I've had plans for Atkin's 28'8" Fore An' Aft Cutter and while I'm not set up to build a full sized version at the moment, I thought I would build one in one inch equal to one foot scale. That way I can work out a materials list for the full sized version, hopefully figure out some of the problems to be faced in the build, and have fun winter project to work on. I also thought I'd share my progress as I went along.
This is the first time I've actually lofted out a set of plans and there have been some head scratching moments. Especially when buttocks height and waterline half breath were in impossible relation to each other at station 9. After a lot of erasing I think I finally have it pretty well sorted out.
The backbone is pretty chunky, with keel coming in at 6"x8"x22' and most of the other pieces 10" wide or better. So far I've got all of the stem, keel, and stern post cut out.
More to come as it gets done.
