That is seriously impressive. Attempt 1 around these parts was to have supports around the stringers as you have made, but we eventually gave up. I may show this to Paul, and I also may not.

I now have the floor board supports ready to be epoxied together. It’s quite tricky to get them to fit well around the longitudinal stringers on the boat, but I got them fitting nice and snug. I have about 100 mortises on these. Phew!







Here’s a sample of the floor finish:

Panel and on to other things.
Got the panel fit and both seats drilled and debuted, ready for riveting.





Made a plexiglass template for the plasma cutter and cut the dash for the instrument cluster.



I’m waiting for slightly cooler weather so I can do a little painting so I’m working on the sole/floor. Got the planks cut to size and planed. Y’all think traditional 1 13/16” boards with 3/16” spacing will look good in the Vagabond?

I believe your boat will be better than new when you are finished.

Front seat fitment done
I have now finished the fitment on the new front seat in the Vagabond. I installed new t’s.



Then I bent and riveted the stiffeners for the seat bottom.






Before riveting it all together I’m going to paint the inside sides on the boat. I had to do extensive straightening of the side skins so the painting will hide some of the hammering.
