Thanks Jim. We are far away from the fires so we, and my wood boat are safe for now.

Today's Outing:
Just got back from my hardwood supplier, to have some mill work done (didn't have the capacity for such a large board to do it myself). They took a 4/4 sapele board 14 inches wide and 11 feet long and milled me two 1/8 pieces for my decking. Wow! it would have taken me a lot of time to do that. I watched as they milled the board. First they re-sawed the board on their huge band saw. Had a automatic feeder and what looked like 2" blade. Next they took the pieces and ran them through their two huge sanding machines to bring down to the 1/8" thickness. Took them about 10 minutes! Lots of fun to watch and me not having to worry about tear out on my planer. It was amazing!

The weekend progress:
I really enjoyed this part of the build. Starting to look like the real thing.
Last weekend I finished the deck planking on the rear of the boat, and on the deck beams between the seating areas. Started planking the bow of the boat ( 18 planks to go, they are skinny planks). Planking was a breeze. I slid each piece up to the coverboard, then marked with a compass and sanded to the mark with my 12" disc sander. The patterns that I made earlier to mark the planks where they would rest against the coverboards were a big waste of time, I didn't use them. I used 1/8 tile spacers to get the correct spacing between the planks and the coverboards. Now that the deck planks are flush trimmed on the transom, I can now attach the last mahogany pieces to the transom. Lots of sanding ahead.

I cut the planks on the hatch covers one board at a time as they were attached. Used a japanese saw. Still need to put last boards on the transom.

The forward facing vents will be attached to the wide side planks, and the rear facing vents will be attached on the narrow planks behind the hatch covers.

You're getting there Jim, perhaps by next summer, you'll be on the water. And if not, well, there's plenty of more fun building along the way. Looks great!

Thanks guys!
Matt, the design is a copy of an original boat. A pic of it is on page 7 of one of my earlier posts. The stain will be the same as shown in the picture except my boat will have the dark walnut stain continuing on to the king plank that is on the hatch covers. (I have seen some boats with that scheme).

Thanks Will!
The weekend progress:
Last weekend I finished the planking on the bow of the boat. I was worried that the outward planks on the bow would end as a narrow piece, or not the same, but it came out just fine.

This shows the last plank I was worried about. The other side is the same (I'm amazed).

Bill,
You made me laugh. :lol:
Actually I have an excuse. :roll: Before I start sanding, I need to finish up the top of the transom , cut holes for the vents, put a bunch of bungs in the decks.
Thanks for the encouragement!
