Yet another update on the CLC Eastport Nesting Pram. The technique building this little boat is known as “stitch & glue”. Last post was about the fillets. Time for …other stuff!
First of all… with the help of a “new kid on the/our block” Nic, I scored the hard wood, Iroko, I needed for the outwales, daggerboard trunk spacers, quarter knees and mast step. Nic’s an interesting guy, architect gone boat builder. He’s built his own 27ft sailboat off of Van Der Stad designs and also various dinghies. So he knows his wood and has a small table saw and ripped my outwales. He also makes baby prams for …babies!
And that’s where I’m at. It’s been a hell of a week at the real job and I’m really getting knackered and in need of rest and a hair cut! But next week is leading up to Easter and I’m planning on going down to the farmhouse with homework….thinking of building some oars!
Before then I’ll glue in the daggerboard trunk and dress the interior floor with glass cloth. But more on that next time! So….
