Title: Next build- a faering
Post by: birlinn on December 07, 2019, 04:19:06 PM

I built a full size faering six years ago, and at the same time bought a Norwegian kit of the similar Oselver faering.
Just remembered it lurking in a cupboard, so I dug it out.
Here goes...

Excellent! Any pictures of the 1:1-scale one?  :-))

Yep. Sold on three years ago- I decided rowing was hard work after a bust bicep.

Just read that Wisloff Modellbygge, the makers of the Norwegian kit, were completely wiped out by a fire in 2014, along with 43 years worth of their own models.
Tragic.

Sheer strakes about to be glued. I will probably add copper rivets for appearance- I did with the full size one!
Unlike the full size, I will fit the mast, sail and rudder.

Hull woodwork finished, but lots of details to do before I get to the mast, rigging and oars.
The copper rivets are out- the grain is so pronounced it is difficult to get the holes drilled in a straight line.

Mast and rigging next. The oars look like they will be fun....

Three more oars to make, and she is finished.

Very nice build of an attractive boat.  Thanks for sharing.

Last bit of detail- the traditional wooden scoop bailer.
