I don't think I'd go that far.

Someone had a tagline, "A little bit of putty and a little bit of paint, makes a carpenter what he ain't!".

I resemble that remark.

Hey Bill, you are making some serious progress. Maybe there is something to this retirement thing and I'll have to find a way to try it out!

The Bartender is starting to really shape up and I love the lines. Thanks for posting an update.

Update. I have done a few less photogenic things. But, this will give you an idea.

Well, it has been a while. I have been working on the boat. But, I lost a week painting at the condo.

I've started the helm. I've added a hanging locker and shelves, may be drawers later. Those bulkheads are a PITA. They fit dry. When I went back in there was no way they were going to fit.

Maybe expansion. But, you'd have to hit this thing with a truck to jar it. It is really solid at this point.

ok then probably expansion. what has the humility been like there. and are you using kiln dried or natural dried material also what type of wood is being used for the cabinet.

Bill,

I know what you mean about the difference between dry fit and final fit. I've had to practice the adage measure twice cut once at least a dozen times in the same area and on the same parts. I get them wher I think they need to be,and then later when it comes time to put them together, guess what. More fitting needed before I can do the task. Case in point, my keel and stem and keel and transom connections are not quite where I want them yet. But they were at one time!! :roll:

Anyway, your boat is looking great. It appears that you have the same problem as me in that you cannot get far enough back to get a good overall shot of the boat. I'm looking forward to seeing yours when you roll her out for the second time.

Add to my problem that my cabin is 12" to 15" shorter than yours, length. I started this as a day boat. Now we're trying to make it a trip boat. I think a stretched Vera Cruise would have been a better choice. Too late now.

I know what you're talking about Bill. I actually think that the cabin is still going to be small even on my boat. Granted, it is not stretched, but tight nonetheless. I've since found other designs that I would like to have built as well, but I still feel that this was the right choice given my garage constraints. I just hope I can get planing tools down by the stem and breast hook when it comes time to do that. I may have to remove drywall to gain a few extra inches.
