After looking at Darrels boat today I am going to put a couple other boats on hold and build a ss@g Northwind . It should be pretty neat to paddle them side by side and see how they compare , Both are take offs of the Seawind that Verlan Kruger designed.
:shock: HERE WE GO AGAIN

The plans must contain a lot of forms to keep all those panels aligned.

Got all my forms marked and cut ,all the panels run through the planer
It is going to start looking like a boat shortly.
I love the planer it has saved me at least 2 days worth of sanding and does a slicker job.
Ron
Now the fun part starts

Yep been off for a few days .
Got her stitched up ,ends pulled and glued , part of the tacking done .
I sure like the lines of this boat
Image

The ends were a pain to line up. After I got them lined up I ran a small end pour inside to hold them

Image

I think the pine and some of the sap wood I used will look good
