December 2011, it is all coming together. Just putting the finishing touches on the hardware and building the cutwater.

<p> <b> 12 August 2013 Update </b> </p><p> The first picture is pulling the boat out of the shop through a hole I cut in the side of the garage with a Sawzall. I will send more pictures of it in the water. </p><p> Thank you! </p><p> <b> 18 November 2009 Update</b></p><p> One photo is of the fastening of 1/2 \" mahogany to the transom. I am getting close to flipping the hull. </p><p> <b> 19 September 2009 Update</b></p><p> It\'s looking like a boat more and more. After the last layer it feels quite stout. </p><p> <b> 18 July 2008 Update</b></p><p> The fairing of the framing is just about finished. </p><p> <b> 6 November 2007</b></p><p> After expanding my shop 120 square feet so that I could fit the boat in the building, I now have the frames set up on the motor stringers. In the pictures you will see some 10\'x1\" strips of mdf for checking if my lines are fair. </p>

<p>Updated Launch August 1, 2012</p> Monte Carlo by Dale Brevik, Polson, Montana </p><p> August 6, 2009 </p><p> I purchased the plans 6 years ago and have been collecting hardware and parts while waiting for retirement to bring me to the point of starting the build. </p><p> White Oak for the frames was purchased and sawdust started hitting the floor on 07/08/09. </p><p> We live on the shores of Flathead Lake, largest natural body of fresh water west of the Mississippi river. This will be a dream boat for summer cruising. </p>
