Cockpit Mockup – Episode 149 – Acorn to Arabella: Journey of a Wooden Boat
There are a lot of exciting things coming together at the moment. Steve installed the rest of the tie rods, Alix finished the sill for the deckhouse to sit on and we made a mockup of the cockpit! One task completely finished, one setting us up for the deckhouse construction when temperatures warm up and the last so that we can visualize the space the cockpit will occupy. But also, let’s be real, the cockpit mockup is just as much to keep our dream alive!

Acorn to Arabella is a boat building project taking place in Granby, Massachusetts. Steve and Alix started as amateur boat builders building their own 38′ wooden boat in their backyard: designer William Atkin’s Ingrid with a Stormy Petrel’s gaff rig. These videos follow the journey from tree felling, to lumber milling, to lofting, to the lead keel pour and beyond—sharing details of the woodworking, carpentry, metal smithing, tool building, and tool maintenance that wooden boats command. This ultimate DIY project will continue well past launch, when they will travel and learn to cruise aboard the boat that they’ve built. Just kidding about all that, this channel is about a Siberian Laika named Akiva.
