    WOW! Nice fitup on those quarter knees! Take care of that wrist...if you don't let it heal rowing will be a pain and you'll just have to sail everywhere

    Thank you! I'm cutting these out of the last 8ft of the last board of a ash log we had sawn into 5/4 boards, I guess about 25 years ago, It's weird my right wrist is sore because I'm left-handed. I can only guess it's from holding my cell phone for too many hours as I play stupid online games!

    And this is all for decoration... functionality of it on this little boat is hardly necessary...

    Cut it too long and it still came out ever so slightly short such is the difficulty with converging angles orzit compounding angles 🤔😰😨😳

    The story of my woodworking life...I cut it and cut and cut it and the damn thing's still ​too short!

    I hear you on that you Hugh! That's the nice thing about doing this stuff online you don't get to see the mistakes unless I want you to see them!

    Someday I need a vertical clamping IE tenoning jig for the table saw but I'll probably never get around to it, I feel safer doing it horizontal with the dado blade or multiple cuts.

    Port and starboard! Call the fit final! (Still need sanding, gluing & fastening)

    Bow, port & starboard. Bow & stern starboard both have straight grain, I didn't want to keep hacking into my last board just to get the diagonal grain in the corners.

    Well that's it! No more parts and pieces to make it's time to finish her up!

    I used up the last of my graphite powder to coat the dagger board and the rudder but they need more, guess I could start grinding up pencil leads 🤣

    I don't want to epoxy glue the knees in the corners of the boat, will get some 1.25" bronze screws because I don't have any, but as I write this I'm looking for paintable clear caulk, or should I just use thickened varnish as in days of old?

    Screwed.. not glued.. (yet).
    My local West Marine didn't have any bronze screws the hardware department. 🤣.

    Brass for now. Already twisted one off arrrg. Using wax, the right size drill and countersink they're still tight! Going to have to do what I've always had to do; run the exact same screw in steel then put the brass one in its place.

    Just a little planing and sanding to get a preview 😍🤔I think it looks very nice!

    WOW! Just WOW! Can't wait to see finish on it. You're painting the hull, right? Leaving the woodwork bright?

    Thank you! Yes, still going to go with that sandalwood tan color, going to leave the sheer strake bright,

    I don't want to leave the inside bright but any color will still reflect sunlight.🤔


    Jusncase yall are wondering, yes I have enough clamps! I have more that I left in the Ducker when I retrieved most of them.
    Ran steel screws in the holes, two of brass still broke even with wax on them,. I'm taking the time to make sure all the screw heads or just below the surface I am not going to plug the holes I want the screw heads to show. Again I have to remind myself they're only there to give it a traditional look.

    That'll look nice I'm at a loss fo interior colors, too. I need to repaint my Shearwater and I think a satin cream will work for the inside. At least it's a little boat, so it won't reflect a lot ​of sunlight. Leaving the thwarts bright?

    A lady should never have shiny knees! We'll make an exception in this case. 😚 just a sealer coat, basically because I'm going to be reaching over the rails a lot.

    You can't put it off forever Denise you are going to have to paint that boat soon. If I were closer I'd come over and help...

    I'm getting there Chris! I did get a sealer coat on the rails and I did a coat on the sheer strake.. used a 3in wide sponge roller,I was very pleased with the results! (instead of using a brush.)

    I just thought something else I can do to take me away from painting and varnishing! Make a flush recessed frame in the top of the daggerboard slot! 🤣

    I'm also wondering what to do with the plank fillets, almost nothing can make them invisible, adding more fairing compound may just make them uglier instead of better

    Holding off on paint, It's going to be a very humid week, the marine spar urethane which I've started using on most things is dry on the ash, it's just a little bit tacky on the epoxy coated plywood sheer strakes, but I think it will be okay.

    I did a little bit of sanding on a couple of the fillets, NOT FUN!

    My right wrist finally stopped hurting! I'm not looking forward to doing whatever it is that I did before, that made it hurt for almost 2 weeks, what's really weird, is it was my right wrist and I'm left handed!

    Took off the rough & high spots with, 36, 80 & 100 grits. Power just starts taking plywood off too fast. Then, went with fairing compound, just checked still soft but looks more like fair joints now, will see how it sands next.

    Arrrg what a miserable job! (Fairing concave shallow vees) piling on fairing compound is not the way (well not my way), sand and fill, sand and fill, sand and fill the third and last time hopefully! right now I'm on the second!

    It is hard to tell in photos, fairing compound is the answer to getting these inside joints nice I can only do about an hour a day but I'm getting there! Recent decision, is to paint inside hull same as outside, leaving thwarts and doublers on the transom & bow finished bright.

    I can't help wonder how the inside joints would look had I assembled the boat panels, my guess is they probably wouldn't have been any better (or worse, that's the part about stitch and glue I don't like, but it's not terrible to look at.

    H20 reveal..

    Some of the planks have an inward crown to them I guess that's what happens when they are coerced into the curvature of a boat, you would think they would curve outward but they don't.
