Photos of the construction process.
Construction begins with the hull.
I used staple-less construction. It eliminates the tiny marks made by staples, but greatly increases the build time.
The final strip is placed in the hull.
The hull is fiberglassed.
The boat is flipped over and stripping of the deck begins.
Part of the deck pattern.
The deck is complete. It looks rather messy before sanding.
The deck is sanded.
The deck is fiberglassed.
The inside of the hull has braces so it didn't lose its shape during a move.
The interior is fiberglassed.
I used strips to build the cockpit coaming.
The coaming is fiberglassed.
The entire hull is sanded.
Varnish goes on the deck.
