Abigail E – Coming Close

This last week, I worked on the boat for only a day and a half. The summer run of Chinook is in along with a strong run of summer steelhead. So I had good luck fishing with my friend John onboard “Rachel.” One of the days we hooked 8 salmon and steelhead and lost all but three. Most of the fish were right up to the boat when they broke loose. It was good fun!!

Anyway, even though I worked for just a few hours I made some good progress. The construction is nearly complete. All that’s left to build is the dagger board and it’s housing and the oarlock mounts. Once they are complete I need to disassemble the interior and reassemble everything with epoxy. Then, I’ll go about sanding and then vanishing.
