    Hey Maximus! It's an oscillating tool with a narrow saw attachment.

    Looking good, gotta love big jumps of visible progress.

    I guess the name plunge tool comes from the ability to make plunge cuts? I have one of those too, very handy for lots of stuff. I used mine to make relief cuts in the butt blocks to let the chine logs and the inwales go through. It also has a nifty triangle sanding attachment that is good for getting into small nooks and crannies.

    Makes perfect sense. Those are handy tools.

    The boat is looking good. Very interested to see how you fit it out. When I finally get to my build, I'm seriously considering dual side consoles. Going to build a couple of scale models to work out the interior before committing to a full scale build.

    there is a half moon blade for those tools which will cut the bottom while runnung flatish along the side panel

    or you can use a router w/ a 1/4 roundover bit and a roler bearing on the bottom to get darn close to flush requiring only sanding flush

    What brand MDO are you using? My local Lowes has Roseburg Duragard which I thought was supposed to be a good on, but I see tons of voids in the inner layers of ply along the edges. I don't see any voids in your pictures. Wondering if they provide a lesser quality product than what they provide to true lumberyards? The cost is certainly less at Lowes.

    I'm not sure what the brand is, but the receipt from Curtis Lumber in Albany, NY says "Medium Dens Ext Good 2S". The price was $60 per sheet for 1/2" and $75 for 3/4". I hope this helps!

    I used a router that I mounted on a little sled with wedges that matched the angle between the deck and the side. With a flush trim bearing bit it worked almost perfectly. Just make sure all your screw holes are filled or you can gouge it (don't ask how I know).

    Any updates to this? I am hoping to build the 20' version one day and am thinking of MDO so I anxiously look for your updates. Building an 8' Puddle Duck Racer to use as a small one man pond fishing boat right now to get a little experience.

    I would have purchased the electric hand plane.
    I love the smell of fresh cut plywood in the morning.

    COOL IDEA

    as long as the angle is a constant

    butt i'll prolly stay w/ the 1/4 roundover even on a sled so the result will be more conducive to taping/sheathing over the edge

    No such word as prolly. It is probably.
    To get degrees on your keyboard just hit option zero. (70F example)

    The boat is moving right along!

    My garage is to cold, and I am skiing most weekend so the progress has stalled. I will be working on it this weekend, and in three weekends though. Keep an eye out for an update on Sunday or Monday. Thanks for following the build!
