How to Build the TotalBoat Work Skiff – Episode 7

Finally Louis Sauzedde, the master shipwright, is ready to put some planks along the sides of a single form to confirm that he really is building a work skiff. The 2 side planks alone, once joined to the bow stem and the newly constructed transom, show the form of the boat coming together and it is going to be a head turner, once completed. Check out this 7th video in the series and soak in Lou’s years of experience and confidence, that is allowing him to build this skiff without multiple forms and confusing plans.
