Today i start the glassing process on the outer hull.
BEAUTIFUL! that is one good looking boat, love the attention to detail in the woodwork. are you gonna frame that boat or fish out of it? cant wait to see it when its done.
I cant wait to see the finished product. You are truly an excellent craftsmen.
Awsome boat!! i am geting ready to build a 14 ft drift but i am going to the stitch and glue method. I hope it turns out half as good as yours looks.
Cool. Im wanting to build a 14 ft drifter next. Where did you get the plans. I have a lot of left over cedar that a friend gave me that he tore off his house. That is what i built this boat from. I would really be interested in the details for your build.
I finished the 3 coats last night and took her of the molds today.Now its scrape, plane, and sanding on the inside hull. uhg.
Wow, I wish I had the talent to attempt a project like this. I just fished from an Au Sable riverboat for the first time a few nights ago on the Manistee and loved it. So much quieter than a driftboat and manueverable. Thanks for posting.
Wow the boat looks great. can't believe how far you've gotten since Paul and I where up there. Maybe one of these days we can wet a line off it or my pontoon (Dry Fly) and strip some streamers. Say hi to Wendy for me and I'll talk to you soon.
Its looking great, thanks for the update.
Thanks Gary, I havent wet a line since we went out that night. I need to leave the boat alone and go fishing
Your welcome up anytime bro.
I found the boat plans on Spirainternational.com thay have a ton of blue prints the one i am going to build is the 14ft RIVERMAN. I was looking at the 14ft CANADIAN but i wanted to try somthing a bit easyer for the first one. That and i like the Mckenzie boat style better.
Wow, that is a really gorgeous boat! Super work!
that is one sexy looking boat! I would love to be able to do something half that well one day. Just gotta get the honey-do list knocked out first. Should only take a decade or two. Hats off to ya and two thumbs way up!
That is a beautiful boat! I built a stitch & glue drift boat about 7 years ago. I went with plans from Montana Boatbuilders. Montana Riverboats also has some nice plans. I'm thinking about building a smaller DB. Maybe the Montana Riverboats "Buffalo Boat".
My boy would like to build one can you help with direction of plans?
