G/Day well needed to get the water line marked so i could bring the 6mm ply to it and after the shaft holes go through i can glass to the water line, so being the curves it has i thought of a rotating laser level most were around the $300.00 mark no way i am only going to use it 2 times thought of hiring still to dear and i needed it for late afternoon so 2 days hire, so i found a new one on eBay for $50.00 and it worked a treat had both sides done in 30mins..........

Hi John,

Progressing nicely...looking good.

Double and triple check that water line, i thought I had it right and was about to spray my undercoat and done a final check and realized i was out.

Glad i done a final check.

Bit of slow going for me at the moment but very happy with how things are turning out, by slowing down a bit I have changed my mind on a few things and think they are for the better.

Happy building.

Jamie

G/Day yes Jamie this is just a rough water line mark so as i can finish the ply to and put 1st plank off Mahogany on so i can glass the bottom, ok my ply arrived so the full sheet went down now putting the ply planks on to the W/L mark then i will drill prop hole and rudder hole, getting the center by going underneath and drilling 1/8th hole where rudder and shaft holes will be through the hog
, also in my spare time i made solid Mahogany windscreen brackets and routed the slots and temp piece of material was used for depth ...John

looks great, Don't forget to put another block of wood on the inside to stop the bit wandering when it breaks through :)

John; Thanks for the pictures. Explains how you were obtaining clamping pressure as I couldn't figure it out in the first photo. I'm certain others will follow your lead. There are always some inventive clamping procedures in building a boat. (Sand bags?)
