Building the "Swiss Army Knife" of Small Boats...Wood Duck Double #12: Tacking the Hull and Deck

06-27-2020 05:31 PM by DustyMark | 0 comments »

Establishing the ShapeThe objective of this process is to establish the shape of the hull and the deck, including their fit with each other. This is done with thickened epoxy. I decided to use some gel superglue to be sure the panel sections didn’t creep out of position. I had some left over from my last build that was probably close to its shelf life. Here are some superglue tacks in the bow and in the stern. View of the stern area with some epoxy applied ...

Building the "Swiss Army Knife" of Small Boats...Wood Duck Double #55: Brushing the Blind

Building the "Swiss Army Knife" of Small Boats...Wood Duck Double #56: Cockpit Shroud

09-09-2020 02:10 AM by DustyMark | 0 comments »

Amazing ResultsI’ve gone back and forth on how or whether to sew a facial shroud for the blind. The opening between the doors and the dog cockpit is slightly oversized so that I can paddle with the doors closed. I decided to give a shroud design idea that I had a try. I’m glad that I sewed a flap and a strip of velcro at the top front edge of the dog cockpit to hold the shroud. It was better to sew those in and not use them than to wish I had sewn them later. I was surp...
