Step 16: The Compulsive Iceberg Obsession

Picture of The Compulsive Iceberg Obsession

I had never built a wooden boat before, but I'm totally fine with proportions.

Bow and stern, where?

In fact, the question was more simple: 'bow, where?!'

'Get the most solid part of the log in your bow' my inner voice said.

'You'll probably meet some icebergs at sea' the voice continued.

Getting that part of the boat as solid as possible didn't interfere with sailor logic, to my opinion. So I followed my inner voice and started drawing lines. A big V at the bow, a smaller at the stern - I didn't want the boat to be symmetric. So I went for a speedbow and a more robust stern.
