This will be heavily glassed and painted on both sides, not worried about fir checking
which is better for stiffness and strength as a floor core material?
Decks are nearly complete and fill coated. Finishing details on the hatch lips. Flow coated the gunnels.
Looking damn good Sean!
Congratulations! That's a major accomplishment. And it looks like you did a fantastic job all the way!
I figure this thread deserves an update.
Took the boat out on a high water NF Flathead over Memorial weekend. Boat was awesome in the big water and high flows in mid-channel, but she was a heavy beast to try to land in micro-eddies on rocky shores.
But had a really wonderful weekend with two other dorymen. Eric, with whom I boated when I launched Great Falls brought his Don Hill-designed drifter.
My friend Brian brought his little 13' boat he built 10 years ago; I don't recall the design. He built it when his kids were small and his budget wouldn't afford a raft, and has loved it more and more through the years. It got me wanting a little boat!
