choosing a boat for the first time???

Postby First » Thu Oct 12, 2006 11:44 am

I want to build a sripplanked boat, but I dont know how to start.

The boat should be 20 to 30 foot long.
I wonder Bandido or Bolero would do, or a boat look a like thoose?
Any one who have a good idea?

(This boat should not be to expensive, but I would like to have two engines inboard for safety).

Can I start in my garden in open sky, or do I have a building to put this boatproject in?

I like to get som knowhow an positive input, mabe I can start next year.

I hope someone can give me some good news here.

Like to hear from you!

:P :? :) :shock: 8) :lol: :wink: :?: :?:

Your boat can certainly be built outside. Many others have done it. But if you can do it, you really should build your boat in some kind of protective structure. Trust me. When the wind picks up, you'll have problems with blowing dirt in your epoxy, leaves will pile up under the boat and all around your power tools. When you right the hull, rainwater will collect and soak the wood before you get a chance to protect it and it goes on and on. Go to this URL and check out the plans for the Stimson Marine bowroof. It's fast, simple and looks like it does a great job providing the shelter your project will need.

Isn't it amazing!! The person that never has the fortitude to pursue his own dreams, will be the first to try and discourage you from pursuing yours.

Thank you Dave!

I will look afther this idea more (I have alredy been there), and see.
I think this was quite a good idea, the best I know to day. And the price was just what I have in my mind. Have looked at many uppertunities, but they where too expensives.

I will probobly order a copy of theese plans soon as possible.

Thank you!
:D :idea: :D :idea: :D
