  3. Painted, varnished

  4. Christmas shutdown is a wonderful thing

    Making good progress now - and the hard, scary, parts are done so I should be able to find time in the evenings to work on the boat rather than hiding from it.

    Here's a photo of the jig. You really don't need one for stitch and glue, but I could not figure out how to dimension the panels from the plans. So I made a jig and I'll just do stitch and glue over it. One idea occurs - perhaps I can use masking tape instead of stitches (since I have a jig to hold it on) so that I don't need to drill a bazillion holes in the boat. Should save time too.
