    Default Progress of my 4m - sloop

    Dear Wooden Boat Forum Users

    Herewith I attached some glimpses of my new building project.
    Small CB-Sloop, LoA 3,86m Beam 1,56m.
    Hull White Oak (17mm) on laminated White Oak frames. Half decked hull.
    Planking of hull done. Bunged (600pc) planks.
    Currently smoothing hull from the inside and outside with great care according Mr. Bud Mc Intosh hints how to do that.
    Wishing you all the best , happiness and success and good health for 2017

    regards

    Very nice. What are you doing for a centerboard? The case looks very narrow it almost appears that only a sheet of steel plate would fit.

    Welcome to the forum.

    That is a very nice looking craft, worthy of larger photos. Go for 600 wide, fixed dimensions.

    hello SoloSailor

    the centerboard will be stainless-steel plate, but plywood with lead ingots will also do. havent made up my decision yet.

    Insert full size image.

    On the ipad at least the software will automatically resize to fit the screen.

    Nice solid looking vessel. Good work!
    I was born on a wooden boat that I built myself.

    hello you all
    regarding your request about the design of my 4m sloop.-
    the hull (17mm white oak on lamin.frames) was started years ago by my old friend and master boatbuilder/shipwright g. pehrs in glückstadt/germany and designed by himself.
    due to his age (88yrs) and sickness, i am now completing the hull etc. to get this small beauty in the water and under sail.

    usually these kind of boats were built by local small boatyards around the coasts/rivers (elbe, oste, stör, eider) during the age of sail.-
    They were used as tenders for those small flat bottom coasters (called Ewer) in the coastal waters especially tidal rivers at the german west coast.
    So these boats were known as "Ewerboot".-
    Usually when not in use they were kept stowed on deck or cargohatch of these Ewers.-
    These boats vanished, when those coasters installed engines and no longer sail was used.
    Local fisherman the obtained the reminders of these ewerboots for fishing in the river by oar and by sail (lugsail)-
    Today the rest of them afloat (some older than 75 yrs) are well kept and used for pleasure with mostly some diesels installed.
    In germany there are still some replicas built and used for pleasure. Due to the sound of the diesel "tuck, tuck, tuck" somehow people at the coast call them "tuckerboot".

    Will keep you informed when further steps in completition is done.
    Currently teak rubrail jointed/scarfed but not installed yet.

    Second current building project is a haven 12,5 ft centerboard sloop designed by joel white.-
    oak keel steamed ready, deadwood finished, centerboard trunk , stem and transom finished. 22 mold finished by not smoothed yet.

    hope this information will suit you all.

    season greetings, all the best and good health in 2018

    Of course it suits us.
    It is good to know the boats context, helps us understand why she is that shape and rig.
    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    Ahh,.. Yes, Thank you Mr. Ewerboot. It is very nice to hear some of the history and background of the boats that people have.
