      Good to have you aboard TDF, and yeah Arch, im a glutton for punishment I guess, but at least theres no poly to grind

      I have an early 80's 7.5 hp tiller I was using on the 10' alum boat. I started it up yesterday and it ran for a bit but sputtered. Im hoping to sea trial with that, then look for a 20 or 25 hp..if I can find a deal...I don't think the 7.5 seahorse will plane it...but we will see,

            I'm really looking forward to when you do the Donzi, but this one is neat too. I've been following a guy building a huge 50' Carolina for a year, but he doesn't post enough up close and in-progress shots. We can almost reach out and touch yours.

              Im looking forward to the that too, even more so as I progress thru this......but its a learning curve GW

              So I glued and screwed the lower battens at the stem......and readied the mid and upper battens, leaving the stem connections to last.




              I used Gorilla Glue for these connections due to ease of use...

                            I might have missed it, but are the templates sacrificial? You're going to have to cut them up to remove them I'm guessing.

                              Thanks Arch and KC, its starting to take shape now

                              Sam, so far its all inexpensive lumber...the battens are pine, the stem is douglas fir, the ply for the transom 3/4 and bottom is 3/8 bcx - the b side gets glassed the c side faces the foam core...the sides will be skinned with 1/4 underlayment which supposedly has water resistant glue...ill coat all the wood with epoxy before I cover with skin.

                              GW, the plans say u can leave them in or remove them, im removing them so I can lay out the interior as I need....they are just screwed in to help them conform to the shape, ill remove the screws right before I lay he ply.
