Anyone Currently Building The Haven

Shout out to see if anyone else is building the Haven. I wouldn't mind sending pictures and videos of my build if there is anyone reading the forum.

I've just recently started my build.   Got the molds done.  Transom in progress; I had the mahogany.  Next (for me) is the stem and stern knee.  Haven't gotten around to sending progress pictures to the Moderator; plenty of good mold pictures out there already.  I do check the forum from time to time, just not daily.  Be nice to see someone else here.

Glad to see another builder out there. Iím drafting a post on my keel pouring experiences and will post it shortly with some pictures. Iím thought Iíd start with the hardest things first. A friend gave me the molds but I donít want to begin the hull till everything else is ready as it will take up a lot of room.
Right now Iím carving out the tiller. Another difficult project. Thereís a great video on complex curves at offcenterharbor.com. This is a great site and well worth $40 a year.

 

Entries from the old Forum have been compiled into a "Variations From Plans" document which you can
download and print out as a Word document HERE.

Or you can view it as a web page at HERE

It is by no means complete. Send me an email or post here additional items which should be included in this document and it will be updated periodically. This document will allow new builders to benefit from our learning experiences and save them some grief!
