Her cabin ceiling. Slightly disturbing fixation on God, but whatever keeps her rowing! I found this entertaining.

Re: Nauticat 52 Refit

These people impress the hell out of me. Just had to post some pics of that. Hope you guys are entertained, as I was. And take a look at the website, who knows maybe you'll even buy Jordan's new book! It's worth a read...

This boats last trip was the NW Passage. That's why it was so dirty.

Re: Nauticat 52 Refit

Maybe a bit of "Foxhole" praying?

I think Roz Savage has done the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans. She is more Zen.

Re: Nauticat 52 Refit

Yup. Very cool. Must be tough to row one of these beasts so far. Sorry for the digression, but sometimes distractions happen in the boatyard. I think these folks make us humble sailors look pretty tame by comparison. More pics of Wanderbird to follow.

Re: Nauticat 52 Refit

I'm exhausted after yet another epic twelve hour day, but I'll take the time to post a few pics before losing consciousness.



Think I'll start posting pics of how we do a bottom job. Seems logical following the skeg and rudder pics. We start with a dry bottom that has been 16 grit hard padded, TSP washed and dried,then 202 wiped by two-towel method. Then we apply two coats of neat WEST rolled on and chemical bonded, followed by a full slick of troweled on WEST with 407. This is then followed, also by chemical bond, with a second pass of 407 with about 20% 410 added. All done with Fast hardener. Since this bottom is huge, we did stbd side one day, port the next. Obviously you have to hustle and have an experienced crew to do this. This bottom required 15 gallons of WEST to seal and fair, seen here.

Re: Nauticat 52 Refit

Two boxes of 407's and about half a box of 410.

Re: Nauticat 52 Refit

The big diesel heater. Usually we run a long duct from the output to keep the sooty exhaust well away from the boat. This has a thermostat on an extension so we can carefully control temps in the tent.

Re: Nauticat 52 Refit

Interlux 202, the ultimate cleaner/degreaser for structural fiberglass prep. Wear your respirator, if you spill a little of this stuff it eats big holes in the pavement! Leads to unhappy boatyard management...

Re: Nauticat 52 Refit

First coat of resin goes on neat. We use a 1/4" candy striper on a 9" frame and lay off well. Three guys do this stage, one mixer and two rollers.

Re: Nauticat 52 Refit

At this first coat stage, the guys applying resin stop an inch or so short of the tape at the waterline to prevent to much epoxy buildup over the tape line and make fairing in the waterline easier.

Re: Nauticat 52 Refit

While the first coat is still wet, we glass the ballast keel seam and shaft log. We have ground the lead ballast keel with 36 grit just before coating, and also rub it down with 60 grit wet/dry emery paper while the wet epoxy is on it. This is 3 plies of 10 oz boat cloth, 8", 10", 12".
