Barry Pilotage Cutter
« on: May 15, 2020, 11:33:11 AM »




   Almost finished Cervia so as a bit of overlap I am bringing this one out of the box .  The weather is improving so I am, able to work outside and not swallow lung fulls of sawdust and keep hoovering up . The boat is plank on frame , double planked .  easy enough to start with a bit of recreational routing to form the keel rebate for the bottom plank. The jig makes the positioning of the frames easy but I can see trouble coming down the line when it comes to wrapping the planking around the stern . The lines in this area are very fine and the finish over the walnut will be varnish so no chance of filler fudge.


 I will start a build log in workboats but for now this is for starters

I've not seen this method of construction of framework before but I like what I see - tagging along  :-))

Well here we are with Arfer, I am calling it Arfer because it's arfer boat.   I have been using Titebond ultimate III for gluing the frames.  (advanced proprietary polymer). Boy , does that stuff stick ! left overnight if something has slipped and you want to adjust it , forget it, the wood will fail first. I will be changing to Gorilla glue for the planking, not so much of an animal , also the Gorilla does not stain as much. I am quite pleased with the lining up of the frames , just a couple of frames I feel the need to pack out a bit before fairing the hull.

  Looks as if this is the sweet plank line . It also ties in nicely with the fiddly bit above the rudder and prop.

  Well , one side planked up . Nearly fully sanded to a true surface , taking it in easy stages ,too much in one go and I get "Plankers Cramp"in the hand. Been looking at the water line which on this model is defined by a strip of light colour wood. Interested in this as the second layer planking is different above and below the water line so the run pf the planking needs serious consideration.
