Beautiful work! I am just finishing my Free B frame and getting started on the coaming. I'm hoping to sew the skin on next weekend. I started on Thanks giving afternoon by ripping my longitudinals and laying out and cutting the frames. I used a laminate trimmer with a round over bit on all frame pieces and ther gave them a coat of satin polyurethane. On Friday I sanded and recoated. I started lashing and building on Saturday, and today, Monday I've just got to finish the gunwales to the stem and the fanny beams that I decided to add per some of Jeff's other designs. I've built 5 plywood epoxy sailboats, but none were as fun as this project. It's the closest thing to instant gratification in boatbuilding!!! I found the lashing to be extremely enjoyable when compared to spreading or sanding epoxy, etc.
I also want to give a big shout out to Jeff for offering the Free B offsets for free! Thank you sir for giving us this beautiful little boat! I am already looking at one of your thinner longer designs, so yea...you got me hooked by giving me a "sample". ;~)
I'm in Nashville and get to eastern TN a couple times a year, so I hope to meet you someday soon.
