Two more Yankee Duck Punts

This week I received some snaps of two more duck punts being built

this from Mac Craig whio lives not a million miles from New York

For the jigs I used 1/4″ ply with 1″ pine screwed to the edges. The second shot is my 16 year old son Alex making a cut for me. I’m using titebond III instead of epoxy wherever possible, its waterproof,  stronger then wood and requires no mixing. Epoxy and I don’t have a great track record. I will send more shots as things progress. When the punt is done, I hope to sail it on the Hudson and Wallkill rivers as well as the Rondout creek. All of these are less then a 15 minute drive from my home. If you look in the background of the snaps you can see that I am suffering from PNM, its well into the severe stage but as I live far off the road and my wife doesn’t complain, I think I’ll be OK.

Dylan,

 

You told me to take lots of ‘snaps’ so here they are.

 

The one week build evaporated when I took a full week to build the jig.

 

Using ⅜” pine ply. Best stuff avail locally.  

 

Am now cutting frames from ½” pine and will photo dry fit.

 

Work and family use a great deal of boat building time…LOL

 

Thanks,

 

Pete

    Nice! Excited to see more Punts being built, keep the updates coming. Who knows? If people here keep building them, we may have to have a “Duckpunt Regatta” someday! But, probably not…

    Good luck guys!

      the spread of the happiness from the wonderfully weird experience of punting gives me a lot of satisfaction

      build one this winter lads – it is the best fun an old bloke can have on his back
