In this presentation, Bob Emser will discuss why the Haven 12 1/2 is one of the best choices for beginning boat builders and seasoned builders alike - small enough to tackle yet complicated enough to challenge even an experienced boat builder. From casting a lead keel, steam bending frames and spiling planking, the Haven has it all. Emser will share the Haven’s lineage from the Herreshoff 12 1/2 footer to Joel White’s Haven 12 1/2 to John Brooks’s Some Sound and explain the differences in the 3 boats. Participants will also learn some of the processes and challenges and steps to simplify these for the first-time builder, as well as the different planking choices available.
