Folks his boat is an 11 out of 1-10 in workmanship. Like one said his wiring job leaves most folks in awe . The hours and attention to detail is as good as it gets. Tell us more about how your dinghy project is coming.

Thanks everybody for the compliments.
Long time ago in a different country my first real job was electrical work on a shipyard. They were building a series of navy frigates. The importance was quality not speed. Something I liked.

The dinghy is a modified version of Dave Gentry's Piankatank River Pram. It is a skin on frame design that is modified to make it nesting. It was supposed to be finished more than a year ago but back problems and other projects prevented that.
I just started working on it again.
