Still contemplating that aspect of the job. Now that I see it upright it doesn't look too bad for hand laminating.

Built myself a set of steps to get into and out of the boat. Pulled out the support forms etc. It looks even BIGGER now! Was just admiring my handiwork when I had another one of those WTF have I gotten myself into moments!

How much room will be in the rear cockpit?I am hoping mine will be 6 long by 7'6" wide.I just need enough room for casting over the side,when I'm in fresh water.

I'd have to check but pretty close to that. We're not really big fisherpersons and are planning a full hard top. I guess we'll fish from the dingy.

Moved inside the boat today to start dressing the seams etc. for fillets & tape.



Took a lil' break before lunch and laid back in the bow. So quiet and peaceful and relaxing I fell asleep!

At least the inside doesn't have to be smooth as a baby's bottom.That is still a lot of sanding before bagging.You still planning to vacuum bag the inside?

Jury's still out on that. Leaning towards hand laminating it again to save money.

It would be a bit easier I think.Does GlenL call for ballast in the hollow keel?

I'm sure Bateau.com would be concerned if GlenL was giving out specifications for their boats!

Am still sanding in and around the bow area. The old epoxy glue is hard as diamonds! In the first five minutes I managed to destroy one brand new sanding belt and two disks, all 40 grit! The old epoxy just rips it to shreds!

Sanding can be very therapeutic to watch others do.

Progress is a good thing

I don't know why I was thinking GlenL.I know your boat is a stitch in goo from Bateau.It wasn't even that late when I posted that.Major brain poop.

Good update Rick.It seems things are picking up a little with the sanding.An 40 to 80 grit flap disc may have worked a little better on those rough epoxy joints and rough drips/globs.

Thanks.Three hours of sanding is rough enough. I hope your editing program has fast forward.It does look good.The inside will be as smooth as the outside.

I'm still nerved from watching you fellows right the hull. Had to go and pee but held it till you had her upright. Pretty tense...

Sorry 'bout that gotb, I tried to keep the suspense to a minimum.

Sanding inside the hull is done. Vacuumed out. Tomorrow I'll build myself a work bench for 'Inside' the boat and start filling the kerfs etc. Let's hope the weather cooperates awhile longer. Was about 40 F this morning when I went out to the shed in my short sleeve shirt & shorts.

Kerfs filled. Started fillets along the side/bottom joint. Almost out of materials so have to wait for more to arrive.



Learned a lesson. Don't step in wet epoxy then walk in the house and across the kitchen floor!

Did a walk around tour on video. You'll find that on the blog update; http://she-kon.blogspot.ca/2014/09/do-n ... epoxy.html

My buddy Andrew's coming by tomorrow morning so we should get the shed roof fixed finally.

Right out of supplies now. I managed to get about 25' of fillet done with the dregs of the wood flour bucket this morning.



Got a few days to wait for funds to hit my credit card before I can order more tape. Wood flour & cabosil are on their way so I'll still have time to get some more fillets done. Holy Crap there's a lot of them that need to be done!!!

How much effort is involved? Web log updated: http://she-kon.blogspot.ca/2014/09/how- ... olved.html

Standby.....
