Debbie,
I can't believe you let Warren take your boat out for the first time all by his little self. :shock:

Well, since you did I guess I need to study the above picture and do a safety checklist like I did at the beginning of the build. :roll:

1- fire extinguisher- negative
2- throwable floatation device- negative
3- white knuckled grip on side of boat because he even scares the daylights out of himself when he drives- check
4- life jacket- negative
5- wife installed back off device on left hand in case he runs into Ken's new rub rails- check

Hey, what am I doing!!! If the Admiral feels it is safe for you to take her new boat for a spin around the garage then you are cleared to launch. :wink: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Guys; I think the problem is , I don't see any floor space around the boat in the "garage"! He can't get out of the boat after he built it! :?

Well,got back to it today

Cut some pieces for the foredeck cap (not on the plans)....needed to come back to a certain point,and didn't have a wide enough piece to do it, so I'm making a joint down the center
IMG_0276.JPG
IMG_0275.JPG
Made a piece to cover the backside of the breast hook
IMG_0274.JPG
The shear/rubrails will have caps as well as the stern quarters

Boat with seats temp installed
IMG_0277.JPG
IMG_0280.JPG
Bow seat/storage with round access hatch....I didn't want to trap water with a sealed compartment,so I made it open at the bottom
IMG_0279.JPG
Stern bouyancy compartments/storage/seats with access hatches

The top of the stern seats and the bow seat are not glassed in yet as want to encapsulate and paint inside while I can access easily

Hope to get a little bit done tomorrow

Keep up the great work Warren. Looking forward to the updates, sure makes it easy to see the next steps we need to do for our skiff.
