I think my son Noah is tired of waiting for me to finish my Atlantic Skiff, so he said he wants to build a boat to go bass fishing at the local electric only lakes. I really didn’t want to start another build till mine is done but he said he would do it himself. Well he is 9, I’m not going to let him use power tools so I have to help a little. Friday we started with to layout board then yesterday we scarfed the boards we need and today we put it all together and got the plywood on the sides. We are using all the leftover wood from my boat. Hopefully the weather stays nice and by Saturday we can fiberglass the outside. This boat is going a little faster than mine.

Well we got it fiberglassed, flipped, and the inside epoxy coated. I can’t believe he is actually sticking with this. He was pretty excited we we flipped it.

Every year I say this year but, I believe after almost a decade it could be finished by this fall. Maybe when Noah is done with his he can finish mine.
