    These are very beautiful boats. I would like to know what preservatives and finish you are using on the wood. I guess it is not varnish? Is it similar to Owatrol?

    Boiled linseed oil. Later I finished outside of the boat with tar and inside with varnish.

    Beautiful boats!

    What is the white stuff in the joints? (Between planks and planks and stem).

    The white stuff in the joints is polyurethane compound like sikaflex.

    You know that the lines are that of a 12'6" Herreshoff Columbia Lifeboat modes tender and always built them lapstrake at Herreshoff's. Great dinghy design.

    Beautiful traditional workmanship!
    I was born on a wooden boat that I built myself.
