Thanks everyone for the continued interest in my build. Unfortunately, summer is a very busy period for my other hobbies/interest, so the build is on hold until fall.

As summer is winding down, I have been able to get a little work done. The forward seating area is just about done. Still need to sand and trim the seat edges. I'm glad this part is over. Fitting each slat is a bit of a pain. A little disappointed on the lack of symmetry at the most forward part where the port and starboard side converge. The port side is the most recent work, is raw, and has not had the first coat of varnish as the STBD side, hence the color difference.

I did add the simulated diamond tread around the propulsion plant. Still need to complete the internal mahogany deck all around the diamond tread.

In the last picture you can see that there is no finished deck planking between the silver deck plate and the interior midship bulkheads. This is one of the many issues I have run into due to the design as you build approach that I took. In hind sight, the framing should have been built in the very early stages as an integral part of the sub flooring. Also due to the design of the midship bulkheads and the need that they be removable to access electronics, the remaining section of decking has to be removable.

This is the last major hurdle but I finally got around to getting it done. Pictures are pretty self explanatory. Although I did not get a picture, the mahogany blanks are being installed.

Hello

Beautiful finish and a lot of research in development

Damage to the small defects on the fern of the front benches, but the rest blurred this small flaw

Kind regards

Francois,
Thanks for the comment. The entire boat is still ROUGH. Lots of sanding to do to include finishing overhangs. Once I get the general woodwork complete I'll correct some of those flaws (there a actually quiet a few) and then start the 5 or more layers of varnish. You know the drill, coat, sand, coat, sand............wet sand and then polish.

Oldnavy your build is awesome. Great workmanship. I hardly ever go off the Scale Boat and Dock Talk forums, so unfortunatly I have not seen this build until now. I will have to float over to this forum more often to see all the builds going on in this forum, thanks
