It’s one small step for a man, one modest leap for a boat. – Mr. Shantyboat.
I did my first cutting after work Friday night. It’s not much, but it’s a start. I am building a version of a Puddle Duck Racer, aka PDR, designed by Jerome Delaunay. It’s called the Scow 244.
Life always seems to conspire to take time away from boat building, but I got a couple hours in, and on a boat this small and simple, that means some noticeable progress.
Basically, measure, mark, cut. Then I used Gorilla glue to add the two stringers shown in the plans.
It is SO satisfying when you start to see pieces of a boat, especially when you have both sides slammed out ready for two or three frames to give it some shape.
