Me too. Truly beautiful boats.

I have also liked some of their construction details like the planked down hull to their plank keel, especially as this was combined with their bronze or iron floor timbers extending far up thier topsides. That has always struck me as strong, light and maintainable.

At least some Tumlarens were copper riveted either into double planking or carvel.

The one that I knew best had a mix of sawn and steam bent frames. I always suspected that she was skip planked over the sawn frames and then the bent frames were bent to the planking. Of course, that is only speculation on my part, but its a nice way to build a boat.
