      Are you building a McKenzie driftboat?

          Getting 17 feet out of two sheets of plywood is tricky, its a wonder why the first boats were 16 feet at the gunnel

            If I'm not mistaken....Doug fir plywood could be manufactured in 16-foot lengths once upon a time. My boat is scarfed with two 8-foot sheets and as a result....is a hair over 15 feet.

            Please keep us posted. I enjoy seeing your progress.

              Yep, they used to have 4 x 16 doug fir. With a 12:1 scarf on 1/4 inch ply that means your scarf overlaps by 3 inches. So when you scarf two sheets together you really end up with 15' 8". But this boat is going to be 17 feet. Apparently when you stretch a 16 48 boat proportionally it becomes a 17 54. Thats why most wood boat plans now come in either 16 48 or 17 54

                  People freak out about how to cut the scarf at first, myself included. However it's pretty easy
                  Set your plane to serious material removing depth

                  And shuck away

                  Once you get close, set it to barely remove any wood and touch it up. Once you're almost to the line hit it with a sander

                    Last scarf for a while. Finally got pretty decent at it.


                    Start on frames tomorrow

                      You can build a scarfing jig to use on your table saw...when scarfing the gunwhales and chines. It's easy to do and makes the job much easier.

                      Thanks for keeping us updated.

                        Well it's not as sexy as mahogany side panels, but I've got my frames lofted. Hope to get them cut soon

                          Looks like my geometry homework from back in the day...

                          Can't wait to see the finished boat!

                            Well it's tough to get stuff done when your table saw brushes look like this

                            Hopefully will be back at it this weekend

                              Life is crazy right now but I got my saw back in order and got my fasteners ordered today
                              Frames will hopefully be done soonish


                              I can't imagine doing this in a garage
