Thanks June! See the nice thing about this project is I don't really care if it's done. I used it all last year with the brown astroturf, I'd put it in the water right this second if I could. I do hope the resident boat painter will paint the outside, just cause he'll take it for a week or three to get it done. Besides when it's done I'll probably sell it and have to start over.

Do you guys up north insulate aluminum skiffs like that?  Even on a summer day, I think my bare feet would freeze just sitting in a boat like that.  

Thats why we wear our winter boots while boating. Right Darren? There's a guy in town who'll spray rubber gasket stuff (used as waterproofing on flat roofs and foundation walls) inside aluminum boats. He says it insulates it and hinders the condensation. I've thought about it, heavy and expensive though. It is cold on the tootsies. Georgian Bay doesn't get much above 60℉ in august. Thats why I like the floor.

Okay, it can be spring now.







There'll be a teal stripe between the black and white  when it's done.

Whoo-baby!

Well at least snow days are good for something. I probably spent all the money I would have made on materials. At least the boat is further along.


The drivers backrest. It's a sheet of HDPE with closed cell foam and upholstered. Sewn like a bag then sewn shut on the bottom. 2 grommets in the sheet go into deck mounts with pins to make it removable.




The queen seat gets a seat.

Still I'd rather a nice sunny day of paying work than a slushy/shitty/snowy day of fun jobs.


So, either this


Or this. I'm leaning to this one. Any thoughts? Or dissenting opinion is good too....

Got it home just in time to catch all the sleet we've been getting recently.



the picture doesn't do the colour justice. Just you wait, a sun beam will hit it some day, and then- SPARKLES!

Woo hoo! Seat is done!





I'm very pleased. This is the first bucket seat I've made from scratch and I think it turned out pretty awesome. As an added bonus it's also comfortable!



We might even try putting the boat in the water sometime.

Some more views-
