Using painters tape to secure carbon paper works great, just enough grab and can be removed easily.

Sorry for the pictures, when I submitted them they looked correct. Trial and error I guess,

Yes and I do have some more pictures. I will get these posted ASAP. I have done some additional work and have found a wave runner trailer that works great. I changed out the 3" neck for a longer piece to accommodate the 13' boat.

That design is so cool. You achieve a "boat" in such little time and materials its great for keeping the builder motivated. And in the end its an awesome, fast, fun, great looking boat.

Caveman,

I love what you have done here so far. Nice work! I'm cruising the forums garnering inspiration the likes of which you are providing, to eventually take the "plunge" myself.

Keep going, it looks great! I'm liking this design.

This is an excellent boat for first time builders which I am. Once you decide, Just take your time. Do a lot of reading and start gathering up your materials. I found in Illinois that Menards and Home Depot had all wood that I needed for this project. Good luck,

I love how quickly these stitch and glue designs come together.Can you imagine what a traditional boat builder form 100 years ago would think if he were to see this! The Bingo looks great. If I were to build another boat, I would seriously consider a stitch and glue design.
