ok, that is looking more like it.

Your work is very clean.

Hi all,
Thought that I would post a pic to prove that this is a real workshop and that work does occur in there :D :D
I have started the fairing process which I am hoping to have completed by next week end so that i can start with my first layer of ply.....

This fairing is a little painfull seeing as I insist on using a hand plane..(Just think I have better control on what material I am removing)..

i did a good portion of mine with a jack plane too. quiet and i could work without being caught :lol: ....nothing wrong with that. plenty of time to get out the longboards when you are closer to fair :D

Hi Jamie,
What type of hand plane are you using?

Well I now have my father hooked on building a boat!!

He has asked me to order the plans for the Riveria for him..... he should pop up on the forum here soon as Old aussie....
I will let him introduce himself once he logs on.....

I have now completed 98% of the fairing and now only need to final sand and i will be able to start the first layer!!!

We are now starting to get quite a few of us building down under now....

That's looking fantastic!
Like you, I like the hand plane, although when there is 3/8" to come off I revert to something a little more drastic... :oops:
By the time I have built a boat, I'll be ready to build a boat....

God I love the looks of those hulls. I know the feeling of swapping jobs during a boat build. My boat was actually a great place to de-stress and relax... yes even when fairing... while learning the ropes at my new job.

I still remember putting on my 1st piece of plywood on the side of my hull. Brings the boat that much close to life, a real milestone that is just around the corner for you.
