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

Thanks Warby!

Finally something worthy of reporting.

Spent the last few days trying to hoist my 6" x 6" x 16' i-beam up into the air! After a couple of failed attempts I managed to get it done and all by myself.



A few more minor updates on the blog update: Web log updated https://she-kon.blogspot.ca/2017/06/fin ... thing.html

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

I explained the results of my visit with the neurosurgeon yesterday on today's blog update: https://she-kon.blogspot.ca/2017/06/buttercup.html

I'm pooped or I'd write something more.

Cheers!

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

Today I got the upper portion of Frame B tabbed to the hull and Frame D set in place. I'll line it up and glue it to the hull tomorrow.



I'll just keep plugging away till I fall down and can't get back up. Few more pics on the blog: https://she-kon.blogspot.ca/2017/06/bet ... tures.html

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

Putzed around some more today. Back really seized up last night. Took it easy. After a fresh look at Frame D this morning I realized I had it all frigged up. The way I did it the thing floats in air so has to be braced eight ways from Sunday to get it in the proper place. After taking a wee tumble and wrecking it for the second time I cut some 2 x 4's for braces!



This part is on the starboard side just ahead of the v-berth. It'll likely become the Admiral's sewing table. And another overall view.



Measured twenty times. It's plumb & square as it should be. It'll get tabbed into place tomorrow along with Frame A. Gonna buy some cheap sheeting ply and put in some temporary decks.

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

Frame A and D now tabbed to the hull. I ran out of glue (epoxy & wood flour w/little cabosil) so ordered more. I hope to drop Frame F in tomorrow. That's the front part of the main cabin. Will have to build stairs over the engine space and down into the forward cabin. Engine should be finished soon.

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

The rains seem to have let up for awhile. Whoever out there is doing the rain dances, please stop!

Working hard trying to stop 'over thinking' every detail of this project. Just picked a task and go to it this morning.

[Sorry, pics are on Photobucket]

Filled the rudder voids with expanding foam. First time I've ever used this stuff. Neat.

More pics & a video on today's blog update: https://she-kon.blogspot.ca/2017/08/ove ... hings.html

Thanks for looking in.

Cheers!

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

It hasn't rained in 36 hrs! Wohoo! We may have turned the corner. Oh wait. Fack! More nasty weather in the forecast!

Anyhow I managed to get some puttering in. Two aft bulkheads glassed. Boat leveled (for now). And some poo on the rudder. Never, ever pour that two part foam over plastic sheeting! Never!

Fairing the rudder prior to adding reinforcements (biax glass and carbon fiber)
