We just started another K-40...

We just started work on this Kettenburg K-40. It's a quick and dirty structural job. Fifty one ribs, transom, aft deck, cockpit walls, cockpit sole, cockpit benches and belowdecks bulkheads. Seams and paint. As you can see, she's rough as a cob.
The boat

The transom

The cockpit

and

The salon

and

The galley


There's more but I figured you'd get the hint....

Yeah, the owner ripped out all of the rotted ply for me to save some money.

Here's the progress on K-40 #35 as of Saturday.



The wood is starting to show as we strip her down.






The transom is about ready to come out. Lot's of hidden screws buried in there, both under the ply and under resin that somebody slopped on. That slopped on resin caused the rot of three plank ends that I'll have to replace.






We pulled the aft deck, only to find that the rot caused by the piss-poor propane locker install, creeped past the line we cut at.






Now we have to pull the cockpit coamings and move the cut further forward. The rot also extended into some ribs. Charles also found rot in the sheer clamp so we'll have to scarph in a new end section.







I'll do another posting tonight to show the speed of the project.
