More progress

Continuing on continues on on the ongoing saga of the Correct Craft project boat. This week I actually went to a lumber yard and bought a 50 dollar piece of zebra wood that I shaved down and laid down on the deck (see picture). Some day this boat might even be finished!...knock on mahogony.

More progress

It's amazing what can happen when you have a head of steam and don't get sidetracked at the local bar.....laid down more planks. One bad thing though, the band saw blade snapped, gonna have to get a new one, what a bummer.

At long last, work continues on the Correct Craft!

Overcoming inertia, ...bigtime inertia, the kind of inertia that makes it seem that doing anything is a waste of time. Anyway, i suited up in my best work clothes and planed down some planks man! Not only that but glued down the first two courses of the bow decking! Hey!, if I ain't on a roll, then grits ain't groceries!

I spent this past week patching the bottom and varnishing the chines. It's done now and I can resume boating although I will be going out of town for a week and where I'm going there's no boating to be.
