There's a guy in the middle of Oklahoma building a massive Chinese JUNK in his back yard! I had to go and check it out! My name is Doug Jackson. I am the ambition and drive behind SV Seeker, but my success comes from knowing a lot of brilliant and skilled people who are drawn together around the sailboat Seeker. SV Seeker is not just a sailboat nor a yacht. SV Seeker is a work boat and a dream and a tool for making dreams come true. I’ve always wanted to do something grand and daring. Something that filled my passions, not just the hours of my day or a bank account. It started with building submarines, and with confidence it became building Seeker. When completed I will have every skill I need to keep her in shape, and she will have the strength to take us to the wonders and treasures of the world’s oceans. Seeker will cater to adventurers, explorers, oceanographers, divers, wreck hunters, marine biologists and archaeologist and we will do it free of charge whenever possible. If you want to be a part, then allow me to welcome you aboard. Our crew is forming now. You can join the volunteers that are helping to build Seeker. Sharpen your skills, pass your skills onto others, learn new skills, build friendships and earn your passage onto Seeker when she is plying the waters off some sandy beaches in search of sunken treasure.

UNESCO: List of Intangible Cultural Heritage in Need of Urgent Safeguarding - 2010 URL: http://www.unesco.org/culture/ich/USL/00321 Description: Takes note that China has nominated the watertight-bulkhead technology of Chinese junks for inscription on the List of Intangible Cultural Heritage in Need of Urgent Safeguarding, described as follows: Developed in South China's Fujian Province, the watertight-bulkhead technology of Chinese junks permits the construction of ocean-going vessels with watertight compartments. If one or two cabins are accidentally damaged in the course of navigation, seawater will not flood the other cabins and the vessel will remain afloat. The junks are made mainly of camphor, pine and fir timber, and assembled through use of traditional carpenters' tools. They are built by applying the key technologies of rabbet-jointing planks together and caulking the seams between the planks with ramie, lime and tung oil. The construction is directed by a master craftsman who oversees a large number of craftsmen, working in close coordination. Local communities participate by holding solemn ceremonies to pray for peace and safety during construction and before the launch of the completed vessel. The experience and working methods of watertight-bulkhead technology are transmitted orally from master to apprentices. However, the need for Chinese junks has decreased sharply as wooden vessels are replaced by steel-hulled ships, and today only three masters can claim full command of this technology. Associated building costs have also increased owing to a shortage in raw materials. As a result, transmission of this heritage is decreasing and transmitters are forced to seek alternative employment.

We are building a large steel sailboat in our front yard using an oragami method to construct the hull. Plans for the hull and a 1/12th scale model were obtained from Jack Carson. This is our attempt to translate the paper plans into a CNC cut 1/8th scale model. ...it's close, but the plans need some refining.

Revell 1/144 U-Boat VIIC/41 Atlantic Version. Starting mid-1943, 91 u-boots Type VII C/41 have been launched. By then, the conditions of the battle had totally changed. The wolfpack tactic achieved then seldom positive results against better protected convoys, especially with the introduction of air umbrellas. With the aim of a better defence when surfaced, the Type VII C/41 u-boots were fitted with a modified, larger bridge called large wintergarten (winter garden) armed with two 20 mm flakzwillings and one automatic 37 mm M42U flakkanone, which are reproduced with precision in the kit. A swivelling snorkel mast (also swivelling in the kit) for fresh air and fume exhaust, and four pressure boxes with 5-man floats were additional typical of these boats. The use of better steel sheets allowed the maximum depth to reach 250 metres. - Deck version with large winter garden - Detailed conning tower with railing - Detailed reproduction of the deck planking - Swivelling snorkel mast - Atlantic bow and modified upper middle hull section - Detailed 20 mm flakzwillings - Highly detailed 37 mm automatic flak gun - Reproduction of the 4 pressure boxes on the upper deck - Super detailed reproduction of the hull, with rivets and welding seams - Flood slits imitation - Detailed conning tower - Detailed rudder and propellers - Periscope to be installed in various positions, including up and down - Boathooks - Display stand Decals for U 292, U 318, U 998 and U 1004: - 1.

The video shows how we build large half hulls . Half hulls are built plank on bulkhead using tropical hard wood. Our master artisans use well dry miniatures planks to shape the hull. It is a real fine marquetry job . The painting by itself is also the key to have a glossy and nice finish of the hull. Please visit http://www.abordage.com/

This video records the building of the Zheng He Baochuan (or Treasure Ship). This is a project of the "Friends of Admiral Zheng He" special interest group formed to celebrate the 600th anniversary of Zheng He's voyages. The project received funding from the Singapore Tourism Board. The 1/30 model is based on the 2000 liao version, rather than the 44 zhang version. The design was the result of a number of international seminars held by Zheng He scholars in Nanjing, Beijing and Singapore, to determine the likely configuration of the ship. The model was built by Cen Family Boatyard,one of the last wooden junk makers in Zhoushan, China, and hence is relatively authentic in its technical details. The design is based on the configuration and dimension proposed by Mr Chung Chee Kit. The model was the main exhibit at the Inaugural Exhibition at the opening of the Singapore National Library building.

This model attempts to reconstruct the appearance of the 15th century vessel which became the Bakau shipwreck. It is based on a study of the Kakau wreck as well as two similar and near contemporary shipwrecks - Xiangshan(Zhejiang Province) and Penglai II(Shandong Province). A selection of artefacts that were discovered in the Bakau wreck. As early as the third century, Wan Chen wrote in his book "Strange Things of the South" that sails were set obliquely so that they could catch the wind and spill it. The surface of the sails could be reduced or increased according to the weather conditions. Such design enabled ships to sail while avoiding strong winds and mighty waves. In the case of the Bakau junk, relatively weak sail material was reinforced by sandwiching it between layers of stiff, tri-acial matting of split bamboo which folded like a fan when lowered.

Red Sail Chinese Junk Boats -These iconic red sail Chinese boats that are synonymous with ancient Chinese harbors are called Junk boats. -They are seagoing vessels that have existed since the 2nd century AD -They were used to carry cargo, travel across the ocean, for recreation and people lived on them. -Before cloth and canvas was used on junk sails, mats woven from grass and bamboo were used to make sails -Junks have what’s known as “battened sails which are sails with bamboo reinforcement throughout. This is something that was very much needed travelling throughout the waters around China which often presented powerful storms and typhoons. -Once the invention of canvas came around the woven sails were retired as water, mildew and rot would eat away at the sails. The canvas ones would last much longer and be much more reliable. -The iconic red color comes from an additive called tanbark. This tannin was extracted from the bark of oak trees and ground up into a deep brownish red powder which was used to stain the sails. -During the Ming Dynasty Admiral Zheng He had an army of these boats, around 300 of them. -He had the largest ones ever constructed, as well as different junks for different purposed. -His fleet of junks was broken down into treasure ships, horse ships, supply ships, troop transports, fuchuan warships, patrol boats, and water tankers which if you are curious could hold 1 month’s supply of water. -Surprisingly the largest of these boats were the treasure ships with some accounts stating they were around 400 feet or 120 meters long. -The Aqua Luna or Cheung Po Tsai was named after a Chinese pirate that lived on Cheung Chau island just off the coast of Hong Kong. -Aqua Luna is one of the last remaining chinese junks boats which operates in the Hong Kong Harbour -It took a Hong Kong craftsman 18 months to build using traditional shipbuilding methods with the supervision of a 73 year old shipbuilder. -The boat launched in 2006, is 28 meters or 92 feet long and holds 80 passengers. -Nowadays the Aqua Luna takes tourists out on the water with an motor and not the power of the wind. This simply wouldn’t be a reliable form of transportation with paying tourists waiting to get on the boat. -There is one other boat that was more recently launched in the Hong Kong harbour called the Duk Ling which is a smaller boat carrying up to 36 passengers. -A ride on these boats range from $25 to $60 dollars depending on the boat and time of day. -Not all junks look the same, modern junks with an updated design have been found like this one.

NORDIC, a modern offshore tug! The Nordic is an offshore Salvage-Tug, which fulfills the job of the German-Coast emergency towing concept. Her home port is Norderney, a smal island at the fresian Coast in the northwestern Part of Germany. The model is not only build with much details, also it was ready to sail quite a while before the original vessel set sails, so that it had to be modified afterwards to picture the original. When ready she also got the honor to swim next to her much larger sister ... :-) German Version: Die NORDIC ist ein Hochsee-Bergungsschlepper, der speziell zur Erfüllung des Deutschen Notschleppkonzeptes des Bundes entworfen und gebaut wurde. Sie versieht als Ersatz für die erfolgreiche OCEANIC bei jedem Wetter ihren Dienst zum Schutz der friesischen Inseln. Beiheimatet ist sie auf der Insel Norderney. Das Modell ist nicht nur mit viel Detailtreue gebaut worden, es war auch schon deutlich vor dem Original fertig und musste so sogar noch nachträglich an das Original angepasst werden. Auf wurde ihm schon die Ehre zuteil, direkt neben dem Original schwimmen zu dürfen! :-) UNSERE KANÄLE / OUR CHANNELS --------------------------------------------------------- YouTube: MODELLSCHIFFE / MODELSHIPS: ► http://www.youtube.de/subwaterfilm YouTube: UNTERWASSERWELT / SUBWATER DIVE ► https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCe7FN_qoeM0GryJDE2-eNwQ YouTube: ALL the rest / SUBWATER VLOG ► https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCZyh-Tqby5SJHbfZC3STFzA Facebook: ► http://www.facebook.de/subwaterfilm

This month's First Thursday Feature is a showcase of Doug Jackson's DIY Ocean Research Vessel - the SV Seeker. Doug is building a 74' Chinese origami junk boat in his back yard. He plans to allow students and other researchers to lease his volunteer staffed boat for under $500 a day (about 80 times LESS than other research boats). Seeing the project in person, signing his guest book and working on the boat left me a changed man. Realizing that we are capable of so much more than we give ourselves credit for was the gift that Doug's project gave back to me. If you have a spare weekend and can drive to Tulsa, I would highly recommend devoting a couple days of your time to Doug's effort. You won't regret it.

Roman stopped by 4 years ago on his quest to find the safest boat he could find. He has looked at titanium hulls, expedition boats, double hulls, you name it. I know what you are thinking. Why did he stop at my boat? Frankly, I think it was to warn me. That conversation got him nowhere but we became friends anyway. Now he has his "unsinkable boat", his words, not mine, and he is rigging it for Chinese Junk sails. That part, I just love. I have no idea how this will play out but it's going to be a great adventure and that is what life is about. --Doug The Builder: http://www.safeboats.com/ Patrons and Other Support: http://wp.me/P6ivyU-1wT FaceBook: https://www.facebook.com/SailingVesselSeeker/ Blog: http://www.svseeker.com/wp/blog/ Store: http://www.svseeker.com/wp/sv-seeker-2/shop/

Some ideas take root and grow faster than the weeds. SV Seeker is one of those ideas that started from a chance conversation about building a boat and getting it to the ocean via the Arkansas river. That was about 12 years ago and the though of sailing a boat I built across the oceans was something that scared me. ...and it made me feel alive. And it still does. What's the point of living if you don't LIVE. Feel the fear and do it anyway. Blog: http://www.svseeker.com/wp/blog/ Store: http://www.svseeker.com/wp/sv-seeker-2/shop/

Get Mechanix Illustrated Boat Plans here http://tinyurl.com/GetBoatPlans The Internet is full of boat plans. Many companies sell boat plans for a small price. However, they aren't all worth the price. A lot of plans found online are quite old, so the finished boat could be an older design which might have several technical faults in the hull construction. The simplicity and convenience of using the Internet to find a boat plan won't matter if you end up with a plan that will not work for you. Aluminum, fiberglass, steel, and stitch and glue are the popular choices when it comes to boat building construction methods. The stitch and glue method is suitable for just about anyone, with plywood often seen as a nicer and easier material to work with. For those with carpentry skills, plywood is likely to be the material of choice. And with aluminum or Steel it helps to have knowledge in welding skills. Building a custom-built craft requires a good set of boat plans. So, take the time to seek out plans that are user-friendly and meet your specific needs. Are you looking for boat plans?

My one metre radio control proa has now had its original balestron rig replaced with a modernised, high aspect chinese junk rig. The performance is very surprising. If you have ever thought that junk rigged boats cannot sail upwind then you are wrong! The proa can point to 45 degrees from the true wind, the same pointing angle as with the balestron sloop rig. Video also gives demonstration of the proas capsize recovery. To find out more about my designs go to: http://jbyachtdesigns.co.nz/

It is virtually unsinkable and if it capsizes in the stormy seas around the British Isles, it will right itself within a few seconds. The lifeboat includes the computerised Systems and Information Management System (SIMS) that enables crew to control many of the lifeboat's functions remotely from the safety of their seats. Other features include advanced ergonomics that reduce the impact on the crew as the lifeboat crashes through waves, and a powered Y-class boat stored behind a transom door to allow immediate deployment. The Y-boat is accessed by lifting a section of the rear deck, then launched and recovered on to a ramp provided by the lowered transom door. The kit contains all the required parts to build the model: Two glassfibre mouldings: the hull and the deck Prop-shafts, propellers, brass rudders; a bow-thruster tube Cnc-cut and printed styrene for the construction of the cabin with detailed interior A set of fittings and stanchions manufactured from high grade cast alloy Three large frets of etched brass components including detailed window frames, instrumentation, interior detail etc. Pre-formed mast arches from brass tube Vac-formed styrene radar, bow fender, liferaft boxes, liferings, filler bays and hose reel A vac-formed styrene kit for the Y-class boat with Lettering and Numbers Self-adhesive Lifeboats lettering and RNLI flags Over 70 construction drawings and main plans The Y-boat compartment under the rear deck is an optional fitment with a choice of building the deck door as a one-piece removable unit or with folding sections. The transom door can be represented by a score in the GRP or drawn in with a permanent marker pen. The more experienced model maker will no doubt wish to build a working transom door however no details are given in the kit. We have ensured that the steering gear is below the Y-boat deck level should the modeller wish to house the Y-boat below decks. Not supplied in the kit: The hull & cabin roof numbers and lettering for any Tamar in the fleet (available from Maritime Models, www.maritime-models.co.uk). Paints, adhesives and tools will be required to complete.
