So my last boat, The Dixie Normas, had to go. We had a baby last year and it was far to small.


Besides, it was finished.


It was a sad day, seeing it leave but it went to a good home. And it made way for the Filthy Oar!


Come, now! Have a little vision! It could be just as pretty as the other one.



First it needs shade, which I kept from the Dixie...


And waterproofing...




Don't worry we'll loose the carpet...


These are wood slats popriveted to strips of plastic with mesh in-between the wood and plastic. I love the look but as crazy as it sounds I may use the old floor reupholstered in seaway no-skid flooring. I was going to make a front seat in this boat like the Queen seat in the Dixie, but after using the boat this summer we really like that the seat swivels. I've been thinking about getting a plate welded to the floor to mount the pedestal on. But also I think the munchkins will get wet with the water splashing up through the mesh....I'm still undecided.


Another thing I'm unsure of is this removable backrest for the middle bench. This was mocked up using old top frames and polytarp. It's too big but it works well. (Thats the bimini tucked in there in it's 'stowed mode')

I've spent most of my time reworking the nose...(not pretty enough by half)



And here it is today! Not finished, more like a work in progress....


Gotta build a place for cup holders and a speakers right?






That bar was going to be support for the Queen seat but is now a holy sh*t handgrip. And thats a anchor cubby.


This was all cobbled together with what I had at hand. For-instance the baby blue aluminum was the front bench taken out of the Dixie. That deadbolt came from a Searay I reupholstered, ect.


...more to follow, like painting, a seat for me, and IDK dingle balls? Whenever the kids happen to nap at the same time and I get another hour to work on it!

I finally had a little free time this weekend and poked around a bit in the Filthy Oar's rear end. Low and behold it was rotten out. She's been around I tell ya. I'm to busy to fix it so I've sub-ed the job out...



The cheap labour will prep it for me and I'll stick in the wood. 

Ever onward!

Merry Christmas! Time off means work for me!

Today I stuck my wood in the Oar's ass-end..

It was harder getting it in than I thought!

And the floor got all jazzied

OooOoOoOoo!


AAaaaaAAaaahhhh! Never used blue no-squid before.

Time to take it for a spin!


Oh yeah....winter.




Whatever, it's not called tobogganing if you do it in a boat!

Ya Mike I've never been very patient when it comes to wiping my caulk on things. Often times I get carried away and get it all over everything.

And I've never been ice fishing either Kodydog. No fish allowed in this boat, might mess up the upholstery! This boat is solely for Sexin'.

The clients came by to inspect the progress



No-squid cup holder


Wrap around pad/backrest dooie roughed in


This 'smugglers cooler' will be covered with a hinged seat.

They were pleased.

Eric-Nice one! I guess you can't use google to name your boat and expect it to be the only one around then, eh?

Nice work there, Peppy!  It's really coming together.  You going to be ready in the Spring with that?  I'm guessing your day job is going to get hopping when the ice melts. 

Dumb (southern) question of the day...  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.
