Building the TotalBoat Work Skiff: Inventing the Hardware

It must be almost springtime in New England, because Lou Sauzedde is thinking about dock lines and cleats for the TotalBoat Work Skiff. As the skiff nears completion, and before the paint is applied, it’s a great time to sort out where the important hardware will go so the finishing brush strokes are tight. Lou – in typical fashion – has dreamed up a “special” hawsepipe to work on the gunwales. His non-intrusive method will pass the lines beautifully to a unique rod set up as a “belaying pin” in place of a standard cleat. Lou’s special setup will give the work skiff credibility (as if it needs it) when the boat leans on it’s spring lines alongside a dock or boat.

Only Lou could have thought this one up! Thanks for watching. Leave your comments for Lou below and don’t forget to share this video with your friends!
