Seems that the discussion I started in July re the boat I am building got lost when the site was hacked. I will not bore you with the previous pics I posted as they were only frames etc,I have now got to the stage where it looks like a boat. Quite a few minor hiccups but they will all be covered. So here is the the frame.As previously stated she will be covered in ply plans and have an epoxy skin over. So far spent 3 months part time as the hot weather and now the humidity is making the working days shorter.

Heyup our Keith.

Lokks like a lot of work gone into your project, but doesn't it look well?  You must be well pleased with how she is coming along.

You are going to need some proper hefty bilge pumps methinks  tounge-in-cheek

Hello Keith,

What length is the boat?
I once built a Woodwich 17ft 6inch cabin cruiser from plans, like your's a marine ply skin.

Alan

Ranworthbreeze, she will be 19 feet, going to call her "Dawn Mist 11" The first boat I built in UK back in the 60's was called Dawn Mist, which was 25 feet.Dawn was wife #1. Wife #2 has accepted it.

And one side plied up, it is getting just too hot, 35 deg every day and the big wet on the way so things will slow till the dry season.Different ply but all to BS 1088. Although that can vary according to an article in our Australian boat building magazine.
It is not perfect but will make me happy when she is launched.
