Here is the latest. This weekend was about 6 hours of garage cleaning, and 3 hours of boat building. After so much cutting a person just as to slow down and clean the place. There was sawdust everywhere! The youth group at church are trying to raise money for church camp, so I paid one of the young men in the youth group to help with the cleaning. Man he must have spent 45 minutes under the boat getting everything swept out. He vacuumed for hours, organized, and really helped clean the place. My five year old was in heaven because he loves to run the vac picking up all the dust from the saws and shavings from the drill press.

The first picture of the frame is for the gutter for the front hatch. Then a couple pics of the the two 1/2 half inch ply that make up the deck for the splash well. I used stainless steel to get the glass to lay flat, and where the glass is I cut down the board 1/16 of an inch with an electric hand plane. I plan to make the deck of the boat all one piece in the same manor before bonding it to the boat.

It's taken me years to come to the view that time spent cleaning and straightening is an essential part of the job, not a detour or byproduct. On a smaller project I now consider the job finished only when all the tools are put away, floor swept, work table cleaned up- it's part of the job. The additional benefits are it helps me straighten up cluttered thoughts, and sometimes find that "thing" that had been lost or forgotten. It always feels so good once it's done! Some people are just born neatniks, for the rest of us it requires discipline.

Considering how neat your work is, I suspect you keep a neater shop than most of us. 8)

I agree with what you said Pee Wee. When things are clean I find a greater energy to work on the boat.

The work may be neat, but the floor sure gets crazy dirty! Thanks!

Here is a pic of the cross piece that will hold the front of the hatch gutter, and make it strong enough to stand on. I have since sanded it clean but this gives the idea.

Looking good. Your attention to details will make this boat awesome.

What type of wood are you using for your gutters?

Thanks Barry!

I have used dimensional mahogany and marine ply. I like how easy both are to work with.

Here are a couple more pics of the rail and gutter. The gutters have not been routed yet.

Well said PeeWee, when I made a living using hand tools daily they were also put away at the end of the day. Now that I am retired, they seem to stay out more often than not.

My 5 year old buddy caught him a nice perch and lost an amazing bass that broke off.

Then my 8 year old sweetheart caught a catfish! They had a blast. This was from a family vacation we took to East Texas.
