    Awesome, Knotty, way to go!

    If it turns out anything like the building it's being built in then you should have a VERY nice boat!

    A little more. 39-1/8". Essentially doubling the widest frame midships.

    Did bateau do the cnc? The extra footage should make a big differance. With material on hand and your prep work the build might go fast. I,ve followed you on bateau so I,m glad to see you get started. rick

    I believe it was one of the first kits cut for Bateau but not by them. I'm the second owner of the kit. The modifications likely won't be easy. We'll see. Thnx for looking in.

    Assembly table. 24' x 4'

    Longest panel will be approx. 32' so it'll be sticking out the door! :(

    Nice work. It's wonderful to see things actually getting built instead of just argued about!

    Ah, a STOOL! Fantastic idea for a workshop accessory.

    Nice work on the panels. Is the whole boat ply/epoxy?
