No problem man. I was on that step 15-plus years ago so I could be mistaken....my memory ain't so good.

I do remember getting all excited once I attached the stem and transom as the boat then takes on its unique shape.

Thanks for the update.

Gluing and nailing the stem tomorrow we're getting there

If you are feeling like I did at that stage of the game...you'll be spending every spare moment working on that puppy.

Thanks for posting pics!

So following the directions even with the correct sized bit on the pre drill, the nails weren't very snug. So I did another row with a smaller pilot hole and those are much more secure. You can see how the panels are pulling away on the pic with just one row of nails.
I bought the cheapest ryobi bit set at Home Depot. This definitely says to me that their measurements aren't the most accurate. So that's my tip of the day

One piece at a time, and it didn't cost me a dime
