      First time builder here. Building the Herreshoff Dinghy, 11 1/2 foot, lapstrake. I'm currently working on lining off the boat. To do this I used the plank width ratios and diminishing method specified in Barry Thomas' "Building the Herreshoff Dinghy" (basically the same diminishing method in Rossel's "Building Small Boats").

      I am hours into building a Herreshoff yacht tender that I started in July and I'm finally starting a building thread. You may have seen me around here asking one off questions, but it's high time I shared a bit more. Plus, at this point I have too many questions to not get over my intimidation of posting a building thread here. Let's get started.   The only info I have on Herreshoff's method are the "How-to-books" for the Haven and Herreshoff Dinghy. Neither of which, even mention this slope. Although, you can see it in Joel's White's construction plan for the Haven 12 1/2.

    L. (Lewis) Francis Herreshoff (Novem – December ), was a boat designer, naval architect, editor and author of books and magazine articles. Early in his career he worked for the Herreshoff Manufacturing and for naval architect Starling : Novem , Bristol, Rhode Island.   Welcome to the forum. The H is an ambitious first project. There are other versions of this boat, some with modernized build methods. You must remember she was first built well over a century ago, so all the engineering, methods and materials are of that era.
