MELONSEED 13'4" - Built by Etienne Muller 2020 - Designed by Selway Fisher

The coaming gives a small boat a lot of its character. Builders do a lot of head scratching to find the line between ease of installation and elegance. Steaming heavier planks is one option used for obtaining curves, but since this boat is made up of strips anyway I am much more inclined to laminate thinner planks. Before I laminate I use a heat gun to obtain most the bend I require in the plank.
