dry fitting B1,2 & 3

dry fitting B1,2 & 3, originally uploaded by robert.ditterich.
Building the Navigator, a 15 ft open boat. A sequence of photos is in my Flickr collection, shown in the links here.
There are some beautiful curves in the Navigator, but also some potential for awful ones if the wood is tortured without care. The hull has an incredible resolution of a very fine forefoot- a water slicer- into a very flared upper outline- a splash spreader- combined with a bottom capable of planing beyond hull speed- flat across and convex along its shape.

  1. I love this build! Checking every day. It will be great to see it finished and sailing.
