« Part 10: "Slow but steady" Part 11 of Building a 25' Ply on Frame Cabin Cruiser series Part 12: Beginning the c/l installation »

Still not feeling well but a little each day and we’ll get there. I am using tie-downs to accomplish three goals: secure the boat to the jig, reinforce four wheels (the wheels are strong enough but my screws aren’t!), and level the frames.

I secured a tie down to eyes screwed into two wheels.

Because this is done on both sides, I can level the frames not only front-to-back but side-to-side. Everything will be as square as I want it to be.

Looks like good planing!! It should be very straight.

I have been wanting to do the same thing for years. Mostly so I could fish again and have something big enough so it would not hurt my back and neck setting for a while and still having some comforts of home to.

How are you going to do the shell or outside of the boat? Do you have any plans?
