A few months ago i reported on the work done on my steel 28 ft boat.
(see A tale from the other side (http://media5.hypernet.com/cgi-bin/UBB/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic&f=1&t=009603&p=) ]

She's back in the water now, so here are the obligatory before and after pictures:

To compensate for all this steel, here'a a picture of trees that fell into the water:

This is the view from my cockpit at my new homeport. Nice he?

Big Red: If you really want it as your desktop, here's (http://www.bosmaadvies.nl/boot/serie3/big.jpg)
a bigger version.

I posted on this yard earlier. (http://media5.hypernet.com/cgi-bin/UBB/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic&f=6&t=000635&p=)
(though you guys thought they were all folkboats). They designed and build lapstrake boats. (designed as one of the two brothers sadly passed away a few years ago. He designed all the boats you see. The daysailer in the other thread was his last design)

By the way nobody seemed to have noticed this scary machine:

which I used to make my new tiller:

Nice lines. Most steel boats I've seen of that size look like they were made out of plywood.

Hi, Barteld (of moet ik zeggen hallo),

I think this picture is taken in Kampen in the harbour of Kroes. Am I right or am I wrong,

Most steel boats I've seen of that size look like they were made out of plywood. The Dutch builders are REALLY good at getting elegant shapes out of steel plate. I've seen pictures of welded steel boats that I would have sworn you'd have to cast in one piece.

Yup, it is. Goed gezien Rients.

Looks like there's another long-time lurker from Holland here.

Damn good lines.


Congratulations on work well done.

And thank you for an excellent post.

Thanks for all the kind words. Now I feel like making an appology about posting in this wood forum. There just isn't a decent community around on the internet that just discusses classical boats. Most are about "how do I connect a raymarine seatalk device to my furuno plotter". There is a low-traffic classic boat forum by classic boat magazine ( link (http://www.ybw.com/cgi-bin/forums/postlist.pl?Cat=&Board=cb))
but that just isn't very substantial. So, if you guys (and girls) don't mind, I'll be lurking around here a bit more. I promise that every post I make will be accompanied by at least 1 (one) picture of a wooden boat.

BTW, here's (http://media5.hypernet.com/cgi-bin/UBB/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic&f=5&t=003022&p=)
the story about how I ended up with this boat. By now, I've grown quite attached to her, and don't even consider buying a wooden one. She's quite fast, and extremely sturdy. And I like the way you can bang her around, and only have to sand and paint (I'm not that good at manouvering, especially when I'm safe in port after a heavy wheater sail).

Quoted by Barteld: "There just isn't a decent community around on the internet that just discusses classical boats."

This one does, and that looks like a classic you've got there, no matter what its made of. Unless its fibreglass, then there'd be no hope for ya ;)

Nice lines, and hard to pic as steel. Someone spent a lot of time rolling out those panels.
