  1. Hi all just a quick update here for those who may be thinking I just gave up so fast. Been busy working and such.i am hoping to get some time to do a little more on my boat soon. Auggie
  2. Thanks john i can only hope it is worth posting in the gallery when its complete
  3. So update to my progress here.i have cut out all my ribs and fit them to the keel as well as chosen the wood i will use for my planks wich is red oaki ripped down to 3/32" and plained dow firther until i was able to bend it easily.next will be to rip the planls to width and yake off any high spots in the ribs so they are even acrossed the out side.
  4. I am hoping that this Wil be a row boat or something closely resembling one.i stsrted this as a test of my dimensions as this is my first build i wasnt sure on a few things so i just stsrted to draw and measure. This is what i have done so far.my next planned step is to pit together a jig to keep everything true and square as i make any needed adjustments as i start to cit out and assemble my keel and ribs.any thoughts or direction will be happily accepted
  5. I am looking to start a build log nut it is a simple row boat no name and not even sure on the scale so how should i title this? Auggie
  6. Again Awsome and thank you.i will
  7. Awsome and thank you.i will post soon
  8. Ok while i tryto choose a good kit to start with my better half put me on the spot.she challenged me to design a boat my way and i have no choice but to show her now so if it would be ok i would like to post my progress. Where would i do that? Auggie
  9. Hey philbert that does sound like a really good idea! I love seafood Auggie
  10. So when i set up my account here it defaulted to my e-mail as the (i will call it ) Viewable name.is there a way to change that or do i have to live with it?
  11. Hi philbert and thank you although i am on the other coast so i may need to find something a little closer.
  12. Thank you and the more research i do the more i am leaning that way despite my experience with wood and metal work.I'm thinking of a small row boat for a scratch build though, but not sure if that would be as simple as i think
  13. Hey! So i guess it would be a good idea to close with my name in the future.thank you all for the warm reception.i am auggie by the way

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model shipcraft.

The Nautical Research Guild puts on ship modeling seminars, yearly conferences, and juried competitions. We publish books on ship modeling techniques as well as our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, whose pages are full of articles by master ship modelers who show you how they build those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you what details to build.
