Vivier Seil Building Jig

 Sailboats / / 93 views


This ad is for the jig on which a boat can be built, not the boat.  In early June I will move my just-completed François Vivier Seil onto her trailer and will no longer need the jig.  I would like for it to go to a good home and help build another boat.

The Seil is a large sail-and-oar pram.  You can find plenty of information and pictures on my thread at the WoodenBoat Forum:

This jig is made from CNC cut medium density fiberboard.  In June 2022 the materials cost $438. CNC cutting for the jig alone was at least $500, so the jig cost me about $1,000.    I got great use from it and it is a bit worn and epoxy stained, but I would not hesitate to use it to build another boat again.   I would be happy to pass it along to the next builder in exchange for a donation to a mutually agreeable charity.

Buyer is responsible for transportation.  The jig is located in Richmond, CA.  It disassembles into flat pieces no longer than 8′ for transport.  Assembled weight is somewhere around 450 lbs.
