    Help !!
    I have started to build a 13.5 ft Sea Skiff designed in the 50`s by William D Jackson.

    Unfortunately I am working from a magazine article, and the plans, as such are rather sketchy.

    I have managed to make the forms and frame,plus the transom and prow, I am having a problem with shaping the keelson and keel,plus joining everything together, I would appreciate any help from someone who has built this boat or anything like it.

    I have never tackled anything like this before, and am making it in conjunction with our local Mens Shed organisation.

    Many thanks

    John W

    The same Project

    Hi John,
    I just startet the same project last week:) The Frames are ready, Transom and Bow shape also. Next I will fabricate the longitudinal stringers before I start to plank the hull. I could provide you with Photos and information while i build, to guide you through the project.

    Hej John,
    if you manage to upload the pictures please tell me how, I'm not very familiar with computers, too. On Monday I'll be back in my Shop to make pictures. But of course I will comment your pictures if they are on;)

    Sea Skiff

    Hi Thies
    Tried to download shots of work so far,but the program tels me my files are to big so I will have to consut someone:confused::confused::confused: I changed the strong back from a single plank to a double for stability, I will revert to a single at the prow when I start fitting the prow etc.

    Look forward to hearing from youhttp://www.boatdesign.net/forums/images/smilies/confused.gif

    Kind regards
