    Core Sound 20 Mark III #3 "Jazz Hands"

    Shes coming out Saturday morning. .... it's all lined up. She's painted (pics soon) and a new basement door is waiting to be put in. Sawzall and Vaseline might be required!

    Chick, that is good to hear. Better the nose than the face.

    OK, I took the easy way out and taped a line at the waterline using a laser level. The big reason is I didn't have enough room to extend the V shaped pieces wide enough in my shop. We'll get that step done when she's on the trailer. I flipped the hull (getting easy now!) and painted the sides and then below the waterline. The hull is a nice grey. Super happy with the color. FWIW, I wanted to use a 2 part poly due to it's fuel resistance. I wound up using Interlux Perfection. On the bottom I used VC-17 (freshwater paint) over a 2000E epoxy coating. Tonight I start putting fittings on permanently. Yay!

    Now the fun begins! This forum is a lot of help. Have you built any boats before?

    Great pics Jay. Indeed she is beautiful as was yours and Pete's. I'm pretty fired up and closing in on being done. Next year I want to do an extended trip down in NC. Amos, you have to tell us how that sail was with your family. It sure was windy!

    "No, that isn't right. It needs to extend much more than that. Are these the drawing you are looking at? " OK, I must be dense as I am more confused as ever with this comment. Am I correct that the drawing shows the bottom of the boot stripe to be parallel with the DWL and 1.5" up? I'm getting the 1.5 from the "Outboard Profile" or cover page of the plans. If so, I plan to paint the grey to it and then pace the boot stripe over the grey. Maybe you didn't do that? But then wouldn't you have to tape the curved part things twice?

    OK, I need help. The drawing of the waterline is difficult to read and I'm at the hull painting stage. My interpretation of what I'm seeing: The "bottom paint" extends 1.5 inches above the DWL. This is my most important question for today as I'm ready to paint the hull. The top of the "boot strip" is 4.5" above the DWL at the bow and extends to the bottom paint (1.5" up form DWL). This is shown on the Outboard profile of the plan set but contradicts the "boot strip" plan sheet I got which may show the top at 5" The middle of the "boot stripe" is 2" thick 1.5 inches up from the DWL. The aft end is really hard to read. Maybe the "boot stripe" extends from 1.5 above DWL to 2 3/8" My plan is to pain the hull color (grey in honor of Carlita's first EC) down to 1.5 above DWL and put the boot stripe over it later.

    Old Codger's Keowee Misadventure

    Great adventure Chick. You need to bring Old Codger and your boat (Ha!) up to NY and take a trip down the Erie Canal. Your boat would be perfect for that adventure.

    Chick, I'm sorry you left, as I didn't get to talk to you much. It's interesting to travel up the creeks and explore. Old Codger is an excellent boat for that. In the spirit of teasing, I'll be interested in seeing next years boat!

    All right, since the availability of Hotels was limited due to flooding and my procrastination, and bringing enough supplies on the plane to properly camp is tough, I just rented a van and it's going to be like 1976 all over again! See you Friday. Somebody throw in a chair for me and I'll be forever grateful.

    Is anybody camping (not on your boat, like in a tent)?

    That water storage idea for working water is nice. I never did see Chessie at St Michaels, but I enjoyed your stories over lunch and dinner. Plan on me for crew this weekend!

    Chick, why didn't you tell me this before? That explains it all! Seriously, Bones, you're a good read.
