    The canoe is finished and a week of sitting around got boring, dont really feel like watching TV or playing video games after months of being productive :(

    So..... Will see how much I can get done before it is too cold to work in the tent.

    Printed out a "shop copy" of my plans and took them out to the "boat factory".

    Sanded all the epoxy lumps off the table. (Just so Fuzz can tell me, "I told you so")

    Plywood Inventory: 10 sheets of 3/8" Okoume and 6 and 2/3s sheets of 1/4" Okoume.

    Looking at the nesting and trying to figure out the best way to use the partial sheet I think I had a good idea but would like feedback before actually cutting.

    I'll cut the two rear side panels from it which leaves nearly 2x lengthwise 1/2 sheets for cutting rubrails from.

    I will cut my molds from OSB. However when it comes time to make the bulkheads I don't see them in the nesting pages. I assume they are from 3/8" ????

    Are the motor well sides supposed to be glued to the stringers before assembly?

    I don't understand the diagram of the motor well on page D284/5
    1. Are there any square corners on the motor well side panels?
    2. What is the purpose of the gap/notch cut out of it against the transom?

    I'm sure I'll have more questions going forward....
