So, what's the deal with the tabbing? I see how far into the bulkhead it goes; why not also that far on the hull? Sorry, not questioning what you did, I'd just like to understand.
hmmm I think its more of an optical ilusion...the white paint extends more on the bulkhead than on the hull...but basically its around 8 inches on either side...on both sides of the bulkhead
I used closed celll foam as a gap...on the side of the hull and up top to the deck down below they are screwed back into the cabinetry like stock....
all sides of the bulkhead and surfaces were epoxied 2 times so they are sealed and holes were potted twice too
this epoxy will later be sanded and varnished but I wanted the tabbing to be done so I could start painting the cabinsides and "roof"
that is what we are doing now...sanding and taking off all chopp strand mat leftovers that were left at the factory...sealing up with resin, sanding again and then getting some nice epoxy white paint like the tabbing has
thanks for the cheerup guys...glad you like the work...been having some issues down here lately and well lets just say its tough living down here sometimes but worth it in the end
Im so happy the boat is sort fo coming together
Im a fiddler by nature so I take apart stuff(well my helpers really) too fast, hence all the peripheral projects!
