  1. Russell- THANKS for posting pics of your build! It looks great and it is really helpful for me to see how you have done things. Keep up the good work and inspiration for me to get to the next step. I believe the 16mb is a limit of the size of any one set of pics per post. I don't think any of my days would be complete without spending at least an hour messing around with computer stuff that doesn't work. Now, up to my shop with some good carrots to keep me moving. Cheers, Ken
  2. A first, WOW! Not sure I should be proud of that one.
  3. Well, you are both on the right track. It was indeed me punishing myself in front of the Canadian Gods of Boatbuilding before my wife had a chance to do it for me and for not taking up a saner way to spend time such as stamp collecting. My dislexia had me set the head stand up in the wrong direction since I wanted to get a final glimpse of my work as I had been seeing it for the last few months :). In any case, that was one ugly Girly Man best viewed upside down. Carpal Tunnel much improved!! Amazing what a few months away from beating the daylights out of my body can do. Dave, you hit the ring nail on the head about seeing the boat upright. Was a real shot in the arm to see the hull upright and a welcome break from twisting and contoritng my neck to try and see if everything looked right! The blank canvas ahead is both exciting and a bit daunting. I look at your beautiful Bluejacket build pictures occasionaly and it is inspiring but also a bit intimidating to see how much lies ahead. Your boat is BEAUTIFUL!!? Will it get wet soon? Cheers, Inverted Ken
  4. Don- This is a perfect example of mission creep. The original plan was to build an OB 20. Long story short it got enlarged to an OB24 and then I asked Graham for a few modifications and the OB26 was born. I should know better:). Ken
  5. Thanks Steve. I wonder about the weight myself. The plans are a work in progress and Alan is currently doing a weight study. I will let you know when I have more info. dheers, Ken
  6. Hi All- We flipped ROSIE on May 31st. Had a great group of friends and additonal help from the local lumber yard's truck. All went well with a couple of exciting moments. So glad to have many competent hands to help! This was the first time I was able to step back far enough to see the full beauty of the design. The interior is now a blank canvas and I have been busy fiberglassing. Here is a link to a time lapse video of the flip. Cheers, Ken
  7. After a 3 month break to get some sun and let my hands heal I got back on the project in the middle of April. It was hard to be away for so long! When I left it was time to start fairing the hull and begin fiberglassing. I have been getting a bit of help from a young women, (when did 32 become young?) who wants to learn about boatbuilding and woodworking. Up until now this has been a solo project. Great to have another set of hands mixing epoxy and spending some time behind the torture board. The enthusiasm of youth is wonderful! The hull is quite fair at this point, all exterior fiberglass completed, and antifouling paint applied to the DWL. I will raise the antifouling up a few inches after flipping and the bootstripe and finish LPU is applied. Having the DWL readily marked will make leveling easy after the flip. Should flip "ROSIE" over in a week or two after spraying some high build and finish primer to the topsides. Used Interlux 2000e barrier coat on the bottom and will apply Alexseal epoxies and LPU on the topsides. I am very excited to see her coming to life. The lines are a thing of beauty. Hat off to Graham on his artistry on this one! Here is a link to a video of one hour of fiberglassing condensed into 17 seconds. Would love to figure out how to do that in real life! Here is a link to a photo album with captions of the build so far if you want to see more detail. Cheers, Ken
  8. Hi Guys- thanks for the insights! Since my own personal edge isn't as sharp as it once was I might has well keep the edges a bit soft on my chines... Glad to save some work and be able to get back to the Torture Board. Cheers, Ken
  9. Thanks for the input Egbert.
  10. Wondering what some of you Bluejacket Builders did? Any guidance from Tom on spending time sharpening the edges? Thanks again. Ken
  11. PAR- I am talking about an Outer Banks 26. Doubt I will be racing it:). Just dont want to be racing to the gas pump. Cheers, ken
  12. Hi Guys, How much effort is it worth to take the 3/8" radius on my chine and transom edges and sharpen them? I rounded them prior to glassing and know that sharper edges are more efficient but also more prone to damage. I don't have a sense of how much difference I will notice in terms of fuel efficiency, etc. Any wisdom appreciated. Thanks! Ken
  13. Bob- I don't think there is a completed OB24 yet. Here is a link to Russell's OB24 which will have a differnet cabin then the original design. Around a year ago I had the same inquiry as you and long story short am building an OB26. Graham and Alan are still putting the finishing touchs on the plan set. Below is a link to my build. Should be flipping it over pretty soon. Mine will have a slightly longer trunk cabin and a recessed anchor well in the bow. I will update this page soon with recent progress. Cheers, Ken
  14. Jim,c I am intrigued by EZ ACDC. Never heard of them before and wonder if the quality is top notch. I have done lots of marine wiring but don't need to reinvent the wheel. Anything that gets my Outer Banks 26 in the water sooner is appealing. Any other thoughts or comments appreciated. cheers, Ken
  15. Beautiful boat! Thanks for the info. Ken
