Welcome aboard. I have been in the process of building my boat for longer than I want to remember. However I am very close. I have 26 days before I want to travel to the 7th Annual McKenzie River Wooden Boat Festival. Just got my trailer last weekend. I have been doing sub-assemblies and finishing them as I go.

We would love to see pictures of your build.
