This is fascinating.

All marine grade plywood?

How are the hull sections attached to the ribs? Nails, screws, glued or a combination? Did you have to steam pieces to bend them to fit?

What's the overall length and how's this boat going to be finished?

Very cool, Chacha. I knew you worked on the water and on the machinery side but didn't know specifics.

How do you like your job?

Some older pictures of boats and ships in the port of Antwerp. I think I took these in 2003 and 2004

All marine grade plywood? Hull is 3/8's marine plywood and the deck is 6mm okoume plywood. The ribs are 3/4" ACX plywood with the all footballs and voids filled and carefully sealed with epoxy. The chine, sheer and keel strips are all douglas fir. She will be a hard working fishing and casting boat as well as a little runabout so nothing fancy or expensive was used. Well I am using very pricey 18mm okuome for the seats and a couple of bits to be finished with varnish.

How are the hull sections attached to the ribs? Nails, screws, glued or a combination? Did you have to steam pieces to bend them to fit? The hull panels are epoxy glued to the ribs. There are enough screws to hold the whole mess together wile it was being glued. Major panel seams are epoxy and fiberglass tape fillets. It is a bit of overkill. But this will be a hard used saltwater boat. I have broken fiberglass boats and don't care to do it again.

What's the overall length and how's this boat going to be finished? Overall length is about 15'. I specifically did this hull so I could fit the entire thing into four sheets of plywood. The interior was sealed and then painted with Bilgekote. The outside will be glassed with either 4 oz or 6 oz cloth (I can't remember what is in the box now) and epoxy then painted.


I will likely varnish the seats and some other bits. But the majority of the boat will be relatively maintenace free. I think the final arrangement will be a tiller steered outboard. I will probably cut the deck one station further forward and wrap raised sheer clamps around to meet in the center to be more of an open boat for fishing. But I have really decided yet.


The original hull offsets are off Sunbeam from Edwin Monk's How to Build Wooden Boats. Like I said, I picked it because I could fit the hull onto four sheets of plywood. Plus it looked like it would work with plywood construction.

So I build a hull jig from cheap particle board using Edwin Monk's table of offsets. Then I cut and bent cheap luan plywood to fit the jig. I made a few adjustments because plywood won't bend in two directions like dimensional lumber.

Once I knew it would all work together I figured out which stations needed to be actual ribs. I cut those whole out of ACX and reframed the the hull. Then I used the luan panels to cut the hull panels from scarfed together sheets of 3/8's marine plywood.

I really love it. There are days when in it sucks and I have to sacrifice some things because of having to be gone a lot but the benefits certainly make up for it.

Are you military or civilian?

I'm civilian but the boat I am on is contracted to the Navy. The company I work for is mainly in the offshore oilfield supply business but they have a few government contracts.

Makes sense! I looked up your ship's name and saw something about the Navy. I'm pretty happy with my home-on-weeknights/weekends work gig but a job like yours seems like a nice change!

I'll PM you for more info.

Stay safe!

That is a cool job - respect!

My family has been/was in the shipping business for a couple of generations and I worked with APL for about 10 years early in my career. Prior to that, while in college I caught a ride on a container ship from Charleston to Rotterdam.

It was a great few weeks - during the day I slept and spent some time helping the crew when i felt like it. At night I ate with the officers. Then I went drinking with the crew. Then really late/early morning I would go to the bridge and hang with the junior officer and learn how to use the instruments.

Was a great experience, a long time ago.

A little bump.

This is where my summer project sits as of this week. I was hoping to be in the water by now but it will most likely be an October launch.
