    Hi All,

    Seven years later, four moves, two years in the Middle East, another kid, and a global pandemic later I am nearing the end of my build!

    My standards have lowered, for sure. I just want...

    Looks sharp Rake. I was thinking I would sandwich the bulkhead as you did. Helpful to see how it turns out. Wish I had the tools/skills to have the rounded out spacers. Your goal looks great.

    Brian - I just bought 1 Q thus far. I'm lucky enough to have a marine shop a mile away with nearly every color in stock.

    Thanks for the input!

    Finished installing and coating the center seat. Started to plane down the bevel on the gunwale so I can get her glued on. I'll use the time to contemplate my spacer spacing....
  5. Back from the grave and nearly complete!

    Hello All!

    A fast approaching move abroad has lit a fire under me and I am getting close to the end. I was able to solve my bottom panel snafu by slightly twisting the bottom panel to use the...

    Thanks for the tip. Once I clear out the garage and organize I'm going to do just that. I'll have plenty of workroom so long as I do a better job of keeping things organized! Space is definitely at...

    I was thankfully able to get 20' fir.

    I am amazed at how nicely the side panels and bulkheads magically come together into a very cool looking boat! Also slightly surprised at how big the thing...
  8. Booyah!

    Every bit as gratifying as I had thought it would be. . .

    Still some fine tuning that needs to be done, and need to sink a couple more screws once the battery on my wimpy drill...
  9. Getting closer to a dry fit

    After long radio silence I am nearly to the dry fit stage. I just need to glue the bottom framing on to bulkhead #4 and I am good to go. Before I do that I just wanted to double check the overlap on...
  10. Thanks. Had I had the option of a power saw...

    Thanks. Had I had the option of a power saw readily available it would have been a no-brainer. I figure all the work with hand tools will eventually give me manly forearms.

    I just finished gluing...

    I followed Northstar's lead and decided to take a whack at the scarfs for my chinelogs.

    I think they turned out pretty good considering I did them with japanese razor saw, my block plane, sand...

    I've been wondering how to go about cutting the scarf for my chine logs. I managed to get 20'ers for the gunwale/inwale, so this will be my only scarfing. Wondering whether to try and hack it out...

    Not possible to be much further away from Seattle than that! Even better to have you in mine - you can teach me how to use it and fine tune it. You have the gisamateur blog, no? Your blog was...

    I love the Center for Wooden Boats. When I moved up here a couple years back I decided I needed to find a way to get out sailing. It started with CWB until I found an unofficial share/partnership...

    Northstar - I picked up my clamps at Home Depot for $1 each. Figured no sense in ever feeling like I didn't have enough, so I bought 26! I

    Thanks Pontus. That is exactly what I was looking for. I'll proceed onward!

    Northstar - here are some photos of BH #1. You can see the two close ups differ slightly in the areas of focus to show...

    Thanks for all the advice. I've starting chugging along on the bulkheads so can inch closer towards seeing if there will even be an issue when the bottom goes on.

    Bulkhead #1 Question:

    I've got...

    Glad to hear I can keep chugging along. Thanks again for the extra info. I did leave the full excess on the stern, per the plans, so I think I will be ok.

    I had been curious/nervous about the stem since I first read some build reports. Once you mark the center line and dive in it really isn't so bad. I marked the centerline and then used my japanese...

    Michael - thanks for the detailed response!

    I was hoping it wouldn't be an issue, but it seems it will take some extra effort to work around. I checked out the bottom panel again today and figured...
  21. Goat - new build in Seattle - and a bottom panel question

    Hello,

    I started my build a couple weeks ago in Seattle. I have cut out the side panels and the bottom panels. However, in my exuberance get going on the bottom panels I forgot to leave the extra...
