That's so cool, Chip. You're bringing another tug into this world. I just noticed today, as I toodled around the site.

She's looking sweet already. BTW, I have an epoxy fetish too, I'm not a sandman. I guess in boat building there's two kinds of people: epoxy-files; and sandmen.

Nice to see and have a great build,

Richard

Thanks Richard,
I let the boys have at it on the little sister to your Tug Along. I should have made them tape off first :roll: That makes it neater. :D I guess they will learn the art of sanding and I bet they will tape off next time. :wink: :lol:

Well, I have been burning up my last marble trying to figure out how to get the two deck pieces out of one sheet of plywood. I then decided to use a 4'x8' piece of cardboard to pattern the deck. I still had to use 4 pieces to make it work, but now I'm confident I can tape the side deck pieces to the main deck pieces and position them on my plywood and get my two cuts. :D

WOW Chip, I have been negligent or MIA or something. You are making some quick progress.

Hello all! I've been following the tug along builds recently as I'm very interested in the 18' version. I had already chosen the same route as Grand Chillin by building the Pug. I have the plans already. This will be my second s&g boat. Nearly finished with the Bullseye. Chris Price

Sadly, most of the pics I had of the bullseye build got deleted from my cellphone before backing them up :( (won't happen again). I guess I'll have to start over now :lol: . However, if you look at Mark Chadwick's bullseye pics in the customer photos, they look basically the same. This is where I'm at now. Won't likely do much more on the hull till spring due to cold temps. Fortunately, I can do more on my spars, oars, rudder and daggerboard in a spare room in the house. Also, I'm going to try to build my own trailer during the winter(have those plans, too). As far as the pug goes, I might try to at least have the hull stitched up by spring. Lots to do!

No I'm not finished yet. :roll: I haven't had you breathing down my neck. :shock: so I have been a little slack. :oops: Don't knock the cardboard, it worked. With the patterns we were able to cut the two deck pieces out of one sheet of plywood. :D

Congrats,, you are moving on up in the area of smartness, or sorta like you are seeing the light, lots of them so to speak lately. :lol: :lol: 8) Looking foward to your video of your finished hull in the float test this weekend. I would probably think with the fine work in the bow that the bow is good enough to do double duty as the ice breaker on the lake this time of year too. :oops: :roll: 8) :lol:[you are right,,can't give you too much slack even while cheering for USC] :lol: :lol:

Smart thinking, Chip. She's looking good. She's pretty much a smaller Tug Along. I suspect the bulwarks will be assembled in similar fashion?
