Re: 15 Whaler Super Sport Project

I am beginning to think you are really a cabinet maker who bought a boat. :-) Hi Jim, I'm actually in the medical field and after a day in the office I look forward to coming home and working on projects. I've been doing this type of thing for years. I really enjoy taking something that needs work ...

Re: Sapele and Mahogany Lumber Source, Uses

There are many grades of mahogany or species if you prefer to call them that. I went with Sipo at roughly 7.35/bf all placed and jointed.

Re: 15 Whaler Super Sport Project

Bought the remaining wood and prepped it for glue. Also planed and sanded the seats and put a nice radius on the edges. https://i.imgur.com/tzGIWr2b.jpg https://i.imgur.com/6zHHjStb.jpg https://i.imgur.com/LS4R3fAb.jpg https://i.imgur.com/w3wCMUSb.jpg https://i.imgur.com/LF9GMhkb.jpg https://i.imgur...

Re: 15 Whaler Super Sport Project

Visited three lumber yards last week that carried exotic woods, and the first two were disappointing. A 50-mile ride to NH was worth the time and gas. This place has everything and I mean everything. This is just one of the wood sheds. https://i.imgur.com/EupcOjlb.jpg Met the owners daughter and tol...

Re: 15 Whaler Super Sport Project

Headed to the place I purchased mahogany from when I did the 13' Whaler project and the widths and lengths they had were not ideal and would have produced lots of waste. It was fun going through their inventory though. 4" thick teak beams. [:0] https://i.imgur.com/Vw41M0X.jpg Mahogany boards ov...

Re: 15 Whaler Super Sport Project

15 Whaler Super Sport Project - Baystar Steering

Every once in a while I find some down time and start playing with the CraigsList App on my phone which usually ends with a new project. Several weeks ago I was doing just that and came across a 15' Whaler that was a steal of a price. I contacted the seller ASAP and sent a PayPal deposit within 5 mi...
