Tis the season me thinks. Folks are doing warm weather stuff. I'm seeing the same lack of activity on a couple airgun forums I hang out on.

I'm watching the weather so I can get some ocean time with the Jumbo. The wind machine has been blowing non stop for weeks now.

Your under deck finish looks great Wildscottishblum. I’m in the same spot with the tank on my jumbo but I didn’t paint the under deck area like you did. Looking at your boat has me thinking maybe I will paint before I mount the tank and install the floor.

I've noticed that before ... it seems if one forum drops in activity, then all forums do.  Steve's probably right ... the season is perfect for a lot of things....

Underfloor looks good!

Thats a better use of pool noodles than I usually see!

Thanks Cordell, it really makes for a nice snug fit for the 1 1/2" conduit, they don't rattle at all.

Steve: Did you crown deck or build-in a slope aft? One of our BIGGEST regrets is not installing drains in the forward corners of our fishdeck running to stern drainbox. We've wornout sponges sopping up the water since 2003!!! B & B

Nope, and it’s a pain.  Same for the anchor well. Water pools and it annoys me to no end. I may end up rethinking the anchor well by building up the center so the water drains.

Go to the hardware store and buy the warpiest sheet of plywood ... it's already got the crown built in for you!

Bob,
No crown built in but the fore 96" of deck are raised ~2 3/8" above the tops of the stringers, the aft most ~20" of deck will slope down to the tops of the stringers. Most of this will be under the splashwell so it won't really be noticeable, I plan to put transom scuppers about 4" in from the sides of the transom. The idea being the water will run back there and out. I am going to have a fully sealed deck, with one access port over the fuel uptake.  There will also be an open, short chase from the bilge up underneath the splashwell, to allow wires and hoses to cross the centerline.

ten days without a new post? wutgivs?
Summer!  And in Alaska summer is a super short four month window, so every minute counts!  We build these skiffs to get off the internet and on the ocean.  While you're still building it can seem lonely on the internet, but once you're done you're going to want to be out on the ocean, too!  I just returned from a few days out; no big halibut this time, but chickens and rockfish all day long.  Sockeye are hitting the rivers now, and pinks will start coming in soon followed by silvers.  And silvers means lots more time on the water just before snow flies.  Build fast, go fishing (and take some kids with you)!

Nothing better than putting kids on fish!
