Sharpie method: Well adapted to the building of small boats, very easy and fast.
Basket mold: For short production runs of small boats: ideal for professional building of small boats
Traditional building: Around molds on strong backs: for those who learned boat building the traditional way . . .
Self Aligning Jig System: Fast power boats require a straight running bottom and should be build on a jig. Our system makes it easier with self-aligning stringers and frames.
Baseline Building: Planking around molds, molds are on deck or cockpit sole. Very fast and easy but requires a boat designed for that method. Used for the Phantoms and OD16.
Basket mold for one-off building of larger hull: Build a large hull without complicated set up. Requires accurately developed panels drawings.
Step 2: The Basket Mold
Step 3: The Jig Method
Step 4: Self Aligning Jig System
Molds (=frames) and stringers interlock and automatically correct possible alignment mistakes. Very little bracing or leveling is required and the assembly progresses very fast.
