Hello! i liked the colour selection as suggested in the plans so i paint it the same way. Its pretty big and light at the same time.
I built it with 8mm thick wood instead of 6mm so some adjustments had to be made and i had to abandon the idea of floating but its ok

You did a great job on this yacht George. The craftsmanship is very nice. I have been looking at this and a couple other boats plans for a few months but haven't bought them yet. This one came out great. Good job on the pictures also.[thumb]

You did a beautiful job on the yacht, George. This is a build that requires some skill and you completed it with style. I am impressed that you used 8mm wood and still made an accurate build. Thanks for the fine photos for all of us to enjoy.

Hello george.
You have done an excellent job of this little boat. Fit and finish have to be exact if there are to be no leaks, and other than perhaps the omission of ballast, I cannot see why this one would not float well.

Wombat i agree. It's that particular precision thing that i'm most worried about!

"the proof of the pudding is in the eating"  .... so get a bucket of water and let the boat float.

It is wood, so it will float.

Great work George. I like your combination of painted and natural wood finish.

george,  as long as the seams of the hull were well sealed with a fillet of glue before you put the top on, a little imprecision will not hurt
