Inside it'll have almost exactly the same except for two layers of Saertex and no satin. If that can't hold the plywood together I don't know what will.

The keel will be the same except the two layers of Saertex will be on the outside.

I has thought about a false stem, my friends Bolger Windemere has one and I like it. Don't think it'd be quite right on this boat though.
Well! That should hold it! It seems the wood will be just for a mold/form.

Don't think I'll be popping any more panels after this cures!

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

Spent many quality hours with Mr. Belt Sander this weekend and got the chines taped.





If you look close in the second pic you can see the flat spot where the spliced in extension is. This will disappear during the fairing process (I hope!).

I did much better on the other side.



Should have the keel sides stitched on tomorrow then have to winterize the ole' boat and get it ready to be tucked away.

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

Keel sides going up. Dealing with some alignment issues due to the extension of the hull. No biggie I'll just get to spend some more quality time with my belt sander!

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

Did you insulate the building? It's not so blue and looks a bit baggy inside now.

Just lined it with Tyvek. I don't plan on working out there in the dead of winter. The Tyvek keeps condensation from dripping on everything.

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

Ran out of ties!



Bulwarks going on. Ran into some problems with the sides flaring out farther than they should. They're about 5/8" off of the forms on each side. Causes the bulwarks to leave a fair size gap between them and the hull.



I had to rig a ratchet strap between the two sides and pull them in a bit to get the bulwarks to wrap nicely around the hull.



Good thing I bought those 1/2" bow eyes!

More shimming the keel getting it ready for gluing and taping this afternoon.

You look like you're ready to beginning layup?

It'll be awhile yet. Maybe in the spring. Cooling down pretty good here now. Only hit 50 degs F in the shed today. Little too cool for epoxy & fiberglass work. I could rig heaters I guess. Still have to glue & tape the keel.

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

The keel is now permanently attached to the hull.



That's all I got to show for 4 hrs work this morning but there was a lot of futzin' around shimming stuff etc.

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

Are you considering a Kevlar layer over the keel? It's fairly common here to help keep the floatsam from damaging bowstems and keels.

It can't be sanded, so one has to fair it in with a filler and put a FG layer to finish.

Already thought of that Del. I've got 5 yds of carbon fiber (Saertex) that I'll use on the stem and keel. We get the odd picnic table etc. floating down the river here!

Nice, finished wood products! All we ever get is the raw materials.

Nothing much to post so I thought I'd throw up 'nuther pic of "Turtle Bay" my friends Bolger Windemere he launched this fall.

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

Had to bring the epoxy inside last night so it didn't freeze. Guess that's pretty much it except for some sanding till spring.
