Shelf plank construction is a technique the Kishi Boat Works brought to Canada back in the early 1900's. The wood boat is built in a frame, a mold kinda. The planks are bent and pounded onto the frame as the boat sits on its keel. They lay in the "planks" nail them into the "mold". Then they lay in the next plank and saw between the next plank for a perfect match of the joint. They then clamp the top plank to the bottom plank and nail through that plank to the mold the frame. A lot like a puzzle in how the planks are fitted. After all the planks are fitted they pound in the bent frames, the stringers, the water tight bulk heads to separate the compartments. Then add in the stringers etc. Kinda a quick description.


The Kishi Family built in there words a " Tight Boat" they never re fastened, or re-caulked any of there boats. There is just no caulk "kinda". Fastened for strength from the inside. Built like a puzzle "kinda".


I am making this out to be better that in it is but in all reality Invader is not built in any way shape or form like a conventional North American build. She is wood and will rot but man she is stiff , and no want for a conventional fastening, re caulk. Not even close!

Keep her dry from above, the rain, and I bet she will live long after I.

The Rig ended up going for scrap , I just ran out of time so cut it apart and cot my 350.00 bucks. Ya cryin yet cause I did with every cut on that rig. Is what it is gotta move on.


The swim platform is project no 5 no wait project no 75, no wait project no 250. When I built the aft cabin back in 2001? the side of the hold top looked perfecttttt for use as a short term swim platform. Using the parts that came off the boat while doing the aft cabin. So a couple of hinges from the hold hatch , a quick cut down a side and wa la the platform is born. Now 15 years later it really is time to "move"on.


Just funny stuff IMO

Thanks for the vote of confidence. The builders the Kishi Brothers just knew how to build a boat, a trade passed down through generations of boat building. They be often asked why they never expanded and hired folk to help to increase production. They always said they where builders not teachers or managers. You lined up to have one built. What a different time!

I hope , invader no 1 lives a long cared for life. She holds no value in todays world of cash is king yet has always , always , provided comfort, safety, warmth, security, a dry home and FREEDOM !
