Inspired by Walcheren's beautiful rendition of a 16' Poulsbo Boat, I ordered the CWB Monograph on the topic, c/w lines and offsets. There is also a "HTB a Poulsbo Boat" section. Although I'm still in the planning stages, the information in the CWB publication is basic at best, and questions have begun to bubble to the surface...
Frames are ½" x 1" oak. Carvel planks are 9/16" cedar. Ronald Young (designer and builder) used clenched nails (copper or galvanized depending upon "when") to fasten. I tried the "search" but did not happen upon what length of clench nails to use. In this case total of 1 1/16" frame and plank thickness. i.e. So, how much nail should be protrude to get a good clinch - use 1 ½" nails?
And to those who don't appreciate the aesthetics of clench nailing, (maybe even me) what other type of fastening sytem would be appropriate?
Bronze Ring Nails - 1" x what gauge?
Bronze screws - 1" x what gauge?
Copper rivets and burrs? gauge?
(Approx. 2500 plank fasteners req'd)
Thanks in advance.
