Recommended Posts

Welcome Caspar,  a beautiful boy you have there Nils.

We too have never been able to go for long without a canine companion in the house, as you say  Nils they bring such joy to our lives, despite the sadness we feel when saying goodbye to old friends.

doing it in a bit of 4mm thick scrap wood provides the template for the final ribs

Hi Nils

 

It’s really enjoyable watching your masterpieces come together, this one being no exception.  The care that you’re taking to get the right templates for the ribs is a perfect example for us to learn and follow.

 

Nice job!

 

Cheers

Many thanks Geert and Bruce,

 

Geert,

it realy seems to work... , there will be a sectional bulkhead in combination with the two first half-frames I`m working on this monent. Behind it the main mast will be situated, and in front of that bulkhead the cabin fits in, with entry from above

 

Bruce,

I`m pleased that you are enjoying the build. The little one is so sweet, he`s laying at my feet at the desk in my hobby room, although he still "leaks",

sometimes also on the carpet, if we`re not fast enough to recognise what he has in mind.

You will be trained soon enough.

You say making the ribs  is 'tricky', I say it is impressive. Well done.

What finish will you use on the inside of the boat?

Hi Bruce,

I intend to install the things that were necessary for this type of working boat in general, such as :

Cockpit planked floors, well-box for live fish, motor well, both access form above. Diesel tuck-tuck motor (Dummy) 1-2 cylinders, gear clutch, reverse gear, with large flywheel, machine exhaust

Cabin with 2 berths, locker, ladder, cast iron oven with exhaust over cabin roof, fresh air vent, perhaps a small foldable table.

As it is a workboat, it will mainly be held in varnished wood

The motor pics I borowed from the web.

I intend to to work some outcuts into the main cockpit floor to enable view to the stone Ballast beneath, and perhaps into deck /cabin to view underneath /resp inside cabin

 

Unfortunately I have no other finish details or plans  (pics) available at this time, other than the enclosed....

An improvement for taking off inner lapstrake contours of the hullplanking......

 

Yesterday had a vist by a freind and fellow MSW member, we meet now and then to exchange thoughts on our builds and general building techniqes...

Many thanks to Siggi52 and appreciations, for introducing his contour gauge that he lent to me, to try it out, and that will make the production of the interior hull ribs with improved contour quality, vs. my humble methode shown here earlier

I tried it out today and am very pleased with the results. It also saves time.

Just catching up on your build Nils - it is coming along beautifully.  I am really drawn to lapstrake boats.  The lines accentuate the shape of the hull and are so graceful.  The carpenters contour gauge is a great idea and one that I will remember.  Looking forward to future updates.

Hi there Nils -- I've been limping along several days with only a provisional computer and so have missed your latest updates.  Great work on the Zeesboot, which shows off your usual high quality craftsmanship.

 

And let me also say that you are very lucky to have your new little friend -- a handsome fellow indeed!  I've been pining for a dog more than I can say, but Mrs W insists we can't have another until we leave the Prairie.  Needless to say, I am green with envy.  Make sure to include him in many of your updates!

 

Cheers,

 

Martin

Thank you Martin,

I`ve been working on the front bulkhead  its seperating the cabin area from the compartment ( as a locker for anchor chain, ropes and other things that need to be stowed out of the way )

Getting further on with the ribs...

shaping, saw-cutting, a bit fairing to fit, glueing, I get about 4 per day placed.

The lead weight I still had, it was orignaly intended as an internal weight block for a schooner some years ago.

Hi Nils, glad you posted in my log otherwise I wouldn't have known about your new Zeesboot project, quite the scale, I'm sure she'll be stunning and very interesting construction.  Also congratulation on the puppy, we seem to have got ours both at the same time!  Casper looks a real cutie!

Welcome to the build Jason,

glad to have you on board, and many thanks for looking in and catching up.

Little Caspar is doing so well, one can see the improvement and also the growth from week to week (yesterday 10 weeks, since birth). He is still "leaking" a bit, but also that will be soon overcome...

 

Nils
