    Just a little more completed . When building a scratch model sometimes it take a while to figure out how to get into boat for any repairs or battery changes so it took a while my solution use some nuts & bolts to hold cabin down Wife wanted shed door repainted after I accidentally sprayed some yellow paint on door so had to get some cans of brown paint .

    It's been raining since early this morning & hasn't stopped so decided to build a rudder & put rudder tube in the boat my next chore will be making a opening in the deck & I'm always afraid I'll make a mistake in hole cutting dimensions because I have no more mahogany door skin left for the deck . Then fun starts putting the motor & stuffing box in another day

    Is that the veneer sheet or mahogany glued to 3ply. A 24โ€x24โ€ panel is available at most Home Depots. If you need just a bit, 6โ€x10โ€ I have some. I could mail them to you, but try Home Depot first.

    One side is Oak the other ??

    Good to know you have it under control Garth.

    Currently getting the garden raised beds ready. They needed reinforcements and used shelf brackets. I couldnโ€™t go get anything from the hardware store. Glad I had screws.

    Stay safe too!

    It's been my experience to measure twice -cut once and go buy more wood...
    I admire you guys building in wood. So far everything I've done has been plastic with perhaps a veneer overlay. Maybe the next boat .
