Sheathing a boat with linen
by: Cal

Well Bill all these products have been used in the past.

Not sure where you live but the lotus car factory uses sisal mixed with hemp, this is stronger then carbon fiber and not hard to work.

The work part of it is to keep a smooth strong surface straight, cotton hard to work if this is on the cheep, try silk its strong it stretches and comes in all colours.

Good luck Bill

Fire Fly or Mustang 14 build with PWC jet power

by Fred Schneider
(Fishkill, NY, United States.)

Has anyone built either of these boats?

What does anyone have to recommend if we attempt to power with a 650/700cc Yamaha PWC propulsion system?

This will be my first build. I have carpentry skills, just not a boat yet...

I am perfectly aware that the majority of Wooden Boat aficionados are sensible folk.
However, I need to point out that I am an amateur wooden boat enthusiast simply writing in order to try to help other amateur wooden boat enthusiasts.
And while I take every care to ensure that the information in DIY Wood Boat.com is correct, anyone acting on the information on this website does so at their own risk.
