  1. I choose the Sharpie Schooner by Midwest for my second build (their Chesapeake Bay Flattie was my first build). I've seen several beautiful builds on here, especially the log from hopeful: Sharpie Schooner by hopeful, and I'm hoping to add some of their flair to my build. Upon opening the box I sadly noticed that almost all of the blocks and cleats were plastic so I ordered new ones (along with some deadeyes and rope) from the Syren Ship Model Company (I really wasn't pleased with the thread on my Flattie). This build will probably be very slow (two young kids keep me pretty occupied outside o
  2. I picked the East Coast Oyster Sharpie for my next project using the plans and practicum by Bill Strachan and available from the NRG. Everything is outlined at https://thenrg.org/genericsharpie.php, and the practicum has tons of pictures. It is so well illustrated that I will probably limit the build log a little and not include things that are well outlined in the practicum, which is available on the NRG website for free. The plans are beautiful, the build looks like it won’t take 6 years like my last one did, and it looks like a very different kind of project, which will make a good break
  3. Here’s a new model project I’ve started while sequestered at home, and locked out of our commercial millwork shop, and the boat shop. I’m building the Chesapeake Sharpie-20’ Class, designed by H. I. Chapelle, and found in “Boatbuilding, pg. 291. This particular boat was designed as a pleasure boat, but modeled closely after the Hooper Island double ended crab skiffs. These boats were also used as gunning skiffs, and of course were raced with big summer rigs as well. I’ve long been interested in working smallcraft, power and sail, and have built quite a few full size boats for myself
  4. This is the first post in my build log of the construction of the Generic Sharpie, based on my recently received NRG plans (ordered last Monday and received on Thursday). It was designed by Bill Strachan with the plans drawn by Al Saubermann. The scale is 3/4" = 1' (1:16 scale). Bill also wrote a 277-page, step-by-step monograph to go along with the plans. This was the deciding factor in my decision to do this build. Before moving on, I'm posting some background info from my introductory post a few days ago: Lately I've renewed my interest in model boat (notice I said "boat" an
  5. This will begin my log on the construction of the generic sharpie, based on the NRG plans by Bill Strachan and Al Saubermann. The scale is 3/4" = 1". I purchased the plans, and cut out the building board base out of 3/4" maple plywood. It is purposely oversized. Picture in the photo is construction template A1 which will be glued to the plywood base. There is a blank for building jig 1 (BJ1) which will be ripped to 1-1/2" wide. I've not decided as to whether i'll mill my own boxwood for the project or ask Crown to do it. I've got a lot of things going on, so hiring
