That's a great photo of what is clearly a superbly constructed boat.


I designed my own boat. This is the build thread:

The stringer on the starboard side was the worst as far as level goes. Now that the cleats are on and level is established.
I have a considerable gap to fill there. My approach is to use scrap marine ply to gap fill the top of the stringer.
I used some 3/8" and 1/4" to get this done. Once the wood glue sets I can encapsulate that with epoxy glue.

Other than that I'm slinging more mud to get these filled.

Once all of this is done I'm going to use a pencil grinder to undercut the dowels on the cleats.
Then I will fill those with epoxy glue.

I am a little jealous of this build. It will be a kick ass boat when done and about 15% of the work of the Skoota dm.

I am feeling a bit overwhelmed these days.
My boat build is here -------->

Hey Fallguy, both Eric's and your builds are A1 first class sensational. Don't forget you're building two boats. :wink:
