Why is that boy not sitting on the couch staring at a cell phone? Seems strange that he's outdoors working on building something with his hands, maybe get him some help?

Today we got the inside primed and the first coat of paint done. Hopefully tomorrow we can get a coat of the grippy paint and another coat of regular paint then the inside will be done.

Noah is not an inside kid. Even in the winter he plays outside. Building this boat is just something for him to do outside instead of digging holes or tearing up my yard. I’m happy that he enjoys working with his hands instead of playing video games.

Sorry a little behind on posts. All that is left is for the outside to be painted. The weather is unusually cold and it has rained almost everyday for the last two weeks. This week looks better so hopefully we can finish up.

Bottom and boot stripe are painted. A few finishing touches and it’s ready to fish. He wanted to paint it the same as my boat so I got the light blue and I had black. I thought a little black in the light blue would turn it dark blue well I was wrong. It makes grey so grey bottom it is.

And in case anyone didn’t know what a 9 year old named Noah was going to call his boat here it is. Tomorrow we will start to varnish the transom.

I talked to to state boat commission and they said maybe 120 days to ok the boat and register it. The electric only lakes may be out this summer but I got a few places we can go to catch fish so we’ll see what happens.
