So tell me, why is it that misspelled words only show up after you make the post?

Oh, you can find the pics here:
(With a memory this short it is a wonder I get anything accomplished.)

Post away. I would like some feedback on attaching the panels. Your additions might spur add'l comment.
I salvaged the teak for cheap at ReStore. There had been something someone had built for their yard but didn't want anymore. They had been assembled it with nails and lag bolts that blackened te wood. It wasn't as big a problem that I anticpate in that I was able to manipulate the surfaces to avoid showing.
After teak beams were joined, I ripped and surfaced to produce 2 1/4" x 5/8" strips. The rabbet is 3/8" deep X 1/2" wide rabbet. I hope to find some holly which will be ripped 1/2" X 1/2" square. This will leave it 1/8" proud after inserting into the rabbet. This process is as per Bingham's book.
I'm in a bit of a quandry as to how I will attach outboard sections. Bingham suggests gluing in place for strength. I fear that after I do that I'll have to pull them up for some reason. In which case that would be a headache and ruin the panels. I don't know if my fear is warranted or not.
The cross beams and carlins are oak. I understand that screws will become fixed after a while. This, of course, defeats the purpose of using screws. There are those metal inserts. While this would make screws easy to remove, I wonder about the strength of the beams after they bored and the inserts are installed.
The midsection panels will be removeable. I have not decided how to do this either. There are those expensive, fancy 1/4 turn fasteners. But at $18 ea, the expense adds up fast.
I'm interested in seeing your work and interested in advice on attaching the sole.

I was just wondering the other day how your lady was comming along. From the pictures it looks like you've got quite a bit done. Good job. Hope all is well with your project.

Good to connect again. Well finished the 2nd bulkhead aft of the V berth. Raised panels looked good on one side. The back side was not so nice. So, I bought a new cutter for interior doors. I'm going to try again. Each side will have raised panels. I started cutting rails and stiles this afternoon.
How have you been. How is your project?

i've been good. Although my project got a little delayed this last summer due to house projects and such, i'm just about done as of now. I'm down to trimming out a few pieces around the seat and a couple more strips for an interior rail and then the inside is ready to paint. I expect in about 4 weeks the boat should be ready to launch. It will probably take me another week or two to rewire the trailer and get it road ready but, in short i'm just about done. Good thing since we are about to start a house addition and i will need my shop space back.
Glad to hear you are making progress. I'll have to stop by sometime and take a peak. Take care.
