Lady J, week four, progress seems slow, though it really isn't.

Time for an update. Some of the issues faced this week are iron sick floors, sprung planks and a bad plank, along with the seam reefing and detailing of the planks for varnish. I picked up a nice piece of Sapele for the bad plank and took care of it today.



I cut the piece and fitted it in with shims at first.







I bored the new screw holes prior to glue up and thenmixed epoxy and mahogany sawdust. I set the scarph joint with screws and let it cook a bit before I had big Zach press the new plank flush while I drove screws.



It flushed out nicely.



The boys worked the seams again today.



I should do these last three salon ribs tomorrow.



and so it goes....

Like most projects...staring at it is usually scarier then doing it.

Bet the old girl hasn't been this dried out in a LONG time....Im sure that has its minuses as well.

"Go Simple...Go Large"

Relationships are everything to me..everything else in life are just tools to enhance them.


The purchase price of a boat is just the admittance fee to the dance...you still have to spend money on the girl...so court one with something going for her with pleasing and desirable character traits others desire as well... or you could find yourself in a disillusioned relationship contemplating an expensive divorce.

Love this series, wish more people were working on wooden boats so I can learn from watching. Keep up the posts, please, it's a whole 'nuther boat world from fiberglass.

It may be a hole in the water, but it's mine.

Yeah, the plank edges are real brittle. That's a fine looking bit of wood there... I like working with wooden boats. There's a certain satisfaction not found in my former career.
