TotalBoat Work Skiff

Post by hoodman »

If you haven't been watching the youtube series on Building the TotalBoat Work Skiff you are definitely missing out. There is a ton of good info packed into these videos. Not all of it applies to plywood construction but it has been fascinating to me to see the techniques.

I've watched quite a few other videos by the shipwright on repairing and replacing planks, caulking seams, varnishing, etc. It is fascinating and informative. As you say, you can learn a lot.

I have watched all his videos from the beginning. I really like his insights into the way he does things, and why.

Looks like someone who would be interesting to sit and have a couple beers with some afternoon.

This really is a great thread of videos. It's great the way he makes things simple as a priority but it takes so much skill to make everything look so easy.
