For a joiner and wannabe boatbuilder its a fascinating read especially the way its been designed for the min of tools and boatbuilding experience my only issue is finding a hardstanding area thats covered and big enough and not part of her indoors garden Razz or ear ache will ensue affraid

The process of clinker building is a reasonably complex process and often (especially on short beamy boats) requires a steam box. and the timber selection is far more critical than on these simple babies however if thats your abition as you say go for it and if I come across any info I will gladly pass it on to you mate

Here you go Kenny have a gander at this ! at 1st glance looks like a simplfication of the clinker process and wood selection is easy due to materials used

Lol But Barry you could always argue that it would keep you out of her hair for 3 months or so while you built it mate;)

That would be three months building a boat, four months building a model tug, four months doing photography, oh and one months, looking after guests.......That makes 12 months out of her hair!!!!!

I could get in bother with that one mate.. Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes

Very informative. Thanks Phil, I've bookmarked the site.

I was fancying building the Titanic lifeboat with loads of people in it to cover the mechanism of a few rowing. I saw it done on the film "A night to remember" and was impressed by it.

I have been collating pictures of rowing mechanisms and it looks a challenge. Could be quite a novelty on the lake. Cool

regards

Ken

I forgot to add that I have the drawings of the actual rowing boats and this is why I need clinker details. No idea what size to do but must be big enough for the 'works'
