Did you use the square sholdered planks for this one and the 1mm scraper for the gap? Any pics on the build or the finished boat would be awsome.

On "Love Child" I actualy bought WRC flitch and dressed and ripped it up myself to save some buck's, which it did.

The planks were all square edged and we clamped 6 together and "Buttered" the edges in one go.

Not a bad way to go if you have help with the planking, but using the dry stack method like in the newie allowed me to do the planking by myself.

Pic's of "Love Child" are in my gallery, not much on her build as it was pre-digital age, and I havent scanned all her pic's yet, but just like the 50 footer build, except about 1/4 of the size.

Well i got my price list back on th Kiri and it looks quite good. $1.54/lm for 42x15 and then an extra $9.90/m2 for tounge/groove or concave/convex.
Just not sure whether to bother with to T/G or just go for the square shouldered. Anyway i am to busy at the moment surching for the lagoon in Daves pictures

I know it is here somewhere . but if it is like a lot of the spots here like the shack at double bay it will be full of rubbish and broken bottles from inconsiderate people. And then they are the first to whinge when there is talk about pulling it down. Sorry for the detour in the post but as you can tell i have sailed to the double bay shack today.

Read the Double Bay Saga post. Piss poor effort on the grub's leaving the rubbish around. I hope their proud of their work.

That spot of mine might be a fair bit East of Princess Charlotte Bay, but then again................

Dave.

Hey dave how wide did you go with the planks you used? I am looking at getting about half in the 30mm width for the tighter sections of the hull but am not sure how wide i can go for the flatter sections? I am going for the tounge and grove even though you cut a lot of it away.

I asked them what was the most economical size to cut from their flitch, and it came back as 42x16 rough sawn.

Way cheaper than tongue and groove, it would acually be less than the cost of doing the actual machinning for T & G , as would standard square edge plank.

But do you really want to rip your own planks?

Done it before, prick of a job.
