60s Sea Hawk
by Eddie Gregory
What a great site you have, a treasure to any budding boatbuilder, thanks.
I have just started building a 21-foot Sea Hawk cabin cruiser from plans freely available on the web.
So far I have built the 5 frames in oak and am just finishing off the transom.
Will not get excited until I see it laid out.
Check out my wee site at www.floatyourboat.
The plans specify 3/8 ext ply but i'm using 3/8 marine ply and fibreglassing over.
How many layers do you think I should use?
I am also going to glass the bilge area inside.
I'm having trouble using soft brass screws.
Seeing I'm glassing her do you think I should use plated steel star-head screws instead?
While the original system
worked quite well as a one-off post, it didn’t allow for updating or
posting new photographs etc.
That is why I have
introduced the new Your Pages.
This is new ‘Community’
platform is for 2018.
It is designed to put you
in control of your content, make it easier to for you to tell us about
your Wooden Boat, upload photos etc. and most of all post updates as
and when you wish to.
There is also a forum where
you can ask any questions you may have about Wooden Boats and join in
So, please come on
over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
