We were asked to develop the plank shapes for a replica of a 4 oared Faering from some lines that had been taken off the boat some while back. The client was the husband of the Great Granddaughter of the owner who had the original built in 1892 for the sum of 70 Kroner (£3.10.0). The original is now in a museum and still in excellent condition, having been used by several generations for holidays and a few long expeditions. We have now taken the original lines and produced construction drawings for modern stitch and epoxy construction using plywood. The hull is a close resemblance of the original but we have given her a deeper keel to enhance her windward performance (the originals often used a dagger board) and a larger rig. The plank shapes are shown on the drawings along with frame shapes. A fascinating and very beautiful boat.
