Haha, somebody's been on the hunt. Got all those mate and an awful lot more besides, such as this beauty, which I simply HAVE to have a bash at. HornetII, mahogany hull, aluminium deck and fin.

Gotta love that Scripps twin plug V12.

I don't have to hunt!
Pinterest Newsletter delivers 'to the door'! 😁
I'd already guessed that at least YOU would know about them.
I'm just trying to inspire a few others so you'll stop moanin' about the lack of Woodies! 😉😁 Did you check out the link?
There's many more nice boats and lots of building tips and plan links in it👍 Oh, and some essential accessories as in pic!😲
The bowsprit nets I mean, honest injun!!
Cheers, Doug 😎
36°C in the shade again today🤔 I ain't goin' nowhere til it cools down - a lot😡

Yep,I get Pinterest too, but they also mix in some of that cargo, too, which is a bit embarrassing if the Mrs. just walks in. On another boaty place people are saying the finish is too difficult! Epoxy and yacht varnish is all I ever used. Yes,if it's to be varnished it has to be well made, but so what? Does that mean all the tankers and lifeboats are badly made and covered in filler and paint?
Anyway, thanks for your efforts, Doug. All encouragements to make woodies gratefully received.
This is one I'm working on currently, when I can reach it off the top shelf! A Greavette Gent's racer, Double Time. Canadian graceful of Gravenhurst.

Cheers,
Martin

Nice boat👍 Get the Missus to give you a bunk up to it! 😁
It's not so much the finish, I might manage that😉, but the precision woodwork that daunts me - and I suspect many others.🤔
Cheers, Doug 😎

Doug, I do most of that with veneers, which just require a sharp scalpel. No need for too much precision woodwork, but if there is, you just treat the timber as metal, using metalworking tools to cut and work it. It really isn't difficult. What MIGHT put some people off are all those shiny deck fittings and hull furniture. They have to be done by hand in brass, then polished, then sent off to be plated. Each of my Rivas had over 150 separate pieces of polished brass and nickel silver to be plated!
