    Well lucky for us our box has both right and left gloves.

    Before she went off to a youth group retreat in Michigan the builder got the building frame set up:





    When she gets back we'll set these bulkheads on the frame:



    Then it'll really start to look like a boat.

    I hope that's not her nice coat (see 67 above). Mom will not be pleased!

    BTW--the boat builder is an angel.

    Yanno, Steven, if she can work him up to scraping the bottom of your boat, well, that would be a good thing.

    The boyfriend musta been workin' real hard to stay focused on the boat while the old man shuffled around taking pictures...

    Bravo on getting the frames up! Continued encouragement and success to the intrepid builder.Only 172 days to go before the first official day of summer!



    Cheers!

    I hesitate to call Celie to ask her to babysit because I want her to work on her boat....but then she needs some cash for the sail!

    Doug Fowler will be making the KDI sails. Next project on my end is to find the fancy hardware Bruce discovered in the UK. To keep things realistic, I'll have a "keep it simple" list and a "get fancy" list for hardware. It is a tremendous amount of work putting this all together. Thanks to those who are waiting so patiently!

    Celie will be calling me when the BHDs are all secure so we can dry fit planks and the centerboard case.

    We got a few things done tonight. The bulkheads should be all set tomorrow.







    We have the 1x4 meranti for the keel, I just need to rip out the sheer stringers.

    We mounted the stems now that they are glued to their bulkheads. The cross spalls are on and the whole assembly is really strong and ridgid. In this pic the centerboard trunk sides are temporarily sitting in place. We'll need to complete the trunk assembly and glue it in place before we can put the keel on.

    Steven, It's really coming along!

    The Students of the Steven Bauer Boatbuilding Apprenticeship do amazing work!!

    Will you be showing the finished project at Mystic this June?

    I hope so, Rick. Its really neat how these kits go together. What's taken us a few weeks working a half hour at a time every few days could probably be done in a day or less of full time work. I'd love to take the boat and the builder to Mystic and to the Small Reach Regatta. It depends on her schedule. We'll see.

    And thanks for all the kind comments, everyone.

    Steven, What do you get (average of 3 measurements) when you put your calipers on the 1/2" chipboard? Thanks!

    Did you guys get the trunk in?

    Steven, I'm really enjoying this thread. Keep it up!! By the way, what's that green boat up on the rack. It looks like a lapstrake kayak? Also, just thought you might want to know. On Clint's website, there's supposed to be a video of the Drake being rowed in tandem. If you click on it, it takes you to an album of your tobaggan pictures from another thread!!

    The green boat is my Harry Bryan Thistle, a 12' fin driven, pedal powered, decked canoe.

    Weird about that video I took of Clint rowing.

    The builder is away again this weekend, her sister is home though so tomorrow we are going to work on the sailing rig for the Nutshell Pram that she built.

    Clint, you need a 5 axis cnc router and then you could do a nice hook scarf too.
    BTW, do you have a catalog - paper or on line?

    Not quite.

    Somewhere out there on the interwebs is a photo of a 25-30' sailboat with fish and other sea creatures crudely/childishly painted on the bottom with leftovers of other boats' antifouling.

    We're back at it. We glued the inner and outer centerboard case sides together and milled out the sheerclamps.

    I was standing under her bow as I took the second pic. We did wait 'till 11:30 to fire up the planer.

    The "mahogany" we cut for the sheer clamp was a little too stiff to make the bend at the stern so we scarfed some nice old fine grained spruce together instead:



    I usually worry about spruce in small boats but this seemed like a good spot for it. Up high and totally encapsulated.

    She turned the centerboard pin from ipe:




    The pin in the board engages with these slots in the inner layer of the board. So there is no hole though the trunk. And the board can be lifted right out of the case by removing the thwart.




    We have the center layer of the board cut out for some sheet lead. All ready to be glued up.

    We've been working on the centerboard trunk. And the centerboard. Here is a dry run, down:



    And up:



    And flipped open. This shows the cool pin detail that lets you have a centerboard trunk with no holes through it:



    Test fitting the sheer clamp and keel:






    We just coated the insides of the trunk with epoxy/graphite. Pic soon.

    Excellent progress and wonderful pictures Steven! The young intrepid builder must be feeling terribly proud at that fine shape emerging from her efforts. I know I would be!!


    Best regards to her and continued success with her fine build!

    Great progress so far, she certainly chose a lovely boat. Not to give anyone any ideas, but there's been a 25 foot Koster available in New England for a couple years now. Last I heard she was being offered as free to a good home.

    A terrific thread Steven, I've been looking from time to time and enjoying watching it progress. I like the centreboard set up, very clever.
