The Duck Pond, 8 June 2017

Some of what has happened in “the duck pond” this week:

Great Alaskan

This should fool everyone, a foam boat wrapped in fabric that looks like planks. This is the second hull from the same dutch builder.

If you think planing a scarph in a sheet of plywood is hard, try planing ten sheets at once. I think this stack contained ten sheets – eight of 3/8″/9mm and two of 1/4″/6mm – but there might have been some 1/2″/12mm in there as well. We got sore arms and hands from the planing, but it was all done by hand. As long as the sheets are correctly staggered, you can simultaneously plane sheets of differing thickness to a constant 8:1 scarph. It was a big job, but it definitely saved time and space. The resulting hull was (still is) beautiful.

Prospector Canoe

A nice example of the Selway Fisher strip planked Prospector Canoe by Gordon Davies recently launched – love the alternating colours in the wood on the bottom. Strip planking allows a whole range of personal touches.

  1. I love this multiple scarf idea.Using it will probably prevent mistakes that are likely to happen on smaller batches.
