It just looks better and better. What do you use to fill in between the boards?

Thanks for your comments. The boat drawings call for 7/16 thick planks. I guess it is for the weight considerations and I’m going to use a yellow seam compound for the feature between the joints.

Great work. I can’t imagine how much satisfaction one derives from building or working on beautiful boats.

Thanks, I was expecting it to be pretty thin. They looked thicker. I’m happy now.
Keep us posted. It’s fun to watch some one else build a boat.
