Got the rear seat/chambers epoxied in tonight, as well as filleting along the chines to smooth up some rough edges.

Will take some pics tomorrow.

Hope to get the inside coated with epoxy tomorrow.

Got a late start...got our Christmas tree,Ashley's present ordered, Debbie's present ordered.

then came home and set the tree in the stand and re-arranged the living room about 4 times to make things fit.

Also put her Lazy-boy on Craigslist and got rid of it to get more room

:shock: :shock: 8) 8) 8) :D :D :D

I'm tired!

Well....got the chambers taped off today after grinding and sanding the inside.....

Made a template for the bow seat/step.

Didn't have enough 3/8 ply left for a one piece seat top, so I cut two pieces from 1/4 and laminated together, so I wouldn't have to split the seat in the middle.

Dave Lott,Dave Lott, Dave Lott.....LOL!!! :wink:

Decided to wait til tomorrow and feather the edges of the tape, then encapsulate the inside....

Not used to this cooler weather,the epoxy doesn't kick when you turn your back,have to wait overnight!! :roll:

I have a supply of used discs if you need them.

But looking great


I am getting really torn. The Admiral wants a little daysailer. I want to build another big mahogany. I need to build a fishing rig. Midnight requires attention. Ya'll are killing me - decisions, decisions, decisions - oh, my head is hurting!!!!

The choice is obvious from outside Dave....The Admiral gets hers first,then you can build what you want!!! :wink:

(PS: don't let her hear this,but if she's out sailing,she won't be nagging you while you work on your boat!!!!.....Now I'm sounding like Leakcheck!! :shock: :lol: :lol: )

Looking out across the lake with 30 knot winds, white capping and a number of sailings rigs making wakes - I am getting pressure for the helm

Sounds like you could build a 'mahogany fishing boat', like a Whitehall err something.
Oak is over rated, everything about it takes extra time; then it warps, splits or checks !!! :roll:
