so, a few years ago I had started building a model of a schooner I had designed based on the proportions of the Grand Banks fishing schooners of the 1920-30s. The Canadian schooner "Bluenose 2" is an example.

Pictures follow below.

Frank, yes that would work but I had already bent the three 1/32" layers before I posted the first pictures. If you go back to the first page you can see the 3 layers stacked by the glue bottles. I did not take pics of that process but it was the same as I did with the transom seat just on another form. They were bent to a 3.25"radius curve (a 12'scale radius).
I was already planning on having to cut the rabbet in back then. The rabbet gives me a better gluing surface than the angled face I had temporary sanded in around the shape of the transom.

Frank Palmer Posted - 12/03/2019 : 09:44:42 AM

Phil, too late to suggest this now. But perhaps 2 pieces of 1/16" basswood one the full width and one the rabbet width sandwiched together.
Carrie Creek Posted - 12/02/2019 : 6:09:49 PM
Frank, she sure is a beauty!
so, back to the schooner, as I mentioned earlier time to cut the rabbet into the transom edge. This is being a slow careful process. Cut a little on one face then the other and work down to the needed depth and angles.

cutting the back face

cutting down to the back face

checking the depth for the planking

finished starboard side, ready to tackle the port side

when finished I can remove the transom template

some more small steps to come....

Phil, she's a slick little thing. Going back over 40 years ago a buddy of mine had a Silver Slipper fiberglass boat very similar to that one.

Only problem Frank it won't fit on "Wreckers Reef"!!!

They said they were going to the Wooden Boat Show in one of the episodes to give a talk and update. I’m amazed how well they are getting this thing done. For a couple of novices they have their boat knowledge down pretty good.

I’ve always wanted to build a wooden dory or something. I’ve considered using the “stitch” method.
Carrie Creek Posted - 11/02/2019 : 9:52:31 PM
Frank, I found the only mention in the July/August 2019 issue #269 of “Wooden Boat” Mag. in a column about resources for boat building. Just a mention how the WoodenBoat forum helped them over some rough spots.
Frank Palmer Posted - 10/30/2019 : 5:17:45 PM
As a boat lover I find it quite interesting. They started out with full time jobs and working on the Arabella part time. Now they've quite their jobs and are being financed by the YouTube series and several other sites.

Carrie Creek Posted - 10/29/2019 : 6:50:48 PM
Frank, thanks for the link, very interesting. I think I might have seen something on this in my “Wooden Boat” mag. I will have to look it up, looks like this was started about 2yrs ago. Gives me a starting point!

Jerry and Carl thanks for stopping by, appreciate it immensely!
TRAINS1941 Posted - 10/29/2019 : 11:29:12 AM
Great job Phil and really interesting.

Franks thanks for the link.
Frank Palmer Posted - 10/29/2019 : 10:06:01 AM

Phil, I came across this YouTube video of a guy building a boat from felling trees to sailing away. It’s called From Acorn to Arabella. I don’t know if you’ve seen it but if you haven’t I think you’d be interested. I get hooked on it and watch it for an hour or so per stretch. This isn’t the first one but it’s where it starts to get interesting.

video of me sanding the bevel

Looks very familiar Phil. Slow and steady wins the race.
Carrie Creek Posted - 10/28/2019 : 7:18:04 PM
Here is a link to a short you tube video of me sanding the bevel on the top of the transom.


I had sanded a bunch off and here I am finishing it off smooth. I blocked the end of the emery board up to the level needed and held it in place. A very slow process.

Next up is to trim the sides and bottom of the transom to the lines of the template stuck on the outside. Will require a new #11 blade in my knife and might need to use more than one.
More fun for the finger tips

Still following along, well, catching up more like it. Looks great. I have a Royal Caroline I get back to once in a 'long' while, for me, although I love building them, I tend to put them on hold a lot. Keep the posts coming, Phil, maybe you will get me back into it
