Well - it looks like a boat now. It went from flat packed sheets of plywood glued together to make long enough planks for a 15' boat from 8' plywood, to boat shaped. I got the planks stitched together with copper wire ties. Alice showed up at the end and helped out. Then we flipped it over so it is upside down on sawhorses, and I tighteded all the wires to pull the edges together more tightly. I ended the evening mixing up two batches of woodflour and epoxy to start glueing the planks together.The lowest planks are glued to the bottom.Then I work my way up the boat filling seams. Once the epoxy sets up, I pull out the wires, and then reinforce EVERYTHING.

The directions are good, but I have questions about what happens next that I have to read ahead for. So I make notes in my directions book, which I realized is actually a workbook more than anything I have used since 4th grade, basically.
