Step 17: More Wooden Shoe Cobbling

I glued a wooden disk in the bottom of the hole so the tubing leg wouldn't touch the float directly.
I heated up the block to cure the epoxy quicker. Don't breathe those buttery fumes!
When the epoxy was set up I shaved the protruding plugs off with the tablesaw.
I drilled some lashing holes in the sides of the blocks and cut the corners off the ends so they would enter the water better.

Jumping ahead, let's go sailing and I'll show you how this stuff turned out.
As usual, awesome instructable. Your how-tos seem to be more like stories than instructions. Except for the *innocently scrolling, then: Oops, naked dudes hot tubbing* moment, awesome! Not really minding the hot tub thing, just kind of a surprise :P
What kind of decking is that.....and how is it attached?&nbsp; I can not tell from the photos how the seating is arranged.&nbsp; Are you sitting on top or in?<br /> <br /> This is fantastic by the way!&nbsp; I was just looking into building a outrigger out of a hobie 16 hull and a pvc pipe as an aka.<br /> <br /> Thanks for your great instructables<br />
sweet boat. im making a boat like that.small one for lakes
Did you just post a photo of naked dudes in a hot spring? Ahhhh, Tim and I like your ibles so much....Then you gotta go ruin it for me.
Looks like they deliberately posed so as to avoid it being adult. Wouldn't be a good 'ible without at least one "what the heck?" moment.
Still...is it weird that I was thinking...Awe, man I'm looking at a photo of naked dudes. There's just something wrong about that.
Nice! I suggest one improvement: retitle to How to Improve a Catamaran :-)
That Cuba story is amazing!
Hey, thats sailing! launch from the beach, exceptional prototyping. The kayak I was coating... is christened and is an excellent bay boat, on to the surf Umiak.. any input to design appreciated Joe / bohemianblacksmith@gmail
Here's <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Cozy-Boat/?ALLSTEPS">my umiak.</a><br/>If I made another one I'd raise the sheer at the ends more.<br/>All that rocker makes it pretty impervious to waves, but the compounding in the shape makes it hard to cover with a single sheet of cloth. Notice the wrinkles <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.instructables.com/id/CozyBoatSkin/">when we put a heavier skin on it.</a><br/>Oars are nice. Have you seen the currach rowing in <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pc1SkNsYHig">&quot;Man of Aran&quot;?</a><br/>
You had a bit of pornography in step 12, might wanna block it out, and you said "on" twice in step one. Nice instructable though.
It's all pornography! :) thanks!
Yeah, but know there will be that one parent that will say the classic "This is a family-based website." And you are very welcome.
Sweet! two-hundred instructables!
