Stevenson Projects Weekender Sailboat Build #17: Dry Fit #2 Pictures

Last week I shared the trials and tribulations of my transom attempt…which turned into a good thing…and I shared all the details there…but I did not post any pictures. I decided that I should take some pictures before I pull it apart and glue on the new transom…as I said in the last blog I am glad that I did another dry fit since the first dry fit the boat was not as far done…so with the parts closer to finished I have a much better idea of the prep steps and ...

Well…its been a really good week and a half since we returned from our Christmas trip…when winter break began I hoped I would be assembling my boat this week and now I know its not going to happen…but my secondary goal which I decided upon when we returned has surpassed my expectations… When I returned last Thursday I decided to NOT MAKE A GOAL…except to try and work on the boat each day…however large or small just DO SOMETHING…and I have stuck to ...

Ok…here I go…this is the official blog to begin what I hope will be a great quest—-to build a little sail boat by Stevenson Projects called “The Weekender”. I have been planning for this for many months and today was a big day. Here is a little bit of the path I have taken to get to this point in case you ever want build a boat.
