Retro Repost #17 ~ Contour Lines

Scottsville, Virginia

Shaping and sanding with long board and cabinet scrapers. I prefer scrapers, used on the left side, and the patch in the middle of the sanded side on the right for comparison.

About this this time of year, several years ago.

I remember enjoying this part, though it was a lot of work and seemed to go on forever.

  1. You have done a beautiful job. I am very interested in knowing about building 13′ Melonseed. I like the strip planked hull.
    I have built a plywood V bottom sail boat, a Vintage, 10′ lapstrake round bottom sail boat and two 13′ stich and glue kayaks from Pigmy boats. I am looking for all the information I can get on this beautiful boat in the hopes that I can build one.
