The first thing that I would suggest is to look at designs that call for solid timber as opposed to plywood construction. In my experience, traditional construction can be just as approachable as modern construction i.e: plywood/epoxy. Designs by HarryBryan are well worth considering and he is very approachable should you need some guidance. Secondly, once you have chosen a design, I would build a small tender using the same construction technique. This will give you some valuable experience and see
some lofting and model making to get the ball rolling. You'll have about a year to kill before that wood is ready to use anyway.
Ok so I'm purchasing a portable saw mill and the island where I live I
have an unlimited supply of mature southern pine,red/white oak, cherry,
sweet gum and maybe some cypress.
I want to build a 19-23' pilot house boat.
Most plans online I've looked at call for a lot of CNC marine plywood.
I'm trying to leverage the free stuff i have vs a bunch of stuff i have
I've been looking at cold molding, clinker, carvel, stick and glue, etc.
I'm a novice to learning curve is a factor and I'm not appose to mixing
in fiberglass or metal if it can simplify and speed things up without
adding to much to cost.
