re: Hugh's Log

It took a couple of weeks to source the wood for my gunwales and a few trips to Home Depot to stock up on clamps and then a week or so of scratching my head before calling up one of my buddies to come help me out, but now I've got breasthook and gunwales installed. Next will be the forward bulkhead and transom and then the critical step of making sure the boat is square before I start epoxying the seams.

p.s.: Anyone know how to rename a thread? Since I plan on using this thread long term to chronicle my journey into the world of sailing I was hoping it could be renamed 'Hugh's Log' .

thanks,
Hugh

re: Hugh's Log

I've installed the forward bulkhead and I spent a couple of days planning down the gunwales and installed the forward and nesting bulkheads as well as the transom. I checked that the boat was square and then tack glued the seems. Once that was dry I was able to remove the wires holding the boat together. I did check that the boat was reasonable true before epoxying the seems. While it maybe wasn't perfect the bubble was between the lines of my level everywhere I checked so I called it close enough.

Since I've taken these pictures I've filleted all the seems in the aft hull and started laying the fiberglass tape around the nesting bulkheads. I hope to finish taping up the interior of the boat this week. I'm hoping to have the boat done by May but if that's going to happen I need to spend more time actually working on it and less time staring at it and daydreaming.

re: Hugh's Log

Looks great! So much fun to see a boat rise out of a pile of wood. It might be a more difficult road, but, I really like the idea of building a boat to learn to sail, that you will later use as a tender for a bigger boat. Are you building the nesting version?

re: Hugh's Log

Yes this is the nesting version. I really couldn't store a 10'+ boat where I'm currently living. While the non nesting version is a better boat especially when it comes to bailing it out (It can use a single self bailer and has much more reserve buoyancy ) the nesting version should give me a lot more flexibility when I start shopping for my big boat since I'll only need 5'6" x 4' to store the tender on deck.

re: Hugh's Log

Lots of slow progress the last few weeks. I've not gotten all of the interior seams filleted and taped and am about 2/3rds of the way through with the aft seating. I've included a picture of my fancy filleting tools. I figure I have about another days work and then I can flip the boat and start fairing the hull.

re: Hugh's Log

Looking very much like a boat. Nice work.

Isn't there a center board slot/trunk?

re: Hugh's Log

Thanks, there's going to be a centerboard trunk just ahead of the bulkheads. I haven't started building it yet. It'll account for about 2/3rds of the parts I still have lying around.

re: Hugh's Log

Since I last posted I did a fill coat on the interior fiberglass seems and flipped the boat and rounded the chines and filled in all the holes. Now everything is nice and smooooth. I've also started work on the dagger board. The next step is flipping it back over and chopping it in half.

After the plane my second favorite wood working tool is my soldering iron. If any of your temporary (or permanent) screws get epoxied in you can just heat*up the screw with the soldering iron and the screws come right out. You can also use it to remove globs of hardened epoxy. A lot less work then trying to sand them down.
