I am looking for wood suppliers in the Bangkok area for making Wharram Double Canoes. I went to check out Wood Street in Bangkok, Thailand. I saw a lot of beautiful wood, but I can say that all the businesses mostly cater to furniture makers and home builders. I could not find BS1088 Marine Grade Plywood here. Still it was a very interesting and useful afternoon. I have found some other addresses here in Thailand where I can get good quality BS1088 Marine Grade plywood.
This is a very long video. It’s the trip by the Orange Flag Chao Phraya Express boat from Saphan Taksin to Nonthaburi. The price for this one way trip was 15 Baht. Total trip was more than 1 hour. At departure there were a lot of tourists and the boat was full, but almost everybody got out at the first several stops for visiting beautiful temples.
Just observing wonderful life in Thailand. In this first episode there are various shots from different areas in Bangkok.

This video is about our wonderful stay together with our friends Stewart and Zaya on their beautiful Wharram Tiki 38 Luckyfish in The Bahamas.
Stewart and Zaya have a fantastic channel on YouTube named Luckyfish Gets Away: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCkHpXYj4icqUOkQZqkelyPg

In this video I am making the lower bulkhead sections out of 10mm Bruynzeel Hechthout marine grade plywood. Did I mention already that I love working with my small block plane? 🙂

In this video I am making the lower bulkhead patterns out of hardboard. Using my new blockplane to straighten the edges of the patterns works much better than my previous method of using the random orbit sander. 🙂

On this day I reorganized one of the rooms, applied some epoxy on backbone parts, removed amine blush. Received several new pieces of 9mm Bruynzeel Hechthout and hardboard, stored them in my temperature and humidity controlled room. Did some sanding. Applied a second layer of epoxy on 2 pieces. And the last thing I did was re-checking the lower bulkhead drawings that I made on the lofting floor.

Today I did a redraw of the lower bulkheads on the lofting floor, because I was not satisfied with the method I used in the previous video. The previous time I used a flexible ruler to draw curved lines for the lower bulkheads, but when I was at home and looked again at the plans I noticed that these are obviously straight lines. So I had to go to the workspace today to redraw the lower bulkheads together with Louissanto. I forgot to film or photograph the difference, but I will show it in the next video.
