So I started on another kit but it proved to be a bit over my head so I have started with this kit. So far it has been straightforward. There seems to be enough plank work to get me ready for more advanced kits to come. I have NO experience and I’m building the kit On a limb . I know I have plenty of advice and help from this forum and will be using it...a lot. Please lend all the Crits and advice you can give me. It will be a slow process as I’m sure most of these type kits are but so far it’s been very relaxing.

My first obstacle happened. I was showing my wife and I ummmm...dropped it on the tile floor! Yeeeeaaaaa...not too happy but could have been worse, the dog could have gotten ahold of it.

So I drilled two long holes down the middle of the keel and inserted two cloth hanger wires as reinforcements and use wood glue to bind it all back together. We’ll see how good it holds. Fingers crossed.

Ok so I had a little time this evening and was able to get in a little planking to the inside of the boat. I used very warm water to apply heat and soften the wood and gently bent the planks and then clamped them to the frames so they can dry. The instructions are very vague at best. 8D11F626-814C-4B64-9C59-96BF509915C3.jpegB6D4BEB6-3B22-47AB-BBBC-48190D83CB4D.jpeg1F9CC185-4D9A-49B7-BB10-2737DD560610.jpegC8588D83-87D9-40C4-BF2C-F514A3202694.jpeg
