Wood Flooring Gas Shipping box Carton

A gift from my wife for Christmas. 25 quart. I will make a cushion for it that she will sit on . Boat will be color matched to this on the outside of the hull with a pale grey interior.

First major mistake found. Frame four is two inches off center in the strong back. No bid deal I will trace our frame 4 from boat #2 and cut the old frame from the keel with a oscillating saw. First mistake of many. I won't let this rain on my parade I'm thankful to have the time and funds to build this.

Chine logs toward stem bowed badly. Thank God for the invention of the power plainer! I will affix the panels to the frames with additional thickened epoxy in an effort to smooth out the edges. I believe it won't affect performance as the slightly concave bend seems to be the forward portion of the boat. The plaining surface and transom portion of the boat is a smooth curvature

Scarfed together the sheer clamps. Once again I thank God for the many benefits of the power plainer and for the newly built Lincolnton NC harbor freight franchise and their low price and temporarily effective power tools.

They are to speck I think. I should have beveled the frames 1/4" on the binding side. Will do that on the sheer clamps. It will be .20 ply with 4oz zynole on the bottom and sides of the hull wich equals 10oz to 15oz fiberglass depending on who you ask. It is more abrasion and puncture resistant than fiberglass. It is similar to Kevlar and has more stretch than glass. Inside the hull will be two layers of 6oz glass. The foam then a deck with two 4oz layers on the underside and zynonl on the top of deck/sole.
