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

Yes Minaret, there's plenty more work to do yet before you can call this a boat! I hope to get the seams filleted & taped this fall, maybe a coat of epoxy on it and I'll be happy to call it a year.

Here's the edited video. Probably took us an hour and a half to flip it. I edited out most of the ponderin' time and jockeying it sideways. The excitement (boom crash) doesn't happen till just after the 6 minute mark. The only casualties were one 2X3 and a pair of undershorts!



Few more pics & details on the blog update: http://she-kon.blogspot.ca/2014/09/hull ... s-pie.html

Rick,
in case your curious what caused the crash, if you hadn't figured it out. This corner was pushing against the ply about a minute as you were pulling, before it finally let go.

But great job! I've been waiting for this for a long while.

Hey Del

We knew the stack of bulkheads would be a problem. Had some 2x8's leaning on them and the workbench for the frame to slide off of. Got hung up there a couple of times. I originally had two tag lines on the frame to keep it from falling but the guys seemed to think we needed them more on the other side. Oh well, nothing got hurt so it's all good.

Three years it was upside down. Happy I'll never have to do that again!

Hope you and Lena are well and happy. Thanks for looking in.

As the former owner of a crooked steel hull... Make sure it's good and true again before you start

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

Thanks fellas. Don't worry Warby, she'll be level & true when I get to it next spring.

Managed to get my GoPro up on a stick to get a birds eye view!





The funny colored stuff on the port side forward is just left over epoxy glue I had that I used to fill the kerfs in the panel. You'll notice the other side doesn't have kerfs. The panels were cut wrong and the kerfs were on the outside. This caused a few problems but it seems to have worked out ok.

Hi Mike

Yeah, pretty much done for this year, the weather's turning into fall fast so it'll be too cold to do any epoxy work. Just going to button up the shed and put everything away.

I don't like making predictions on progress anymore. I'm already a year behind due to an injury. At the pace I'm going probably 3 years and it likely won't be completely finished when it hits the water.

Thanks for looking in.

Rick,

The whole thing looks good and I am thrilled with your progress. I shudder the time and energy it would take to build my own boat.

Button the shed up and get yourself a nice rum while the snow settles in.

Or you could drag it down to the river and stick an outboard on her and take her for a spin.
