2 paduk hatches for a 46 ft Princess motoryacht

  

2 paduk hatches for a 46 ft Princess motoryacht

Three new boats in the making

We currently have 3 building projects in the workshop:

 

A superfast sailboat for 2, an oceangoing rowboat also for 2, and a traditional motorboat. 
The sailboat will be made out of ply, CNC routed, while the rowboat is made of structural PVC foam combined with flax! and epoxy. The traditional motorboat will be built stripplanked with laminated veneers, coldmolded.

At this stage the rowboat nears completion:

 
Oceangoing rowboat - structural PVC foam, flax and epoxy
 

 
Lines plan and halfmodel of the classic motorboat
 

 
Lines plan and 3 dimensional Delft ship prints for the sailboat

 

Slag om Gent - 25 augustus 2012

  

Ommelander update

 
And the deck work continues: plastic tape was put in the now routed seams (green), and the next step now is filling the seams with special flexible polymere (black).

 
During restoration we discovered two of the six windows weren't aligned properly (port and starboard), so now we'll insert a solid mahogany piece into the cockpit's plank so we can move the window opening slightly to the right - more pictures will follow.

Pimping a polyester hatch

This customer's electric river-launch needed a facelift so we provided a beautiful teak/paduk custom hatch, with a stainless steel inlay of the owner's logo, symbolizing his house amidst the meandering river.
