  1. It might be overbuilt as you said, but it will come in handy to repel borders. 😀
  2. Robert Uhh, are you really clumsy or were you an X-Games athlete in a previous life?😁 Craig
  3. I used the Pettit primer. Works good so far. When applying with a brush I did not get as smooth of a finish. Rolling worked better. I made the mistake of painting in my basement shop and the fumes lingered for a long time. After that all other painting was done in the garage where I could open the garage door and let the fumes vent much quicker. The Pettit paints had a strong odor but not as bad as the primer.
  4. Thanks Amos. First sail will be on Lake Lanier. This weekend might be a little too breezy for the shakedown cruise - darn Irma. Eventually I would like to take it down to the gulf coast.
  5. Painting is mostly complete. In the rigging stage. Need to mount the false transom, finish a few painting jobs, install all the hardware onto boom, ... The list goes on.
  6. Router and a trammel plate. Assuming you have the clearance for it;
  7. I have also heard it as "Perfect is the enemy of good" or "Better is the enemy of good enough".
  8. Good luck on the build and keep the pictures coming. There was no kit available when I built mine so you are already way ahead of the game. It is funny that you mention the bookcases and lawn furniture as I was just discussing the same thing with a fellow woodworker. He started building guitars, I started building boats. Craig
  9. The main hull has gone 3D. All the cross members are cut and fitted in place. Some are already glued in. The daggerboard trunk has been installed and secured to the dashboard. Fillets are done. Once all the cross members are glued in it will be time to flip it over to shape the chine. I won't need to call any buddies over to flip it. I have a finished basement that I am able to use for assembly. My workshop is not large so it helps to have this extra space and an understanding wife. I ran out of West System Epoxy and I am now using B&B epoxy. You can really see the difference in color on the fillets. Port side is West and Starboard is B&B. Trunk extends through the hole to be cut flush with hull bottom.
