Here's a blog with some good photos of part of the procedure:
http://blog.boatschool.com/november2006/

Follow the links to see the whole process, the boat is gorgeous, more like a work of art, it is a catboat like the one I made, but much more delicate. The planking is lighter and the ribs are 1/4 the size ours were. I wonder if the sail area on their boat has to be diminished to compensate for the lack of weight?

One of the lumberyards I used to buy hardwood from regularly had Mahagony that was 2-3 inches thick, 36" x 22 feet. But that was in the Bronx! When I was sailing in SE AK I'd see huge, 4 and 5 foot wide planks stacked ten feet high. The Northwest is like the Texas of the Northwest. (Everything is bigger)

I guess I'm a bit late to this thread. I'm glad to see you're picking up something you love. Everyone should be able to do something he/she loves no matter how frivolous it may seem to some. Some women like shop therapy, and some men like building stuffs.

Are you sure you should be looking at boat pron? You could have a relapse.

Not long after this thread started, my son and I went down into the basement and built a small boat model out of scraps. About a foot long. It's just a rowboat and is not made according any any plan. Slapped together by eye. I should post some pictures. It came out pretty well. The ten year old epoxy actually still works.

It both satisfied an urge this thread is giving me and also whet my appetite for more.

Bad news. I've been seeing other forums... I actually have been posting in them too.
www.WCHA.org (wooden canoe heritage association)
and http://forum.woodenboat.com/

I don't know what to say. They're really nice forums, I think you'd actually like them.

I know about those forums and their one-track minds.

Yeah, well that's how Tiger started. Seemed harmless, but cost him $500 million in the end.
