Installing The Topside Battens | Temptress 1/4 Scale Boat Build Part 24

In this video I am installing the topside battens. We begin by marking out their position as placed in the previous video. Then I am cutting the notches to set them into the frames and looking at how this can allow us to begin fairing the hull as we go.

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.

– 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:
