Seemed to take me forever but its done…and now once the epoxy firms up I will start working inside the boat…with only one more week of school….WOOT I cant wait!

Shipyard Memories #13: Two Cape Scott 36's: Cold Molded Construction

02-15-2011 06:39 AM by shipwright | 7 comments »

This is the third in a series of blogs on the different types of wooden boat construction I’ve done. The first two covered traditional carvel planking and framed plywood construction. This one will concentrate on a method called “cold molding”. Cold molding refers to the fashioning of a hull form by gluing up layers of thin planking in different orientations much like a sheet of plywood is made, but in this case it takes the shape of a boat. There are several methods by ...

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

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...

DN Ice Boat #1: Not really the beginning....

10-10-2008 08:42 AM by Heyz | 0 comments »

First of all, thanks to Trifern and Max for beating me to posting anything. They’ve given me welcome comments before I could do anything! Been reading this site daily for a couple of months now inspiring myself to build again…. So I’ll start with a work in progress. A couple of friends and myself decided to build our own DN ice boats sometime last year. I’ve already got one that I purchased a couple of years ago, but that’s only have the fun! So we got toge...
