Just Hatched

Recommended Posts

I have been the beneficiary of reports and pictures on this forum as I started my build and it is time to report in that I am making progress. I recruited help and unfolded my CS20 Mk. 1.1 last week. That process is pretty cool.


It is a Mk. 1.1 because it is the first CS20 kit and Graham and Alan tweaked it a bit to develop the kit. It was "hatched" because it will be named after a bird, as previous boats have been. Still working on final choice of which species; I will keep you posted. It will also take this hatchling a while to be fledged ...


This message is also a Thank You note for all the help and and advice you have provided.

Worth noting: the panels in the previous post that are "flat" on the cradle weren't really flat. They sat on the cradle for a few days and a couple of those had a greater impact on panel shape: my garage flooded in hurricane Florence. The okoume didn't get wet but it was warm and humid and there were a few flexes in the wrong direction. It has take a few days moving around a couple of buckets of chain to get the hull to follow the shape of the cradle and settle into proper form.

Nick, thank you for sharing the hatch.  As you may know that first big moment, the opening can be inspiring, thrilling and a bit intimidating.  Good job!  Look fwd to following of your birds fledgling moments.  And thanks for pictures
