    Very nice! Enjoying the ride-a-long, Walt.

    Thanks.

    I am closing in the gap at the bow. The angle of the strip on the bow side is at a sharp angle so here's how I cut it. I use the multi tool to cut the long angle and then the stationary sander to bevel it. I can cut one in a couple minutes and they usually fit fairly good. I am putting in stealers or wider sections of planking to avoid having a very narrow and beveled strip on the aft side.
    The angle of the sides changes greatly as I move toward the bow. The bevel has changed from 7 degrees at the stern to 40 degrees where the planks meet the sheer clamp. I use my Lie-Nielson block plane to cut the bevels on the stealers. This is one of my favorite hand tools that my wife gave me and she has given me several nice tools.

    Well I completed one side. The last few strips were really challenging. I have more to post soon.

    That'll do.
    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    Hello Walt,

    That photo shows a serious amount of work.

    Very heavy bottom stringers and a beautiful 'sweep' to the shear.

    You sure know how to do this stuff!

    Regards,
    Alan

    Thanks guys, I thought putting on the strips would be mindless and it was the opposite!

    I don't need to show the planking on the port side because it is the same as the other. I am near closing it in at the bow.
    We are preparing for planking the bottom which starts with cutting limber holes. We chose not to do that when the stringers were removed from the boat because we did not want to make a mistake. The plans show specifically where they are located. There are about 40 of them in the stringers some of them cut forward of the floors and some aft. I am using a router with a core box bit making them 1 inch wide and 1/2 inch deep. We are using a simple jig to guide the router and it works great.
    I built these sturdy supports to set walkboards on. They are a little overbuilt but there may be 2-3 people on them at a time. They are at the perfect height for working on the bottom yet not hitting your head on the shop ceiling. Also the same height as the third rung of my 4' step ladder.

    Hi, I have been working on this for several months and there should be more later.

    i've been in and out of the forum (more out than in over the last few years unfortunately) but love seeing these updates. i've just subscribed to your youtube channel and am looking forward to continuing to watch your progress. i'm in Maryland just outside DC if you ever need a hand with the project, building a draketail deadrise is one of my dream builds. -Justin

    Hello Walt,

    I was SO PLEASED to see your latest post AND to see that it included a VIDEO!!!

    I feel that now that I've seen and heard you, your project seems much more 'real' to me.
    I'll certainly be looking forward to your up-dates!

    You mentioned the word 'fairing'.... I'm working on fairing the bottom and top-sides of the little runabout I'm building. It's very hard work for an old man with a decrepit back. What a lot of work YOUR hull will be. I guess that's part of the reason you're thinking 6000 hours.

    Again, glad to see the video.

    Regards,
    Alan

    Hey thanks guys for the nice comments. I don't get notifications anymore so I had just seen the first one. The videos are a big effort but I have been wanting to do it for my other shop projects and the construction business for a few years now. For you guys it must be quite different to see and hear me versus just reading the words I have typed for the last 10 years. Yes I am getting old. I did the Youtube analytics and it said 53% of my 700 views were from Woodenboat! I have actually shot video for several more but rely on a 20 year old man to edit them for me. Here's one picture of the progress on the boat.

    That looks outstanding Walt. You’ve broken its back now, 3/4 of the way there.

    Walt, where the strips end on the stem how is your attachment? Glue or screws/glue? Is there going to be an outer stem to cover the end of strips?

    Thank you Justin for the kind offer.

    Allen, glad you liked the video. The stem area is unique. The strips are twisted, curved and glued together and after removing the temporary screws on the upper part of the hull it did not come flying apart! It will get 3 layers of fiberglass tape and then 2 layers of cloth over the whole hull. On the inside there will be a large fillet and 3 layers of tape again. The designer claims this will be stronger and lighter than other methods. It still seems unusual to me not to have a structural stem but that's why I hired him because he knows more than me. This boat is supposed to come in at 7800 lbs and we have a 23' center console that weighs 7600 lbs so this will be a very light boat.

    I was hoping someone would fix my picture in the post above as they have done in the past because I forgot how to do it.
