Row 13 build

Post by ahinkle » Tue Jun 13, 2017 9:42 pm

I am a chunk of the way through my first boat project and I am aiming to finish it by mid-August when my son and I will go on a big camping trip. I would like to share my build with everyone. I am not sure what I can add other than a journey. Here's where I am so far.

Wow! Shaping those panels took a long time with a low angle block plane. Well worth it!

Thought those but blocks needed a 45 degree bevel! Shaved them within a hair with my circular saw.

Connect the two ends of my 13'4" strongback and erected the frames. Crossing my fingers that all the angles are right!

Ask away, that is what the folks are here for. And as has been said many times before the only dumb question is the one not asked.
This a great father and son project. He will remember it forever.

Fun project. I love that your son is so involved.

I will be starting our first boat with my 7yr old boy in a few weeks.

How did you convince momma to let you build in the house?!??!?!?

Row 13 is a great little boat. I built one as a 2 part nester to sit on the foredeck of my sailboat. She rows nicely.

The first photo shows her assembled, the second her broken apart and nested, and the her third stowed nested on the foredeck.

Your build is looking great. Enjoy!

Thanks Fuzz for the encouragement! I got a question coming right up!

Narfi, good luck on your build! When my ex left, I felt I no longer had to ask her for permission. Go figure

Glossieback, that's fine looking R13! Thanks for sharing

I wanted to hang the panels on the frames without attaching them first, so I came up with what I call "frames dogs."

So my question is - do I attach the upper chine panel to the frames now? Or do I stitch the lower chine panel to the upper one?
