Trying to keep my head above water... Soccer tourniments, running the teams web site and having a litter of puppies has gotten in the way latly, but I managed a couple hours in the shop yesterday.

In answer as to why I chose Madrona and cherry, the simple answere is... I had it.
From past experiences I knew their color retention qualties would give me a very close aproximation of teak and holly, the only reservation I had at all is madrona is not a very stable wood compared to teak. This is also why I chose to go with an epoxy finish to lock it down as best as posibal.

Any hoo have a look see.....

I let sanding dust in the shop settel overnight and I will finish it today if nothing drages me away.

The purchase price of a boat is just the admittance fee to the dance...you still have to spend money on the girl...so court one with something going for her with pleasing and desirable character traits others desire as well... or you could find yourself in a disillusioned relationship contemplating an expensive divorce.
