« Part 10: Bottom Paint Part 11 of 16' Gentlemans Runabout series Part 12: Top Side Planks »

New crib with hockey socks as liners.

Flipped over with mounts installed.

Stripped frames, ready to complete planking.

On another note, does anyone know how to date the cocking mallet and hammer in the picture above? Also does anyone think that the brass rings on the end are original?

The boat looks great so far. It’ll be fun to see the decking go on. I don’t know anything about caulking hammers, but it looks late 19th or early 20th century to me.

Good build. Agreeing that brass rings are original, has high malleability to hammering. Other metal can’t sustain. I deal with aluminum plate boats, searching the web thoroughly to get good designs.

Have your say...
