It'll likely get a lot dustier before I'm done Bash! The sentiment is nice though!

The old boat shed took a pounding yesterday.

I have visions of it taking off like Dorothy's house in Wizard of Oz. It's created a few restless nights. I'll be glad when I can finally take it down.

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

Today was a good day and a bad day. I said good bye to an ole' friend. My 6" RO air sander packed i in. She was a work horse and I'll miss her. I've looked for repair parts but nuthin'. Can't even locate the company. Looks like there's a trip to Princess Auto in my future!

9 Hr marathon on the boat today. Weather was fantastic, mid 70's all day. I spent most of the morning sanding the fabric edges around the keel/bottom join in prep for the next layer of glass. The afternoon, 3 hrs of it, was spent getting the next layer of 12 oz 0/90 on the keel.



Almost 2 gallons of epoxy, 12 pairs of gloves, two roller sleeves and a half dozen paint mixing pails!

Three more layers to go. *sigh* I'd like to be able to do two at a time but can't do it alone. Gonna try to fish up some helpers for the next round which will include the bottom panels at the same time (I think).

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

I got to watch another TW28 builder launch his project yesterday. Seeing this really helps keep the interest in my own project alive!



Stoere Meid was built in The Netherlands in just about 3 years. There's more details in our Web Log: M/V She:Kon: Another TW28 Launched....

As for my project the sandinsanity continues. Details on that are also in the blog update.

AC electricity and I have had a love/hate relationship going on for a long time. This morning I called it quits early not wanting to tempt fate any further.

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

Another marathon session with the epoxy & fiberglass. Added a layer of 12 oz 0/90 to the bottom. Both sides. Took me 8 hrs. Had a helper lined up but he never showed so I did it myself. Worked off the step ladder instead of climbing up on the boat which helped.

The Project Manager was barking orders.



Something to the effect "Get the damn thing done already, would ya?"

Web Log updated: M/V She:Kon: Another marathon session

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

There won't be any work in the boat shed today. Was up half the night in agony! I guess the energy drinks were masking the fact I was pushing it a lil' bit too much! Gettin' old suks!

I'm happy with the result. I could have squeegeed a bit more in some places but they were hard to reach from the step ladder.



We had a cool night last night and the epoxy is still a little soft. After some sanding of the fabric edge along the keel/bottom join I'll lay out the fabric for the keel and get that glued down. Likely Monday. Standby.
