Photos from Wooden Boat Alley at the 2015 Vancouver International Boat Show:

Wooden Boat Society Volunteers pick up the Bevin's Skiff at Britannia Heritage Shipyards for delivery to Wooden Boat Alley at B.C. Place Stadium.

 

The Bevin's Skiff loaded and ready to go. The Bevin's Skiff is an 11' 8" long, 4'4" wide row boat. She is easily car-topped. This is the boat that Families build at Family Boat Building at the Vancouver Wooden Boat Festival.

 

Delivering Oars to Wooden Boat Alley. The Bevin's Skiff oars are the green 7' ones in the boat. The varnished pair of 7 footers are one of the prizes in our contest. The main prize is a Whiskey Jack Chaser made by Whiskey Jack Paddles.  The Winner of the paddle is Nadine Hodgson of Victoria, BC. Congradulations!

Cedar Strip-Planking

 

Orca Canoe and Kayak's Cedar Strip-Planking.

 

The bead and cove cedar strips are joined together on molds secured to a strong-back.

 

This is a model strong-back with molds and a few strips attached to demonstrate technique.

 

Rod brought a half-built kayak to show guests to Wooden Boat Alley how cedar strip-planking is done.

Plywood Construction:

 

The Bevin's Skiff uses Plywood construction to make an 11'8" by 4'4" wide flat iron skiff. Families build these skiffs during the Vancouver Wooden Boat Festival. They start on the first day of the festival and launch their completed boats at 2pm on the last day.
