What's Cooking?

So, what's cooking? All will be revealed!

Take a piece of dowel and slice into 20mm lengths.

Take one piece of styrofoam and cut to size.

Measure carefully and make recess in rear of foam to accommodate dowel plugs.

Position/mark and glue plugs to hull side.

Cut battens to length of foam pieces.

Place prepared foam over dowel and affix with battens.

Voila - foam installed! 1 down 13 to go........

After all that and some paint and varnish we're getting closer to getting the decks installed.

Summer is here

We've had a few hot sunny days here, and now it's too hot to work on the little boat!

Just so you don't think I've abandoned the project, or the blog, I'll post the latest update.

  • Bulkheads now painted
  • Side bins varnished
  • Lazarette bins installed
  • Foam installed to hull sides

The later has taken up quite some time as I devised a means of making the foam removable for inspection/winter storage.

I'll post pictures and further details shortly.
