Home made plywood boat element one – lumber lawn plywood boat NO Strategies – bending one/two” plywood





This boat is an workout in simplicity of layout and design. i desired to develop a boat with tiny trouble, out of popular supplies, that i could put a modest engine on and cruise the river at a leisurely speed on the weekends.
this is boat has no options, molds or necessitates any particular lofting or just about anything that is normally necessary of creating a boat. a stitch and glue boat would have been A great deal lighter. but lofting the designs would have built that approach additional of a output than i desired.

the content to this stage are uncomplicated:
one”x12″ x12′ boards – two whole length for the sides and a 4′ piece for the transom
two”x12″x12′ board – one board for the two body members to help the base and for the ridge (not absolutely sure what that is named) to help the vee of the fore part of the base.
one/two”x4’x8″ exterior grade plywood – this is for the back two thirds of the boat.
one/two” may seem like WAY overkill on this sort of a tiny boat, but the river i am planning this boat for is a tidal river and it has all method of submerged obstructions (which i have struck on several occasions) so i want to make absolutely sure the base is a great deal solid. the front part will be built from two layers of one/4″ for the exact purpose. any issues remember to write-up them in the feedback.

  3. I applaud you for building a wood boat! Though with so many free plans out there, I wouldn't recommend designing one too if you dont have experience. Usually planking seams arent placed against frames. Curious to see the rest. Keep at it!

  4. Congratulations for the method of building this boat. It is quite original in many ways. I am not so happy about the butt joint at the bottom, and an overlapping set of strips joining the back to the front bottom part would have rendered it a better joint.
    Incidentally, I too built a few boats in my living and other room, and my wife did not say anything, in fact she began to appreciate that a man who " builds" things is a better man than the man who just likes to " own" things. There are a few more things I built in the living room, like, all the doors in our home, all the furniture in our home, including chandaliers, all the plumbing and all the electricity in the home,. In fact there is still a swing hanging between the living room and the great hall that my grandson is using now and it was used by my daughter many years ago, and there it will hang as a memory of all the pleasant time we had together, I hate going to these homes which are bought, owned, decorated, like exhibition halls, were people just talk about what they own and where they have been, and never appreciate that behind what is owned there in the distance there is a lot of intelligence that they never experienced.

  9. well ,there is your first mistake-pre bending the gunwales.

    if you start with dead flat its much easier to get square and adds heaps of rigidity when you do bend it to shape.

    next is the material was WAY to thick,6mm or 1/4" is good enough for this size boat or maybe 8mm if you want it stronger.

    good on you for giving it a go though.

    skiffs are very forgiving of small errors in design

  15. Great choice on the glue. however I think i would have gone with quarter in plywood in the bottom and covered it in Kevlar giving it both durability and strength.

  16. Be careful boat building is addicting i am going to start my third boat here soon. Check out my channel for my boats. Looks good though will prob be pretty heavy like my second boat. Weights about 200 pounds.

  17. Have you done anymore work on this?

  18. It's called building by eye….traditional Norwegian boat builders do this all the time. Build a Priam like this one time….just cut the wood out til I thought it looked right. Keep going!

  19. Looking good. For the size of the boat, I think 1/4" plywood would be plenty thick for the bottom, easier to fit and save weight. I also frequently have projects occupy the dining table and/or living room. There are worse past times.
    Looking almost like a mini Open 60 Look forward to seeing more.
