Friday. This morning I spent 4.5 hours sanding the interior and sheer then coated the interior with epoxy. The next step will be building and fitting all the interior parts.
Thursday. Today I put in 3 hours. The mold is out of the shop, and the Pram is right side up. I sanded the sheer and the interior smooth and then filled all voids with epoxy mixed with wood flour. Tomorrow I’ll sand once again and vacuum and then seal all raw wood with epoxy! Then more carpentry.
Sunday. It’s my wife’s Birthday! Early this morning I masked off the boot and painted it jade green! The whole thing took maybe 30 minutes. This next week she’ll come off her mold and we’ll start on the interior! Stay tuned. Now to get ready for my Jody’s Birthday party!?
Friday. Today I spent 5 hours sanding and then painting the first coats of paint and varnish.
Thursday. Today I put in 3 hours sanding off the high spots prepping the hull for receiving the West 410 fairing compound. Then I applied the fairing compound. Tomorrow I will fair it smooth to receive paint. I then rolled on epoxy to the sheer plank and transoms that will be varnished bright.
Wednesday. Today I put in 6 good hours. I got the floor hull planks glued and screwed into place. I cut and fit the skeg. Then I removed the skeg and fiberglassed the hull to the top of the chine strake. Finally, I epoxy fit the skeg into place.
Tuesday. Today I put in 5 hours cutting the sheer planks flush with the transom. Then, I cut and fit the 21) 1×4 bottom hull planks. Tomorrow I’ll glue them down and then start the process of fiberglassing the hull up to the top of the chine strake.
Saturday. Today I spent 2.5 hours fitting the sheer planks to the transoms then cut, clapped and fit the gunwale guards to the sheer. Next week I will cut the planks flush with the transoms and begin planing and cutting the planks for the bottom of the hull.
Friday. Today I put in 3.5 hours scribing and planing the chine planks. Then mixed epoxy with wood flour and filled holes. The last hour I laid out and cut the sheer planks. We will wait for the the filler to dry, then tomorrow I’ll fit the sheer planks.
Thursday. Today I spent the morning spinning a couple of rolling pins! One out of Puget Island Ash and the other out of a seasoned branch of vine maple. For two hours this afternoon I fit the chine planks to the transoms. I cut them flush with the transoms by using a boat carpenter’s pull saw. As you can see…
