  1. Those are through bolts; there is another angled piece on the inside. I agree, these details eat up significant time.
  2. Awesome; I'm looking forward to your video.
  3. Couple of random pictures (I keep forgetting to take better pictures). Here is a QSWO angle adapter for the boarding ladder. There is a large angle difference between the boarding ladder flange and the transom. Here is the inner coaming temporarily propped into place. I roughly planed down the cleats to the approximate angle with a spokeshave, then fine tuned them with an orbital sander (the spokeshave sole wasn't quite wide enough to shave them both at once, while the sander could span both coamings). This process worked well for me and went quicker than expected. I installed the trim pieces around the centerboard well opening (the rabbit accepts a Lexan cover). I purchased this gouge years ago for $5 and haven't used it until now; it sharpened up nicely and worked well to make the insert that fits over the centerboard well opening (I forgot to take a picture of it in place).
  4. Chick, you are a one man shipyard. Every time I log onto the forum you have finished another boat!
  5. Good idea; I nominate Mr. Don to post a picture of his setup. I was looking at river running oars recently and stumbled across some 10 foot long, two piece aluminum oars that seemed to be lightweight, durable, and fairly cheap.
  6. I definitely will have oars on this boat, so I'm thinking I need some blocks under the coaming cap for the oarlock sockets. Is there a recommended location for these sockets?
  7. Pete, I'm working on the inner coaming and coaming caps. I noticed you installed blocking under your coaming cap (see picture below) about 2/3rds of the way forward of your transom to aid in hardware attachment. I'm thinking of copying your idea. Were you happy with how that worked out? What thickness of blocking would you recommend?
  8. Congratulations on the rollover.
  9. Cool, thanks Don.
  10. Followed your suggestion and replaced the pictures; let me know if you see any problems.
  11. Thank you for the information; I appreciate the education I'm receiving here on the forum. I'll use the 12 strand for the first part of the centerboard line. Should I use braided 12 strand for the remainder of the uphaul line and the rudder up/down hauls?
  12. Sorry for the dumb question, but I have very little sailing experience. Would this be good line for the rudder uphaul, downhaul and centerboard uphaul? What diameter is recommended?
  13. I switched photo hosting sites. I was using Photobucket, but I haven't been able to log into my account for a month now (I'm not the only one, Photobucket has a huge log-in problem). I'm now using Google Photos but I must be doing it wrong (it shows up fine for me, but that's probably because I'm signed into my Google account). Thanks for letting me know, I'll figure something out.
  14. I need to lift those weights more often Jay; my arms and legs are skinny and weak! I probably won't finish the boat in time for the Messabout. Working with my kids really slows me down at times . . . . . . but it is worth it when I see a smile like this.
  15. I glued in the starboard seat top, using a "freezer bag with the corner cut off" method which worked well.
