Day one of a Father and son project. This will be a cold mold one off at 40' OAL and 13'9" beam. Cat power. No frills, Blue water boat. This thread will be mostly pictures only. I want to focus on the work and Memorialize it with Photos only on this thread. Thanks, Ted

Having the stations cut on a CNC router at an Amish shop! Fit is perfect. Bow tie has a .005 offset. Taking me much longer to prepair the CAD file than to cut on the router.

Okay you're gonna have to work on the lighting situation ASAP in that beautiful barn of yours because I can probably speak for all of us - we want to see many many pictures

I will be better at posting, sorry about that

The ply wood is 3/8" SYP AC and is just the plug. Fir would have been better but syp is 1/3 less.

Little extreme but my thoughts are super fair plug = easier to fair hull

Hull will be from outside in

Ok , So I am totally lame at posting but we are back at it. My 13 yr old son is kicking some ass on this now. He planked most of the port side wile I was on the phone. What a difference a year makes.

I have a great idea! Tell your son to take the pictures while you are on the phone! We need more pictures! Looks amazing.

I'd varnish that thing and just leave it as is...........then tell people I have the sexiest garage in the world. That's picture perfect.

Worked every free moment of the first half of my life with my father and wouldnt trade that experience for anything in the world. Treasure that experience and keep posting pics! You are doing a great thing.

How can you be building a beautiful boat like that and have such a clean uncluttered shop ??

13 yr old boy named Ben with instructions to clean the shop each day or else!

Actually we have put most of our other gear in another shed so we dont have much in our way. Trust me it does not look like this often!
