Thanks Jeff, she sure was part of the family, with us all day/everyday for 14 years straight!

The oar worked well as a prototype/practice for me to eventually make a new set of oars for my driftboat, it was a lot simpler than I had anticipated.
There are only two seasons in Vermont: boating season, and boat-building season.

I also respect how you leveraged labor out of a nephew who wanted to fish. :lol:
Absolutely! Luckily he did finally get a "trophy" brookie(14" or so) on a dry on Monday after getting skunked sat and sun. He had more luck without us than with us, go figure!

:doh:

Hi Jeff, very sorry to hear about your dog. I lost my workshop helper (supervisor) almost a month ago and it is very quiet without him. The new pup looks like pure mischief and energy as all puppies should be.

Thanks Alan and I'm saddened to hear about yours as well, I was jealous that your pup liked to hang around the shop, I would have loved that company in my dank basement! Pure Mischief and energy is spot on, he's perfect by that measure!

Spent the day laying out and prepping frame D. Took some time to decide exactly where the flyrods would store best, space gets tight quick. The large holes at the top of the frame are for the butt ends of the rods, the smaller holes are for the fuel line in one side and electrical on the other. The half circles are the scuppers. Long day just to get a single frame prepped but it also involved a lot of decision making so I'm quite happy with the progress.

Boat looks great, neat idea for the scuppers.
