Having fun on papa’s truck!

Check out the high five on the last picture 🙂

Uh I should mention about Massimo’s amazing black eye. Here he is definitely getting better! He got a swollen, purple black eye by jumping backward from the bed and hitting the side table on the way down… ouch! He cried for just a minute, kept on the cold magic bunny for another minute and then he slept all night. When we woke up in the morning we couldn’t believe it was so bad.

Building and launching the OSS (One Sheet Skiff) “Jack-Knife” – 3/3. Eliot, Valerie, Geoff

Building and launching the OSS (One Sheet Skiff) “Jack-Knife”. about a 6 hour build (across a number of days), with one sheet of 1/4 inch plywood + scrap for transom and frame, heavy duty PL construction adhesive, and a pneumatic stapler. Waterproofing via exterior latex sealer/paint… Built more or less to the plans of the Mini Sharpie over at Simplicity Boats: http://www.simplicityboats.com/minisharpie.html

This is the last of three posts showing the progress!

Transport via ol’ blue to the local reservoir, launch was a major success! A healthy 3″ freeboard with pops and boy!

Started by cutting out patterns (to experiment with shape, and to have the option of easy subsequent builds). Added a stem piece to create strength in the bow, provide for easy painter eyelet, and allow for our experimental pneumatic staple + construction glue build method! Attached bottom, then used a router bit to trim.
