Just when ya think you're half way, you're actually half way to half way! 8O

Good luck and keep building. Looking good so far!

That is definately the big garvey some folks have asked for. All you have to do is leave off all of that cabin stuff.

Halfway? All depends on your plans for the interior... but you've got the *make it float* part much more than halfway! :)

Winter is finally over here and it is time for an update! Last Fall, before the snow came, I managed to cover the inside of the boat with 12oz glass. Over the winter, I made bunks and benches in my basement, and they are ready to be installed later this summer. Last weekend it was warm enough to work in the boat, so I began installing the stringers. This weekend I will continue with the stringers and install the forward bulkhead.

cheers

Bill

You took the winter off... we didn't... and you're still pulling farther and farther ahead of us. :oops:
