Building the TotalBoat Work Skiff: The Gunwale Caps

Follow Lou out back to his lumber stack to check on the remaining boards left for the Work Skiff project. With only a few remaining pieces, Lou has the few boards he needs to create the gunwales. As in the past with the breast hook and the knees, Lou sought pieces of wood that had a grain that would complement the curve of the skiff sides. His last few boards seem to be perfect for the job and he of course has the tools and techniques to perfectly fit and attach it. With his planer, some bedding compound and TotalBoat 5:1 Traditional Epoxy Resin, Lou expertly attaches the gunwales getting us one step closer to painting, completion and launching! And you can come meet Lou and see the skiff at the Jamestown Distributors Tent Sale on April 22 at our Bristol, RI HQ.  More info to follow!
