Update, July 2010: the boat is launched and we’re getting a lot of use from it even as I do some final finish work. When you go to the home page, scroll to earlier entries to see the construction steps. The latest entries are going to be mostly about trips we’ve taken. It took quite a bit more time to complete than I initially estimated. And a lot more money. 🙂
Here’s what she looks like in the water…
- Length 24′-8″
- Beam 9′-0″
- Draft 2′-9″
- Displacement 5800 lbs.
The construction technique is stitch-and-glue plywood. I started the project in late 2006 and I’m hoping for a launch by 4th of July 2008 – about 18 months. (Updated May 20, 2008 – changed the links above to point to Sam’s new site, and my new estimated time of completion to early Spring 2009. It’s just a little more work than I had planned :-))
