Don Silsbe Posted February 26, 2015 Report Share Posted February 26, 2015 It's about time that I start posting photos of my build. Seems only fair, since I've learned so much from everyone else's photos. Let's see what sort of trouble this'll get me into. But first, a couple of notes. This is an NC Foothills build. If you ask (and I did) about the availability of southern yellow pine, you get a look that could have come from the movie "Deliverance". This boat will be made with Meranti (not that other stuff) and local hardwoods-- White Oak, Black Walnut, and Aromatic Cedar. Sure, she'll be a little heavier, but hey-- I'm no featherweight, either! The plan was to build her at Don R's Polk County Boatbuilding Center. We have run into a couple of snags, so I'll start the boat at home. When I can, I'll transfer the build to the Boatbuilding Center. At the present, she's a no-name boat. Not sure if and when that'll change. But for now she'll be BRS15 #152. The transom is cut out, and will be completed this week. I used walnut here, because it's free. Today, I took my side lumber over to the center, and had Don scarf them with his 12:1 power-scarfer. That was sweet to watch! Tomorrow, I'll glue up my scarfs. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
