Divide and Conquer


The scarfed pieces, fully cured and ready to be cleaned, is turned into our full length keel plank and then milled to its final thickness before being sent over to Jake for marking and shaping. We’ve now got five people working on four separate projects for the Corinthian; although there’s less opportunity to double check each other’s work, we’re making acceptable progress (for five novice boatbuilders).

Meanwhile, work continues on the bedlogs and centerboard trunk. The trunk’s edges are routed down to match the fore and aft headledges, and the rabbets on each bedlog are further refined to hold the centerboard trunk.


Finally, a stack of 2 inch plus (or 9 quarters) white oak is eyed over to select the bits that will make up our skeg and deadwood laminates.
