Building commences!

Dan and I jumped in making the first cuts! This build requires few tools. Here Dan uses a circular saw to cut the four intial 20" wide, 8 foot long pieces if plywood that will eventually be the sides of our craft. You may wonder how you get a 16' long boat when plywood comes in eight foot sheets. Good question! The answer is, you use epoxy and fiberglass cloth to bond two eight foot sections end to end... and create two 16-foot boards that will be shaped into the sides of the vessel. You'll see that process unfolding in our next posting. Until then, enjoy summer!
