The 11.5 is our smallest dedicated chipper, but it packs a serious punch. DR Self-Feeding design allows it to tear through branches up to 3.75” in diameter, and do it continuously...without bogging down the way underpowered “big box” machines do.

An easy-grip handle bar makes for a convenient way to maneuver the 11.5 Chipper by hand. You can also add an optional pin-hitch kit that lets you hook up to your lawn tractor or ATV and tow the 11.5 model around your property.

A large vertically oriented hopper, a precisely-angled heavy-duty chipping knife, and a powerful air channel work together to pull branches into the chipping hopper and blast wood chips out the discharge. Most materials will self-feed, so once you drop a branch in your free to get the next one. No force feeding required!

This essay proposes to fill the alleged gap by offering a general discussion of how to approach the survey of a wood hulled vessel. In addition, I would recommend a thorough study of WOOD: A Manual for its Use As a Shipbuilding Material, Department of the Navy, 1957, ISBN 0961060204, and Ian Nicholson's Surveying Small Craft, Sheridan House, 1987. 

I also recognize that in this day and age when very few wooden boats are being built, and most have gone the way of buggy whips, there's not much opportunity to gain experience in wood vessel survey. Yet the overriding feature of the surveyor's art is just that: experience. And since the Coast Guard is reported to survey over 1400 wood vessels annually, certainly no one has a better opportunity to gain that experience rapidly and amass a large body of comparative data rapidly. 

As their own studies and data has shown, the U.S. wooden boat fleet is aging and deteriorating. Because of that, the of accidents like EL TORO are likely to increase unless the CG does not only a better job of surveying them, but also of mandating repairs or condemning them once structural deterioration has reached the point of no return.

A plane is an indispensable tool for smoothing and shaping wood. Planes are used to "shave" thin, uniform strips from a piece of wood, creating a smooth, level surface by removing "high spots". Originally, all planing was done by hand, while, today, electric planer machines allow woodworkers to plane with modern quickness and efficiently. Knowing how to plane wood is a vital skill for all woodworkers - see Step 1 below to start learning how!
