Just thought I would try a small boat build. No plans just winged it.
All Tasmanian oak with high grade marine ply glassed over.
Took 6 mths averaging about 2 hrs a day.
Full build is pics, but won't upload so just a brief view.

Don't tell me I can't do something. The difficult jobs I can do
straight away but the impossible takes me a little more time.

Thanks Neil. The seats were coated in several layers of fibreglass resin for hardness leaving the natural wood grain with no distortion of natural timber colour.
