Re: Building a Wharram Hitia 14


In this video I am doing some sanding and cleaning in preparation for making the fillets and panels look much better. Most of this will not be visible later, but I still want to do it, because I am learning a lot about the materials and methods that I am using. I am feeling so good when I am working on my boat.

Re: Building a Wharram Hitia 14


I did not do so much today. I just cleaned up the sanding dust again and fixed the aft deck stringer.

Re: Building a Wharram Hitia 14


In this video I receive the sails, running & standing rigging & deck hardware from Rolly Tasker Sails in Thailand. At first I contacted them to order the sails, but I was very delighted that they are also able to provide running & standing rigging and deck hardware. I am very satisfied about how the team of Rolly Tasker Sails helped me with all the things I need for my Wharram Hitia 14. I am also very happy that they labelled every item, because I am not yet familiar with everything.

Re: Building a Wharram Hitia 14


In this video I am making the fillets look a bit better & apply epoxy coat on the inside hull panels & bulkheads. Another 3 work hours. Not much interesting happening, but I am just documenting all my work on the Wharram Hitia 14.

Re: Building a Wharram Hitia 14


In this video I am using epoxy and nails to fix the fore and aft deck panels in place. While I am doing this my neighbours are happy it's Saturday evening and playing music and drinking beer.

Re: Building a Wharram Hitia 14


I am trying something new here in the description, adding the precise time in the video with a description of what I think I am doing there

0:05 marking the location of the stiffeners
0:20 cutting the stiffeners to the correct length with the jigsaw
0:25 drilling holes for copper wire that keep the stiffeners in place while the epoxy sets
0:35 applying unthickened epoxy on the stiffeners
0:40 applying thickened epoxy on the stiffeners
0:45 removing clamps that held the fore and aft deck panels in place while the epoxy hardened
0:50 removing nails that held the fore and aft deck panels in place while the epoxy hardened
1:00 removing the copper wire that held the stiffeners in place while the epoxy hardened
1:05 coat the inside of the deck panels with 2 layers of epoxy
1:21 i wish it wasn't so, but at some parts the sheer stringer did not adhere flat on the hull. I fill the gaps to the best of my ability with thickened epoxy
1:25 seeing how the deck panel will fit
1:30 using copper wire to stitch deck panel to bulkheads, later I decide to use clamps, because my copper wire is probably too thin and I feel it is not strong enough to keep the curved deck panel in place

Don't watch this video if you don't enjoy looking at someone making epoxy fillets.
