I had to join two pieces to make the outside transom plate. (What do you call that outside piece of wood?)






I think from now on we'll call it the 'outside transom plate'. ;) Looking great! I like the flush mounted swivels.

That'll be a fine looking transom, and the seats look good, too. So glad the previous owner left the bow unharmed. Gonna be a fun little boat. Enjoy!

Nice wood working.

At least the previous owner didn't sawzaw the bow handle off flush for his homemade bow pulpit.

The bench seats are being made out of mystery wood. It is not pine, may be Cyprus? Anyway I got a stack of 11'x12" x1/2" rough cut cheap a while back.

Two pieces glued together with titebond III. Seat base inset thru top piece.

Edited to say the wood looks, cuts, planes, sands just like Cyprus. The color changes to look like cheap pine with the first coat of Spar.

I had a beautiful piece of old growth western red cedar I had been waiting for something special to use it. I planed it down to a tad over an inch.

I have been working on the Favorite. Stripped it to the hull, cleaned it well, started the transom, debated alot about painting, also comfort questions with my fishing buddies (my wife and father), etc.
