Re: My (Sort Of) Sea Knight Build

Its been a busy summer for work and family so I haven't been able to complete as much as I'd hoped. :cry: Because of photobucket's change in policy, I see that all of the pictures are now gone. I've included the following link for those that want to look back on all my progress pictures. https://pho...

Re: SEA KNIGHT

Hi Craig, Your build looks amazing and I'm so happy to see the latest updates! It's definitely helping to keep me motivated for my sea Knight build, which unfortunately hasn't been getting the attention I'd like to give. Would you mind telling me how much head room you've managed to get out of your ...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

AMAZING work Carl. It's taken me a bit to get caught up on your progress and you're killing it! Very helpful to see how you are planning out the interior layout as I've been struggling to firm up how I want mine to be. Keep it up! :D

Re: My (Sort Of) Sea Knight Build

....AND I'M BACK! It's been a while since my last post. After welcoming our first baby girl to the family my free time has been rather limited. Nevertheless, I continue to forge on and have been increasingly happy just enjoying the process. Since my last update, I've managed to get all the planking ...

Re: My (Sort Of) Sea Knight Build

Hot diggity! Posting these updates has become one of my favourite parts of the build as it's amazing to see how much progress I've made. Still a long way to go but motivation is high and I'm really enjoying this part of the build. My first time cutting and gluing scarf joints was...a real learning e...

Re: My (Kind of) Sea Knight Build

This day was spent lightly sanding my new battens, chine, sheer! Once sanded I pulled out the router and added a nice rounded edge to the interior portion of each piece. While my boat isn't bound to win any awards for skill or beauty I was really impressed with how they looked! http://i1067.photobuc...

Re: My (Sort Of) Sea Knight Build

I managed to bang out two new saw horses for my table saw out feed. Even though they aren't winning any awards for style or beauty they work great and so I got right down to business! http://i1067.photobucket.com/albums/u425/2froberts/20160918_144024_zpssxp2igt7.jpg http://i1067.photobucket.com/albu...

Re: My (Sort Of) Sea Knight Build

Thank you all for your advice and kind words. I think I may have to employ my 10year old brother come time and arm him with a screwdriver! Ian, raising the build form would have been genius! I've already added it to my growing list of "things to do differently next time." I love your turni...

Re: My (Sort Of) Sea Knight Build

Thank you everyone! Yes the shop sure is something special, especially since most everything in it is now getting a second lease on life. I have such a strong appreciation for how great everything still runs! Including the old radio!!! :D With the exception of a few newer items that I own/purchased ...

Re: My (Sort Of) Sea Knight Build

Finally brought my wife over to see the progress that I've made. She's a little hesitant about this whole "build your own boat" thing but having her see that this isn't just a little canoe helped a ton! Gotta keep her happy if I still want to work on this thing. http://i1067.photobucket.co...

Updated shop 360! http://i1067.photobucket.com/albums/u425/2froberts/20160819_133142_zpstllhfev8.jpg Spent some time in the evenings with my favourite sander. I've been really happy with the results so far! http://i1067.photobucket.com/albums/u425/2froberts/20160819_133212_zpsg0yw7ppa.jpg http://i10...
