Building a Planked Skiff
The members of the John Gardner chapter of the Traditional Small Craft Association are a very supportive group. You will find them building boats for each other and sharing old skills with new members. It's always a pleasure to visit their website and see what project is in the works.
What to see how a traditionally designed boat is built today?
John Gardner TSCA chapter member John Hacunda is working on his first boat, a 12' flat bottomed, clinker built skiff. The design is from Traditional Boat Building Made Easy (published by WoodenBoat). It's a community effort, with chapter members sharing expertise and labor.
Here they are to share the experience with us. Building a 12 foot lapstrake skiff.
