I love seeing the photos and watching something that you have planned for so long come to life. It's looking great, keep the photos coming!

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

Quick Update: 3/4's through the side panels now. I flipped the 32 foot side panel by myself this morning to tape & glue the backside. I'm really glad I installed the electric winch!

The only thing that'll take that off is a grinder or a power planer. I prefer the old power planer. Works quick and I can control the depth. I have 4 of them like that to do.

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

more importantly why are you getting failed laminates?

if i may be so bold would sugest thickening the resin with a tiny amount of collodial silica,makes it slightly less viscous and less prone to trapping air on underside joints.

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

Thanks for the offer Rick. If I thought there was a chance it might happen I would take you up on it, but alas I doubt I will ever be building a boat.

Remember Henny? Workshop
He found that 2 hoists worked really well.

Keep up the good work. I've enjoyed the project from the beginning and look forward to seeing the launch.

That was my fault. I tried to do both sides at once. I have had pretty good success before, doing one at a time. I was doing 4 at a time this time and that's where I messed up. It's all fixed now. I've been using pecan flour for thickening epoxy when I butter the ends of the panels. I really like it but it's very important you never sneeze when the container is open!

Thnx Frz

If you ever change your mind they'll be here. I doubt I'll ever build another one. IIRC it was Henny's workshop and the description of the two hoist method that got me to put up mine. I use a spreader pipe on the long panels and clamp the edges of the panels so they lift really well and easily. I've got 3 1/2" eyes in the ridge of the shed. One with the hoist and two with rope falls.

It'll likely be the summer of 2013 before this thing gets wet. Can you hold out that long?
