Open to suggestions tho so I'll revisit that suggestion when I finish skim coating the superstructure.

Thanks for bring it up mate..!!

The cabin on my charter boat was rebuilt 12 years ago out of plywood and covered with epoxy and biaxial cloth. They cut the window openings slightly over size and soaked the edges with epoxy. Then wrapped them with biaxial and epoxy. After fairing and sanding they dry fit the windows and drilled the screw holes. Then they removed the windows and drilled all the screw holes with a 1/2" drill. The holes were filled with epoxy bonding putty so that when the windows were permanently mounted, the wood was all sealed and the screws went into epoxy not wood. The process is time consuming, but the wood will never rot around the windows. Don't know if you going to seal the wood on the inside around the window or not. Wrapping the opening seals the wood better than any tape or caulk can.

Keep up the good work!

Ted

Matt,

It's been quite awhile since I last signed in. I can't believe the Progress you've made on "The Boat."

I took the time to look at the latest pics of AXE and am impressed with the design. She's certainly a "looker."

Keep up the intensity (If that's at all possible!)

Bit trickier to do and is a lot wetter/runnier than doing each step individually but I just saved myself 4 hrs of sanding in the one section alone that I did today, not to mention $$$$ from product waste.

Had a friend once that got his pix into the sports page of his giant snow goose limit. He was so proud till the warden knocked on his door and fined him $5,000 x 2 = $10,000 for killing two trumpeter swans of whitch there were only a couple of doxen left in the pacific flyway. Think that was like 1975

We all had a good laugh at his expense

Ted that sounds like a great way to seal a window. Love the "screws into epoxy" approach.

Some of the better built vessels use similar methods like Grady white

G'day Ted,
Thanks for your input mate. I've had a bit of rain during the week and the ply started to lift around the window where I didn't get to epoxy yet. It's panicked me so I'll be doing what you recommended.

Thanks again mate..!!

Endangered? Crikey. Didn't know that. Well they've gone and found a new home now. Hopefully is less noisy and dusty than being on AXE

Does it matter when the windows go in? Is it better adhesive adherence to do it once it's painted or doesn't it matter?

Hendo's Randall 35 Cray Boat complete rebuild, Perth, Western Australia

Had a bit on this week. My timbers arrived on Monday. I ordered 2@300x65x6.0 and 1@200x65x3.0. Got the Stbd cap rail on. Glued, glassed and filleted and skim coated in sanding filler. I've made them nice and wide tapering from 200mm at the stern to 280 fwd. I think once they are all on the width will look great. I've also Been chipping away at the sanding and recoating of the fairing filler. 5 days of sunshine so the tarps are up and I'll make the most of my time after work.

Matt, cap rails look real good! Definitely want to dry fit the windows before painting, then paint, and install the windows and hardware over the finished surface. The actual masking and painting is much easier. If you have a paint problem, it's much easier to sand around the window hole than carefully up to the window itself.
