    NICE! My uncle built his entire kitchen out of cherry, but it sat for several years with no doors or lower drawers 'til my aunt put the house on the church "Tour of Homes" and forced his hand.

    The thing about building cabinets is the only thing that shows; is usually the fronts which is why particle board has made such inroads into cabinet making,

    Didn't do much today, playing with primers, thoghts I've been having;

    Thin the blue topside and use it like a primer for the rustoleo.

    I found 1/4 can of 2000e bottom barrier coat I know that would work.

    I also have some rattle can Rust-Oleum self etching primer, sprayed some of that on the boat getting favorable results

    I've been following your build with interest for some time, Denise, and want to add my vote to those who are enjoying and learning from it, particularly because you are free with both the photos and your doubts about process. Its all giving me heart to tackle my next build and know that I will be able to make it work.
    Thanks, and happy sailing when the day soon arrives!

    Thank you Dale!
    Guess I have some good news about the Rust-Oleum paint, success?! Test patch is about 4 or 5 days old, it did sand off and made dust without too much clogging of the sandpaper so, I guess I'm going to use the Rust-Oleum cheap stuff rather then $50 + marine polyurethane.

    I'm starting to feel frustration with the slow hardener and I'm about to go pick up a can of West resin, I have plenty 205 hardener.

    Still sanding ...

    Spar bench spar? Or bench spar, bench? 1/2" round over, 1-7/8" square... Not quite happy = hand planing to make the mast round.

    Love dat bench!
    Photo from the book, I don't like their "drill a hole and run the line through it" I don't think so! Going to make a slot and install a sheave.

    The blank was 1- 7/8 square, 1/2" round over bit didn't quite do what I hoped it would do, which means I have to plane it into a round configuration 😠🤔

    What does it mean when the spars are getting varnished?

    Do you have a sail or the material to make one?

    Thank you Chris! Just taking my time slowly prepping the outer hull, the transom is badly scratched the fill in is smooth, but dark, so it will have to be painted, the sail is still in the bag, when the spars are dry I'm going to take it out in the yard, lay it out without the boat.

    I have beeholes for the halyards and have to say I'm quite happy with them. The sails are easy to raise and lower. This is probably because it's a standing lug. My only regret about the masts are that I didn't taper them. I did taper the butts which makes for very easy stepping but required a smaller hole in the step.

    I want to get the boat basically done, then I can refine some details, I'd like to taper the mast also. I did settle for a very rounded square at first glance it looks round but it's not,

    It may be silly to put a sheave at the top but it makes sense to me and it's almost as easy as drilling a hole

    Well, I'm at that point we're almost ready to roll epoxy on to the hull,. It is certainly warm enough now and l should get a more timely cure!
    Still undecided on, I'll call it the sheer strake. varnish only? or epoxy & paint?
    Decisions decisions 🤔

    Along with that, I'm also thinking of a small (possibly half round) rub rail on the bottom edge of the sheer strake.

    Daggerboard? It will rattle, do I want more snugness? Or leave it loose when underway? It has a good 1/4" side to side play.

    Definitely a varnished rubbing strip on the shear strake lap. Then decide if the sear strake with strip looks too wide for the varnish, personally I think varnish would look well.
    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    I was just at CLC not twenty minutes ago for their open house. While they did not have any prams out, I noticed that the tenderly and their new boat both have painted sheerstrakes AND a small 1/8 half round below it. Very good looking

    Yep, the paint looks well. However I would put that top rubbing bend inboard as an inwale. That one looks too heavy and clunky, basically out of proportion. Spoils the look of the topsides.

    For better or worse .. sealed! hopefully tomorrow late afternoon I can flip her over start finishing the inside!

    In rails I think Dusty or Hugh mentioned and I agree, on such a small boat when you basically have to sit on the floor for any kind of sailing action, they're going to hurt your back,

    I have Alaskan cedar I might use for the lower rub rail , I also have some teak toe rail from a sailboat but I don't think that would look good because it turns its almost chocolate brown.

    my Sunfish (3-digit sail number) had a wooden daggerboard that had some slop from the factory

    they came stock w/ a flat brass spring to solve the rattle

    Very simple solutions thank you that's a great idea! Looks like I have the equivalent of an appliance like finish on the boat now, I won't say automotive it's not that smooth!

    I think it's looking awfully good, Denise! And I like the spring clip idea. I may incorporate that into my Skerry when I get a chance to put it together Right now I'm finishing up a commission for some friends and working on the loft in my shop

    4 more of these to do:

    Thanks Hugh! What kind of loft are you building there? look at the size of those timbers!!

    I just checked on the epoxy it is cured!: just slightly sticky which will dissipate.

    A week of on-and-off sanding... as they say "preparation is everything" 100 grit seems to be the "just right" paper,. 80 too aggressive to 220 to fine. I kind of want to paint the outside and just flip it once, but if I do that, it'll be almost a week before the paint is hard enough.

    Thank you! The two bolts need to be brass or bronze to complete the look 🤣

    and yes it's time to empty the dust collector, and it's only connected to the table saw

    Two bolts and a sailing rig Looking forward to seeing it! I emptied my dust collector and "LO!" and possibly "BEHOLD!"...it works again! I turned the top bag inside out and blew it out with air, but it really needs a good washing to get the fines out.

    Hmmmm.....I recall way back when I was a kid working on mt old El Toro I stood it on its side on sawhorses. Leaned it against the wall with a strap around it to keep it from sliding into my dad's car (it was kind of a little garage)...didn't even think about the possibilities of back-saving (at 10? riiight) but in retrospect.....

    the East Port Pram is on my list of things to build. The Take Apart version so it fits on the foredeck of my 23 footer. John Harris, the owner of CLC, was asked what boat he uses the most often. He has over 90! His response was the East Port Pram. It fits his small family and they can take it anywhere for a quick sail.

    Thank you! Would have taken a lot longer if I were building from plans and plywood sheets, but it's a pretty well engineered kit, very Joe average friendly!. My guess is two people could probably build one in a regular weekend and spend the rest of the week finishing it up with paint and varnish.
