in good form
installed the two thwarts in the Quark today, and did
some planing on the excess plywood on the bottom. The
only thing left to install is the skeg; the rest of the
work will be sanding, trimming, and epoxy coating and
fiberglass taping. I still like the look of this little
boat, more so because I didn't expect as much boat as
decided to get some good screws for the thwarts, so I
went to West Marine, a few minutes from the house, on
the Niagara River, and got eight brass screws at 40 cents
each. I couldn't touch the stainless steel ones. Still,
it was better than going to the home emporium, though
the screws are a lot cheaper there.
spend so far: Add two hours for the thwarts
and planing today, for a total so far of 19 hours.
so far: Going into today the coast was $127.66.
Add $3.46 for the eight brass screws, for a total so far
