Wheels -
Make slices off a wooden dowel. Two different wheel sizes are needed front and back to allow for the slope of the deck.
Slicing a dowel in a jig for consistent thickness and then drilling thw axle hole using a jig makes it go pretty quick.

SCUPPERS! I could not get the described method in the instructions using a jig to work at all. What worked for me was marking the exterior of the hull where the scuppers should be, then marking the inside. Drill a small pilot hole from the outside inward and one from the inside outward, eyeballing to get them to intersect. Once intersected, the small holes are drilled out with sequentially larger drills untill the holes accept the scupper tubes. Cut the tubes long, epoxy them thoroughly in place, and then cut them close and sand flush with a Dremel.
