You laugh. But, I've seen the video. Somebody had RC boat and truck. They came down the beach backed the trailer in, and launched the boat.

We are all facing this. I bought from Homestead in Ohio. If you can buy all at once you get a discount. That discount was more than shipping, to the a local terminal and local tax. That even covered renting a truck to go get it..

I'm on the coast right now. I've an appointment in B'ham., Friday morning. If I need surgery that will be next Thursday. This is the same guy that did my shoulder a few years ago, excellent.

Thank you. This why we want everyone to post pictures and document their builds. There are two bonuses. First, you help others. Second, down the road, you can go back and see what you did. It's a real help. My memory just ain't what it used to be.

If it's 1/8' to 1/4" radius, I wouldn't mess with it.

Not on the keel. Production boat don't have don't have "knife" edge on the transom. Mine are rounded about like an old wood pencil. I'm to clumsy to have sharp edges around me. I think there is a point of overkill on this.

What if you took the sheetrock off the end wall? That's thinking outside the boat!

She's looking great. I know much will evolve during the build. But, thinking ahead is never a waste.

All of the mahoganies are basically built the same way. Check my link below and you can see the process.

Well... I screwed up. After working on the boat some yesterday, I went for a walk. About a mile. Almost home, I got unsteady and fell. I broke my wrist. Orthopedic guy this Friday. Maybe, surgery next Thursday.
