I first reported on building the Dutch traditional hoogaars on this website when I was halfway. (see below)~~~~~~~~
The boat was launched in May of 2011 and is sailing in the north of the Netherlands.
The whole building-story can be read and seen on http://www.bootbouwer.nl/hoogaars.html
Dear Wooden Boaters,
I'm halfway through building a Dutch traditional fishingboat, a socalled Kinderdijker Hoogaars
The seize is 23 x 8 ft or 7 x 2.3 meters.
I use a plan drawn in 1863, from the collection of the Rotterdam Maritime Museum.
A log of the building process (in Dutch) with pictures can be seen at: de Bootbouwer.
