I didn't either. It's tight! I can see real advantages to being able to "spread out" on a project like this.

And don't forget the coins between keel and stempost as she's laid. French coin minted between 1440 and 1456 found hidden in keel of the Newport Ship
Thnx Del. I knew about putting a "good luck coin" under the mast but not he stem post. Seeing as this is essentially a monocoque composite construction I won't have a stempost to put a coin under! I'll figure something out.

Re: And So It Begins... Knottybuoyz' New Project

Last of the CnC parts cut out. Oh my aching back. Thank gawd for Robaxacet!



Somehow I have to organize this huge puzzle so I have room to work!

Re: And So It Begins... Knottybuoyz' New Project

Assembly table. 24' x 4'

Longest panel will be approx. 32' so it'll be sticking out the barn doors!

Re: And So It Begins... Knottybuoyz' New Project

The table wasn't strong 'nuff. It broke when I dropped a sheet of meranti on it so I had to rebuild it stronger.



I hope this doesn't set the tone for the whole project, having to do everything twice!

Rick:

Goodluck with the project I will be watching closely. You have been planning and gathering for a good long time. It must feel good to get started.

Thnx Charlie. A lifelong dream and seven years of planning. I only hope I don't screw it up and embarrass myself.

Thnx for watching.

Two years minimum. Three if I really take my time and get it right. I've got 3 yrs 10 mo till I retire so there's no real urgency. I've seen one of these (28' version) built in a year if you stick pretty much to the design (which I'm not).

I still have a daunting list of stuff to buy! Windows, range, heater, fridge, 35 gallons of epoxy, infinite improbability drive etc. mostly all bigger ticket items!

Re: And So It Begins... Knottybuoyz' New Project

Rick, congratulations on taking the next step towards achieving your dream! I suspect that two years will prove to be a very short period of time for such an elaborate project, regardless of what you still need to buy. Good luck amigo!

Brad

Re: And So It Begins... Knottybuoyz' New Project

Congrats Rick! I am so excited to follow the project here on this thread. It's going to be an inspiration for so many! We have to have a party and stream the christening live over the net!

What kind of time line are you expecting right now?
