    Hello! My aluminium boat project will wait for a better and bigger place to be build. I the mean time I did a small renovation and modification to a small fiberglass half cabin boat. Main use is fishing. It alredy has been used one season and I'm quite happy with it, even that it's a small boat. But it's easy to trailer and lauch on little less good ramps.

    Here the build videos. You are welcome to like and subscribe. :)

    Nice project! You changed quite a bit on that boat. Thanks for sharing :)

    Also interesting idea using stretchy nylon to create a shape for glassing haha.

    Thank you. :) The nylon trick is an old one from when we made car speaker boxes out of fiberglass. ~20 years back.:eek:
