...approximate rivets to go and Doug( MrLeft8) can come out of the bilge. :eek:

Lisa looks on after a knock out hammer wack during a riveting session this afternoon. ;) With a little, luck, recovery time and some more wacking of copper maybe we will have a spring launch. :D

Is that a glove on the stemhead? Good Idea! ;)

(Pretty boat, btw, design?)

THANK YOU LISA AND JACK!!!!!
Yes that's a glove. It's there to cover up the bloody hand print I left there...
It's a Catspaw dinghy. I started it last March first. Got to this point on April 20. Jack helped me rivet about 7 frames back in early May, and it's been sitting drying out in the sun ever since.... Nothing like all those friends who always say:"I'd LOVE to help you rivet your boat, I can't do it this week, but call me another time....."

ChadYeah...... It's nice to have enough hair to cut Chad! ;) I'll send you some when I do my yearly hair cut and bath, and you can paste it on your head, and relive your misspent youth! tongue.gif

What's the hammer doing in your right hand? And save some of that hair for me. It's the colour I used to have.

Very nice looking project! I s'pose I shouldn't look at such, as it makes me want to add it to the list... Of projects that is! smile.gif

Keep up the great work! smile.gif

Great looking boat. I once had hair like that. But you know what they say . . . grass doesn't grow on a busy street. ;)

Now that you've got your boat rivited your crew can come over and help finish stripping my canoe and sanding it, than we can finally install those rub rails on the weekender, while we got a crew working on finishing the bar at the deck, oh and maybe someone can go ahead and put that new starter on the truck. Just can't do it on Sunday since I gotta watch football. ;)

Seriously though great job and once again I can't wait to see the finished project.
