    Steam bending for boat building with a clever non steam box idea

    This is a shipwright that i bet knows more than a few tricks about building boats.

    But his idea for sorting out steaming in place the gunwales of a dingy (could also be a canoe) is very clever take a look



    Guess process could be used for bent laminations as well, certainly looks like a clever solution.
    cheers

    That is a great idea, makes perfect sense actually.

    I think I will be on Youtube, listening and watching this guy. Might inspire me to finish the little sailboat that has been sitting in my garage for 8 years 2/3's finished. I wonder if it has dry rot yet??

    Pure genius!! I wish I had seen this before I put the gunwales on my canoe last fall. I love the guy's accent.
