I looked at several other boats by other designers for the Carolina type boat I was after. I kept coming back to the Ocracoke. When I found he had plans available for a 24 footer I didn't hesitate. I would have purchased a Jig kit for the 24 if it was available. I believe he has them for the 20 footer. She is the right size to trailer, and economy and performance are at the top of my list. I saw his boat Marissa running in a you tube clip and liked that boat a lot.
I have a lot of work to do to the boat barn, getting it ready for this build while I order materials and build the jig. I'm also redoing our basement. I'll do all 3 at once until and can concentrate on the boat itself. The barn should be warm enough this winter for epoxy work, I'll make it so. I'll start a building thread and do photos when I get started like the one being done now on the Ocracoke 20. Which will be a big help to me in the following months as well. I think the builder is NZ (thanks NZ) she looks great.

This seems to be a recurring motif on this forum. In fact I have seen this same phrase so many times I wonder if B&B really stands for Boats&Basements PeterP
Now back to the basement for a while to keep the wife happy.

Makin way. Didn't get as far as I had hoped. I had some trouble with some of my Doug Fir. Although the boards looked straight, two of them mooned or curved after I cut out the piece I needed.
When you cut a wide board into a shape you release loads that were controlled by the wood you removed and it can change shape. To avoid this, lay out your piece, cut well outside the lines and release the loads and let the board distort. Then erase your lines and lay it out again. Now when you cut it it will hold the shape desired.
The pieces look good though. You are on your way to a boat.
