Today I glued the gunwales on one side of the boat. They are made up of three layers of 1/2" x 1 1/2". The boat is almost 22' long, so I used that scarfing jig that you saw yesterday to splice the ends of my shorter lumber together. Everything on the boat is glued with epoxy. It is expensive and messy, but it is the ultimate in high strength, waterproof glue.
In this photos you can see the ramp that opens up on the bow. It is designed to make it easy to load an ATV into the boat.
