Well it is going together now not sure if it is right though. Does the sides sit on top of the bottom or does the bottom fit inside the sides?

Oops the top panels were 9 1/2 inches to short. Had to cut and sand out splices and install new longer top center panels. I guess that is what i get when i shortened it up not sure how it happened when i did a cardboard mock up. I think i may have picked up the wrong center panel piece when tracing them out.

Well got the stitching done today . May have to put a few more in to try and smooth out some ripples around the braces not sure if they will come out when fiberglassing. I love the look of it and quite pleased . One ? is do you start the tack welding from the outside when you flip it to check for twist or do you do them from the inside to start. Going to start thinking about seating while waiting for fiberglass cloth. Here is a few pics.

I was trying to read the state on those license plates. Where are you from? I like those onions hanging in the workshop. Good man. Any garlic? Make our own jerky?

You're coming along on your boat nicely. Where's the gun turret going to be?
