A Skiff Wind blows over the water-An account of my winter project to build my first wooden boat, a 13' plywood QT Skiff designed by Jim Michalak. Now that that boat has been launched and is in use, this blog will now also document all of my other boat building and general "MESSING ABOUT IN BOATS"
We have a batch of warm weather for a few days and I hope to make some good use of it. Today I went to the boat and installed the new table. It is completed but for the varnish and I am just going to wait to do that. For now it is in and I can use it and find out how well it works
Folds up for use of bunk.
I took a few minutes to shovel the snow off the decks in hopes of a sail in the next few days. I made the hinge that connects the legs to the table from some wood and some bronze spikes and roves. The hinge that attaches the 2 legs to each other is a brass hinge that was handy. The hole rig can be lifted up and kept out of the way should the bunk below be needed for sleeping, or what ever. Out board of the table I made a tray to hold what ever needs holding. Right now it keeps a battery powered led tea light.
The cabin is a long way from being inviting but it is a start and I am in no rush.
