Will be gluing up transom and stringers tonight, using Gell magic as the glue. Saturday morning puzzle joints on hull parts, gluing with just epoxy, no filler.

Install molds on strongback, transom and stringers will be ready.

This is going well, can't wait to see the hull panels on jig. Got wire ties and nails for spacers.

Lots of great information and photos from the other builds, will be fun showing off my boat!

Better slow it down a bit or we'll expect 2 finished boats for next years meet. Keep up the good work. Mike

One at a time... The (keel) hull parts, puzzle joint was glued using JUST EPOXY per the writeup. There was enough of a gap, I would have thought you should use GelMagic? I was in a hurry to use the epoxy on the puzzle joint, I for got to take a photo of it.

Stringers are ready for mold setup, GelMagic is great!!
Transom is built and sanded, looks like I should hang it on a wall as art!
