Re: Converting Carvel to Strip Plank
Some people are more tolerant of the ketch's mizzen being completely, totally and utterly in the way than others of us. But that's a differ topic.
As far as the original question goes, yes you can build that same basic hull shape in a variety of ways. The original carvel version is probably most suited to those who are considering building a more substantial carvel boat down the road and wanted some practice. It is going to be heavier and probably be a little more finicky in maintenance than any of these other styles. If you wanted to build one in cedar-strip canoe style, I would buy the plans for the Cosine Wherry and follow their instructions for scantlings and glass schedule, just substituting the Catspaw stations molds. If you wanted to build strip-planking style, the follow the scantlings and techniques in Kurylko's Alaska plans.
But I think that this particular hull only really comes into its full potential for beauty when built lapstrake. It can be built epoxy-glued plywood lap, or absolutely traditional copper-fastened cedar on oak like this one that I built:
Personally, I find either lapstrake boatbuilding process to be very much more pleasant and entertaining for me than any of those other styles. To start with, you cut down the need for sanding and longboarding by well over 90%.
Amphibious Macroplankton Oughtredia doublendus
Mostly found frequenting the littoral and estuarine zones in the southern half of the Salish Sea, though sightings have been recorded both north and south of this area, and occasionally, but rarely, inland, in freshwater environments. This species lives on micro-brewed beer and dutch-oven biscuits,and displays brightly colored nylon and gore-tex plumage during the rainy season. Approach with caution!
