  1. @lenm Congratulations! She's an amazing looking boat. This is really the boat I want to build (but need space). Thanks for sharing the journey with us. Did you ever finish the model you built to match the finished boat?
  2. Rear starboard quarter looking forward: Forward port quarter looking rear:
  3. Sorry @lenm just saw this now. No, I’m painting it all. Fingers joints.
  4. So, seat tops finally installed: I sanded the edges top and bottom to provide a roughed surface for the glue to bond to. I have two temporary screws in each seat top to allow for proper placement with the glue. I used the spreader bars to get them in position and gravity (and a few bricks) for proper squeeze out. Forward cockpit beam all glued and clamped:
  5. Wire run installed and glued in with West System G flex epoxy with a bit of thickener. I have additional foam on its way. That compartment will be filled then the seat tops installed. After that, my plan is to flip the boat and finish the hull - primed, filled and top coated. Stay tuned.
  6. Port side filled with flotation foam and 11lbs of ballast. I have a wire run going through the starboard side that weights 11lbs and it was done for balance. I wasn’t interested in finding out whether 11lbs mattered after the fact.
  7. Almost ready to fill these compartments with flotation foam. Elbows glued and the inside joint filled with G Flex epoxy.
  8. 3” hole for a pvc wire run. Lightweight board insulation under the starboard seating. The pvc pipe will serve as a wire run from the outboard to the center console. I’ll use these as templates for the port side then install them. I may use big gap filler foam to form the box then mix up some flotation foam to fill the rest of the compartment.
  9. Profile with center console: Overview: Console needs to be finished, glassed and maybe primed before it’s installed for good.
  10. Center console front panel stitched and glued:
  11. Laminating a backing block to the starboard and port interior of the center console. I left equal distance around the sides to allow for the corner fillets to be put in when installing the for and aft pieces to the center console. Happy Memorial Day!
  12. This is a backing plate for the front of the center console that will hold the steering and other hardware. This small strip (as well as the backing plate) will be planed flush at the top to accept the top plate. The top plate will likely have a small handrail and compass. Temps are in the upper 50s so I have hours of working time with the epoxy.
  13. Yes, in both time and efficiency. I now realized I spent too much time smoothing out flotation compartments. So, while the forward compartment will not be ‘perfect’, it will be done and not take unnecessary time. I think it did make up some time applying multiple coats of epoxy to pieces before assembling them. You can cover a lot fast with a roller vs a chip brush.
  14. The drain channel is dry fit for now. I’m going to finish off this compartment before fitting the channels to make work a bit easier.
