The Sheer Clamp | Temptress 1/4 Scale Boat Build Part 21

In this video we take a look at the sheer clamp. One of the more complicated, longitudinal timbers that run through the boat. We take a look at the CAD model to see how this timber evolves throughout the boat before making a tool to mark out the notches for its position. We then look at how the timber might be sized and laminated in order to form the curves and twists that it needs to take on.

In the next video I will move on to the topside batten installation and gluing of the sheer clamp.

I am currently hoping to begin building enough revenue from my videos and online products so that I can begin building a full size version of Temptress. If you would like to help make that happen then here are a few ways that you can support the channel, project and help to get a build in progress.

Buy yourself a set of Temptress model or full size plans if you’d like to build one:

– About the Project –
In this series I am building a 6′ model version of our new boat design Temptress. The reason for building the boat in that size is so that I can show the process, exactly the same as it will be for the full size boat with everything scaled down. It will offer a full tutorial on how to build the boat, be a test run for myself and also give me a demo model that I can take to boat shows.

Plans are available to buy for both the full size boat and a simplified, slot together, plywood scale model plan set. Note that in this video series I am working from the full size boat plans. For details on the scale model plan set, take a look at this video:
