the bottom pieces and butt blocks were cut and then glued up tonight :D I can't take credit for any of it. It looks like my oldest son has taken over this build. :shock: :roll: he even took the picture :D

And that is the way you do it. Get the younguns involved and pass on the tradition. :D

Few things in the world measure up to the thrill and satisfaction of boating in a boat that you built.

I had extra hands available tonight, so we started stitching the bottom halves together and installed the form. I already knew that because of the shape of the forward pieces that they would be a !%*^@ to bring together. So they will rest tonight and we will install more wire and a strap tomorrow and finish pulling them together. also we will add more wires to those 3 gaps along the keel and fix them. :D

Is the keel a fair line at the gaps Chip? If so just duct tape on the outside and fill the gaps with thickened.

Don't pull up & close the gaps if it destroys the fairness of the keel....but you knew that,sometimes it just needs to be said!!! :wink:

slow and steady wins everytime 8) :wink: this is the hardest stitch I have ever done :(. we closed the bottom at the bow from a 5" gap to a 1" gap tonight. Will let it rest over night and close up tomorrow. I hope. :D

It sure looks helpless and inept, all naked like that :wink:
I get the idea a small boat like the Jon, might be done like that as well.
To get that 'v' like bottom to make it easier to row in a straight line.
Naw! I'd worry too much about the F/Glass giving way.

Thud, I was going to let this go, but I decided other wise :wink: , yes she looks naked, but if you had read my last post carefully you would know that my side pieces were cut and being glued together, so give me a couple of days and she will have some skin :as far as being inept, are you referring to my build or glen's design? speaking of builds when are you finally going to build your Mr. John?????
