Re: Islander 36 projects in paradise!!!!!

last one for now



a pic of one of the chainplate holes Im filing away and beveling in order for the sealant and or butyl tape do a better job...Im enlarging them slightly so no sharp corners or bumps hit the chain plate and create stress cracks and Im also sealing them with epoxy first then beveling and filing again to shape...with my dremel and rat tail files.

notice that the deck is dry(yay) the wood itself, and if you have a good eye you can see the closed cell foam we used as a spacer between the top of the sealed bulkhead AND the cabin roof or top

tabbing will be added on both sides of chainplate, to the hull on the sides and the bottom has been reinforced too with glass and later on screws into the tabbing and bulkhead....

this HOPEFULLY will be much much stronger than original...tabbing was very very minimal on this pafrticular bulkhead this bulkead had a broken chainplate as it stretched beyond its limit due to water logged and damaged bulkhead

peace
