  • Small Fishing Boat

    I got the plans for this little 2 man fishing boat and was waiting for the weather to warm up a little before starting to make it. I'm working on it under a tarp outside my shop. Got started at it yesterday afternoon and here's the 'roughed in' pictures. I have about 8 hours in it now . I beleive the finishing is going to take a lot longer than the building because of waiting for curing time between coats. This is my first time at boat building and I find it quite interesting.

    Hi Bill,cool boat.Now all you have to do is get it finished in time for the salmon run.Dont forget to send me some if {when} you catch some.Thats what I miss about B.C.,the fresh from the water salmon{and the mountains}.Take care and have fun finishing your boat.

      Looking good William. I have been wanting to build a Kayak for a few years now but can't get the marine plywood around here and the big thing is I haven't gotten the courage to try something like that yet. lol

      Take care

        There are no salmon in my part of the province. I am in the southeast tip of BC. The salmon are to the west closer to the ocean. I am making the boat for an inland lake just down the road from me . It is called Duck lake and there is some great bass and perch fishing in it.

          William, That is one good looking boat. How did you get the sides to stay in the bowed out positions?

            Groozier;
            It was easy. When you cut the chines (strips along the bottom) on a 22 1/2 degree angle and fasten them to the bottom with screws every couple inches, it automatically bows the flat bottom up from each end and then when the sides are screwed on , they bow out as shown. Then the gunwales (ususlly pronouneced gunnels) are screwed on every few inches along the top by clamping just ahead of screwing. I'll post a side view shortly when it is done up to the finishing stage to show the curve up from back to front on the bottom of the boat.

              I can see by the side view pictures how the sides get bowed out.I will say again that that is an awesome boat. Thanks for your reply to the above posted question. By the way your scrollsaw work is some of the best I've ever seen.

                  I would not use regular plywood but Baltic Birch is different. On Steve Garrisons Facebook page someone posted a shell with either Baltic Birch or something like Spectraply. I was pleasantly surprised by the lack of tearing or splintering with either cutting or sanding.

                  Using solid...

                  Bruce took the “zipper”ff today. Yep, the stitches were zipper type. When we were packing up at the market Sunday, the coffee vendor asked if we wanted a taste of his chocolate whiskey coffee. We said no thanks. After driving to Annapolis in the truck today to get Elliott, Bruce said he was going...

                  I usually don’t use plywood, but I think it works beautifully with these patterns. On my to do list in January.

                  I enlarge and shrink patterns all time. I use rapid resizer. I did locate some scrap wood that would be perfect for the smaller size. I also mad some of the nativity Steve had a week ago. I’m taking stuff to the market for feedback. Of the 11 ornaments I took last week I came home with 3. Guess you...

                  And to do something different. I’m trying to schedule part or a whole day to bowl grinding. Of course, we had a 7 year old visitor most of the day as he had a half day today. So much for using the grinder. instead I put a bandaid on a scratch on his elbow so he “wouldn’t bleed to death”. Than...
