    Hi Goose,

    Western red cedar is very common out here in BC (we grow it). You should be able to find it at a good lumber yard or at a place that makes fencing. In Ontario, you may find eastern white cedar. That should work too. Check your yellow pages under LUMBER or FENCING

    The best grade is clear cedar, but if not available, regular fencing grade can be used. It comes in various sizes, eg lathing, and 1by3, 1by4 and in 6, 8 and 10 ft lengths.

    Pick over the stack looking for edges free from bark and as few knots as possible. Look for outer planks as they are less dense than heart wood. Warped planks are not much of an issue as you will be splitting it into narrow planks and they will bend quite easily.

    On the saw, I use a narrow kerf planer blade for very clean cuts.

    John

    Hi Goose,
    I discussed on the phone with Metivier Son and he confirmed that is sending often materials to Canada and this tends to confirm that there some difficulties to find various sorts of wood, others then the mentioned above, but as well generally employed by us modelers.

    Again this is the adress and site : http://metivier-modelisme.com/
    just in case "bois" means "wood".
    Metivier was telling me that the dispatch costs are around 22/25Ä and shipping time aroud 15 days to reach destination.
    Some time is faster. It happen to me to buy very often servo's material at : http://www.servocity.com/ - I never got problems.

    My supplier for : resin, glass/carbon cloths, carbon tubes, etc is : http://www.polyplancomposites.com/
    Also them can supply to abroad.

    Cheers
    Claudio

    Hi John...

    Thanks a lot for that. I'm off to another local lumber supplier after work tonight and hopefully pick something up.

    Cheers

    Hi Claudio...

    Thanks again. I'm not ignoring your suggestion and the Metivier site is excellent... I'm simply making a point

    If todays mission is unsuccessful, I will order from that site but I'm getting close.

    Cheers!

    Hi All,

    Heaps of rain here last couple of days with high humidity found this evening the paper templates are lifting off the shadows (spray adhesive) so thought before I lose the centre-line "if" paper templates fall off.

    Decided to glue-in the first frame support strips, here I used 7 x 3 mm Pine as thought it would be more stronger/stable than balsa in these humid conditions if they continue, donít worry Claudio I will be using balsa for the hull planking.

    Started with the side strips first and will do the keel strip last, reason
    ; so I can tap the shadows onto the centre-line below lay the keel strip later, the last check before planking. Also leave I will also glue the all 3 support strips onto number S0 last of all.

    Goose check that you bevel these S0 strips correctly, itís a tight fit.
    Tomorrow will do the gunnel support strips, then the final keel strip & then bevel the shadows ready for when the balsa to arrive on Friday.

    How did you go with your wood supplier today Goose ? hope to don't have to resort to Pine, bloody hard stuf to sand mate.

    Cheers K1

    Gidday K1...

    Looks good mate, thanks for the warning about shadow 0.

    I'm interested to know what to do with the s10 end of the chine strip.

    No joy on the cedar, last chance for Canada tonight after work or plan B is to order it from France via Claudio's connection.

    Keep it up mate.

    Goose

    PS: What wood did you use for your shadows?

    Goose and K1,

    you can glue a block of balsa between Frame 0 and and the Bow tip and stopping the planking at frame 0.
    The block is then shaped by sanding.

    Cheers
    Claudio

    Hiya Goose,

    I will cut the hull frame (side) support strip off at S09 as the keel strips and gunnels support strips go through to S12.

    Thanks Claudio about the solid balsa replacing the bow plate, I will do also.

    Matthias thanks for pics on Alex's new boat also ... just new carbon hull or is it change in design from his previous ETNZ ?

    Cheers K1
