Recommended Posts

Hello, I am going to start my Triton made!

First,I have downloaded the "TritonKeelPlan@48-1" and find a printshop to printed with "actual size"

print another drawing and cut down some piece carefully

this is all I have done, my confusion is the keel wood's choice "Beech" or "Pear wood"

 

Beech is bright and easy to cut

Pear wood is hard and tough but more dark and red

If decided which wood is more beautiful. I will cut some piece to start the making. What‘s your suggestion? :)

 

sorry about my English.... :huh: ,can you read it?

First of all good luck on your build. You can use whatever you want after all you are the captain of this build. I like the pear better, and as Daniel and Pete said you can use the pear for the keel and stem and the beech for planking I think is the best choice. The beech is not that bad because the look of  it is like "small" scale oak (the wood used on a real ships).

Hello Muggle,What is the name I should call you? Are you in China?

My name is Larry And I started this build a short while ago.The thickness of the Bobstay and the Eaking is 8 mm.They will be tapered later.

Your picture of the chocks shows only 3 and there should be 4.The timber you chose is nice

Best of luck Larry

Yes there are drawings for Fore Deadwood, Fore Pieces - side view,and  Keelson pieces - side view. all the rest will have to be taken from the keel plan. I am glad tosee so much interest on this subject from China and the world for that matter
