Yay!!! I have a boat in my shed

Finally all planks on. It is officially a boat. Bung in and centreboard in and it would float. The rest is details.
What a good feeling to see it in the shed. We put the final forward top plank on. We also sanded and epoxied the seat tops ready to put in tomorrow. They seats needed a bit of work were we glued hard wood onto the leading edges. My new Makita orbital sander with a vacuum is awesome. I can see the next week or two will be filleting and sanding interior ready to paint. Then we will flip boat.

Dark, wet and cold Canterbury Night. Lucky got a great heater.

Final plank on. Seat top is beside boat ready for tomorrow

Just some filler, a little sanding and a lick of paint aye?
