1) - Models used to work out hull shape
2) - Glueing up plywood to make long panels - storage batteries make great weights!
5) - Without a garage, the boat had to be built in my side yard. A ladder frame (or strongback) provides a secure and level base for construction. Trestles support a tarp to keep out rain and pine needles.

4) - Frames and other pieces of wood get their first coat of resin and are left to dry on the porch.
3) - My workbench with fiberglassing supplies.
