PostSubject: What wooden power boat   Mon Jan 30, 2017 7:59 am

Hi I am looking for some suggestions on my next kit. I cant do scratch build as don't have equipment.
Looking for a wooden boat, kit form, typically power boat style which can finish up as varnished.
Am just completing an Aeronaut Queen, so don't typically want a cruiser style boat, cant see anything in Aeronaut I like.
Multi hull is fine, twin hull, catamaran, anything considered
Any suggestions would be helpful.

Hi Koi,

Here are a few suggestions from a few manufacturers. I hope these help.

Please consider scratchbuilding. It can be done with a drill, a hand fret saw and a knife. Couple of files help. All can be had from the Sunday market/boot fair.  
I'd be happy to talk you through it. I never made a model boat till I made a model boat and I'm way too tight to buy a kit!

Plenty of drawings around with bulkhead/frame drawings. You transfer with a scriber to the wood and fret saw it out. Much easier if you have a half decent bench vice to hold the 3mm wood in.

Just ask.

The satisfaction you will get from watching a boat you made from scratch is indescribable.
