A note by a Nina Builder

Hi Pat,

 

I bought plans for Nina a couple of years ago and finally got her done. I attached a picture for you. Boat building lumber isn't readily available in this area. I used Douglas fir flooring for all the frames and stem and I found some nice looking plywood at our local home center. The sides are 1/4 plywood and 1/2 for the bottom. It's been a great learning experience with the lapstrake siding and rabbiting the stem. It's kind of fun working with chisels and hand tools. Hope to get it in the water real soon!
