Corsair 11

Post by esparver »

Fellow boatbuilders,

I am building the "corsair 11", I just started to draw the plans on plywood of this nice little boat. I like the "open stern" version.

I'm not in a hurry as I don't have much freetime and also is my first boatbuilding experience so don't expect spectacular progresses. :wink: My first milestone is to complete the hull.

Regards,

Jordi.

I'll do Shine.

I like this boat a lot. Although is small it would be very fun to sail (I used to sail a lot with a similar 11", cat design, and it was a pleasure!). What I can tell you is that's very fun to learn the S&G secrets... if I had only more freetime...

Regards,

Jordi.

A bit of my"building report":

All 9mm plywood pieces are cut: frames, transom, daggerboard and its case, skeg and rudder.

In the last two days I drew and cut the hull bottom and sides (in 5 mm plywood as I couldn’t find 6 mm) I’ll cut the deck at the end of the building process.

The next step is to assemble bottom and sides with a butt block and “stitch & glue” everything. This will be done at the end of august, I’ll be away a couple of weeks sailing in the Mediterranean Sea :D . I'll post pictures when I'm back.

BTW, I have a question: should I post this in the "Builder's sailing boat" or in the "Builder's small boat" forum?

Regards,

I think that qualifies as a small boat.

Well, this is done you can see the side and bottom panels glued, as well as the skeg, centreboard, rudder and its box (not shaped yet) in my buiding gallery.

I'm about to stitch all the hull together and post pictures of the process very soon.

Best regards,

PD: ChrisObee yes of course, but for me it's a BIG boat! :D

Olá Jordi! Como estás?

I am really looking forward to follow your Corsair building, but it seem there's some kind of problem with your link, though. It points to another builder's boat, "Larry's D5".

Saludos.

Next step is to measure diagonals and begin with the fillets: I will glue the hull with a bit of epoxi+filler and then remove the plastic ties, put tape outside and be ready for some serious filleting (first milestone will be acomplished then) :D

Hope you like the pics!

Hull is turned, diagonals measured and ready for filleting.

Right now I'm doing epoxy tabs to remove plastic ties and begin filleting. A couple of pictures:
