Hidden under the seat.

These are frame members for my boat, they will be
hidden under the seat when the boat is done, so
I thought I would show them to you now!

Mainly what not.

The gunnel's and hull are white as you can see.
The inside will be gray and the seats, mast deck
and floors will be natural. There will be an oak rub
rail as well. The spars will be red. The rudder and
dagger board will be yellow.

The fore deck and transom knees are recycled teak,
the tiller is a recycled pallet skid. And my home
made cleats. More trouble than they are worth.

That is really cool!!!!!! Are you using a pattern or just making it from experience. I guess my other question would be how do you keep it from leaking? Does the exterior get coated with something?
Great job!!!!!
Would love to see the finished product.

An old fashion product called,, paint.
Lots of paint. It is porch and floor enamel.
It hasn't changed in near a hundred years,
just no lead now.

If I have done all the joints right it should not
leak!,,?

I am using plans from the 1930's. Found them
on the net, free.

Hopefully I will have it done by spring. I have been
working on insulation the garage a little better so it
will be easier to keep it warm this winter.

I have some health issues to deal with so it goes
slowly some days.
