I'll have a heap of sand bags with me until the weight and trim is stabilised before taking the slings off her and making lead shot in resin plates. I'll need to do this at the slips because it's a 1.5 hour voyage from the slips to where SOLSTICE will be moored. I might even chuck a few extra sand bags in the tender and tow it on her first trip home so I can adjust trim underway. When I first pull her out for her annual haul out and bum clean I'll be able to gauge where the water level is and be able to add a boot stripe to her and bring the anti foul up the sides. Until then I'll just do the bottom and about 100mm up the sides.

Sounds good. At least you are launching straight and level, that's a good thing. It allows the hull to develop it's full stability without creating any capsize force.

You can do a preliminary stability check while she's in the slings. Just spend a few minutes moving around on deck, the boat should move underfoot but pop back upright as you move to the centerline. If you stand on the rail (deck edge at the side) and the boat goes down a bit, then comes back with you standing there, that's decent positive stability. If you stand on the rail and she goes down at bit and stays down, that's less good. But as long as it stops before rolling you into the water, you still have some positive stability. If you step on the rail and she rolls down and keeps going until the straps stop her or she hits the dock, that's bad and work is needed. Namely more ballast.

Just a couple of hours today due to other appointments but had to see how the sleeve I made yesterday came up. It turned out great so I started to fit it to the hull liners and getting the recesses sorted and even. The outside will be trimmed flush with the outside and will look sooo sexy once painted with a black hull and chrome window surrounds ..!

No worries Eric. Thank you mate. Not sure if I did it right or not but they worked out great using items I had on hand. I'll be filleting them and prepping them before it goes and fixes to the hull and glassing the outside edge to the hull skin before continuing the flare up the hull.

Thanks for your support Eric. I appreciate that you question me and make me think about what I'm going to do moving forward.

Thanks mate.

Today I finished off the Starboard side superstructure and began to move fwd and doing the walkway, the toe rail and the fwd cabin side. I skim coated the window surround also. I have filleted and fitted some fairing guides on the flare to give me something to "screed" the epoxy off to to help the flare take shape. Once the epoxy has dried I'll unscrew and remove the plastic covered timber strips leaving an epoxy guide to work with. Bloody great idea I reckon lol

Update from Friday:-
Today I did some more filleting and sanding. The guides I fitted yesterday were moved and applied again to reduces the gaps.

Greetings,
Mr. H. IF you're going to fill the spaces between those strips with fairing compound you're adding even more weight above the waterline mate. I'm getting very concerned about stability, both for Solstice AND myself (another topic...). Do you have space for adding ballast in the bilges for what I'm feeling more and more may have to be a LOT of ballast.

While she's looking absolutely marvelous, given the amount of ballast you may have to add will put her low in the water and a real pig to move...

Hi RTF
Yep I will be skim coating the area with thickened epoxy.

Cheers mate.
