This is my new job...

Hi guys...

I always want to building 3 things in my life...

1) To build a wooden tiny house for myself....
I did do it 2 years ago...
You can read my story here...

https://www.woodworkingtalk.com/f13/...-house-201010/

2) To build a wooden sail boat ...
I will do it in next 10 years...

3) To build a wooden real car...
I will do it in next 20 years

Next target TO BUILD A WOODEN SAIL BOAT...

I have never build a wooden sail boat before... How can i do that ??? I have to work near wooden boat builder master... I can learn somethings than him... but There is not any a wooden boat builder master in IZMIR... They are living in TRABZON , ORDU or SAMSUN... it is too far cities from me...

Anyway I find a job in the fiberglass boat factory... I am a student but I can work part time here... I am working woodworking in this factory... I am learning too much about to build a boat here .. my job is really very hard and too difficult...


We are using Teak wood for boat s hardware... Teak wood is really very expensive....
We are apply teak oil on it...

I have a question. Why does every boat in Turkey show a Turkish flag? I mean EVERY BOAT, EVERYWHERE. Even little boats that can never go to sea, and everybody knows they are already in Turkey.
Is it the law?

I had built 3 wooden boats in my life. My plans were purchased through https://www.glen-l.com/. Their plans are excellent and the patterns are full size. Their customer service is fantastic, they will help you over the phone if necessary.
Their plans are for wooden, fiberglass and steel boats - pick your choice. You can view their boat plans on line with all the specs. If you build the wooden boat and fiberglass the hull, you will have a nice boat. They also have a good book on building wooden boats.

It will take a while and you will need some covered space to do it in.

BTW, what do they use the pine and red oak for on a boat?

I have never used pine or red oak on any of my boats. Not the ones I built nor the manufactured ones I bought. Pine tends to rot fairly easily when wet and even if you put a finish on red oak, somehow water still get under the surface, and the red oak will turn black and there is no way I know of to get rid of it at that stage.

My partner and I have lived on boats for about 25 years. Started on really small sailboats and slowly graduated up in size. My last boat was a 36' cabin cruiser and we traveled the inland rivers and waterways for almost 5 years. It was a great experience with lots of stories. The we decided to sell the boat and buy an RV (recreational vehicle, camper, caravan) about 2 years ago and been traveling on it around the USA. I miss my boats.

BTW, if you decide to build a boat from plans from Glen-L, you wont need a whole lot of woodworking experience. They cover all the details and the plans are full size on the critical framework. Just know how to safely use the tools you have.

@faith michel

I just looked at your bottom signature "Second Chance & Second Live" I think "Second Chance" is a great name for your boat.

We are asking customers. .. Because teak wood is very expensive. ..you know pine is cheap price... sometimes some customers prefer pine wood. .because they have no enough budget for a boat...

Pictures of my 3rd sailboat.
All photos of previous boats were not digitized and lost from flooding in storage area during Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
This boat was also damaged in hurricane and the insurance company totaled it out. The damage was not serious but there were no more marinas to keep it in and no boatyards to fix it in. The area was totally devastated. I was working offshore at the time. Luckily, I had my laptop with me so I didnt lose any recent photos.

This is my last boat. The picture of outside the boat was taken by the broker when I was selling the boat. Twin engine 36' long. I made lots of mods and upgrades on this one. I bought the boat for $25K in I think 2012 and put around another $25K into it. Sold it and actually got more than I had into it. That;s the only time THAT ever happened.

Yes, and 2 winters we saw snow. One in very northern Alabama and the other was in Tennessee near the Great Smoky Mountains


Why did you choose RV for to live ??
Just wanted a change after 25 years on the boat. I figured that now is time to see the land between the water


Which ways so dangerous roadways or waterways ???
It's hard to compare the 2 because the dangers are quite different. The boat will have way more challenging moments. And when all hell brakes loose, in a boat, you just cant pull over to the side of the road. Quite often we were in areas where if something went really bad wrong, there was no cavalry to come save the day. The biggest single difference is when you drive the boat, most of the time it is relaxing and you are not really doing much but enjoying the trip. In a car, you just cant take your eyes off the road and your hands off the steering wheel. The best way to describe boating especially sailing is that you have long periods of boredom punctuated by short periods of sheer terror.

Which life is the best RV or boat ???
The boat life to me was far better than the RV. It's different, but quite better.

When will you back again rivers or oceans? ???
Right now, it is not in the plan but I believe it will happen in about 5 years. My old boating buddies know that if they need help on a long trip - call us.

Have you ever been to the ocean ???
Yes, the Gulf of Mexico, the Atlantic Ocean and the Carribbean Sea

Opss .. it was be very long..
Never too long
