Launch

Tuesday, October 6th, 2009

From the Faux Stem until the launch there was a lot of work but not much posting. The boat is currently set up as a rowing skiff. I plan to make the mast and boom this winter and with luck I will also be able to make the rudder and centerboard. The bottom is 9mm and the side are 6mm Okoume plywood. The stern is 18mm plywood with Port Orford cedar bonded to it. I used Douglas Fir for the chine log, frames, stems and oars. The floor boards and thwarts are Port Orford Cedar. The inner and outer garboard rails are White Oak.
