Wooden Duck Boat

ribThis week I finished the inside joints by sanding them down so that they can be glued. I also sanded down the bow and stern so the sharp edges are rounded. The next step was to glue in the supporting ribs. This will of course strengthen the boat and help it keep its shape. They will also be used to connect the doors for the layout blind cover. The ribs were cut so that they are flush with the foam I will use for flotation. I glued these pieces of foam in place. This week I’ll cut out and glue into place the false floor that covers and protects the flotation foam. I’ll also work on the connectors that will hold the layout blind doors in place.sternview

    I think it’s coming along beautifully. I can’t imagine how many hours of sweat and labor has gone into the building but I’ll bet you’re starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel! Very professional workmanship! It’s a beautiful boat…can’t wait to see the end product!
