I’ve always wanted to try building a boat. I don’t think most people realize how much work goes into building one and the many complications involved. Nice boat, nice job!

I take it the “mosaic” on the bottom is intended to give the impression of stairs going down to the hold hidden below? Very clever, overall looks like a really nice job.

Nice build on your boat. I hope you don’t hook into those fish you have posted on the side or you will go for a wild ride in your new boat.

They are lot of work in just the design for strength..

Cheers, Jim

What a wonderful project. A boat is on my bucket list, though with the number of things on that list, the boat may be the bucket….; )
I love the downstairs “to steerage” …or perhaps the future engine room?
Enjoy your gift to self…it’s always a pleasure to have something you can use and enjoy you created that is uniquely yours. Very nicely done!
