Hi everyone. David Brown here. Just re-connecting after a fair bit of time.  My boat is the Mahogany Rush, a Moldy.  This is a Rye Bay 8 Stitch and Glue method.  Plans from a place in England.  If you ever do a stitch and glue project, be very very accurate with the cutting. 8 photos...

G'day David,
Such a cute little classic boat.
Two things I've noticed..
1. Earlier this month marks 13 years since you joined this forum.. congratulations!
2. Rowlock blocks haven't been fitted to your boat?

Best regards,

MERCMAN.

Hi David.  Thanks, yeah now I remember I found some very ordinary new ones from a Marine shop.  It was a cutey.  Still haven't worked out why it was just bliss doing it. There's something wrong with my brain.  ...    So here we go.  This post is Alex's idea.  He really wanted a 50's type of look. Funny, he liked the cabin on the original plans from Glen L but agreed it would be simpler build without a cabin. Did the usual thing of moving the dashboard line back to get a sexier looking top deck. I agreed to build it up to that point where he can fit it out how he likes it.  He did really help at the start by cutting the 6 frames and the bow frame.  Very accurate and set things up later for everything lining up beautifully.  He owned that, not me. I was just the lowly worker drone getting it finished.  At the time was going through some crap and was good having a focus.... Counted 11 photos of this. The fuel tank is in a cradle up the front. Easier build than what I first thought and fairly straight forward plumbing.
