  1. Core Sound 20 Mark 3 Build - Chesapeake, VA

    I haven't done a good job taking pictures, but I'll put up what I have. Using scrap wood to check to check the fit before cutting into the good stuff . . . This Chechen wood is beautiful stuff; it will look even better after varnish. I'm going with two curved sliding hatches (copying Chicks work) . . . I glued down the bottom half of the hatch tracks. About two o'clock in the morning I suddenly woke up and realized I forgot to cut the drain holes in the tracks. I know how I'm going to fix it (and it won't be that hard, but still, it is funny how these thoughts come to you in the middle of the night).

    Looking forward to seeing some pram building pictures; and here I thought you would slack off after finishing Chessie!

    Nice work Steve; it is sure is fun looking at your pictures. Everyone is approaching this segment of the build a little differently which is pretty cool.

    Great picture.

    I remember my first job working as a bus boy in a southern style restaurant in Okeechobee, FL (Okeechobee is in the real southern part of FL, not in the snowbird towns along the coast). One of my jobs was to make sweet tea and fill the tea dispenser. The amount of sugar I was instructed to add blew my mind and caused about 300 cavities in the small town. The local dentists were pretty happy.
  7. Great writing Chick (who really isn't a chick if you haven't met him). I'll have to check out Graham's screens next time I go down there. Funny, for both days I camped on shore, not one mosquito was to be found (and I looked hard for them). I guess they really like you.

    How many days should I let the epoxy on the hull cure before priming it? I'll be using Awlgrip 545.

    Looking good. Nice job on the steam bend.

    Fiberglassed the hull with 10oz glass. It us about 3.5 hours to cut the glass and wet it out.

    Thanks Chick, that is real helpful.

    Getting ready to plane down a flat for the skeg. At what point on the keel should I stop the flat? Is this something that is just determined by eye? The skeg tapers down to meet the hull at some point; where is that point?
