    Chiles vs Hancock on what is an "Open Boat"

    Agree with Ishmael about respect and name spelling. Further, the piece written by Webb Chiles was originally posted to his blog on January 31, 2017. It was not written as a response to Mr Hancock's article. I can see how the tone of the article could be misconstrued if taken as a response, but this is not the case. Stu

    It's Wednesday here (which means that I have waited a whole extra day for the boat to be splashed ), so am looking forward to seeing some pictures soon, please... (assuming that everything has gone to plan and gone well, which I am sure it did). Stu

    Thanks Bob, That will tide me over for another week. The boat is really starting to come together beautifully, and it looks fantastic (to my eye). I really do like the timber trim on top of the gunwale. Cheers, Stu

    Thanks for the pictures Bob. Great to see things coming together in boat #1. To me, projects become more interesting when they get to this stage as all sorts of things start coming together quite rapidly. Cheers, Stu

    Hi Bob, Thanks for the photos. A quick question. Looking at the detail shot from inside the transom, what will be going in the square hole/cut out? Those are quite sharp internal corners so I am guessing that there will be something "melded" into it so that there will be no stress concentration. (I know, I could go and look at a plan waaaay back up the thread, but hey, I'm lazy ). Cheers, Stu

    Hi Bob and Boomer, Thanks for the photos. Great to see the progress on the boats. I am looking at them on my laptop, and it is fun to turn it upside down to see that second hull up the "right" way. It looks beautiful. Cheers, Stu
