"Beauty job on those deck side hatch lips/frames. You could probably sell them."

"The little one is coming along. Mounted the gutters and decks and assembled hatches. Need to tape the deck seams next and laminate the inner gunwale."

"I layed up the hatch drains on the male molds and pulled off the first two. Still need to trim the edges and prep for under deck mounting. They should shed a lot of water to the footwell. I am making deck templates now. Also getting ready for The…"

"Put down one layer of 6 oz cloth over the biax on the bottom and rolled on a few coats of epoxy with graphite to finish it off. First coat of exterior paint will be next and then flip over for interior work."

"Put on a skim coat to smooth out the sides for paint prep and started on two different size molds for hatch drains. The drains will be fiberglass, vacuum bagged on the molds."

"Laminated one side of the outer gunwale. Takes a bit of patience and a lot of clamps to keep it positioned with that curve in this little boat. Great point about the bottom biax Shawn. I will definitely cover it with 6 oz to avoid that problem you…"

"those lil ones are awesome. I did one layer of 17oz biax on mine as well.  If I did it again (and when I redo it), I will add a sacrificial layer of either 6-8oz plain weave or some burly woven roving.  The exposed biax threads will…"

"Applied 17 oz biax to the bottom wrapped 2 inches over the side and followed that with one layer of 6 inch wide, 12 oz biax tape at the chine and 2 layers at the bow and stern offset 2 inches. Next phase is to laminate the outer gunwales with 2…"

"Some 1/4 scale dories materialized a few days ago. These will get electric motors, rudders, and r/c controllers to roam around local lakes. The design plan for the little guys came from Roger’s book. The mini dory got flipped over and is…"

"I'd argue that one could use 1/4" panels for the sides and bulkheads on even a big boat.3/8" decks depending on how much you'll walk on them and how much space between framing supports.  My 1/4" deck is a bit light on…"

"I like the idea of 1/4 inch plywood for everything. If I build a smaller version, that would be my choice. A solo dory that could easily be put on a roof rack would be really sweet. Certainly possible with a bagged carbon fiber and Kevlar shell off…"
