I like the idea of s&g but don't have a clue what happening.
Any chance of a running commentary or what your doing in a particular picture?
cheers Ted

I have added titles to the photos. Most are self explanatory. Later on when I have more time I will write a post outlining the basic steps invovled in the S&G construction process.
For now the titles should help.

Come on fellow builders- how about some comments/discussion about building styles, tools, techniques etc.... Now that winter is upon us I cannot think of a better time to "work" on these boats and talk about them.

Please, go ahead......

Here's a nice run down written by pro builder Tom Gerds about S&G buiding: http://www.nessmuking.com/stitchandglue.htm It's a very nice primer on the topic.

Here's my current project:

It's a cedar stripper, dyed blood red, hatch recesses in the second photo from glass and carbonfiber. So far it's a fun project, but it's getting cold, so work may stop soon.
