OK, let’s get started. SourceRuns boat project.
I and my friend have decided to make a boat of flywood with the SourceRuns theme. We are going to use a boat building method called “Stitch and glue”.
This method requiers no carcass and even a lot of spanthouts to seal boards, the transom and the bottom.
Firstly, we’ve made a big 1:1 scaled draft with different parts of the boat.
There are some parts of the boat which will be copied on flywood panels and then cut.
After that - starting building! Sliced panels, bars and planks; epoxy resin and fumed silica (yes lol); glass fiber + 4 hands = boat almost done.
The last part gonna be pressurization and painting the whole boat into black-orange SourceRuns theme.
Max size - 110 x 230cm
Board height - 60cm (62.11)
Mass - 20-50 kg (unknown exaclty).
Crew - 2 + 1.
Max waterline height - about 40cm (unknown exactly).
Deadweight - about 500 kg (will be known exactly when I find out max waterline height OpieOP).
[sup]1[/sup] - they will be refined soon
In addition, we are going to make a mast and a tiller with a simple steering system; two “trunks” to store things.
Every day when we do our project, we record videos and take photos to make timelapse/image montage video at the end. In the video all days’ progress will be explained. Here in this topic I will post some images showing what we have done.
Starting from this point, the project is probably going to take about a month.
Feel free to ask any questions in this topic. If some words here are unclear, ask me too.
