Well, got my rear deck locker lids with their hinges mounted tonight! Not a real big deal, but nice to get something done.


I did come to one epiphany during this activity tonight… you need to be ambidextrous (“being equally adept in the use of both right and left”) to build a boat. Whenever you do something on one side of the craft, then you have to move around and do the very same thing on the opposite hand. This means contorting yourself in some really odd way, or working “off-handed”.

If you have a boat-building partner, make sure you favor opposite hands!
