Clinker Whitehall Splashed!

Postby scottinwv » Mon Jun 10, 2013 7:38 pm

Splashed the Whitehall a few days ago!

Glen-L plans, stretched to 18 1/2', done in 9mm okoume ply.

All brightwork is white oak with Schooner varnish. Exterior is semi-gloss Pettit white, interior is Interlux Seattle Gray. Sheer is Interlux medium blue. Trailer is a jet-ski trailer stretched 11 feet.

Weight is around 300 pounds. Tracks extremely straight. Rowing solo with 9' oars I did just over 6 miles in a little under 2 hours. 1 hour 15 minutes going upstream against .9mph current, 40 minutes back, tired, but with current.

Nice job Scott. Looks very traditional. Will you be at G7 with it? I'd love to see it up close. Perhaps a regatta could be organized!

I think the Whitehall is sweet. Not knowing a lot about boats in general and sailboats in particular, can you put in a small mast and gaff rigged sail or is it not suited to that type of boat. If it is I think I've found my next project. BTW I haven't finished the Tahoe yet and I'm already looking around.

Retroman,

That is beautiful! The clinker planking looks really classy--congratulations to you!

Tony - you can add a sail to the Whitehall but we don't provide details. This info may help:

Thanks, Gayle.

Tony,

I used 9mm okoume for the planking, I'm not sure if it would be stiff enough for a sail rig since it isn't built to Glen-L specifications.

Built to their specs you shouldn't have any trouble with a sail.


Bergy,

I was able to hit 4.5 on the GPS against the current tonight and 5.5 with the current. 3.2 to 3.5 was a good sustainable cruise speed.

G7 is about 400 miles from here, so I don't think I would able to go.
