Re: Strip: Bjorn Thomasson HUNTER project start

Sorry Bjorn, if I gave the impression that the plans were not enough. As I said in a previous post, they are accurate and fine.

I don't need an instruction manual, but the one on your site also seems fine.

Regarding the stems, I just eyeballed the drawing and went for it, slight curve, and they are working out fine.

I am not actually going to leave the stems in. I have taped them and will use as small a fillet as possible. I am trying to keep the weight down on this one.

At this point I am just turning the corner of the chine (eight strips each side so far) and the shape has been very accommodating. Probably the easiest hull I have built so far regarding the very minimal bending and twisting involved in the planking.

Lovely looking shape, I will be posting photos again as soon as I have fully passed the chine, two more days at the current rate, too much else going on at the moment.

I will be putting in a skeg. I didn't used to do it, but as I get older I get lazier, especially on long quartering offwind crossings. This is how I build my skegs:

I realise that the Black Pearl has probably eclipsed the Hunter to a large degree, being the full on sexy looking ultra low profile Greenlander that she is, but I am guessing that this project is going to generate some added interest in this boat. I will be doing the usual photo log of the project. I took a long time pondering what I was going to build this time, and I almost asked you to scale a BP for me, but I kept being attracted back to the drawings of the Hunter, so I thought, "Let's just go with instinct." So far, the further the project develops, the happier I am.

My intention at the moment is to use a smallish cockpit. I have gone with the higher deck profile on the plans.

I am still pondering on what to do with the hatches. I don't like the look of the rubberised ones, but it is a low boat. I still have time to consider. We will see if beauty triumphs over expedience.

Thanks for the ride so far.

Etienne.
