    Seven years ago this boat was given to me making it my first boat. Turned out to be a good starter boat as the hull was almost finished. Having painted it the way the write up seamed to say. Then ready to run and into the water. The boat being top heavy it tipped and took on water. Back to the work bench and striped and left to sit until this year. The boat is almost finished needs rudder motor and ballast Rick

    The front and rear bulkheads were made sanded and trim pieces put in place.
    The rear bulkhead was changed to add a window as the drawing did not show one and trim added.
    The front bulkhead was changed to mahagany pieces instead of basswood 3rd picture basswood pieces.
    Roof frames were built.

    Work started on the superstructure. The numbered pieces (6) were punched out to make the two sides for the cabin. The pieces are butt jioned and needed a left and right. Not sure the glue would be enough to hold the pieces together. Cut strips of fiber cloth and glued each seam on the inside of both sides. Built the front of the cabin. clean up and sanding to come.

    The drawing for the stand was to be transfered to wood of choice I felt the disign was to small for this build. Had a length of 1x4 pine and picked up 7/16 dowel to build a redisigned stand. Marked the plan angles onto the pine and disigned the shape to be cut out. Cut out drilled and put together. Clean up to come.

    I have been using the same product. Had success cutting it on cardboard using a straight edge and box cutter (new blade) Still need to be careful in how you handle the fiberglass cloth.

    Decide to fiberglass the hull before gluing the mahagany in place. Used Ezy-Kote to paint the cloth in place.
