Usually enough water in the bilge to cause the pumps to run is going to be either really heavy rain or forgetting to put the drain plug(s) in. Also, it's great to see your progress, Carl. I know it seems tedious now but your thoughtfulness will pay off later. I am also at the point of trying to work...
Looks like that's what it was designed for to me. I'm not aware of a forum member that has built one. There are several in the photographs sections so it is a proven design. At 8' beam it is trailerable although you'll need a hefty tow vehicle.

Nice, Dave. Glad you were able to get your plane sharp. Sorry I'll miss your fine creating at G11 this year. It was cool to see the unfinished product last year.
Craig, your windshield frames look top notch, even with the gap. I would think you would want some kind of rubber gasket regardless of what you end up doing with wedges just to keep things from vibrating around and scuffing the finish.
I need to fill the kerf that I cut in the battens in my boat now that it is flipped. I am unsure of exactly how to do this but I was thinking of using a syringe to pump some epoxy in there. Does anyone know of a good source?

I'm not sure where you live but you may be able to work through the winter with epoxy. First you can switch to a faster hardener if one is available for your system. Also a small space heater blowing warm air under the hull may do the trick to help cure the epoxy during the colder months. You don't ...

The boat looks great! 24x30 is a good size for a shop. I had 24x24 in NC and it was enough for the boat plus other projects. If you can make your door slightly higher than the standard 7' you'll be doing yourself a favor.

Sapelli was the same price as oak at my supplier in Marion, NC. I did not know this until after I had already bought all the oak. I might have gone that way had I known. I just assumed it was quite a bit more.
