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

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

Doing all of that on the hook? Not bad.

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

edit

MOORING but yeah a pain in the ass...but we have a friend with a nice honda genny...with all power tools needed like drills and sanders and even a shop vac

the tedious part is taking stuff to and from the boat

we just had a small volcano eruption in the east of the country and we had just rolled on the non skid gelcoat soooooooooooo ash is not a nice non skid ingredient soooooooooooooooooooooooo we will have to put on more gelcoat!

tis life

regarding that Im open to suggestions on what cheap non skid item like filtered sand I can paint on top of the gelcoat...basically the gelcoat is just a bottom primer...I need to add non skid as its VERY rubbed off at this point

thanks

cheers
