Steam Bending and Installing Frames on the Arabella

Alix and Steve are building Arabella in their backyard and it’s no small task. They’re arguably at one of the most critical stages of their build, steam bending and installing frames, and like all the other tasks they take on, they have done serious research in advance.  Because this is such a monumental moment in the construction of Arabella, their Atkins ketch, Alix and Steve decided to get into the nitty-gritty about the whys and hows of their bent frame construction.

TotalBoat is proud to support these ambitious guys and a recent visit to their compound confirmed that these two are the real deal.
