Re: Cvincent's PH18

Here are a couple pictures of my progress. Smoothing out every nook and cranny of the boat is a job that requires a lot of patience.

Re: Cvincent's PH18

Thank you guys. I started trimming the inwale yesterday. I know the kerfs look sloppy I did them freehand with a skill saw. My table saw is buried in a storage unit.
