Hard chine / multi chine sailing yacht by SwordsmanDreamer Seaman   Posted: 19 days ago
Hello all I'm not sure if this would be the correct place to ask this question, but here goes: I would like to build a sailing yacht (model). I think that some kind of hard chine / double chine design would be best, as that would be simpler than carvel / diagonal / strip planked etc. Would anybody like to recommend a design for which the plans are available ? I have noticed something called the Star 45, then there are some of the Vic Smeed designs, and some on the Sarik website, in particular a yellow job with a cabin, cant remember the name of it at present. This would be for fun, i dont have any interest in racing, so partly i want to build something and partly want to sail something. Thanks. Maybe 30 inches up to a max of 48 ?

I have not planked a hull before. Read and watched YouTube posts. So now it is time to give it a try.

It’s been a long day! by Bobatsea Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 2 months ago
A tip... My instructions had the planking stop at the stern hull transom boards. I planked the hull over the boards to make a nicer finish.

Albion by Gascoigne Captain   Posted: 3 months ago
[Score: 5/10] 36"/2700g Albion - Comments: Scratch built with ply and balsa with a detachable keel. One of 4 wherries built. Albion reputed to be the only wherry that was carvel planked instead of clinker. Sails really well in light airs and in a good breeze.

[Score: 5/10] 36"/2500g Hathor - Comments: Scratch built scale model of one of the restored wherries managed by the Wherry Trust. Model clinker planked with balsa.

Progress 12th January by Gdaynorm Commander   Posted: 3 months ago
Bridge structure nearing completion. Railings need some straightening and windows glazed. I assume the decks would be planked. This is one difficult unit to build! Anyone confirm that?

Andree v by ChrisG Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 4 months ago
[Score: 10/10] 32"/5000g Andree v Capable of 12mph and a runtime of 60mins Single Propellor (4 Blade 50mm) Geared to a 919d series 4.5-15v (4 Blade) Powered by Lead Acid (12v) 3Amp/h Batteries Controlled Through Viper 15 (15Amps) ESC - Comments: Purchased as an abandoned project, in fact not even started, price reflected this as it was cheap. It is a Robbe St Germain I believe no longer available. This is about the eighth model I have built and I reckon the most rewarding, lots of opportunities to personalise the ship. Lack of plans from the seller made the manufacture of this planked hull, a challenge. She looks lovely on show at home and is a dream on the water with no problem in very rough water. If you find one for sale go for it.
