I've started building my hybrid fiberglass-wood schooner. I don't have the time or experience yet to build a wooden hull, but I have a Kenner Privateer 26 hull that I am making into a gaff schooner. The sparred length will be about 35 feet. I married the drawing for the hull with a sailplan from the pinky schooner "Dove", that I copied online.
I have cut off the fiberglass deck and am building a wooden deck. I bolted and glued fir clamps and cut and installed yellow pine deck beams and fir mast partners. I'm in southern Illinois, so I'm using lumberyard wood. I have cedar 5/4 planks for the deck. Today, I sawed out 8 pieces of douglas fir 1 1/2" by 5 1/2"by 25 feet long, to laminate for the masts. I'll use the rest of the fir for booms and gaffs.
This won't be a costly project. I'm building to workboat specs, and using galvanized wire and fittings. I want to end up with a boat that looks like a schooner, and on which I can learn the "ropes" for a larger schooner some day. I have the hull on a trailer, so it will be easy to move and launch.
Hopefully, I'll add pictures and have her in the water this year.
