    Got some dirty work done yesterday. Still have some grinding to do, but I can get this done on some cold days. The good news is, I can start building templates,core, front and rear deck etc. So, by the time the weather turns, I can jump outside and start tabbing in stringers and such.

    Lots of work done. You decking it in? I used to live in Pa when I was a kid. My Grandma was one of the last heirs to PPG. We lived in Camp Hill during the 59 snow it was up to the eves of our house. I got frost bite that year. NO desire to go back.

    Pretty work on the previous projects and good luck on this one. If it turns out like the others, you'll have a fine little skiff.

    Yep, plan on putting in a deck, which will drain into the splash well. Still haven’t figured out if it’s realistic to make this thing self draining.

    Yea, PA stinks in the winter, and I hate the cold with a passion.
