    WOW! The pictures are breathtaking -- the boat looks nice too -- thank you for sharing.

    There is an issue with the link, but this should work: https://photos.app.goo.gl/9d8VmqV2zEGfxeEp9

    Nice pictures and thanks for sharing! You must have antifreeze in your veins or a very warm sleeping bag!

    Lake Powell is on the to do list but will most likely be a fall trip.

    Any idea on the faering final weight?

    Thanks,

    Woody

    Thanks Woody! No antifreeze in the veins, just two sleeping bags and a really thick sleeping pad.

    I chose heavy woods (Hydrotek ply, African Mahagony, & Black Walnut), which got me to 68 pounds finished. My choice of woods was, of course, completely at odds with my desire to keep the weight down, but... man, it looks good!

    Hello. I build a boat according to your drawings. Please write the dimensions of the panels?

    They are in the link https://photos.app.goo.gl/btZRsamk5w4eL1TL8
    Cut out the panels as drawn, then the image you attached tells you how to align the two halves for gluing up, I'm assuming butt blocks rather than scarfs.

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

    Thanks. The size of the plywood that I bought turned out to be 243.50, not 244
    It will be necessary to add 1 centimeter between the panels

    There has to be a better way. 10 mm should not be critical. I would suggest laying out the panels to the centre, and then butting them to fair the transition. I recommend asking Flo-mo what he thinks of this idea, as he probably has the best knowledge of tortured ply boats on the planet.

    A scale model would also help determine if this is a practical solution.

    0.2% on length should not make any odds.

    I was thinking the same thing. Using a station spacing of 304 or 304.5 mm instead of 305 should be fine.
