Catterline Boat Building Progress - Week 8

Latest Headlines - October 31, 2011 - 11:01

Momentum is building with seven people turning out on Sunday, including Brendan Hall our first youth and Gary Donaldson, from Todhead Lighthouse.  Gary brings experience of building wooden boats with the Galgeal project, a great project that helps unemployed people on Clydebank by teaching traditional boat building skills.

The bow apron (inner) stem that was laminated last week has cured and has been cleaned up.  It is a wonderfully curved piece of wood that will form the bow of the boat. 

The outer bow stem was laminated, using the bow apron stem as the mould.  The stern apron stem was also glued up.  A dry run had been done on Friday that had identified more braces were required.  The gluing process was aided by the addition of more clamps.  The hog that had been scarphed was glued to create a 25 foot piece of wood that will be the backbone of the boat.

Catterline Boat Building Progress - Week 7

Latest Headlines - October 24, 2011 - 10:26

On Friday Nick Dawson and Robert Plummer picked up the timber supplied by MacDougall & Masson. The timber has been cut for the stems, thwarts, hog and keel.  There are also four long straight knot free planks that will become oars.  Nick and Robert also finished cleaning up the edges of the planks that had been cut out of the plywood sheets supplied as the kit.

A large turnout on Sunday saw the bracing/moulds for the stem laminations prepared.  After drawing a line from the stem pro-forma, blocks of wood were screwed into the table (do not worry its a couple of sheets of chipboard) along this line.  A dry run was done to check that the 6mm laminates could be clamped around the wood blocks.  Then the seven 7.5 feet long laminates were painted with epoxy on both sides and then clamped around the blocks to create a fantastically curved piece of wood for the bow stem.

Once clamped, epoxy oozed out of the joins, which was scrapped off to reduce the later effort of planing hardened glue off.
