Outside for the first time!



I got the hull outside to clean up the workshop, and viewed it at  full length  from the side for the first time.

And it looks OK so far to me.
 
 If I build another boat in the future I will select more consistently grained and coloured wood, however when the boat is epoxied and varnished there should be a pleasing transition between the dark and the light wood.

I estimate I have so far spent around 60 hrs on the hull + 12 hrs constructing the strong back and forms.
