I finally have had time to start on the Longboat. I found that this is a good re-starter kit for me - the last one was over 45-50 years ago and was never completed due to a whole bunch of things - mainly life.  I did spend some of that time building flying models and some small furniture so i have some experience with wood. I am not a great craftsman by any means, but I try and a I enjoy it.

 

To date I have built both versions of the keel just to see what I can do. I did build 2 versions of the half lap keel - the first not so good - the second is what I selected and I am now on my way.

 

I have the first 5 frames fitted and have the rest of the frames built and ready to start fitting. I did leave the transom off for the moment so I can rough fit the frames without breaking it off  - I'm sure I would.

I'd like to thank all of you for your build logs. I learned a lot about the tricks and pitfalls you all have found.

Also - Chuck for the great well thought out kit

 

Hope you all had a Merry Christmas and will have a great New Year.

Tom
