A little wood work

Posted by Bryan on Wednesday, June 12, 2013, In : Galley 
I really liked the idea that S/V Real Life had, another Whitby 42.  So using scrap wood and some new pieces of scrap teak from other work we put this together.  Came out pretty good.  Should be very piratical.

Hard to tell from the picture, there is a lip on the front to keep things from sliding out.

Please feel free to contact me! I grew up on the waters of the Chesapeake sailing and fishing. I was paid to work, sail, race, and sometimes live on a 51' Hinkley (they didn't really need to pay me but they offered!). I am a high school science teacher who likes to learn by doing. Used to teach at "The Sound School" in New Haven Ct. Check it out, the most amazing on- the- water school there is. I have rebuilt smaller boats from scratch, but nothing on this scale. This is an adventure. All help is greatly appreciated.
