But I like the wood inlayed texture on the cabin. Kinda wish it didn't look like wood though because of the imitation context. Rather it was nondescript.

My favorite W30 is the Voyager that comes w/o a FB.

PNW Everyone's gonna want one now ya-know.

This piece with all the extra tape would JUST NOT LAY DOWN FLAT.... something to do with the curve of the gunnel and the grain of the fabric.... will have cosmetic issues.....

Things look to be coming along nicely! Curious if you are wetting the wood with thinned epoxy before putting the cloth on, or just wetting it through the cloth?

Good question. I guess from the series of pictures that I posted, I've given the impression I'm putting fabric on dry wood. Those pictures were just to lay out the pieces for size before glassing.

Most of the time I pre-wet the surface(s) with un-thinned but freshly mixed warm epoxy, which is fairly low viscosity. Large horizontal surfaces (roof sections, front deck) I didn't pre-wet the wood.

My workshop is about 15C, so I keep my epoxy in a warmer, so its less viscous and mixes better. The cooler temperature of the shop and the materials helps slow down the kick-off, to maximize working time.....


End result isn't too bad. In fact, this part looks good!

Very nice. I like the width of the rail cap. She’s turning into a really good looking ship.

Thanks Marty!

The width will allow for easy attachment of down riggers, and pot haulers. This will very much be a fishing boat.

Here is a younger version of me, with a younger version of the boat, with a nice young halibut.

I just came across this build. I’m really intrigued and can’t wait to see the finished product! Keep up the good work and pictures! Out of curiosity how much do you think this build will cost you in the end.

Thanks for your interest. I can't wait either, but I suspect I'll never be truly finished.... As for costs, I try not to think about it.

I'm putting in long days, but on top of that, it takes motivation/discipline to keep at it, in a world full of distractions.... I given up my other interests for now.....

But this is fun, but now some of the less exciting things need to get built.

The cutouts for the fuel fill are being lined with glass/epoxy. One thing that was evident when tearing down the old boat was that any areas with metal penetrations into wood showed significant rot degradation compared to areas that didn't. Thus, all weather penetrations of metal into wood will be invaginated by epoxy.

PNW...
I've been watching your amazing progress silently from the sidelines. I am amazed at your progress and persistence.
As I see this materialize I have to wonder and inquire...
Did you have a detailed plan / design from the start?
Was this basically a rebuild of the previous design?
Basic concept then add to it as you progressed?
Only a vision of the overall look and worked out details along the way?

Do you sleep? Or just rest a bit but dream about the next day / step work?

Amazing work... can't wait to see it in the water!

Hi Bacchus (great name, BTW )

Thanks for your interest and replying to the thread. Great questions.

1. Detailed plan? No, a couple of pictures of Chesapeake Marine Designs Trailer Trawler 28 by Karl Stambaugh, the North Pacific 28 on which it is based, and of course my interest in raised pilot house trawlers. i did not buy any plans.

2. Basically rebuild of previous? No. Take a look at the pictures of what the boat used to look like near the beginning of the thread.

3. Basic concept and then add? Kind of... I knew what I wanted the end result to look like, and I figured that as I progressed, I would intuitively know what the next step would be. I have been extremely blessed in this regard.

4. Only a vision of the overall look? Kind of this too. But I've been also blessed that what I've done (in most cases) has turned out as well as, or better than I expected.

5. Do I sleep? Thats privileged information! haha...Yes, but I live and breathe the boat project every day.

I have worked hard, without taking leave. Momentum and the love of what I'm doing carries me, along with the motivation I get from the positive comments from members here, along with some deeply personal motivations as well. I put in work every day. When not physically working on the boat, I'm still thinking, planning, ordering parts, and whatnot.

I think it has helped that I'm really enjoying the work. I am getting tired of epoxy (after having extra haircuts because I'd get it in my hair), but epoxy is this amazing construction material that allows things to come together quickly, without having to have woodworking perfection. If you have wood, and epoxy, you can make just about anything, and fairly easily, without special skills.

A big thanks to everyone for your interest in my project!

This is an awesome thread and project. I click on it constantly. Your design for what’s pleasing to the eye is awesome. I’m always torn about what looks right. When I look at your project my eye seems to take in the whole boat and not focus on one area and to me that’s a huge deal. Great job, very inspiring.
