Hi All,

Here is a quick update of where i am with my Waverley, this is the one prior to Tug-Kenny build here. My prefered method for this boat is steam as you can see below

Pictures of the about to be started hull.




Steam engine running at 10PSI



the came the windows, like most non tug based paddlers this one has plenty of windows that needed to be cut out. here i cheated a little, the plans were copied at around 101% and then spray mounted onto the hull. this seemed easier that trying to acuratly mark them all out. the idea of 101% was to take into account of the curvature of the hull, the rear section was straight so 100% was used for the copied plans.



clamped to the bench for stability and the masking tape is to remove some of the flex in the hull


then a few hours with files etc i have one side of windows cut out.





94 windows later





this is where i am currently and should restart again soon, as i just need to finish off a tapping stand i am making.
