Steam & Oak

The boat has ribs! Saturday was a very productive day, with all the white oak ribs steamed and bent to shape!

Nick brought his steam box and turkey fryer, and got it fired up. Brent had prepared the stock beforehand, using wood from the same batch as what he used for frames on his big boat, Ricochet. Very appropriate, as this little boat will serve as a tender on Ricochet.

Take a look at the OLAS Photos album on Google Photos for a few more shots, and a video of one of the first ribs being bent into place. Feel free to look through that album from time to time – a few of us regularly post a bunch of pics there. And let us know if you want to add some too!
