  1. A few moths back I got Chapelle's "Boatbuilding". It is a lovely book and an enjoyable read. The Launch drew my attention due to the simplicity of its construction and I started drafting it on CAD at the same time as I was drafting the Yawl. Now, the Yawl will be clinker planked but the Launch would be carvel. I just thought it made perfect sense to build both alongside so I could have my fill of spilling planks. Or maybe just double the frustration, time will tell! Now this decision is not entirely unreasonable. Most of the CAD plans are ready. I will not use temporary frames
  2. Hello friends of the hullmodel scratchbuilding... Due to the fact I could build a hullmodel of the schooner here my collection of pictures - that will be elaborate during the next days. And the better detail of the bow part with a pencil to compare. The beauty will be 900 m/m or nearly 35 1/2 inches long. and Yours, Stan Edit: Adding the last two pictures showing the tremendous size of this hullmmodel and the cutting of the bowsprit.
  3. Have some books to trade. All are hardcovers and good clean copies. Some have dust jackets. Some have prices and or names on the fly. 1. Howard I. Chapelle, "The Baltimore Clipper", 1987 reprint by Edward W. Sweetman Comapny. 2. Howard I. Chapelle, "Boat Building", 1969 reprint, W.W. Norton & Co., Inc. 3. David R. MacGregor, "Merchant Sailing Ships: 1775 - 1815, There Design and Construction", 1980, Argus Books Ltd. 4. C.

  4. Hi, The subject of this build is the Hampton Whaler as illustrated on page 143 of Howard I. Chapelle’s book American Small Sailing Craft. For me the purpose of this project is to acquire some Cad drawing skills, enter the world of scratch building and experiment with lifting plans from books. The scale chosen is 1:44 so the boat could be built from coffee stirrers picked up from a famous coffee shop over many visits. The first step of the project was to photograph page 143 and import it into turbo cad.
  5. Dear friends, as I proofed my Corel-kit being an abbreviation of a 51 3/95 tons Revenue Cutter scaled to 1/64 (instead of the 1:50 advertised on the box's cover!) with an overstreched bowsprit to give it a goodlooking Loa in the sizelist I'm disappointed of the kit! So I go ahead foreward to the original drawing of Howard I. Chapelle in hin famous book: "The History of the American Sailing Ships" page 193. There we can find a propper drawing of the 51 3/95 tons Revenue Cutter (see below). And there will be a plenty of stupid beginners questions like: What material is perfect to fit the requir
  6. HI EVERYBODY, HAD A LITTLE TIME TODAY SO I DECIDED TO START ADDING BACK MY BUILD LOG OF ONE OF MY LITTLE WORK BOATS FROM MSW 1.0.....STARTED BACK IN SEPT. 03, 2012.... Hello Everybody, Well I am going to give it a go at building a Maryland Crabbing Skiff out of Chapelle’ book American Small Sailing Craft. I do not have his book on Crabbing Skiffs. But I will do my best with what I have to work with. The model will be made strickly from basswood. I will be painted the skiff. Now I am not sure what the paint sheeme would be at this time. Other then the majority color will be white. If
