Things are a bit slow with the boat-building these days, but have at least managed to get some color on the inside of the hull.

Small steps will get you over the finish line. Looks nice.

Been busy making planer shavings lately. Lots of fairing to get the barrel looking right. Think it is decent now, so the sub-deck is in place :)

Looking Great! If we could only reconstitute all the shavings and dust back into usable lumber. Or even the cut off pieces. Sigh!

Thanks guys!

It would indeed be nice to use the shavings, chips and dust for something good. It feels kinda backwards to put so much nice material on there, just to remove it 😅 I guess it could be a good fire starter if nothing else.

Adding, then removing, more material. Have put on a mahogany filler outside the sub-deck. Will then use the same veneer thickness for the cover boards as for the decking in general.

Have also cut out the engine hatch from the sub-deck.

Looking good, it's coming right along! Cutting out the hatch is scary.

Thanks Jim. Yes, it was a bit scary, but I crawled underneath to mark/drill the four corners of the framing and cut after those marks, so was relatively sure it would be ok (after having measured a couple of times from the top as well, of course 😉)

A bit of progress up north; coverboards in place.

Nice! I love vaccum bagging like this, you should have a void free bond there.
