Mr. Freckle's Ride / Wadefish 15'x32" Update 5/26

Post by LIGHT KEEPER'S KID » Sun Feb 15, 2009 8:35 pm

He thinks I'm going to ride on this pile of boards :roll: Well as you all can see we have started the measuring and cut-out. And I noticed Mr. Freckles doesn't have any splinters but I do :roll: We also have sanded all parts and dry fitted the Cockpit. Next update will be the butt-jointing and glue-up on the cockpit. Must say all of Matt's plans have been right on the money :wink:

Started the glue up on scuppers and cocpit framing,found a neet trick to gluing up the 1/4 round. Take a 1' 2x4 and put 2 screws in one end and put 1 screw in the other to put on the 1/4 round,works great :D Also cut half circles out of cockpit frame to allow one peice rods to fit in hull. Started the glue-up on the cockpit and tankwell panels as well as gluing the hull strips. Some minor trimming on panels but its going very well,but Mr. Freckles says he tired :roll: A dogs life :lol:

Looking good Mike, although Mr Freckles appears to have had too many beers :lol: .

I really like the figure on the "good" side of your ply. What timber is it - some kind of maple?
Cheers, Bob
