Well, I finally started my next boatbuilding project. It's a Jolly Rocker by Jordan Wood Boats, for my grandson. I'm hoping to have it done in time for Christmas (I'm a very slow builder, so I better get moving!). Here's a picture from their web site of the finished boat:
It's a good design, and the plans are well done, but I just can't resist messing with a good thing. So I'm converting the slab sides to lapstrake construction, and adding a few details so that the boat "sort of" resembles my Penobscot 14. Here's the progress so far:
I used some battens to line out the planks, it was more difficult than I thought it would be, but I think I've got it right. We'll find out when I make some "pattern planks" to test it for sure.
The sculling notch and the trim piece aren't shown on the plans, but I added them to mimic the Penobscot, and I think they look good.
