Re: Special Race Boat Replica Project

The boat is currently back in Michigan at the Wooden Runabout Company for some final varnish, upholstery and few other things. Once that is finished, its back home for final assembly. I hope to hit the water beginning of September.

Re: Special Race Boat Replica Project

Update....
The boat's framing was completed about 3 weeks ago and has been waiting for me to go pick it up. I will be bringing the boat home this weekend, My plan is to plank the boat this winter. Expect progress to slow now that it is only me working in my free time.
