  4. Other Van Dam - Trunk Cabin Day Cruiser

    Williams Bay, Wisconsin, United States

    My Three Sons Construction Process: Van Dam designed and built this boat with the capability of handling the rough waters of the Straits of Mackinaw in comfort. Her well-vented and bright cabin offers a galley with microwave, refrigerator, enclosed head, and abundant storage. The Van Dam team uses state of the art design technique in their adaptation of the 3D models to not only demonstrate renderings of their boat but also to predict performance. For many decades Van Dam has been successfully using epoxy to build their custom wood boats. Utilizing this product, they have employed various methods to maximize the strength and minimize the weakness of wood. Van Dam uses a process called “cold molding”. At room temperature adhesives are applied to laminate many thin layers of wood with the grain in opposing directions to create the large structural m embers of the hull and the hull itself. Thin fiberglass sheets are incorporated between layers of wood in this process. Using principles such as treating wood like a unidirectional fiber that is stronger along the grain than across the grain contribute to the unquestionably finest workmanship in wooden boat building. Wood fabrication is not the only expertise at Van Dam. They have intense engineering experienced personnel to incorporate engine selection with appropriate power. They are unique in that they have the skill and equipment to fabricate custom fittings in stainless steel or aluminum that combine artistry and functionality. The “port hole” windows, cabin door latch, and structural stainless steel are just some of the examples incorporated within My Three Sons. The wood used in My Three Sons is predominantly mahogany and secondarily, teak. The method used to remove all the air between and impervious surface (table, partially built hull) and a flexible impervious sheet is called vacuum bagging. Van Dam uses this process to remove air between two impervious materials by way of a vacuum pump with the air pressure in our atmosphere pushing the two impervious surfaces together.
