Hi Matt i have put some photos in photo bucket to show my progress ,can you please tell me how to put them in here or retrieve them for me .I was held up due to the floods here in coffs harbour 24 inches in app. 10 hours .the flood water
ran straight through my garage and i virtually had to start again as all the panels i had cut out had water and mud damage . I will be glassing her tomorrow if its a warm day and then i will be down to final items , such as coaming and varnishing .
I will submit final pics within the next couple of weeks
Matt your plans were so easy to follow , the last time i built a sailing boat was 50 years ago , i am now 71 years young
and eagerly waiting to wet this lakers bottom.
regards ray

Hi ray.
As you create your post in the text box, you copy and paste the image code for each image from photobucket individualy
One at a time....but you can put as many images as you want in each post.

I added a couple smaller pics to your post.

Your images are just a little too wide for the forum set up so that might be part of the reason it kicks back.

Boy what a shocker of a day here in coffs harbour .Gale force winds torrential rain .the side fence to my property has fallen over so it can stay there till it fines up .Any way i am going to see if i have come to grips with this posting pics caper . if i do this right the first pic is the bulkheads fitted
Image
so far so good ,the next pic is deck filleted and pre fit.
Image
Next coaming completed and rod holders pre fit
Image
Fourth pic is bottom glassed and 2 coats marine varnish.
Image
"Hey i am on a roll " because of the weather i did not want to risk any more varnish applications so i built my trolley

Image

Image
"whew" i think ive done it

Hmm....think we need some new smilies....

...how about a "round of applause" smiley for posting the pics

....and a "standing ovation" smiley for the quality of the Laker? :lol:

Great job Ray, from what I hear you'll need it to get to the shops over the next few days. The weather in this country has gone berserk this year - but at least there is some water available now.
