Cruising With Godfrey/56' Wooden Sailboat

Victoria, BC - Today we went out to a secluded harbor and visited Godfrey's friend Cos. Cos is deeply into building, his current project a 58' long wooden sailboat. It's a galleass type sailboat, this one based on a 1926 design for a Danish North Sea vessel. Show below is the keel,  9" thick, 17" deep, and 44'-4" long, cut from one Douglas Fir. Also a couple of tools I like, one new, one old. The Prazi beam cutter attaches to circular saw and allows you to cut curves and odd shapes easily. Cos and I are on the same page when it comes to little planes. This the same model that I use more than any other plane, but this one was an antique, burnished by many carpenters' palms…

Hope we get to see the finished boat. It looks like it is going to be a very special one.
