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"
I have removed all of the station frames and got all the ribs put in.
The ribs are not glued in yet so as to be able to work thru the application of the stiffner/skegs and a possible inner keel.
It is a bit strange to see the boat free of station frames.
I used some reclaimed cedar decking to get started on the floors. I milled them down from 5-1/2" x 5/4" to 2-1/2" x 7/16". These may prove to be to thin to use. I may go up to 5/8" thick. I am using the table saw to mill the wood. Crude but effective.
Still need to put in the risers and possibly an inwhale/clamp.
