John , I really like this little boat , did you add some of what looks like weathering effects to the (bulwarks ?) not sure if that's their proper name and to the stern ? looks very authentic to me at least ( I'm a very green beginner )  and if you did add some weathering , did you consider adding it to the seat planks ? wear marks to those planks would up the realism (imho) and I really like the lobster trap ! the mischief maker in me imagine's a lobsters claw sticking back out the hole as it's trying to escape 🙂 ( may not be the look you're going for though )  Cheers .

“Weathering” was not my goal, keeping things clean enough to apply stain and poly only was. Basswood has varying effects on the stain. The seats are are Mahogany as are the seat risers and rail. 

I like the outcome. 😎


Thanks for taking a look and your comments.
