    Phenomenal Gib! I showed my wife your pics and when I said you'd be painting it she sighed. I gotta admit, that'd look gorgeous bright, but for a "mobile campsite" it'd be waaaay too much maintenance.

    For Mother's day Lovey made us a peach pie. It's a real struggle trying not to overeat here. The summer I went camping I lost 17 pounds in 3 months going from 192 to 175. My own cooking never looks like this.

    5 layers of 7/16 AYC for the outer stem. It's tapered, about 4 1/2 at the chine by 3 at the sheer. Funny how that worked out, I didn't anticipate it, but I like it.

    One of my favorite parts of boat building is the odd bit of sculpting.

    Big Dory Build 9 004.jpg

    At the "garboard" there's 7/8 of strips, 1/4 of veneer, two coats of sealer, one layer of 10 oz., 2 coats of epoxy, one layer of 1/4, 2 coats of sealer, 2 layers of 10 oz., and two coats of epoxy. I've used over 10 gallons so far.

    Ken, the world class kayak builder and racer who posted earlier as Kennee, gave me a gallon of Interlux InterProtect 2000, an epoxy waterproofing barrier coat. That will go on the garboard next, about 3 coats, which is what's recommended, will use it up. I want to keep the water off of those 18/8 (304) staples for as long as possible. I read that crevice corrosion can only happen in the presence of moisture.

    Here's the second layer of glass. I used butt joints this time since there are 2 layers with the joints staggered. The glass being on the outside it won't add much strength but it does act as reinforcement for the epoxy which is there to harden up the cedar and make it waterproof. Then again, there being so much of it there will be strength added, not that it needs it.

    I like the way you shaped that stem.

    I forgot to mention the 2 layers of 3 inch 6 oz. tape applied to the AYC strip. The waterline can take a beating sometimes and it was easier to apply than the 10 oz that doesn't have a selvedged edge to wrap over the rounded strip and form a good joint with the glass above the waterline.

    Looks like I may not get away this summer due to all of the time spent cleaning up storm damage. I was hoping to get to go see this handsome fella, destined to be the next alpha if he lives that long. He's 2 years old now and may remember me well enough not to hide when I'm about and he may be moving on to start his own family pretty soon. I just like to slip in a wolf pic from time to time here on the forum.

    OK, that's all for now out to the shop to install the skegs and start the InterProtect.

    Nice garden Gib. I have one plowed and ready to plant but it's been raining every day for a year. Seems like rice might be a good crop. I'm tired of feeding the deer herd anyway I probably skip it this year.

    Fixed it.

    The stems are massive for sure. It doesn't need all of that wood except that I wanted a lot of gluing surface for the strips and then the outer stem needed to be that deep to look right.

    Re missing the wolves this year: any thought of a shorter, light load visit to check in? I get that logistics are daunting, but you've been out there before, with the tinnie...
    Bigdory looks great, your progress has been quick (quicker without the storm mess, but still) and I'll add to the voices appreciating your shop, place, and life choices!

    I love the wolf pics! And I think it's marvelous that you can combine your interests in boating/boatbuilding and wildlife!
    I would suggest you make every effort to visit your wolf friends this year; I'm at the stage of life where "next year" is far too uncertain...
    Thanks for sharing these aspects of your life with us!
    regards

    Gib, Recommended reading if you haven't already, "Never Cry Wolf" by Farley Mowat. All of your posts followed, always interesting, always educational. Thanks
