanging from davits, too, if that is what you were proposing.
I don't think it's illegal, I just think it sounds like a lot of work for not much gain, taking into consideration the questions of scale that Gareth raised. That just goes to show you that I probably aught to think things through or post ideas here before executing them.

Ive been drawing a few sketches on graph paper the last few days and ive came up with a 12ft row boat but im stuck on a few things and dont really want to commit trying to build one untill ive all the proper info incase i make a balls of it.
Im wanting to know can i make the cedar strips thicker than whats used on canoes just to give it that wee bit more strength. Im only at the desgiun stage but im finding it abit difficult as i think i should be using 3d diagrams instead of 2d which im currently doing. Any help would be great because ive got the itch to build something else after succesfully building a plywood canoe last year.
I am thinking the transon will have to be soild plywood to hold it all together thus allowing the use of an outboard engine either petrol or electric. A number of years ago I built a Gillpatrick laker but wanted to make some minor mods to the shape. Sorry if this sound negative, I don't want to dash your hopes but it would be a shame if you put a lot of effort in and were unhappy with the end result.
There used to be another free hull design tool called Carene which is less powerful but easier to learn. Thanks for your replies ,ill take in everything that use you say however im determined to design a boat and build it out of cedar. Here below is what im going to do now, ive seen something different online and took a few tips of it and designed this. I personally would buy a set of plans for a boat similar to what you want to achieve, not to use to build your boat but to study the shapes and spacings of the forms, see what they have done.
If you modify what is already a proven design you have the peace of mind that you have based it on something that works and tailored it to your needs. If you do go with your own design then I would go down the scale model route, you dont need to build the whole boat just the forms and a few strips to see if the lines look right. Thanks for your replies ,ill take in everything that use you say however I'm determined to design a boat and build it out of cedar. Yes but our ancestors were building boats on the back of generations of past experience, often going back hundreds even thousands of years. Before I spend any more time on this, could you have a look and make sure I havent made any errors please. Looking at your drawings, they dont look out of place, infact they look like some stations that i see people on teh net working of to make their canoes.
Just had another look at no1 on your drawing, would you think that theres to much of a peak on it. Tumble-home is the term that describes the way that the top edges (gunwales or gunnels) of many canoes curve in towards the centerline.
Tumble-home is not used in a rowboat where adequate beam at the gunnel increases leverage for the rower by spacing the oarlocks well apart.
The excessive beam together with the tumble-home suggests a craft intended for a specialized purpose, possibly delivering extremely heavy goods such as guns to a ship that involves maneuvering through very narrow and congested waters at slow speeds. In general small changes to an existing, successful design can be made without too much risk. As stations 4,5,6 are all exactly the same height, there is a corner on the top of station 4.
However, if you fix the problems at this stage, you will be much happier when you finish building.
The problems you have here arnt insurmountable, but you really do need to deal with them before you start building. Have a look at your measurements and modify your sketches with that prog, then come back and I will do my utmost to help you further. It Happened today!!  Wasn't expecting to be ready for this event for another couple three weeks, but all of the sudden things started coming together and Santa Delivered this boat to me, after nine months of fun-fun building and much learning.
The Moment of Truth after so much head scratching, hoping, and fun building.  This photo angle shows the strakes I added below the chine logs - to help prevent skidding. 14'  aluminum "whitewater mfg" driftboat for several years -- worked great.  All wooden oars probably wouldn't present that problem - the oars I had then were all Plastic.


This is just wonderful Don.  Thank yo so much for sharing!  Tell us, how did you decide on the color scheme?
How you coming with your build?  Sounds and looks like you have a great start -- what a fun pastime hey?? You have the right idea about the blog, just post the link, then you can send it to other people in your network who may not be on this site. Thanks Lawrence -- Although I did give the engineering aspect of level flotation a lot of thought- the end result of being near perfect was just  s--- house luck - except for my limited ability to balance things with the location of the front steering seat box - which was built around the 17? Yeah running the 42 mph didn't feel all that good during the second or two when it happened - maybe a seat belt??
I very much enjoyed looking at the pics you have posted running the upper rogue in your beautiful boat.  Where you have been, I would like to go.
I'm thinking that if my jetski engine can manage 42mph in just a short run it should have the get up and go to squirt up through Blossom Bar and the several other white water stretches??  Being careful of course not to get in the way of the downhill craft.
Hi Rick - would it be appropriate for me just to create a build story right on this same location? Bet when it gets warmer I will manage to talk my Mom into taking a ride, she has been a great encouragement for me and always interested in what I was doing out there in the garage. I'm soon finishing my current project and while looking for the next boat to build I came across pathfinder - a design that I find very appealing. So, is there any comparable design that you think could be built using solid wood and the strip-building technique?
Thank you for pointing in the right direction, both Myst and the Eel are very beautiful boats! You may want to have a look at Siri, Doug Hylan's interpretation of Iris from the canoe yawl craze of the 1890's. I'm currently building a Bolger canoe yawl that was designed to be strip planked although I've modified the construction somewhat. Thank you for all suggestions - this actually starts to feel problematic as all designs are very beautiful - on the other hand - beauty is the hallmark of canoe yawls. I also have a question - maybe I get an opportunity to harvest some lumber during ester - do anyone have any suggestions for the final dimensions of the strips when building something like the eel? Here (more photos) I used OTTER as the subject of an example advertisement to sell a classic boat (I am no longer in that business).
If a kick-up rudder is desired, I wonder if a joint in the shaft just above the blade would not do the trick without changing the balance. I would try it as designed first rather than worring a problem which in my opinion does not exist. She will be a challenge to build - but on the other hand, if I'm going to invest so much time into a boat it's better be an outstanding design - I think she is. This is a true classic, but it will be very demanding to build, as it demands a lot of care about shape and details. My farther is a master wood worker and he and I had some difficulty building a 38" 1938 Chris Craft Triple Cockpit Runabout all from mahogany.

I love the idea of carrying my shore boat on the main vessel, when going through locks, in tight docking maneuvers or in a very heavy sea.

I have gill gillpatricks book with free plans but im wanting to make a few changes if possible to make a cedar strip rowing boat and im wondering is it possible to use these plans as a sort of a guide or just draw up something myself. Im thinking of using teh method gill gillpatrick uses when building his canoes with having some cut outs of ply wood and bend the strips of cedar around these and join with wood glue. My boat is 12ft long and 500mm high and will have a curve at the front and back of the boat but i dont know how much of a curve to put on it. A sharp twist over a short length is hard to handle as you only have the leverage of the width to hold down the edge with a staple, and a strip which twists and bends is worse. You can start at the sheer line, or the keel, or work from the bilge towards sheer and keel. It is intuitive and ideal for designing a rowing hull; if you can find a source on the web I recommend it. I cant see it being that difficult, sure didnt our ancestors build them without the tools and plans we have of today. Does anyone know if it will be acheivable building it with teh same thickness as gill gillpatrick uses with his canoes.
I cant see it being that difficult, sure didn't our ancestors build them without the tools and plans we have of today. You have taken a conventional open canoe design and made it wider to create your rowboat design.
It makes it easier to paddle a wide canoe solo, allowing the blade to be closer to the center thus producing less of a tendency to turn, and is very rarely used in specialized fishing canoes. In fact, in rowboats designed for speed which have narrow hulls the spacing of the oarlock is increased by the use of outriggers, where permitted by racing rules. The narrow sharp forefoot will grip the water, the flat stern will not, and when the boat starts any turn it will tend to slew around, making control of direction difficult or even impossible.
This is only a guess and I am quite sure it is not your intention; I merely mention it to indicate that this is an unlikely looking design.
In this case you appear to have increased the beam by more than double, chopped off what was presumably a canoe stern, modified the rocker without understanding its function in a boat and changed the purpose of the original craft beyond recognition.
First I though that the Eel would be to advanced and large, but after chewing on it for a while - I see no reason why I shouldn't try.


I have a copy of the plans for the Eel which is high on my list of next boats to build - I'll look at it tonight.

When i draw my boat on paper, i have a straight line where my gun whales go , is this ok to do or will i have to have the same curve as i have on the bottom.
Check how it will look from various angles, and also draw in the planks to get a feel for how they will bend.
Boat design is a bit of a black art, the 3 M?s (math, magic, materials) plus intuition and - for me - maturing experiences that I don?t always want to talk about . I know my boat isnt going to win any awards for being efficent in all the ways good boats are.all im looking is something that ill be able to stick on my trailer and for it to float and look good. We're all on your side all the way, and none of us want to 'pee on your bonfire' but modern materials ie decent ply, epoxy, adhesives etc are expensive, so a mistake can be a very costly one. Also when you say about them not being teh same shape and as acurate as mine, thats ok, just as log as i get to have some sort of numbers to work to and that the boat will be ok for the water.
It is not used when it is not needed, so it is not found in a large canoe intended only for multiple paddlers who can sit or kneel against the side, or a small solo canoe used with a double bladed paddle. Rowboats intended for racing where rules do not permit outriggers have narrow hulls up to the waterline which then flare out at the gunnels to achieve the same thing. The upward slope at the stern keeps the bottom edge of the transom out of the water, which is good, but if you take horizontal slices out of the hull, which are called waterlines, you will find that these turn abruptly towards the centerline at the stern. If you wish to learn and progress in the art of boat design, it is better to study books on the subject, or design and build small boats to learn in less time and cost, attend a college program on the subject or work with a professional. And it is noted as a construction method in the '30 Wooden Boats' book at the WB store (where I scanned the drawings above). I bought OTTER from him in Tee Harbor (north or Juneau) and made the 45 day passage back to near Anacortes. But I am not someone who can make frames off the top of my head, yet they want 250$ for the plans which should include the .DXR files for a CNC or Laser cutting machine to chop out some frames as this is the most important part from what I understand.

The forms were thick card and the individual planks edge glued and temporarily fixed with pins just like the real thing. I've built a small rowing boat and a canoe from their plans and they've both been cracking little craft. Don?t try to draw them to scale, the lines will be too close, a scale plank width of 3 or 4 inches is fine and will alert you to problem areas.
You need to take time to understand the reasoning behind the canoe design and the ways in which a rowboat design is different, not just in the beam and the presence of a transom. If, on the other hand, you simply want an adequate boat that will go together without much fuss and work well in the water and go home on a trailer, there are lots of plans for boats on the web, free and otherwise, that will do just that. Having to do with shape of boat amongst other things I believe that I would want a good back bone to attempt this type of build in ? scale.
I can't imagine not being able to design them so that they'd be strong enough without being clunky at all.

When you think you have it right, take the lines off the half-model and build a larger model to see how the full-size boat will go together.
An upturn in a relatively flat bottom is seen in some rowing and sailing skiffs, but those craft are much more difficult to design than their simple lines imply. One caveat; some free plans are ripped off from magazines of days gone by, they may be for adequate but old-fashioned and heavy boats which do not take advantage of the capabilities of modern materials and may need skills to build and maintain that you may not possess.
It was not designed with strip in mind though, so it is probably not as easy as another designed with strip constr. I wonder if they would sell me a ? scale .DXR file with minimal build instructions for less? The mods made were relatively tiny adjustments to the width of the bow and stern and I thought I'd made sufficient adjustments to the adjacent forms to gradually blend in the modified forms. How much trouble you will have depends on how many shape and construction changes you make to an established design, and luck.
Equally at the bow the sharp upward turn of the bottom serves no apparent purpose, and again it will increase drag.
