A Lady J follow-up...

Here's a long delayed follow-up on Lady J. The interior paint is done but we have some assembly of various parts and the cabin sole to finish.

Here are some interior shots:

Starboard forward


Port forward


Starboard aft


Port aft


V-Berth


Head


Of course, we've been busy topside as well. The boat is filthy at the moment.

Looking forward


Looking aft to Port


Cabin trunk face


Fore hatch


Looking aft


Cockpit coaming


Aft cabin port


Aft cabin starboard


Cockpit forward


More parts awaiting installation.


and


Then there was the mast work. I finished the cuts, scarphing (16:1) and glue up of the various parts. Then came time to plane, trim and shape the radius. all by hand with antique planes I bought last year.

These side panels curve and change demensions along their length. Perfect match...

and



These fore and aft pieces are radiused along their length. Fun job with an 80 year old plane.


So there ya have it for now. More to come later this month...

Thank you Sir. While I couldn't picture myself owning one, I certainly love the look of a wooden boat, and admire the efforts of those who restore and maintain them.

"The boat is filthy at the moment." - never come see mine, then! Different definition of filthy, I guess :-)
Thanks for sharing your work - you are justifiably proud of it. If only I had that darned wining lottery ticket....

Great work. Seeing this kind of progress and what can be done is a much needed encouragement to tackle my own projects.

Charlie, You guys do really beautiful work.

Thanks folks. Mucho trabajo in those pictures. She's coming together though. Now I get to finish the mast, install engine, deck hardware, interior parts, portlights, new cabin sole and a host of other little things by mid May....
