Woodies 1920 Jersey Sea Skiff 1/6th scale

Hello All! This is my first Build Log on this forum as well as my first build in over 30 years (and my first "scratch" build if building from a plan qualifies) First a little history, I ordered these plans after seeing a article in SSM back in High School (about 1980) but never got around to building the model and ended up loosing the plans in a move to AZ shortly after graduation.

After searching the internet every now and then hoping to find a set again I was lucky enough to run across John Wright’s (Gravman) post of his model. I contacted him thru this site and he was kind enough to get me a set of the plans thru a buddy of his in Australia (unfortunately his set was destroyed when IKE flooded his home). So after emailing him updates and photos he talked me into starting a build thread here!

So here goes!

Steven

Thanks for the link! Some great boats there. It's given me the idea of possibly incorperating a sail mast on this skiff!
