    Default a different kind of build thread

    thought i would show you guys how the sailboat building is going.

    7/6/09
    here is the lumber just after i unloaded it from the truck


    here it is after i cut all of the dimensional lumber down to the correct dimensions


    7/7/09
    i got all of the plywood cut to size and shape


    the mess in my driveway - notice i am laminating two boards to make the spars


    last thing i did yesterday was join the sides and bottom - good thing that pesky tank was out of the way


    7/8/09
    this morning i constructed all of the bulkheads - may assemble the hull this evening after it cools off

    Interesting project. Think you should have built it out of acrylic!
