Trinidad and Tobago fishing boat by Kevin Kenny - FINISHED - using traditional building methods


Recommended Posts

I find that when you strip any wood but especially mahogany into small Long strips it tends to warp If i do not stick it right away. If it was quarter sawn wood this would not happen.
 

 The bullet is heavy, shot from WW1, but it works well. i have never weighed it. The two wooden side moldings were just put there for the photograph. I will make them up this morning and silicone them in over the next few days. To make sure i have straight ones i will make at least eight.

Plank 2 is now installed and has successfully included all the items identified as errors in the completed pirogue. Looking at the two boats together it is easy to see the difference. The flooring is so much flatter making lots of room for holding nets.

what did you use for the fine fishnet?? I am searching for a more realistic looking net like yours.
