    Spoiled by a lack of bungs. I initially thought they were big drops of water, but now I cannot unsee them.
    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    Bungs would have just covered up all those nicely clocked screws!

    If you would have a good boat, be a good guy when you build her - honest, careful, patient, strong.

    The screws are clocked! Pity they're stainless instead of bronze.
