UB.  Very good work, you can see it in the pics.   Nice job.  When did you start???
That said, Id like to offer a few tips. 

 First, try scattering your tools all over the shop.  It makes it that much more exciting and interesting and its good for your brain to try to pick out a single tool from a big pile of tools. 

Second, there isn’t nearly enough electrical wires and general debris on your shop floor.  There should be a minimum of 10 pairs of filthy rubber gloves, cut off glass, piles of sawdust, spilled epoxy globs and wood cutoffs on the floor.   This makes you a much careful builder as you are constantly aware of foot placement, and it makes your balance so much better when you are tripping over stuff and you have to keep from falling with a vat of epoxy.

I'll get pics of epoxy globs, scrap piles, and spagetti wires for my next post.  My fishin buddy takes most of the pics and he seems obsessed with getting the boat in the picture.  I am not complaining!  I am really bad about picture taking so I'm happy he has this in mind.  ub

UB  What plywood are you using?
Are you using versa lam or fir for stringers?

I picked up a 14" versalam for the stringers and most of the skin is 6566 marine ply (Aquatec if I remember right).  ub

UB,

Look'n good.  Your shop must be one heck of a lot warmer than mine is.  I haven't been able to do anything on mine for couple of months.  I still wanna come by, but finding the time to get up that way is a problem. 

BTW, tell us about the keel.  Is that just some ply laminated up or...?

Keep up the great work! 

Cheers,  TE

I've always had the opinion of picking the lower HP version of the same displacement motors.  Less expensive and the same amount of torque, which is more important that HP.
That is a fact!!! Wish more people thought about torque this way!
Torque it is the Force that moves.

Which is why I got the yam high thrust kicker.   Can't wait to try it out.    And the power tilt
