You do a great job! As others say, you almost build two big boats, that's a hugh amount of labour. I think it's normal how you feel.
Don't forget, you're a great example for many others and due to this forum you will be for a long time!

Just keep going.

Cabosil and epoxy thicker than about 3/4" cubed or so will be subject to heating and cracking, so you might need to make those fills in a couple goes

Just be careful and pace yourself some. Many years ago I learned the hard way that if you burn both ends of the candle for long enough your body will slow you down one way or another :help:
I learned that already. I got chronic bronchitis from sleeping too little years back. Now I sleep more.

Re: Woods Skoota 32DM

I see in another post where you are feeling a bit overwhelmed. Hang in there it will come to an end at some point. Keeping up the good attitude and moving ahead is the biggest problem with big boat builds as far as I am concerned. Most folks just do not understand the amount of man hours involved. ...

Re: Eric's C21

I am a little jealous of this build. It will be a kick ass boat when done and about 15% of the work of the Skoota dm.

I am feeling a bit overwhelmed these days.
