Sure beats the old 80/20 rule - you only get a total of 100% with that one! :lol:

Coming along nicely - the decks will take up some room but sound like a good idea for the intended use.

Laker 13 - christened and slimed (just).

At first it does not look like my math works but considering I went to Texas A and M you will understand it adds up just fine for me.

Did my end pours. It was a good thing because I had a pinhole leak in the bow.

The boat looked bigger when I stood it up.

I took the tv to a small retention pond in the neighborhood to help select the seat location.
Side note: I did not have my life jacket on but it was in the boat. This was very protected water that I could walk across.

It was a quick paddle but I will say the boat is manuverable. It had no trouble tracking and gets going quickly. Most importantly, I can put this on my racks on top of my pickup unassisted.

I need to mount the seat, finish sanding and varnish.
