I know that this is kind of Backwards, Gallery first then a Revised Build log. To start I have had the drawings for this boat for over 25 years ( purchased thru WoodenBoat. ) so, when I was Approached to build the boat I jumped at the chance.The Boat was built bent ribs over molds just like the original.  So I started by making the molds, the first shot is the clients boat

Once satisfied with the spars they were varnished as well * just a note: there were 4 to 5 coats of Epifanes varnish applied and sanded to 1500 grit sandpaper in between coats , then came the fitting out Sails blocks cleats, I should also point out that the Hull had 3 coats of paint wet sanded to 2000 grit sandpaper then buffed with 3M buffing compound then waxed

Finally the Roller furler was made along with the Jib, Bowsprit finalized , Standing rigging finished Solar panel made and installed along with Vhf antenna and Air cowl in the bow. In conclusion she took about 5 months to build, the Client was thrilled and said it looked even better when he saw it in person, She was a lot of fun to build
