I purchased the plans about a month ago from Timm Smith over at http://www.smithmarinedesign.com/osprey18.html . I ordered my first round of Okume plywood on Christmas Eve and it is on the way from World Panel.



Today I completed the strongback along with the hairpin support and transom support.

Where are you located at in PC? I would love to stop by and check out the progress and maybe learn a little bit. I work for Gulf Power and I am constantly going from one side of town to the other. Keep up the great work man!

Thanks Guys! I put about 4 hours into it tonight and got the fairing to the 99% point. I plan to stare at it for a while and go over it again with a batten to make sure everything is good. I may laminate the other 3/4" piece to the transom if I get time. I guess it is time to order some plywood for the planking!

Not a lot to show, but I did spend a good bit of time yesterday doing some general epoxy work. I got three coats on my limbers. I did a good bit of sanding/smoothing of thickened epoxy around the joints. I also had a few places that need some additional thickened epoxy. I hope to get my plywood ordered on Monday!
