Just started a new boat project. After seeing a photo of a small Brazzera with two lateen masts on Veniceboats.com (http://www.veniceboats.com/brazzera.htm), I had to build one!

Hello everyone. I'm starting build log of bracera (brazzera) traditional croatian coastal vessel. Scale is 1:20 and plans are from 1981 - Tehnodidakta, Pula. It's pretty simple vessel and maybe ideal for beginners as I am I don't know how fast will be this build because my table saw proxxon is broken and it's on service-reconstruction almost for about 5 month. I use all blocks and strips of wood and improvise as much as i can till i get my saw. I can't make a planks for hull, deck etc... Wood i will use is domestic pear and cherry. Thank you all and sugge
