« Part 7: Stongback and Molds Pt. 2 Part 8 of Sunshine Yacht Tender Model series Part 9: Keel and Deadwood »

Yesterday I received a package from HobbyMill. Inside I found my wood order neatly packaged and individually labeled by species and thickness.

Here you can see the three types

Soft Maple for White Oak

Alder for Western Red Cedar

and Jatoba for Mahogany

I am very pleased with the entire purchase from Jeff, he even through in an extra sheet of Alder since he suggested i practice the finishing since it is very soft and should probably be sealed.

Build Costs:
  • Plans – $45.00
  • Lofting Supplies – $6.50
  • Strongback and Molds– $18.50
  • Soft Maple, Jatoba and Alder – $94.50

Total Cost = $164.50

Build Hours:
  • Lofting – 16 hours
  • Molds – 12 hours
  • Materials Research – 4 hours

Total Build Hours = 32 hours

Next Steps
  • cut and fit structural pieces (keel, stem, transom)
  • start planking the hull
