How to build a boat: The importance of a good foundation


To start well,
you need a good foundation for the boat, and this structure that you can
see on the floor, this grey structure, it gives you the level of the boat. Everything’s that’s going to be built
on the boat is going to be built on top of this. So you have to make it very level
on both sides, and the distance between the bars
must be exactly the same, ’cause everything will be based
on this structure. So after setting this structure, you start with
what are called the bulkheads. They are the divisions
inside the boat. And they give you
something like the skeleton of the boat, and you’re going to build the boat
on top of this skeleton. So setting the precise distance
on these ribs or these bulkheads, it’s really important. And then you set the panels that turn into the hull of the boat. So if you set all the measurements right
on your base, everything that comes after
will be precise, will be fine, in terms of size and distance
and things. So that’s where you start,
with a good foundation.
