Yankee Tender Scale Model Kit

Product Description
$59.95
Maximum quantity available reached.

This is our most popular kit. Based on the full-sized 12'4" flat-bottomed skiff, this model is actually enjoyable to build and beautiful to display.

Utilizing two basic construction methods, lapstrake planking for the sides and cross-planking for the bottom, building this model will add considerably to your boatbuilding knowledge and experience.

Consider this is a building course in a box. It's akin to coming home from the lumber yard with wood planed to thickness, but not pre-cut. You roll out the plans, read over the instructions a few times to start the build process in your head, and have at it.


Scale: 1 1/2"= 1'

If you'd like a better understanding of just what is involved, view the 8 pages manual by clicking: INSTRUCTIONS. There are photos of two built models, which, if you look closely, you'll see the builders have done some slight modifications.

Here is a building tip for the cutting the planking:
When you cut out the side planking (as opposed to the bottom planking) you should be getting both garboard planks from 1 piece of 3/64" x 2" x 24" Basswood. Trace out the first gar board plank with the edge of the pattern as close to the edge of the wood as possible. Just flip the gar board pattern and nest it to the first when you are tracing the second plank.

You should also do the same with the sheer plank using the other 3/64" x 2" x 24" piece. The 4 pieces of the 3/64" x 1" x 24" would be for planks 1 and 2 of each side.

Also, we now include 6 pieces of 3/64" x 3/4" x 24" for the bottom's cross planking (instead of 4 pieces, per the instructions) just to make it easier.

You may notice that the plans show the mold support blocks aft of some molds and the instructions show them forward of the molds. Does it matter? No. The important thing is to have the actual molds in the right place. 

Remember, sheet 1 is at full scale, so if you are thinking you need a pattern for a part (skeg, for example) you can scale right from the drawing.
