DN Ice Boat #2: Strange behaviour in the fir sides....

10-15-2008 10:55 PM by Heyz | 0 comments »

First I’ll update you as to the the wood I used. I talked to my friend and he reminded me what we made it with. The sides and bulkheads are fir, with marine ply to skin them. And the plank (which I don’t have a picture of yet) is laminated with Ash/Cherry/Ash. It’s got some nice shape to it, I’ll post a pic of it soon. Anyways, I’m looking for some advice here: The first picture is the ‘left hand’ side of the crack or whatever it is. ItR...

56 foot Schooner transom replacement #4: Let the wrecking begin

09-01-2008 07:57 AM by Scotach | 5 comments »

We are making great headway on the transom project we began several weeks back. The original scope of work was to replace the transom on a 56’ stays’l schooner. Upon surveying the boat before work began, we found a massive section of rot in the horn timber at the top of the rudder trunk.
