      Zool,
      Just signed up. I am awash in projects and recently retired but waiting for that first FERS check from Uncle Sam. Also have to sell the TN house and have two other restore jobs to do, 1986 Islander and mostly life extension repairs on a 1988 Trophy CC. As soon ans the house sells I get to build the boat barn and start on my bay boat, a Spira Galveston. I look forward to following your build.
      Cheers!

          fisher,

          That's a stout looking garvey or dory, and should make a great bay boat....start a thread here when you get to it..looks like an interesting build.

          Welcome aboard

            So I got the plans yesterday, and spent some time studying them. As I suspected, they leave a little to be desired, mostly a few sheets of random sketches and notes, but lacking a legend sidebar..instead, they gave a work booklet, so you have to located the wood member on the sketch, find the notes labeling it somewhere on the sheet, then look up the dimensions in the booklet, fun stuff! lol....no lofting notes either, but overall, they appear workable. The templates are just as confusing. I have an old drafting table in the back of one of the barns, that im gonna dig out today to set the plans on, and begin to build the strongback today, along with some tasks on the 28, and of course the grass ...

            Ill update the thread later on, after I see what progress can be made.

                Yea Sam, I guess this is the fun part!...it does state in the booklet that boat building is a personal preference thing, and the plans should be used as a guide! lol...I already came up with changes, just want to get the hull angles as engineered, the inside and details will be my own

                  Update:

                  I did a little rearranging of the shop, to make room for the jig in the center, with the bow towards the door, so I can get the trailer under it after its done. I spread out the plans and got a better look at them, theyre not so bad, and referencing the booklet for sizes works fine. The "full size" templates are 1/2 dimensional, and they are stacked so you cant cut them out and trace, you need to use 2 sheets of carbon paper between the template sheet, and the plywood, and trace it, leaving one imprint on the ply, and another on the back side of the template sheet, then work off a center line. Shouldn't be a problem, cept I don't have big carbon paper lol...but I could make the jig.

                  This is the template sheet,



                  This is the plan sheet for the jig/strongback.




                  and the drafting table I dug out of the barn, just a place to keep the plans clean.

                    I scrounged around for 2x lumber, and found enough for the jig.



                    I scabbed the main rails to 10', but I will replace them with full 2x4x10, nice straight ones.



                    The transom legs needed a 14 deg cut ( 3 in 12)



                    The stem and temp frames, need the templates, so that's it for now.

                          Welcome aboard mr300,

                          I didn't really get any boat work done this weekend, not only did I have to mow all the lawn, but I had to fix the mower 1st

                          I did manage to pick up a sheet of 3/4 ply for the temp frames and breasthook, and some graphite paper and poster board. I decided to trace the templates to poster board, then cut and lay them out on the ply, so I can rearrange it till it all fits ( the plans say it should only require 1 sheet, but that's gonna be tight and require some pre-thought lol. Also picked up 2 new 2x4x10's for the top braces...

                          The plans also state I can use exterior ply for the skin, since im glassing it, so I looked thru HD and found some 1/4 bcx sanded pine, for 30 a sheet, as opposed to 50 for the douglass fir. and 75 for the okoume. I still may have to make the long trip for the white oak, but im looking into some cedar plank that lowes has here, but it may need to be scarfed to length if I use it...that will save a lot of time and money if I can use them...

                            Update:



                            I took some time today to work on the stem and breast hook, and try the template to construction method I plan to use. It worked out fairly well with no issues.

                            For the stem, I just put the graphite paper between the pan and wood, and traced the outline.




                            I transposed the template to a fir board and cut it out with a jig saw

                              After it was cut, it was aligned and the spec height was set. the nose was specked at an an initial 45 deg bevel, which will be faired later.



                              I then adjusted the height at 5" from t level line.
