Wooden Boatbuilding Sheets

Wooden Boatbuilding sheets translation into English

All my plan packages include a set of Wooden Boatbuilding sheets giving general instructions on subjects like epoxy systems use, making laminated frames, spilling the hull planking, traditional rigs, painting and varnishing… These “sheets” come from a book on wooden boat construction published in French some years ago. I do intend to have them translated into English, but this is a huge work and, up to now,  I did not find the time to do it. This winter, I have been very happy when an American customer, George Alheid, intending to build a Seil 18, send me a translation of these sheets.  He doesn’t speak French and used Google translation, and corrected the
sheets to make them readable. Up to now, I did not have the time to make my own correction. The document, as it is, is far from perfect, but will certainly be very valuable for other English speaking builders.
I deeply thank George for this volunteer work that he agrees to make available to all.
Of course, I still have in mind to publish fully updated sheets, and it will be easier.

    Merci beaucoup a M. Vivier et aussi a M. Alheid pour ce document. J’aime beaucoup les bateaux de M. Viviers. Le ne les ai jamais vu en personne, malheureusement, bais je les regarde bien souvent en ligne.
