Simple Wood Strip Construction
This hull has been designed for ease of construction for the home boat builder. The cedar strip method of building a small craft, is an ideal method for a person with limited woodworking skills, and minimum tools, to create a beautiful, clear finished, round bottom wooden boat. Even though the hull is clear finished and gorgeous, it is still very well protected with a sheathing of Epoxy Plus and fiberglass cloth inside and out. It will require a minimal amount of maintenance and be extremely durable over the many years of use. it will be a small craft that will give you a tremendous feeling of satisfaction, not only because it is yours, but also from knowing that you have created your very own "work of art" with your own hands. A completed strip plank hull is a beautiful sight to behold and it will become one of your priceless possessions. Get started on a great winter time, or rainy day project. You'll be glad that you did!
