Mega-Build Thread, Mocassin Tractor Seat

Recommended Posts

Between my self-containment due the the pandemic (I’m fine), and coaching my friend Jan on her S12 build, I got the itch to stitch up some Okoume.  So, I bought some plans for a seat for my Flyfisher 13 yesterday.  I downloaded them, printed them, and started cutting up scraps.  It is going quickly!  Here’s where I am, so far.

Well, boys and girls, it got very abrasive in the workshop today.  I sanded down all my lumps and bumps from when I went crazy with dookie schmutz.  (A Nick Schade term for thickened epoxy.) I relearned the importance of doing neat, clean work, since I had to sand off a lot of product.  I discovered a couple of holidays, too.  Guess I’m going back in with goo, to clean up a couple of spots, and make some corrections.   But she looks pretty good.  It is also a very comfortable design.
