Punt for a Catbird 16′ dayboat

Here’s the latest from Roeboats boat shop. It’s another Karl Stambaugh designed boat for a repeat client. It’s actually a punt for the Catbird 16 I built some time ago.

Centre frame and two sides of 7' punt

The sides are first attached to the centre frame with glue and screws. The rest of the boat will use liquid joinery or epoy stitch and glue.

Then the transom is stitched on, I used zip/cable ties as there isn’t much pressure here.

Then the bow is stitched on and with a little bit of jiggling and reinforcing the centre frame she’s ready  for the epoxy fillets.

Here’s another view from the bow.You’ll have to excuse the mess as the the pile of stuff inside the door is off to the recycling so has to be kept dry.

And here she is with the fillets and two layers of glass. I did it all in one go so it was pretty quick. Hopefully the bottom will go on as easy. It’s going to be9mm ply so it’ll probably need a bit of persuasion.

If your interested in having your own boat custom built whether large or small why not give me a ring +353 (0)28 38973 or +353 (0)86 158 69 37. I’d be delighted to discuss your project.
