SHHH! :shock: That May be a birthday present for her for Feb!

One of Debbie's Christmas presents was seats for the skiff (and can be used in the Sea Ray as they are portable)

Actually, I'm waiting till it's done to see what style rod holders I install and where to install them.....probably the ones that go on a flat surface and put them on the front of rear corner seat chambers or on the transom like the ones in my Sea Ray

Oyster,Wasn't there someone that said that fish rods already have holders!!! :wink:

Ok since the top secret spy photos were revealed of tools used at the Hopes& Dreams Boatyard,some more were discovered at the Fla operation.

Could have just finished off the shears as is,but I decided I didn't want the end grain of the plywood sides to show,so we capped them...adds some strength to the rub-rails too I'm sure

Would have gotten more done,but the Admiral had me help put Christmas away early in the day(Noon...early??)

Will get some more tomorrow AM before sleep for work...should have the stern caps sanded and fit and the coaming caps fit to the stern caps

Pretty smart for a Pinellabilly. :lol:

Your skiff is coming along great Warren, your turn to return the ride at G5. I'll be in line.

You did it all wrong Warren! You made a template instead of going straight to wood. That way you could end up with 4-5 different trials before 1 actually fit.

Dang Amature!

One other thing...Debbie and I re-sawed the coaming caps from 3/4" X 4 1/2" x 4' pieces of Sapele by making two passes on the table saw.

We used a featherboard on the entry side,and Debbie received on the cut side.

We used a thin kerf blade,a roller stand on outfeed,and a straddle pusher block I made from scrap

Piece of cake,Thanks Oyster for showing me how to do this!! :wink: :D

And I still have all my digits!! :wink: :roll:

Warren - if you don't hurry up, I am going to add some shelves to it

Looking mighty fine though.

I always find cutting things too small then having to glue more wood on to recut really adds to my building pleasure. :D
