scuppers every few inches (maybe 6 or 8 inches if I recall correctly)
on center (1/2 way through the stock). It is easy to jig up for even
spacing. You only need to skip one or more cuts to save space for
fastening the seats, yoke and thwarts. I actually use lightweight

I have used a radial-arm saw with a dado cutter. I set the dado to
the depth of cut I want to remove and then after the first one is
cut, I clamp a small stop block to the right of the saw blade to fix
the distance apart I want to make the slots. I place the first slot
in the block and cut the next one and on down the line. You can
actually do two inwales at the same time this way. Only takes minutes.
The measuring for locating the seats and yoke takes the most time:-)
- Those are both good and inventive techniques, guys. Thanks for the
photo Richard and I'll try in my bumbling way to get into photos
