A Skiff Wind blows over the water-An account of my winter project to build my first wooden boat, a 13' plywood QT Skiff designed by Jim Michalak. Now that that boat has been launched and is in use, this blog will now also document all of my other boat building and general "MESSING ABOUT IN BOATS"
Today was a rainy day, just right for working inside, on the inside of a boat.
the thwarts and floors and breast hooks all being test fitted
I tried to make use of some scrap for the floors but I think they may be a touch to thin. They are a bit flexy. I might try 'em anyway. The thwarts are 36 inches apart, far enough apart, I hope, to not make it hard to get in and out of the boat.
It is really starting to look the real canoe, I think.
