My latest project is building a 16 foot skiff patterned from the wooden boats built by Mr. Earle Brockway on the east coast. The skiff is an open plan and can be customized as you like or need.
Below is what the skiff should look like, this is a great example built by Greg in Oregon:
The plans can be downloaded from the nice folks at The Sound School.
My first step was to cut the angles on the 4″ x 4″ bow stem:
Transom in work (2 layers of 3/4″ plywood):
1/2″ plywood sides cut out:
Plywood sides attached to bow stem:
Plywood sides pulled in around the 2″ x 4″ temporary frame that holds the boat’s shape:
Boat in the shop waiting for the transom (the boat is being built upside down!):
