I almost frigged it up totally. Luckily I made the measurements with the engine set as far forward as possible and have 4" of travel for adjustments.

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

Took a few more lil' nibbles out of the whale today. Filled in the hole for the prop shaft support then turned my attention back to the forward cabin again.



Should have the rudder & skeg back this coming week then I can finish up the arse end of this thing!

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

Plan this morning was to get both small bulkheads in. No way, I was rolling around in the 'poxy! Frig, my left butt cheek is now waterproof and I smell like French Fries (again)!



Got one in. Second one tomorrow once the epoxy sets up. Just too messy & cramped to move around.

Basement bulkhead #2 filleted, taped & glued.

Trying to find sole panels for the forward section. Man o' man would it be nice to stand on a level deck!

Drilled a few holes in the skeg & got a call to go see machine shop guys to finalize details on rudder fab.

They say it's not the size of the rudder but how you use it... I wish I had known that before I went to the doc for my operation...

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

Made a few of my own modifications to the rudder this morning.



I'm certainly no welder. Spent a good deal time more on the grinder afterwards!

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

Added a few gussets from scrap sitting around. Can't hurt and cost virtually nothing.
