Big 'D': A cabin forward Day Cruiser
Big 'D' is a 16' forward cabin Day Boat with an open cockpit.
She features a vee berth for two and simple amenities.
Her unique feature is a "Retrousse" or reverse transom with an engineered bracket to support a modern outboard motor.
Big 'D' is constructed using the cold mould method with meranti marine ply over clear white oak frames.
Her hull is sheathed in fiberglass and encapsulated with epoxy resin.
Her trim is S.A. mahogany.
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.
