:D I made short sawhorses and used long 2x12 planking around my hull so I could access bow and side decking easier.now that I'm inside pilothouse,I just use fold-up painter's ladder(short plastic one) :D

Matt:
In your post, you alluded to the Geronimo's deadrise. That got me to wondering. How many degrees of deadrise does that hull have at the transom?

I have no idea how many degrees it is. It is not flat but is definitely not as deep as a lot of modern production boats. The vee quickly deepens moving forward. I am excited to see how she will ride.

Yes, indeed, it certainly will be interesting to see what your ride is like. I really like the high freeboard aspect of the Geronimo design, and am hopeful that the overall hull shape softens out the ride on those days when there's some chop on the water.

Thanks for all the time you've spent documenting your build. I've been following it with interest.

I have no doubt that it will easily handle the afternoon chop typical on inland lakes.

You're quite welcome. It actually helps me to debrief by documenting the build. And the forum is much easier than maintaining an actual blog.

Today I glued up the second swivel seat and what I am calling a scarf joint on the carlings. No pictures but I'll get some soon.

As I modified my engine well "plug", it has been a great asset to be able to go back and see what I was doing the first time!

I have no doubt about that, Bill!

I will say that the carlings are not a simple matter. I am having to shim a couple of frames on each side to get them straight. I used a batten along the top of the frames to mark the cut and cut a little too much off. So I am gluing a shim to get them where they need to be. I decided to go with titebond 3 in this situation. Much quicker to slap together than with epoxy. I'm above the waterline here so I think it's ok.

Moving along nicely Matt. I had to do something similar on my Vera Cruise.

I finally got time and warm enough temps to glue on shims and the blocking for the carlings. Should be able to glue them on tomorrow.

The BIG news is that we will be moving to Indiana in about 6 weeks. So, we are looking for a house with a two car garage... (at least that's really MY only qualification.)

I saw on fb about your up coming move. Im in Brownsburg so youll only be about 45 min to an hour away. Ill still be recovering from surgery but if there is anything I can do to be any assistance please let me know. Lake Freeman and Shafer are nearby. Busy on summer weekends but not bad during the week. Oakwood Resort in north central Indiana has a wood boat show each summer and its a nice place for weekend boat getaways with the family.

We are looking forward to fine days of boating on Freeman and Shafer! Also not too far from old stomping grounds at Racoon lake. I'm sure the lakes are busy on the weekends. They are smaller and not as many compared to North Carolina. Although the lakes are probably just as busy here on the weekends.
