« Part 2: Cutting the first sheet! Part 3 of Maybe the beginning of a larger project series Part 4: Bulkheads cut and mast material bought »

Have only had a few moments these last couple of days to get in the shop. I’ve faired the lines a bit more but am not quite satisfied with the result so I need to spend a bit more time. I’d cut my chine logs but I am now really considering using stitch and glue instead to learn more about the method so when it comes time to build myself a ‘pullin’ boat I won’t be completely new at it. I really like the looks of those Whitehall gigs. Well gotta get back to the office and keep going, on the upside holidays are not too far away!

Potentially the new site of my shop and home. If things work according to plan :-) The shop (on the left) is actually bigger than the living quarters.

good luck with the new space! good luck with the stitch and glue…I am not sure its necessary on the PDR…but I totally understand the thinking of using the PDR as a learning tool…

The whole reason I started building her is because I want to learn to sail on it…so when I finish the weekender I will feel ready to sail…so I get it!

good luck…

here is what I am going for:

If you use the pdracer.com—-SITE MAP you will see a whole slew of sail plans…this is supposedly the easiest to learn and rig and sail…

I hope the new place works out for you. Looks like giant workshop, something many of would like. I think the stitch and glue is worth learning, especially on a small boat, good idea!

I’d been leaning toward the LoM sail also.

The new property is just a shade better than a dream right now…there is a lot of sorting stuff out before I can make some decisions.
