Thanks Aussie, it will be a little while yet, but at least I'm moving in the right direction again! Started planking the transom yesterday. Pass on my regards to your mum and dad.
Specialk: The tractor was a 1949? Ferguson TE20. Bought it 16 years ago with a slasher and back blade for $2000 not long after we moved in here. Best $2k I ever spent. Wasn't using it any more and needed a new clutch, so I sold it a couple of months ago for $1500. Not bad for 16 years of use!

Well have finished the transom planking and have done the initial shaping of the side capping between the transom and sides and have glued them on. Tomorrow I'll start the final shaping of the side capping including about a 1/2" round over on the side capping. Then it's on to the bottom planking.

Have started planking the bottom. Have been wondering about the corner cover strip where the side meets the transom. The instructions say to have an approx. 1/2" round-over but I'm thinking of leaving it a crisp sharp edge. The disadvantage is potential damage from bumps but the Tahoe has guards at the transom and around onto the rear sides, so it should be protected. Also I may put stainless steel bands on the sides where they meet the transom.
What do people think?

8) round off the corners at first to the size of a wood pencil if you dont when you cover with fiber glass cloth you could get a air pocket once you have your glass on then shape the epoxy to a sharp edge :wink:
Don't be afraid to attempt anything. You might surprise your self in the attempt.

Thanks for the advice. I'm not sure if I will put cloth on the sides or not. Might only do the bottom.
