Sea Dreamer Project: Installing Plywood Bulkheads

TotalBoat Ambassador, Scott Smith, is among our squad of backyard boatbuilders who are making great progress on their wooden boat builds. Scott has poured all of his time and energy into getting the George Buehler designed Diesel Duck trawler to this point, and he’s not stopping now! Using a boatload of Thixo and TotalBoat Traditional 5:1 Epoxy Resin, Scott is taking on the build of his massive dreamboat with the hopes of inspiring others to do the same through his videos. This is an important stage in Scott’s build as he considers all the systems and considerations he must make for where engines, pipes, tanks and all the important things will go in the near future.  Enjoy.

  1. I have always enjoyed woodworking and have restored several houses.
    I am the owner of a 1986 V20 Wellcraft that I have been doing restoration work on for several years and started a web (V-20 Wellcraft owners past and present) that is pretty much exclusive to those folks who are owners of these wonderful boats. We share information on “how to” tackle this or that project. All fun.
    It is amazing what you are doing. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I’m sure you mentioned this before but what is the diameter of your plywood that you’re using for the bulkhead? Did you consider using glassing the plywood or do you think that is just overkill?
