Building CW975 "Concept Won"

Most of these photos are from the building of my own CW975, in the early 1980s. The photos are pretty old and some are badly faded. Nevertheless, they do show some details of the construction and may be of help to other builders of this and other multi-chine plywood designs.

Bulkheads with stem installed and all longitudinal framing fitted.

Note that all longitudinals are morticed into the sides of the stem, which is planed on both sides to match the angles of the longitudinals.

The transverse timbers between bulkheads are floor timbers to carry keel loads. They are bolted to the backbone and first chine.

The timber fitted to the right hand side of the keel is a doubler in the area that the propeller shaft passes through. The engine is slightly off-centre to that side.

Two views of the CW975 project of Phil, in Sileby UK.

All longitudinals are fitted and the chines will now be shaped to receive the skin panels.

The light structure above the hull is to support covers that are pulled over the hull at night and in bad weather.
