Damn man it's looking awesome. It will look even better with a little slime on it.

Tragedy and comedy in fishing are practically synonomous.It depends on who is doing and who is looking.

I nearly bought the same plans. Thank goodness I realized that I don't have the patience required to make the most out of a build like that.

Looks great, I can't wait to see progress reports. I'm a bit of a homebuilt skiff junkie.
A long long slow walk in the spartina gives you time to think big thoughts and put your mind back into order.

Thanks for the kind words gentlemen. It's nearly done. Hoping to put the final coat of paint on this weekend if the weather will cooperate. I have an appointment next week to have the game warden inspect it and give me the HIN so I can get it registered.

MWK, when are you headed to town? If I remember correctly, I can hit a driver from my back yard and hit your son's apartment. Shoot me a PM. If the weather's good, we'll hit the water. If not, we can hit the local watering hole.

Let me know if you're serious. I can tell you a lot about what not to do.



Had it inspected, titled, and registered this morning. I'm paying taxes on it so it's officially a boat.
