FIRST saw the original Badger while I was down in the south of England for a few days. She was nestling in a quiet corner of Southampton docks and, having long felt the urge to build something scalish ‑ something that I could pack a lot of detail into ‑ I simply couldn't resist making a few sketches there and then. It was love at first sight! I covered all the old envelopes I had about me at the time with drawings and, my enthusiasm fired, rushed home to start work.
Badger's hull is built on the bread and butter principle in obechi ‑ the construction method is my own and I use it mainly because it is both simple and quick and saves a considerable amount of drawing board and marking out time. It is simply this; I take the planks and screw them together to form a block of suitable size to accommodate the maximum dimensions of the hull I desire. This block is then marked with the hull profile and cut to this line. The process is repeated for plan lines leaving just the rounding off and finishing to be carried out using templates cut from line drawings.
