Great articles about WOODEN BOAT REPAIR AND RESTORATION METHODS | traditional wooden boats and yachts

| traditional wooden boats and yachts

Master shipwright Walt Ansel of Mystic Seaport will take students beyond the traditional introductory boatbuilding and boat repair courses offered here at WoodenBoat School with this challenging and very exciting project.

CINDERELLA, a lovely 25' sloop designed and owned by Henry Scheel, is the centerpiece for this two-week foray into wooden boat restoration. She has been lovingly restored over the last three seasons and will ultimately be relaunched here in Brooklin. The techniques students will use to document, stabilize, and rebuild the hull are the exact same methods used at Mystic Seaport and other professional boatyards around the country.

The goal throughout the restoration is to have a strong, longlasting, aesthetically beautiful vessel, faithful to Henry Scheel’s original vision. Wooden Boat Repair

Boat Fishing Tips and Tricks

Inshore Saltwater Boats

If your tastes run to tarpin, snook, trout, bonefish or redfish, then you will want a boat suitable for inshore saltwater fishing. It's best to have a light boat that is smaller than a 25-footer. All you need is a single outboard motor. You're likely to be in shallow water at least some of the time, so something like a flat or baby boat works well. These have a spacious deck you can use for casting, and are still float well in shallow water.

Bass Boats

This type of boat is generally suitable for tournament and sport fishing. They're colorful, fast, and ride low in the water. It's preferable if the bass boat has a trolling motor mounted on the bow. Generally they have a platform at both the bow and stern ends, which makes casting much easier. You can choose from aluminum or fiberglass.

Boat Fishing Tips and Tricks

Freshwater Boats

If you enjoy fishing in freshwater lakes, rivers or streams, then you don't need a massive boat. Instead, choose an aluminum or fiberglass boat. Make sure it's easy to transport and lightweight. Popular choices include bow riders, runabouts or walley boats, with either a small or dual console. These boats are fine for family freshwater boat fishing outings.

Offshore Saltwater Boats

Fishing out on the open sea is the most common thing people think of when you mention boat fishing. Most people enjoy fishing offshore because they get the chance to catch huge fish and use heavy tackle. It's important to have a dependable, heavy boat for this type of fishing. You'll encounter plenty of different weather and situations on the open sea, so you need to be able to rely on your boat. You can choose twin or single outboard motors, and you definitely need a cuddy cabin or a center console. If you want to spend a bit more, you can start to look at the more luxurious boats, including a bluewater or convertible with luxury quarters, and maybe even an elegant living area. Bigger boats generally have powerful inboard diesel engines as standard.

image of kapal layar mesin (KLM) or known as motor sailor taken from kasten marine design.
Kapal Layar Mesin translates as "Motor Sailor" and reflects the presence of the older sailing phinisi bow, bowsprit, and fore mast. These pics were taken fairly far up the river near Sangkulirang, Kalimantan Timur. where we lofted the hull shape and built the actual mould frames for this new vessel.
