"Look ma, no trailer"

Here is Kingsfold, or rather almost all the lumber and all the plywood to build her with. I understand better now what the Stevensons are referring to in the construction video about "first cut fever." For me it is not so much fear of actually cutting as it is of making an error and ruining this very lovely material.
I expect it will be "measure three or four times; cut once" for me. Now I have a very tangible incentive to clear the floor in my garage!

On a sad note, one of several people I know who has taken special interest in my boat project passed away a couple of weeks ago. Ron Hegewald, thank you for your encouragement and enthusiasm. I am very sorry you didn't live to see this photograph.
