« Part 4: Getting the boat waterproofed Part 5 of Senior Year Final Project: Boat series Part 6: Testing the Waters »

Welp after a lot of hard work, money, blood, sweat, and haters, I am finally done with the SS Swordfish Slayer 5000. As previously stated, I am looking forward to a fun summer out on the Allegheny doin some angling. Eventhough I am confident in my row boat, I will be sure to take all safety precautions necessary in order to prevent myself from drowning. It’s been a long journey building wood, and I think an 8 foot row boat was a great topping on a fantastic woodworking experience with Mr. Michael Santucci. See ya’ll boaters out on the wake.

Oh I get it you capsized first up !

Steve a word of advice:
A master craftsman does not post the pictures of his fine work sideways, .....take as much pride in your post as your workmanship.

Keep up the good work !!

well Steve, congratulations on a solid build. don’t forget to double check those spots we identified as potential leaks, and I would definitely put another couple coats of paint/finish on it.

+1 to what Rob said- ”a master craftsman does not post pictures of his fine work sideways

It was good to have you in class, and good luck at “Ahhh-bergg” in the future.
