I know I posted about this but I actually this boat here at the Humble Hovel in the workshop. Looks like some work ahead of me but it sure is a sweet looking hull!
Here's the beginning of the write up so far:

Dude, from what I've read on your blog--You end up keeping them all! (Still waiting to get a price on that ranger, btw;-) Anyway, Happy New Year...And here's a toast to "the more, the merrier!"

that tear looks like it could could be glued back together with some epoxy and a couple of clamps. Use wax paper and blocks on both sides. When cured, sand the outside flush with ever finer grades of wet/dry sandpaper and spray a bit of white paint on to hide the repair. The repair will be further strengthed when the new gunwhale is put on.

but it is still missing a chunk so will have to figure out a way to fill that. Also, the crack/puncture on the other side is through and through.

Would like to hear how your project goes along. I just found a local place to buy some rough ash so milling out my own gunwales is in the mix. Done it before so it's old hat. Good luck with the nail removal! I did have one hull come in where every screw had either some kind of construction sealant in the head or varnish! Goddamn, that stuff does stink when you burn it out!
