Episode 8 & 9
Original air date: February 26, 1995
A visit to the Center for Wooden Boats in Seattle, Washington launches this challenging and exciting project which is modeled after a “class boat” known as the “Clancy.” Back at the workshop, Norm builds the lightweight boat from scratch using 3′ x 10′ lengths of marine veneer mahogany plywood and an epoxy and fiberglass system to make the craft watertight. With the final coat of epoxy sanded and the last strokes of paint and waterproof finish applied, host Norm puts the SS New Yankee 1 and 2 to the test! Norm and This Old House host, Steve Thomas, take the workshop-built Clancy boats for a sail.
