Glad to see someone attempt this build. I have considered it myself if I ever obtain a set of plans. What wood are you using for the frames and planking? I will be following your build with great intrest. Bob

So far its been a fun build
I am using 3/16" balsa for the frames and 3/16"x3/4" for the planking

It looks very well done. She is going to be a very nice looking boat.
