Muscongus Bay lobster smack by macsparty - Midwest

Recommended Posts

Starting my first build log. I've already learned a lot perusing other logs, so hopefully one more on this gem of a little kit isn't one too many!


As you can see, I have the frames in, and the cockpit floor and transom and am getting ready to do some sanding while working up the courage to put the main deck on. It seems flexible enough to just glue down and clamp, or should it be soaked first?


I'm a notoriously slow builder, so if there are gaps in construction time, don't fret, I always get back to it!

I did one of these ages ago.  It's a pretty little boat.

Mine had blocking forward of the forward bulkhead.  The 'plank' ended at that bulkhead.  The blocking must stand proud of the bulkhead sufficient to continue the line of the planking, without being itself sheathed.  Check before you trim that blocking too far down so you won't have to build it back up to match the plank.
