Alexgri: Well you spent more in beer than in wood :)
Frank Russell: Did they remember to cut the hole for the centerboard? oops!!
Gohot229: Great work guys. artwork really...
herrseppl: you did not celebrate when it was finished? but when its hardly
done....wheres the logic?
Rudy Chadwick-Smith: @jewnatzi12 lovely job
Gustavo Salinas: Very nice video and beautifull boat! Congratulations!
Tom Trevessey: @SuperRudy94 the quality of ply decks now are really good 1mm thick
mahogany veneer which matches the transom, ceder strip deck, well i haven't
seen it done tbh i can imagine it being very hard to get right gaps etc,
near the stem would also be tricky with the overall camber of the deck, ply
looks fanatic once finished! no one really strip planks a deck. teak or
mahogany 50mm strips on the other hand fitted tightly to the king plank
would also look great!
Tom Trevessey: @chickenpayback tbh staples are really ugly if its bright finished, tape is
a far neater way of construction.

coffeefish: No keel, of any kind?
nemo227: Beautiful! Beautiful! Beautiful! Gorgeous! Everyone (almost) has had dreams
of building a boat. Too few of us actually do it. Thank you for sharing
your project with the rest of us.
Tweezer Sailing: TweezerD was designed by Rod Mincher. The Gen2 Classic Moths such as
TweezerD are very tippy and there are better Classic Moth designs out there
for the average sailor (if you are a competent Laser or Sunfish racer, a
Mistral or TweezerD design is OK, if not look at other designs such as a
Mint, a Titan or a Shelly). The foredeck is thinner ply to reduce weight in
the bow. The aft deck is thicker since the skipper sits on it occasionally
when the wind is up and the Moth is planing downwind.
Randy Hoffmann: That's a lot of wood-crafting to just cover it with Figerglass. But you do
Steves Projects: Great going enjoyed the video
michaelwindsurfer54 .: wheres the center board? or it doesn't need one?
porpoisefathom: hey since its composite can i rip 1/4 thick strips from planks of stock
spruce ?..cuz the whole thing is gonna be encased anyway the moisture
content shouldnt be an issue?..also i wanted to build more of a v shape(to
help with ease of planing the sailboat hull) rather than a round bilge, is
strip plank suitable for that?
Will Rupert: amazing
Alexandra Mamede: Wonderful work!! Could you please tell me whats the type of glue you use?
Thanks a lot. Never stop to make them!
bubblerings: Hi. That's beautiful!... Kayak sites show clamping each strip...eeeek! I
didn't see clamping. Do you just nail the strips to the molds w/ a brad gun?
5937824: Beautiful boat. Did you haved to cut any angles to get the strips to fit
together properly ? Was thier any steam bending involved ? I was thinking
of useing the same hull building technique to build a canoe.
Bob Linton: Im building a wood strip sailboat...Love your boat! I like how the side
seats are made of wood strips. Congrats! thanks for the insperation!
njander: Very nice looking boat! Where did you get the plans for it? I sailed scows
on Lake Mendota - Madison, Wisconsin years ago and am thinking your design
might be fun to sail and build. I'd appreciate any info you could pass on
mike s creech: GREAT JOB
Tweezer Sailing: Woodstrip construction is a composite construction where the wood strips
form the core and glass skins provide the strength. Woodstrips without the
glass skins would not even be close on the structural strength of a
glass/wood/glass layup. I have heard of people leaving out the glass skins
and it has been as disaster.
Hei Shun Liu: Where did you get the boat plans??
blacknight15029: where did yu get the plans for the boat?
Rudy Chadwick-Smith: amazing!
bubblerings: Sure beats weeks of clamping daily! -Thanks.
lgcharmedlife: very nice!
finnguy693: Nice looking Moth guys!
1956Simbo: Lovely work and music.Well done.
Miguel Dromedari: idolos!!! les quedo hermoso!!! los felicito!!"
Zoklor: That is a laborious way to make a boat, but the cosmetics of it are surely
haastingschap: where did you get the plans?
keith k: WOW!!!! You guys are amazing. GREAT JOB!!
porpoisefathom: how much difference in wieght is there between core-cell and strip plank ??
and also how would you do a longer version of this?..say 32 ft?..would you
have to scarph all the pieces?
Tweezer Sailing: You can't use brads. Too hard to remove when you lift the shell off the
molds. We used staples, just a manual Arrow staple gun. For each strip we
used 9/16 inch staples into each mold station and 2 X 1/4 inch staples
between each station to pull the strips together. Lots of staples to pull
but we had good luck with the staple remover from office supply store
"Staples" (no pun intended). Kayak strip builders who desire perfection
have developed a fastener free method of attaching strips.
MrLeonard55: Very nice work.
Tom Trevessey: @chickenpayback considering i glue up with pva!! if i didnt glass :O :D
herrseppl: i plaing make my own boat. i got already a model, i made it 100% myself, an
i wana make a real one wich is 2meters long. very short for a boat, this
boat can load up max to 300kg, the boat itself will just weight 31kg i
desidet make it just 2meters because: its not 2 heavy it dont sink if i sit
on it, it is 0.7meters on the widest spot.
SuperSarbs: Stunning. Thanks.
marcosrestaurador: muito legal seu barco a vela!
misshaunted11: hi i was wondering for the whole thing, how much did it cost?
Graeme w: Beautiful :questions How much beer does it take to build a great boat like
that? Is a wooden boat covered with fiberglass still a wooden boat? could
you not just have varnished her? What is the transome made from ? why is
the fore bulk head thinner than the rear? More power to your elbow ,
rodnisimo: Good goin! She's beautiful.
michelssanto1: Nice video, congratulations. Just a detail, the song "Wave" is the
Brazilian maestro Antonio Carlos Jobim or simply Tom Jobim.
Renato Gusman: bom trabalho farei uma canadense
toolinmaine: I think this boat is very pretty. I like the hull and seat tanks very much.
I am not trying to be mean or degrading when i say this, however, but i
think the plywood was a mistake. It seems as though it was a "quick way
out" even though it looks like it has complex curves. Wood strips would
have been much more handsome. Did the decks look as you expected? I am sure
the video doesn't do the boat justice.
