Thanks guys! Yes, all cuts will be chamfered and glassed. I'm not looking forward to that one bit. Flying gelcoat and glass when it's 90 and humid is no fun!

She is a big little boat. Probably has the most room of her peers.

We do not have as much heat and humidity as you, but when I had to grind out a lot of old gel coated inner hull surface to add some gussets for new tankage, I set up an old shop vac with a cardboard box section about 1' X 1', taped to the end of the 3" inch hose intake. This was kept in alignment with the outflow from my right angle grinder/sander disk. It caught about 90% of the dust and particles and helped a lot.

Cheers,
L

I'm going to look for some more shop vac hose and will try something similar for sure!

Started chamfering the joints. Hopefully glass the floor tomorrow. Nasty job! Grinding gelcoat and glass isn't one of my favorites!!! I'm itching a tad, thank god for BEER!!!

Update on my mast saga. Ordered 4' from Dwyer last week. Got it today! One step closer to sailing!

The sole is complete! Chamfered and glassed. I'll paint it eventually, i'm more concerned about sailing right now! Fun stuff - mixing epoxy this past weekend. My shirt and shorts were completely soaked through and through!

This is great, thanks for taking all the time to take pics. I just bought a 1979 Oday 23. I got it out of the lake and into a warehouse. We are headed there this weekend to work on her. Lots to do!

Good deal! Your boat will be considerably different than mine. The newer 23's had very little in common with my old girl.

Look forward to progress pics of yours!!!
