This blog shows the photographic progress of my builds

Album: Catamarano (Graupner)

Patterned after the catamarans built from Pacific island palm wood.


Kit dimensions:

Length approx. 350 mm

Beam approx. 290 mm

Overall height approx. 310 mm

All-up weight approx. 60 g


Another small raft project I suggest as a great family project for any budding shipwright. It requires only a carving knife (no.11 blade), sandpaper, a few small dia. Drill bits, thread, some dowels and balsa wood. It’s a discontinued kit but I’m including all the specs and diagrams should anyone wish to build one.

The build took 7 hours to complete.
