    I’ve been following the blog in the boat looks great every time I use my belt sander it gets away from me and I get gouges in the cedar planking are you not getting any of those problems I’ve used a six-inch Bosch sander with a soft foam backibg and followed by torture boards to fair the hull

    Cmschallt, most of my gouges have been pretty shallow and small. I've been able to sand them out as I've faired the hull. Worst gouges came with my belt sander and 40 grit belts. The sander had to be completely flat on the planking and I learned to start at a 45 degree angle to the grain. Other than that I've been using higher quality sandpaper and changing out every 3 stations or so to keep the grit effective.

    Freshwater washdown, trying to see any color imperfections and hard lines that I wasn’t seeing before.

    First time visiting your build, nice job! I’m really liking the Albury and had I known I’d be living where we are now when I chose a design I might have built one.
    I’m considering having one built since I really want to get on the water and Ive got a catboat restoration to finish up.

    If I were in the market for a boat even remotely close to that type for a purpose even vaguely similar I'd be looking at an Albury. Looking good.

    Looks great! Hope we cross paths on the water real soon. Finish the bottom and topsides, then turn it over onto the trailer.

    Congratulations on this milestone! It's a great design, and it's been fun watching you work to bring it into being.

    Very pretty, but one thing hurts my eye. Unless you plan to finish the transom bright, I would like to see you fill in the corners of your transom cut out with a bit of a radius. Those 90 degree cuts in a boat with such beautiful curves.... Ouch. Otherwise I love it. Gonna be a knockout.

    Thanks Olddad. I agree, the motor cutout needs a little more of a curve.

    Good luck with the flip.
    I'm right behind you. Good to see your framework cradle thingy.
    I think I'm going to do something similar. Thanks for the ideas.

    Seeing the roll over, I was thinking it is nice to have trees.

    Wow! It's looking great!
    I was born on a wooden boat that I built myself.

    Awesome! It's so good to see a build of one of these here.

    I ordered study plans a while back, but my garage is only 17' square.

    Keep up the good work!

    Mike
