Dagger cases, Daggerboards

Still working on the daggers and cases

Posted by Paul

A friend of mine told me it took him 3 months to make his daggers and cases, I started on 9 March so if I can finish them in the next 2 weeks I will have cut a third from the time it took him. The reason I mention this is I consider that I am a slow builder, but it just goes to show that some people find some tasks easier than others or some methods or material are easier than others. In the end things take as long as they take and boats get launched when their owners are ready. This month I hope to get the daggers and cases finished, and the keelsons glued into the bows, and the inside of the inside bow planked panels glassed on the inside all in readiness to glue the lids on next month.
