Contrary to what the wife thinks I can fix most things with a lil' epoxy and fiberglass!

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

So those are epoxied together and then wrap around the ribs in one big piece?

So technically I have now bled on my project. Good thing for paper towel and hockey tape in the bowshed. Hockey tape is almost as good as duct tape in emergencies!
You have to add a little DNA to the epoxy once in awhile. That way it'll become kin and it'll not beset you. And if it ever gets stolen you can prove it's yours.

BTW, have you been assigned a hull # yet? Hull Serial Number (HIN) - Transport Canada

The panels are laid on the strongback frame.





I'll setup the strongback after all the long panels are done. Once the panels are laid on they're stitched together with plastic wire ties to temporarily hold them in place. The seams are epoxy glued and taped and the wire ties removed. Once the hull is in this condition it can be fiberglassed and faired. When the outside is done it gets flipped and the same process is done on the inside. Essentially a monocoque construction method.

A HIN isn't required for a home built boat. I will register it though and have a proper hull ID number. I used to work beside the Chief Registrar when Coast Guard was part of Transport Canada.

Sorry James, those pics aren't of my boat. I'm not that far yet. I just posted them to illustrate how it's done. I should have said that.

I just glued & taped the first seams of the bottom panels. They're so big I have to do them in halves and join them later. Then I have to figure out where I'm going to store them until the strongback frame is setup and I can lay them on it. It's going to get tight!

If all goes well this week, weather permitting, I should be joining the halves together by next weekend.

PS. Short of amputation how do you get a deeply embedded sliver out of the pad of your thumb? Exacto knife? Needle?

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

I've always used a needle and a good set of tweezers. Sterilize the needle with a flame first.

Very sharp tweezers. You dig and dig until you get a hold of it. And with wood you'll still need to use an antibiotic ointment. Even the mini-micro fibers left behind will try to become infected.

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

The procedure I sometimes used to remove deep slivers that I received while living on a farm are not recommended by the medical profession, but it worked.

Let the wound become infected. The resulting liquid around the sliver plus the swelling will allow you to remove it. Be sure to disinfect the heck out of the wound when done.

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

I usually get impatient with splinters and cut them out with a razor blade sterilized in alcohol. Got to be okay with the sight of your own blood to do a good job, and probably not the recommended method. Make sure to sterilize and bandage well when you're done (duct tape over the bandaid will hold it on while you're working).

I tried the needle thingy, no go. Tried the tweezers, no go. Tried the rusty X-Acto knife, no go, couldn't get deep 'nuff. I guess I'll just have to wait till it festers and sets itself free!

I got the first half section of bottom panel glued up yesterday and will flip it tonight to tape & glue the backside. Slow but steady!

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

Keep an eye on it. Removing it now would be preferable to a "thumbectomy".

Sounds like you are making great progress on the boat.
