    This has got to be one of the most hypnotizing videos I’ve seen lately.
    I could sit in the shop for days just looking at this work being performed…

    Well, I pulled the trigger.
    I found an Aroha kit, engine and plywood stock for sale on the “Wooden Boat Magazine” boats for sale site, in Sausalito at the Spaulding Marine Center.
    I just got it all home to Seattle tonight.
    Contact me if you would like to buy a set of plans and Mylars at a reduced price as I now have two sets.
    I hope to get my garage cleared out and get started this summer.

    Re the above table of “Whio”s” fuel consumption ,it’s nit-picking perhaps, but “knots per hour”? A knot is a measure of speed, not distance; e.g. 5 knots is 5 nautical miles per hour. To say “5 knots per hour” is saying “ 5 nautical miles per hour per hour”.

      Good catch, John. We’ve corrected that table above.

    At the risk of sound dense, can you include in future videos the technics of routed post, rounded corners using veneered plywood or laminated materials?

      Thanks for this suggestion Michael. I had the very same interest but thought it was covered in another video in this series and/or Tony Grove’s video. But I don’t see it. We’ll get it on our list, and why not make it a series on building a whole cabin trunk/top? We’ll watch for the opportunity.

    Always enjoy these videos and the explanation of the philosophy behind the construction choices. Hope I don’t have to wait another 4 months for Part 25. The long period between videos kinda kills the enthusiasm for what is otherwise a very fun and informative series.

      Thanks for your feedback and nudge regarding the delay in releases in this series Olav (and others). We understand, for sure, and apologies for the delay between parts. During the two years that Covid restricted our filming opportunities we released a too-heavy percentage of videos focused on boatbuilding. So we took some time to swing the pendulum back to boats on the water for members who are not into boatbuilding. Thanks again for the nudge/feedback.
