This class and project fascinate me. Enjoyed the thread greatly.

So how does this project stack up against previous projects? What are some of your previous project types? I know you mentioned you stay away from automotive work. Any other boat projects?

We have a Ford 3000 we will be starting on this semester. A complete restore.
Here is last year 2nd semester project. It got a rebuild from the ground up. The mans father passed and the family wanted to have it done in their fathers memory. Now it just comes out at family reunions and takes the kids on hay rides.

Very nice work. The young men who are working on this project will garner a skill level that they will have for the rest of their lives. Some skills will migrate to others and bode them well. Also, your and their commitment to safety is commendable - using proper PPE is essential. I guess that she will scoot across the water with that Yammy 115!

If it was me I would let the students sign the underside of one of the hatches so every time you open it you will see it, and think back on this wonderful experience and the young men that helped make it possible. For them it would be like an artist signing their finished work!

Great job on the boat and with guiding these young men. Kudos sir, kudos!

Leaux Tide .Great Idea. I will get them so sigh it and then clear over it. Thanks for the suggestion.
Yea we are keeping the 115 Yam. My wife actually offered to spring for a new four stroke but going to wait for now. Of course we both put our money together so what I think she meant to say was it is ok with her if we buy one.LOL

All good things must come to an end. We have finished the boat. We will be installing a poling platform in Feb and we will post a video this weekend of it running in the water.
Thanks for everyone's suggestions.

Thanks for an inspirational thread! I've enjoyed following along and watching the progress on the boat. But you got to see the greatest progress--a few young boys investing themselves and growing into knowledgeable young men. Thanks, Tillman for your dedication and sharing their story with us.

That's awesome! Hate work has kept me from dropping back by to see the finished project. The boat turned out great!

Are they ready to re-wire a Blazer Bay yet?
