Hi forumites,

a couple of months ago I have started a slow build of Gartside # 207. The boat is not build by myself, but by a small boatyard in Greece. Here are a some fotos of the process so far:

Wood for keel and the laminated frames is Iroko

transformed here into pre bend strips

and glued up

Here is a nice method to lift the frames lines to plywood pattern by use of a batten and a router: Haven't seen this so far!

And here is some work regarding the keel: Rough cutting out the keel elements from the Iroko board with a chain saw

and building the keel: From shaping elements

A view of the erected stem

which makes quite a monument: I love the line of this plumb bow!

Here is a view from the stern to show the assembly so far

http://i554.photobucket.com/albums/jj436/zauberberg_2009/DSCF9670_zps6jtwnifk.jpg (http://s554.photobucket.com/user/zauberberg_2009/media/DSCF9670_zps6jtwnifk.jpg.html)

The length of the assembly obviously is very much exaggerated by the lens in this shot! In reality the whole thing seems rather compact to me.

Here is a detail of the deadwood under construction

Nice to see someone giving at least some hope to a few Greeks, i expect the rates are somewhat cheaper than Blohm & Voss. May i ask where you sourced the iroko Thomas?

zauberberg
02-12-2017, 03:49 PM
The boatyard sourced the Iroko together with the WRC planend for the planking from a wood merchant / dealer in Greece.

By the way, after having seen Don's boat I had to make this contribution to the build: A skylight, made by myself this time, mostly with hand tools:

I made it from Iroko to match the boat's expected trim and finished it with oil only - what is part of the low maintenance strategy I plan to adopt for the rest of the boat's trim also. I selected an oil with UV protection formula for outdoor use after having tested it on a couple of samples for one year in the greek sun and rain, and they seemed doing fine.

Yes, a dovetail, but combined with a tonge and groove joint as shown in this sketch from woodenboat #92:

Hopefully this complication adds to the tightness of the design ...

Gartside is one of my favorit designers.

Yes, Gartside has a hand for beautiful lines. I remember having seen a Gartside design #109, now sailing as "Freya von den sieben Inseln", during her build in the boatyard, and her lines were breathtaking.

Here a comparision of #207 with some other, IMHO also very beautiful designs out of my selection process:

I love that plumb bow Thomas, ‘really looking forward to following this build. And your butterfly hatch looks superb!! Which oil did you use?

zauberberg
02-16-2017, 06:26 AM
I used the SAICOS "Special Wood Oil", made for use on external wood surfaces as garden decks, garden furniture asf. I talked to the technical sales department there and they claimed to have good experiences in boat applications. While the instruction sheet specifies 2 coats of oil I remembered marine best practice and applied 5. Application can be done with a rag, very simple.

http://i554.photobucket.com/albums/jj436/zauberberg_2009/Saicos_zps59znsydt.jpg (http://s554.photobucket.com/user/zauberberg_2009/media/Saicos_zps59znsydt.jpg.html)

As mentioned before I have made a clotheline with about a dozen small wood samples with various numbers of coats and also w/out pre coating with a thin pre-coating oil and hang them out into the sun and rain. The results after one year out were positiv: The samples which had received 2 coats look still goot, those with 1 coat only showed clear signs of starvation (greyness) but without any flaking whatsoever, and were quickly restored to original apperance by applying one coat with the oiled rag without any sanding. Promising I woudl say, let's see how the skylight will do.

Lovely, looking forward to seeing this come together. Im curious, are they planning on building her right side up? Construction is triple skin over those frames, which I imagine would be easier done upside down?

zauberberg
02-20-2017, 07:06 AM
Indeed, after some fore and back on the topic the boatyard decided to build her right side up. Main arguments were

1. to avoid rolling over of the rather wide boat and

2. to give some flexibility to the building process: Setting up the jigg and fastening the deck shelves right side up can now be followed by many other tasks before planking, e.g. installation of deckbeams, bulkheads, superstructure, engine beds and even sub structure of furniture, what is expected to be easier within an unplaked hull.

Of course, gluing up the hull from strips and espescially veneers will be more troublesome right side up.

Jonathan Burke
02-20-2017, 01:35 PM
Yep, all makes sense. I also allows for a bloody good workout when faring the planking between layers!

So, after having "solved" the photobucket problem the brutal way (and by this having lost all the links to the photos of this thread so far) I am now able to show you some actual photos of the build.

The future boat has found its final building place in the workshop. The keel has been fixed to the workshop floor, an upper beam and a triangle structure at the stem. Frames and deck beams have beed produced and are now being added to the keel, first as try fit and are later then fine adjusted and bolted to the floors. Here are some photos of this stadium:

The triangle structure at the stem:

I've got two different ones of those, they're very effective but you really need to be careful with them. I prefer to use a 450 or 500 watt 115mm angle grinder with 40 grit sandpaper on it, that also shifts wood very quickly but they dont kick as much and can be used for suprisingly fine work.

A transom was made from 3 layers of veneer, same construction as the hull.
As the old master said, that the sea wants everything to be curved, we had to build some centimeters of crown into it:

Thomas, are the builders using P.G. Method of strip planking then two layers of veneer for hull? Which timber are they using? I'd imagine most of the wood would have to be imported from elsewhere?

don't worry I found the answer in #9

Thanks Thomas the pictures are really appreciated. Have you seen the boat on P.G. Website. Interesting rig

zauberberg
11-08-2017, 03:12 AM
Yes, have seen the rig, very interesting. A bold step out of the traditional box also. I have no doubts, that the rig has some seriously positive aspects of performance and may be also of easy-to-use to it. That flat head sail together with the jumper struts are telling me a story of performance. Probably also a somewhat brusque blend of styles for the traditionalist, and I frankly have to admit that I will need some time to get used to that look.

It looks like the planking may be one of the last things done. Is that correct Thomas? I’d imagine they are going to complete a lot of the interior first as well? Certainly a lot to be said for building right side up, even if means sanding overhead of final planking.

Exactly. Plan is to finish the deck structure now, maybe even the deck house, then the already bought engine goes in and around Christmas we will mock up the outline of the interieur so we can finally decide on the (of course changed!) layout. Idea is to build from the inside out, as the access to the boat is so much easier when it is still not planked yet.

Regarding just the hull construction, I wonder what the time penalty is for strip then 3 x veneer layers right side up rather than downhand ? The builders must think there is sufficient advantage in having the interior available for fit out to make the hull inconvenience worthwhile .

andrewpatrol
11-18-2017, 10:10 PM
Theres only two veneers (as with a lot of Gartsides) and no hull turn-over, plus theres time saved passing bulkheads and furniture thru, ala Jim Ledger. Seriously something to think about. Thomas would have more info tho’ having direct contact with builder. I cant wait to see how the hull is skinned and sanded tho.

The other point of building upright, especially on a larger hull, is that work on both planking and interior can be ongoing at the same time, maybe not an issue if working single handed, but on a larger boat with several workers, building right-side-up can be of some benefit. For home builders, turning boats over of this size can take up a lot of time or expense. Overhead working is something that has to be done, counter-weighting tools can help. Long-boarding is an exhausting job anyway, though granted a little less painfull working below shoulder level. Pros and cons with each method.
Doing a grand job.

Peter, the decision to build upright was only felt and not calculated, but took some thinking fore and back. Turning a hull so beamy (nearly 4m) was believed to be a big hassle, that should be avoided - this was the main argument. Also, building a keel assembly seperatly and lower it down later then onto the building jig is an unused thing here, probably because all the traditional craft here, the kaikis and trechandiris, are build upright. These two points combined with the easy accessability of the hull until it would be planked made the decision. Interestingly, the question of a difficult sanding was no point at all - perhaps because the decision maker doesnīt sand himself?

They seem to be moving quite well Thomas. Tell me , will the hull be fibereglassed over the wood?

zauberberg
12-03-2017, 05:25 AM
Oh yes, Andrew, absolutely. Planking material is soft WRC, I think the enforcement here will greatly add to my low maintenance goal. Plan specifies a 200g/m^2 cloth that we will apply by help of peel ply, and I'm already thinking of some additional layer(s) on areas where bigger use can be expected, e.g. at the bow, where the anchor sooner or later will kiss the hull.

I experienced the virtues of a glassed the hull many times now with my Romilly: A contact of the glassed hull with the hard leaves a scratch, with the unglassed stem a crater.

The bulkheads are going in.

Here's a close up of the chain locker bulkead: Relatively broad staves of WRC, V-grooves in between and a endpiece of Iroko, as this bulkhead does not connect to the deck beam, but reaches up only half way to allow access to the chain locker:

Why did you choose WRC for the cable locker? I'd have thought you'd want something harder and not a soft wood like WRC. Great choice for weight savings up in the bow though.

Good question, WRC for the bulkhead probably because I have it - it's the hull material and lying around. The bulkhead will be glassed in the inside to protect if from the chain, the hull in the chain locker area will get a hard wood lining for the same reason.

Dave Lesser
12-07-2017, 10:51 AM
Our chain locker is WRC that has been glassed over.

https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4583/38178891164_5767c6628d_b.jpg

We have a 5/16" all chain rode. Even though the WRC is relatively soft, the fiberglass has prevented any dents from the chain.

A couple of years ago, I lined the chain locker with Dri-Dek tiles, not to prevent dents, but to lift the chain away from the wood to improve air circulation and drainage. If you do this, you shouldn't need the hardwood lining.

Hi Thomas, I see that the frame heads have been bought through the deck and inside bulwarks. Is that how P.G. Drew them for this boat ? The plans for 116/109 that I have just have a built-up bulwark on top of deck.
I have often wondered about strength of bulwarks without inside frames but on the other hand i wonder about sealing around frames through deck. No doubt you’ve had much discussion with your builder on this?

Raised sheer like that with scuppers can make a deck feel more safe, and can do wonders to hide a high house, i would rather bring the deck up to the top of the frame head and deck them in. It appears to be an area that always leaks, given enough time, so will be interested in the tecnique that will be used. Glass in the chain locker a good idea, though how much weight a bit of ceder saves over hardwood in a chainlocker is not worth debating. I moved chain stowage aft to the mast foot area on my last cruiser, and she was less wet after the move.

Scuppers, yes.

Regarding the deck design: I have thought on this and also had discussions on this with the builder, but we are convinced that the original design is a good one:
https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4583/38337166034_d8fff37625.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/21pHZPh)https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4595/38337440784_a0d4a3fd22_z.jpg
(https://flic.kr/p/21pKpum)You see, the frames will be cut away just over shelf, then comes the deck over all, a massive, 2*15mm cold molded veneer affair. Then there is a filler piece to the inside of the hull over the deck level, and a closing cap over both hull and filler. An epoxy fillet goes into the corner between filler and deck, and then comes the glas over the deck. Isn't this convincing?

The left long frame ends therefore have done their duty now: They were needed to build the inner layer of the hull over deck level and will be cut away now as soo as the planking of the deck starts.

https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4705/28004027069_1344eb9d0b_c.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/JEBXAV)

After fairing, the second deck layer layer is being prepared. Again 15mm WRC, this time arranged diagonally. This layer will be glued down on the first one with epoxy, held in place for curing with plastic staples.

And then there is the cabin sole: Hemlock on a carrier of plywood, that will be locked into the first layer of the hull as the deck shelves had been locked into:

The Hemlock sole will be oiled and is looking good (to my eyes). It is rather bright in color, why we have decided to use Hemlock for are all inside trim. This in combination with mostly white painted furniture, bulkheads and ceiling should make for a bright interieur.

Thomas,
I mention the limber holes because in my view they should be effective in a worst case scenario due catastrophic failure of hull integrity, failure of a through hull or other unforeseen event. I'd rather have the bilge pump pumping water directly from the bottom of the bilge without filling each segment between floors and pouring over the tops.

No doubt about this one, there will be sufficiently sized limber holes.

I see they're down the middle. I would put them on either side of the floor so that they can drain even when heeled over on one tack or the other. A router with a large square bit would make nice square holes if run on a guide flush with the top of the keel timber. You're below the lower bolt holding the frame to the floor so you're not losing any strength there. Easy and quick to do.

A little fiddling around and we will have a fit. Time to add the still missing front part of the keel!

Work is also progressing above the deck level: The deck house and the coamings are fitted.

For the deck house sides as well as for the coamings the plan calls for a sandwich from a plywood layer in the center with two external layers of WRC, and so this is what we do:

Yes, Gartside has a hand for beautiful lines. I remember having seen a Gartside design #109, now sailing as "Freya von den sieben Inseln", during her build in the boatyard, and her lines were breathtaking.

Here a comparision of #207 with some other, IMHO also very beautiful designs out of my selection process:

http://i554.photobucket.com/albums/jj436/zauberberg_2009/Comp_zpsnhmfad4o.jpg (http://s554.photobucket.com/user/zauberberg_2009/media/Comp_zpsnhmfad4o.jpg.html)

From left to right: 34ft Burnett, 22ft Romilly, 34ft #207, 30ft Roxanne, 30ft #109


I read whole thread and made an observation; If you mean this http://www.schiffsspotter.de/Kutter/Lotsenkutter_Freya_von_den_sieben_Inseln
builder has taken some freedom of design, dimensions are different, especially beam 3,63 is much more than my 109;s 3,05
It might be design 223?

Matti

I recently got the plans for 223. It does look about right for it. The beam is listed at 11'4" (about 3.45m?).

03-02-2018, 12:11 PM
Yes, Matti, this is the boat I then saw in build, and this was long ago, 10 years of more, much too long that she could be a #223, which came out only recently. The boatyard who built her then was the "Bootswerft Neuhaus", and if you look at it's website www.bootswerft-neuhaus.de and open the category "Letzte Arbeiten" (means last works - website update long overdue) you still can see the boat being built. And you can see a photo of her plans - she is a #109.

Or to be more precise, her plans are the #109 plans. I had spoken with the builder then and he had told me of some changes he had made. I remember that he had reduced draught and if you look carefully at the plans you can see the changed keel line. I don't remember, whether he also changed beam. But also notice from the keel line, that this #109 is not your #109, I think your #109 is a younger version.

Beside of this special model #109 it seams to me, that the more recent Pauls remakes of the Falmouth working boat are, the more beamier they become. This can be seen at the migration from Surprise I to II (#131), also in the change from #116 to #116a and others. Paul wrote me, that he found the perfomance of the type was not suffering drastically from increased beam, but that the internal appearance improves a lot. I think this is the reason why my #207 is so beamy, 3,80m, and I like it.

For sure not, Frederik. I planned her years ago to be ready for spring 19, but we will see. Idea was to have hull and interior ready until June, then glassing and painting, and over the next winter spars and system installation.

Max F
03-12-2018, 12:47 AM
That would be nice!
But this has to wait at least another two years, before the Henry will splash the water.
At the moment I canīt wait for warmer temperatures to start working at the hull again.
Greece is absolutely in my focus for sailing,but I guess it will be a hell of a drive by car and trailer.

There is a filler piece inside of the hull, over the deck level. It beefs up the hull (here still to be completed by two more layers from the outside) and carries - together with the hull - the top rail of teak. This filler beef, made of Iroko, was glued in place here and trimmed on its top side.

Some update on the project here.

Space at the engine beds towards the stern gets so confined that the engine mounts wouldn't fit in their normal position. So some change was in order:

https://farm1.staticflickr.com/820/26654744887_4ce68e41f4_c.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/GBox22)

Now the engine fits snuggly:

Thomas , does that yard where you’re having the boat built do many full builds these days or is it mostly repair work?

zauberberg

There are new builds or re-builds, but rarely more than one project in parallel - its a small boat yard. I think it is fair to say that major work volume is repair work with a new build from time to time as a bonus.

My sailing area in Greece are the Northern Sporades, the islands of Skiathos, Skopelos, Alonissos etc. It‘s a wonderful sailing area, a little bit more windier than the Ionic Sea, but usually not as hard blowing as the Southern Agean can be. Enjoy your stay in Greece, if you ever plan to come back let me know next time so that we can arrange something around wooden boats!
