    Don't tell her it's a new boat, just say you had to fix a couple of things on the current one and took it back apart. Paint them both the same color and scheme, she'll never know the difference. Otherwise you'll have to hear in the background, "how many boats does he need" like I do.

    Beautiful work and finished in four months!

    I may stream it live on youtube. Stay tuned for the link.

    Forward hatch complete... mostly. Ceilings complete.

    Also called a tumble home bumper for the reasons outlined above. If you can find a photo with that parallel to the water, it makes the boat look trimmed by the bow so you can't win. Now that all the "experts" have weighed in on the obvious and fatal design flaws in this boat I have decided to burn my build rather that waste anymore time and money on it. Stay tuned for the bonfire videos.

    I've knocked them off then put them back on. When I looked at the cost and time to bag everything vs. radiusing, I just couldn't justify it. I have, on the other hand, glassed internal, non-structural, low wear edges with a strip of glass. I don't have any problem with running the glass up the sides of a piece and then applying another piece on the edge/face. I am just careful when I sand to avoid going through the sharp edge. I wouldn't do this with hull bottom/chine areas, but bulkhead edges I wouldn't hesitate.

    All the hatch rings installed. Sole and transom glassed
  12. An other OC20 build !!

    I don't see why you can't use threaded rod embedded as you have suggested. I would suggest using bronze rod for the studs for the best corrosion protection. If you are interested in a bit more tensile strength, you can widen the bottom of the hole so that the epoxy forms a wedge (cone). Although the forward location will see shear and compression loading for the most part.

    Sole installation locations readied. Sticking them in. One left to do.
  14. Ocracoke 256 hull #2 Build

    The rest of the hatch ring moulds and the parts.

    Forward 2/3's of the ceilings planked, and glassed, and rough faired,
