The Last Three Weeks


I built a boat over the last three weeks,
David Beede's Summer Breeze
Here are the sides being glued after cutting in our basement:

Another shot just before putting the bottom on:


And the "finished" boat at my parents' house (still needs inwales, paint and some tweaking, but it's now essentially together, epoxied, and ready to float).

And several views of the maiden voyage on Lake Lanier:

We sailed (and rowed--in very light wind) out to an island, hiked around the island then sailed home in better wind.
