“Lofting” provides a full size pattern of a two dimensional plan. The bow and stern sections were drawn in full scale to ensure
all angles and views met properly.
Traditionally, the fi rst section of a new boat laid is the keel. Gundalows do not have a keel (single central
timber at the bottom of the boat), so the fi rst section laid is the planking and fl oor timbers in the fl at center section of the boat. Following lofting, the curved bow and stern framing is cut and assembled along with side frames.
Trunnels “tree nails” connect wood parts in the gundalow much like pegs are used in post-and-beam
construction. Thousands of trunnels were used in traditional gundalow construction. We also use hand-cut bronze fasteners for longevity and strength.
The sheathing that wraps the sides and the bottom of the gundalow are called planks. Long
continuous timbers are set in a steam box to make them fl exible and then are bent to fi t the curvature of the boat frames.
The shear clamp, deck beams, and deck framing and
blocking are installed once the planking is completed. The deck is caulked to insure water tightness.
Thousands of feet of white cotton caulking and oakum will be driven into the gaps
between the planks to create a water tight seal.
Once the decking is in place, the house,
hatches, deck boxes, rails, rudder and stump mast are installed. Our local blacksmith fabricated and installed sweep locks, stanchions for life lines, the yard band and the windlass.
The entire boat is oiled and painted to protect it from the
water, air and sun. Oiling begins as soon as timbers are secured into place.
Sea trials and adjustments are
completed once the gundalow leaves the shipyard and is launched at Prescott Park. Small fi nal repairs, fi nish work and adjustments are made after it is in the water —then it will be ready for the fi rst public sails!
