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

Broke out the 8" High Speed Spinning Wheel of Death & Destruction. I couldn't find any aggressive grit discs and had to settle for an 80 grit. It worked fine.



I whipped across the bottom panel in about 45 mins. It's a bit of a beast to control with carpal tunnel in both hands. On the flat bottom panel I could lean on it a bit. On the vertical sides it wasn't so easy. I got the upper half of them done with the 8" and I'll finish them off this afternoon with the 6" RO.

More pics & nonsense on the blog updated: M/V She:Kon: Lunchtime update HSSWDD

Thanks for lookin' in!

Cheers!

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

Ready for goop tomorrow!





That lil' piece is about 30' long and 4' wide. I'm guestimating 1-3/4 gallons of epoxy & 3-1/2 hours.

Standby...

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

Gooped!



Web log updated: M/V She:Kon: Another Nibble

I'll hang the glass for the stbd side tomorrow and likely goop it on Wednesday. Once that's done it's switcheroo day moving all the stuff back to the stbd side so I can glass the port side.

Standby...

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

Hotter 'n hell here today. We had tornado warnings last night but most of the nasty stuff skirted by us to the north & south. Dodged a bullet methinks. I got out in the shed this morning with intentions of laying out the fabric for the stbd side fore to aft and glue it tomorrow. That didn't happen. I got the fabric hung up and it started 'screaming' at me to goop it! So I obliged.



Just a bit over an hours labour and a gallon of epoxy. Done. A wee problem with the edge sticking up in places from yesterday but the ball peen hammer (thumb adjuster) fixed that up. Just have to check that the bubbles have stuck down. It's almost 100 F in the shed right now, not a wisp of a breeze either. Fans going full blast make it somewhat tolerable.

Couple more pics on the web log update: http://she-kon.blogspot.ca/2015/09/star ... lwark.html

Cheers!

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

Too hot to work on the boat this afternoon so I stayed in the basement and tinkered. Tried to wrangle some tiny wires for the Mimic panel I designed.

Time for dinner. Popsicle's and ice cream!

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

Hit the shed early and got the stbd side ready for more glass. A lil' sanding on the tape edges and then laid out the glass & gooped it down. About 3 hrs total and 1-1/2 gallons of epoxy. Nice 'n neat, quick 'n dirty. Got out of the shed before the heat started to build.





Couple more pics on the blog updated: http://she-kon.blogspot.ca/2015/09/star ... layer.html

Tomorrow I'll do a lil' sanding on the stbd bow then lay out the 10 oz finishing cloth. That should go pretty quick too!

Standby....

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

Took advantage of much cooler weather today and spent a total of 7 hours sanding the inside of the boat in prep for the next layers of glass.



Sanded from stem to stern and keel bottom to bulwarks. Almost got it all done, just about a half hour left then I'll lay out the glass in the keel tomorrow and get that glued in. I don't have enough epoxy to finish the inside of the boat this year but if I skip the finishing layer for now I'll be able to get the stringers in before I have to call it quits for the year.

More pics and more of me whining on today's web blog updated: http://she-kon.blogspot.ca/2015/09/long ... -shed.html

Box keel port side & bottom glassed & gooped!

I says; "Honey! I dropped a wrench in the bilge again!"

She says; "No friggin' way, not this time HONEY my ass. Go fish it out your own dam self!"

I says; "Hard to get good crew anymore!"
