ok, ok... pictures are cool. So here's some to satisfy.

Tonight I cut crossmembers for the bow floor. I used a 2x4 with cardboard "feelers" to make a template of both sides of the 2x4 - this gave me a great template that allowed me to get really close to the compound angle cut needed to get the right fit in the bow.





Both 2x4s in place for test fitting


I had time to try my hand at filling in the gaps between the wood and hull - it's my first time working with fiberglass, so I figured this is a good place to give it a try. It's not structural and no one will ever see it once the floor is down.
