Shipbuilding plans,can i build a ship?
ive been intesterded in building a ship for awhile and i recently saw the movie Robin Hood, and when i saw the ship that robin was on when there were dressed as knights and i thought it was really cool.
is there anywhere i can get plans/blueprints for a ship like that or anyother wooden ship like that.
I am looking to purchase plans for a Jarcat 6 trailerable catamaran, designed by Ross Turner?
Anybody know where to find them? My emails to Mr. Turner are returned undeliverable.
Expoy Question (2 part/marine) Wood Jon boat – only expoying the seams?
I build a wooden jon boat. The boat is 7 feet long, by 2 feet wide. The sides are 13 inches. If I just expoy the seams and then paint, will it float? I used 3/4 inch pine wood to build it, and used waterproof glue and brass screw to fasten it together. I was told this would be fine, because it will not be in the water all the time. I was planning on just using exterior house paint as by primer coat, and then cover that with a floor paint designed for bathroom use. I was told this would be fine, based the fact that it wouldn't be in the water all the time. Is this a good plan or was I mislead? I'm asking because some people say to expoy the whole boat. I want to use 3 to 4 hours, every other weekend. I only need the boat to hold up for one summer.
