I do t know of any St. Johns in my family from michigan, but I can possibly claim the founder of Chris Craft in my lineage, I certainly will. :)

Hi Jared.
Congratulations on starting.
I just started my Gentry this week as well. I used tracing paper, then used the sewing spikey thingy to trace the curves through the tracing paper, and marked points with a sharp object for the straight lines. Seems to be ok, but wish I had found the Glen-L carbon paper first.

I made the stem first, as it was the easiest without worrying about cleaning up the Mahogany stock. I have 12 days off from tomorrow evening so hope to see some good progress.
By the time I have built a boat, I'll be ready to build a boat....
