Re: Drift Boat Build Nearing Completion

Flipping the boat terrified me but with a couple buddies promised beer for the Broncos game, we got it done successfully. One small day for boat building, one giant leap for me, and a terrible loss to the Indianapolis Colt's.

Re: Drift Boat Build Nearing Completion

Sheers were a pain in the but I finally did it correctly. I cracked the scarf 3 times before doing it correctly and then cracked the actual lumber twice before steam bending and attaching it correctly.
