Video on Wooden Boat Manufacturing

Postby Guest » Fri Mar 02, 2012 8:21 am

Here is a vintage video providing an overview of the manufacturing process for the Firefly dinghy in the UK. This is another Uffa Fox design and a very similar boat to the Albacore. I would imagine the manufacturing process to be the same as for the majority of our wooden Albacores. The wood used (Agba, a species of mahogany) is what my boat (Young 5009) is made of.

Have a look ...

That is great video... just the way the Fairey Marine Albacores and most woodies were built up to the late 1970's
