The Lyle Hess Cutter I have been working sometimes on sometimes off, is finally planked. I think it looks good, even if I say so myself. I started fairing today and will put up more pictures as that progresses. . . . . . .

Posted by Steven Brouwer on February 16, 2008
Some progress! Two apprentices, Cedar and Brett, and myself have begun building this handsome 32 footer. Frames are up. Some bracing, some tweaking, some fairing with planking soon to follow. The frames are double sawn laminated balau attached to bronze floors with 3/8" bronze bolts. The planking will be yellow cedar. More photos and news as we go.
