Looks great John,

Starting to take shape already....
I have gone a bit quite with my build as my wife and i are focusing on our fitness at the moment.
But still getting some build time in...
Have you got any shed space to build in yet or be outside for a while yet?

Looks good John. Do the staples pull easily with the blue webbing?

G/Day Bryan to answer you simply NO the reason i used the webbing was its free just cut with scissors
I only used the stuff to stop bruising the finish timber but if you stapled a certain way i believe you could pull both tape and staple i will give it a go

G/Day all well we have moved to the country the house is getting there along with the workshop and i have a huge undercover area now to build the boat, but as yet the boat is still in Sydney on a flat bed trailer waiting for the trip here, the reasons it is not here yet is 1) a lot of the workshop gear is still under the cover where i will continue building 2) the chances i get to bring it IE others to help it has been bloody raining, so i am hoping in the next 2 weeks i will have it here. I did manage to pick up a complete and in pretty good order and fully marinized Q Dodge 6 Cyc side valve engine and all the boats running gear IE skeg / shaft / rudder / log / steering etc so that was a goal kicked

G/Day well the boat is now in its new home and undercover at last so i can begin to get some more work done on it here is what i am up to, both sides of the bottom have now 2 layers of ply on, i will now get 2 side layers on, have drilled the stem for the boat hook and also have done the bulk of the steering wheel, the boat is on 2 dolly jigs so i can move it around and also lock it
