J boat build


       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hi guys,

I just wanted to let folks know that I'm starting a J boat build.
This is the 1937 version of Yankee.
Length is 94.5 inches
Beam is 16 inches
Ready to sail weight should be around 72 lbs.

I got the frame kit from Rick Shousha in Montreal, a great guy to deal with.

I just finished planning and ripping 90 cedar strips for the hull planking.

Work continues!

Blake

Re: J boat build

Wow that is a serious build. You are not going to be able to store the sails and mast like you do for your other boats!

Re: J boat build

Dennis,

No I won't, as the mast is going to be close to 10 feet high!

Re: J boat build

Very cool. Those were/are very impressive boats in full size. I look forward to this, I am hoping, build thread.

Re: J boat build

Guys,

I will being a full build thread on the Yankee.
Don't know how often I will be posting my progress though, as this is a filler project for when my other sailboat project gives me the time.
I'm presently working on the plug for a mold of my IOM, which is my primary project at the moment.

I will try and post something every week. One good thing about working in both wood(J boat) and fibreglass (IOM) is that there is lots of glue curing time, so I switch back and forth from each project.

Re: J boat build

You'll have lots of fun with the planking. Are you planning on tapering each plank as in the full size?

We will see once I get into the planking.
This afternoon I worked on the bow and stern blocks. They need to be rough shaped and glued in place before the planking can begin.

Work continues.

Re: J boat build

This will be very impressive. I anxiously await seeing the sail winch you will be using and the batteries!
