    Very Nice. I've been following along but don't have anything to contribute.
    What did you use to make this illustration?



    That's a nice looking drawing.

    That was done using Adobe Illustrator.

    Tomorrow will tell if I need to give it another coat, it looks OK, I don't want to obliterate the fabric texture. The color difference is because one side is slightly wetter than the other. The top coat will be Interlux Brightside- Bristol Beige.

    The stock for the cockpit coming is in and I'm gust getting started on assembling the 5-6 24 foot laminate sections for that project. Not much fun. A lot of waiting around for epoxy to set up. The tim boards and the rub rails are coming together too. Will have to check in with my osteopath… my right shoulder is killing me. Can hardly lift a coffee cup of a cold beer.

    Switch to drinking from a can so there's less wasted weight in the container? Looking wonderful.

    I'm not sure if I'm moving up or down with these boats. I currently own Jenny, but am building UNA.

    Una should be considerably faster.

    Looking very pretty!

    As just a curiosity question, is there a reason you went with traditional copper tacks for the edges of the canvas rather than S.S. or Monel staples? A staple gun is a good bit quicker and easier.

    Very nice. Will we see her swanning about the Mystic river at the WoodenBoat show? Just the ticket for showing off! Maybe sailing circles around the Marshall. Maybe it will inspire me to break out the racing rig for the ducker. Might be a good thing to borrow a trick from the Delaware boat sharps, with a quarter lift to each side of the boom running back to the cockpit as death on these old time rigs is rolling downwind and dipping in the boom.

    Working on installing the shear strakes and the rub rails. My step daughter offered to help, so we made some good progress. The next big project will be the cockpit coaming. Wish me luck.

    Deck Coaming is next. This is going to take at least a week, just to lay up with epoxy resin one layer at a time. OMG.

    Well, the alternative was to steam bend a thicker piece. Quicker, but you might ruin some expensive wood.

    Progress continues on the deck coaming. The exterior portion of the coaming will be finished tonight, on two more layers of marine plywood are left to be installed on the interior. That brings the total thickens of the coaming to three-quarters of an inch.

    When done with all those clamps, feel free to send them to Shubenacadie.

    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    Quarter-round for the coaming is installed. Still working out the details to finish off the top of the coaming.
