Well, here is my first attempt at boat building.  I carve  wooden duck decoys, and had a notion to make a boat, and there you were DUCKWORKS! I knew it was meant to be.  I chose Jim Michalak's Jonsboat for the simplicity.  I have included a few pictures. I am currently three weekends in to it. I am surprised at how fast this boat is assembled.

just a side note..... I originally cut the seat assemblies for storage beneath, but decided to make them solid to maximize the amount of flotation foam to be used. I also decided to use 'Gorilla Glue" which is a true waterproof adhesive. Very messy....very strong. Depending on the boats performance with a 10horse, I may consider building a stand up center console to press forward some weight in turn allowing a  larger motor. The cleats, and bow light came from an old Chris Craft boat That I had attempted to fix up about 14 years ago.
