Wood Hull Boats for sale | Shop with Afterpay | eBay myboat004 boatplans #1 for classic wooden boat stories, info, advice & news � updated daily Dedicated to the study & appreciation of wooden boats. WaitemataWoodys� was founded upon a desire to tell the stories & a need to archive the history of our classic wooden boats, the craftsman who built them & characters that owned & crewed on them. Little or no framework or longitudinal wood is used. This method is mainly confined to kayaks. Cold moulding is a composite method of wooden boat building that uses two or more layers of thin wood, called veneers, oriented in different directions, resulting in a strong monocoque structure, similar to a fibreglass hull but substantially lighter.

They are dated , not sure if thats the build year of photo year, could be both. The boat draw a total blank with me, so suspect its had a name change along the way. Can we learn more about her? Disclosure: not a Wooden Boat Bureau sale We look forward to seeing her out and about again on the Waitemata. The Minerva Talking with woody � John Wright the other day and he mentioned that he spotted an old framed photo in the dump bin at the Te Atatu Boat Club, a quick bit of bin diving reduced the photo, which John sent me a copy of and asked for more intel on the vessel � The Minerva, the photo is captioned �?.

Jones Family The rear of the family has a lot of detail, but sadly very hard to read � it says she was built by Chas Bailey, most of the other detail is just too hard to read. Well jackpot � Minerva featured extensively on WW back in March and we uncovered a lot about her provenance.

Snapshot � built in as a Auckland harbour ferry, she had a very shallow draft for negotiating creeks and estuaries. Around this time she was converted to diesel power and remained a work boat until c. Around then she came back over to the east coast and was rallied and rolled into when she dropped out of site.

There was a reported sighting of her back in under a cover in Kerikeri. Both ex K Ricketts. She was a very similar boat to the South Passage also from the same builder. Nering had fallen on hard times recently and had sold twice in the past few years at rock bottom unloved wooden boat prices. Double Island Point is a stopping point for boats heading north across the Wide Bay bar. Social media chat reports that Nering was beached as she was taking on water and sinking.

Her crew managed to safely get ashore and call the alarm. At the weekend I attended a celebration to mark the Arch Logan built launch � Ngaio reaching the grand age of years. In the last decade Ngaio has been blessed with very good owners, starting with Ian and Lancia Kohler who commissioned the refurbishment of Ngaio and then passed ownership onto Jan Barraclough, the host of the birthday party.

The launch is a stunner but you expect that from the Logan stable. I was dockside admiring the finish on the hull and I was advised by an old boy that she had been splined and fibre-glassed I had forgotten , obviously in his eyes not what you should do to a Logan. Rate this:. Share this: Email.

Either used in sheet or alternatively, plate [18] for all-metal hulls or for isolated structural members. It is strong, but heavy despite the fact that the thickness of the hull can be less. The material rusts unless protected from water this is usually done by means of a covering of paint. Modern steel components are welded or bolted together.

As the welding can be done very easily with common welding equipment , and as the material is very cheap, it is a popular material with amateur builders.

Also, amateur builders which are not yet well established in building steel ships may opt for DIY construction kits. If steel is used, a zinc layer is often applied to coat the entire hull. It is applied after sandblasting which is required to have a cleaned surface and before painting. The painting is usually done with lead paint Pb 3 O 4. Optionally, the covering with the zinc layer may be left out, but it is generally not recommended.

Zinc anodes also need to be placed on the ship's hull. Until the mids, steel sheets were riveted together. Aluminum and aluminum alloys are used both in sheet form for all-metal hulls or for isolated structural members. Many sailing spars are frequently made of aluminium after The material requires special manufacturing techniques, construction tools and construction skills. Aluminium is very expensive in most countries and it is usually not used by amateur builders. While it is easy to cut, aluminium is difficult to weld, and also requires heat treatments such as precipitation strengthening for most applications.

Galvanic corrosion below the waterline is a serious concern, particularly in marinas where there are other conflicting metals. Aluminium is most commonly found in yachts and power boats that are not kept permanently in the water.

Aluminium yachts are particularly popular in France. A relatively expensive metal used only very occasionally in boatbuilding is cupronickel.

Arguably the ideal metal for boat hulls, cupronickel is reasonably tough, highly resistant to corrosion in seawater, and is because of its copper content a very effective antifouling metal.

Cupronickel may be found on the hulls of premium tugboats , fishing boats and other working boats ; and may even be used for propellers and propeller shafts. Fiberglass glass-reinforced plastic or GRP is typically used for production boats because of its ability to reuse a female mould as the foundation for the shape of the boat.

The resulting structure is strong in tension but often needs to be either laid up with many heavy layers of resin-saturated fiberglass or reinforced with wood or foam in order to provide stiffness.

GRP hulls are largely free of corrosion though not normally fireproof. These can be solid fiberglass or of the sandwich cored type, in which a core of balsa , foam or similar material is applied after the outer layer of fiberglass is laid to the mould, but before the inner skin is laid. This is similar to the next type, composite, but is not usually classified as composite, since the core material in this case does not provide much additional strength. It does, however, increase stiffness, which means that less resin and fiberglass cloth can be used in order to save weight.

Most fibreglass boats are currently made in an open mould, with fibreglass and resin applied by hand hand-lay-up method. Some are now constructed by vacuum infusion where the fibres are laid out and resin is pulled into the mould by atmospheric pressure. This can produce stronger parts with more glass and less resin, but takes special materials and more technical knowledge. Older fibreglass boats before were often not constructed in controlled temperature buildings leading to the widespread problem of fibreglass pox, where seawater seeped through small holes and caused delamination.

The name comes from the multiude of surface pits in the outer gelcoat layer which resembles smallpox. Sometimes the problem was caused by atmospheric moisture being trapped in the layup during construction in humid weather. Fast cargo vessels once were copper-bottomed to prevent being slowed by marine fouling. GRP and ferrocement hulls are classic composite hulls, the term "composite" applies also to plastics reinforced with fibers other than glass.

When a hull is being created in a female mould, the composite materials are applied to the mould in the form of a thermosetting plastic usually epoxy , polyester, or vinylester and some kind of fiber cloth fiberglass , kevlar , dynel , carbon fiber , etc. These methods can give strength-to-weight ratios approaching that of aluminum, while requiring less specialized tools and construction skills.

First developed in the midth century in both France and Holland, ferrocement was also used for the D-Day Mulberry harbours. After a buzz of excitement among homebuilders in the s, ferro building has since declined. Ferrocement is a relatively cheap method to produce a hull, although unsuitable for commercial mass production.

A steel and iron "armature" is built to the exact shape of the hull, ultimately being covered in galvanised chicken netting. Then, on a single day, the cement is applied by a team of plasterers. The cement:sand ratio is a very rich ; do not call it concrete! As the hull thickness is typically 2. Properly plastered ferrocement boats have smooth hulls with fine lines, and amateur builders are advised to use professional plasterers to produce a smooth finish.

In the s and s, particularly in Australia and New Zealand, the cheapness of ferro construction encouraged amateur builders to build hulls larger than they could afford, not anticipating that the fitting-out costs of a larger boat can be crippling. See also : concrete ship , concrete canoe. There are many hull types, and a builder should choose the most appropriate one for the boat's intended purpose.

For example, a sea-going vessel needs a hull which is more stable and robust than a hull used in rivers and canals. Hull types include:. Boat construction underway at Bheemunipatnam [19]. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
