Hampton Whaler by NJQUACK - 1:44 Small - Finished


Recommended Posts

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.

Tracings of the keel and body plan were made and printed.

From the body plan molds were made to form the hull.  The molds were set up on a piece of plywood.

The planking will be conducted on the molds and the frames inserted after the planking is completed.
