Pete, Your boat looks great. The only thing I would be concerned about is if you drilled holes into all your stringers to attach your floorboards that may have weakened them.

Completed the 1958 FeatherCraft Vagabond II today.  It turned out beautiful and I will install the engine and controls in the next few weeks.  I am not sure if the windshield will go back on right away.
