A little like high school too. I saw a new post and thought we we're getting the build started. Feel like I was teased a bit!

Something I am doing that the plans do not call for is planing the outside top edges of the preceding panel so the laps fit and look better. The panels are fitting flush on the inside as well.

I tried to upload pics again, same size as the previous pics, but keep getting this message: (Sorry, the board attachment quota has been reached). I GIVE UP!!!!!!!

It's the type of picture you are trying to post. The ones you posted which are adjustable are the ones giving you trouble.
A member ( beekeeper ) posted regular pictures of his new pirogue seat after your private message to me. Just today he posted this one. viewtopic.php?f=11&t=10313&p=99705#p99705

I would suggest you contact beekeeper and see who he is using for his pictures since the system will accept them.
