Discussion in 'Skiffs and Small Work Boats' started by El Mar, Oct 20, 2011.
Good to see youth involved in boat building. Do you sell those skiffs?
We don’t really sell them but could build one for anyone who wants to pay for materials.
The students pay for their materials before we start. I have built boats for community members before. Basically students do the work. Someone else pays for materials. Labor is basically free, but remember. They are students.
Please Splain what Cha meen for the folks to the Nored. !!
Lol. I edited my autocorrect and added more info for the geriatric DEBF members.
Hey now even I can understand Dat.
Don't you have a donation jar ??? I'll send you one if you would like. I hope you let the folks who have them built that the students work for donations.
We have a similar system up heaha. but some of the folks who buy Aluminum ramps from the school do so because there quite inexpensive. The problem is you have to get on a list and that list sometimes favors some customers with much money. (Power) Guess that may be a problem in most places when you give out freebees.
I have one very similar. It was built at the Land Mark School In Beverly Ma.
I had the seams glassed added a skeg. I have two rowing stations. I think they call it a prides rock skiff.
Merton has SS screws & bolts @ a good price
Some from today. Almost finished.
Kids do some nice work !!
Question if i may, What kind of wood do you have on those rails and inner chines ? Mahogany perhaps ? Ok another one, do you scarf the panel joints on the bottom and sides ? I only ask because i see fisher plates on the sides but none on the bottom.
Looks like Red Merranti decking , a type of inexpensive mahogany available at big box stores.
Is that Plastic or a wood product ? looks good to me
