Recreating Dad's Model Boat

From user Jeff2010:

My motivation behind this build is that my dad built this same model when I was two years old, back in 1961. He would take me down to a dam in Willoughby, Ohio and cruise the boat. The boat went over the dam on one occasion and my dad claimed it was someone on a CB Radio who interfered with the RC signal. Luckily, It wasn't too badly damaged. In the early Nineties, my mom sold it in a Garage Sale.

This is my first attempt to build a balsa wood model. Someone suggested I start a build log. I will add pictures to catch you up.
