This is a dumb question, but I gotta ask. Glue the three 1/2" meranti for the transom before or after stitching to hull/stringers/sides?

The first few months ...

Re: Xf20

Regarding the black boat, it was indeed one of the models I used when building my boat. I relied heavily on Richard's build as well, as he was a little more detailed on the posts :D But with the black boat, I think even Ken would agree that it might have a little too much "stuff" on it.

Re: 2016 Southeast Builders Meet- Homosassa, FL Oct. 21-23

Hopefully someone got some pictures of it. Another greet meet and some excellent food...perhaps the best we've had...thanks David!!!!!! T...

Just in case anyone hasn't checked, the weather this weekend is going to be phenomenal. Saturday is going to be gorgeous. I venture to say we couldn't ask for better conditions.
