In the old days 65-68 I used a lot of wood dust from table saws and epoxy mix to fill seams. Than applied 2 layers of 2.5oz cloth over the wet saw dust.

I have heard of guys using sawdust as a filler. I'm sure it works Ok. The wood flour is much finer and sanding is a breeze with it. I have also used pecan flour which is very very nice to work with, much nicer than the wood flour I just can't get it at a reasonable price anymore.

The tape I'm using is 9oz. from Noah's. It's very nice to work with but the price has skyrocketed since the last time I bought any.

Still puttering away at the fillets etc. Got some wood flour from a different supplier this time. Not quite what I expected but workable.

That's it. I'm done for the season. I'll be back in the spring when I get proper materials to work with. It was a good year.

The biggest milestone this year was the flipping of the hull. Given our short building season up here I've got about a year and a half's work into the boat so far.

Thanks for looking in Bill. I don't care to remember BE. That was a train wreck.

See you in the spring. Stay warm.

Is it the cold temp affecting the cure that forces you to stop?

That's part of it. I was going to build a tent over the hull that I could heat. It has more to do with getting the right materials (wood flour). Time to get ready for the annual hibernation & save some pesos for next spring!

My buddy Peter was in need of some 'Sandtherapy' yesterday so he showed up, sander & sandpaper in hand to work on my boat. He's had a bit of a rough time this summer & fall so he considers any chance to hang out in the boat shed 'Therapy'. Who am I to stand in his way of pursuing 'good mental health' eh?



He jumped right in and started at it. The temp outside was a balmy -5C and inside the shed the same. Ideal conditions for sanding as Peter says. Me, I like it a lil' bit warmer but after some consternation I suited up and we went at it for an hour or so before a 'breakfast' break of MRD's. (Meals Ready to Drink).



Working on a video, "Bull Sh*t from the Boat Shed" to be online sometime today.

Never thought of DYI as therapy before but that's just what it is. There's nothing like workin' on a boat, listening to music and not bein' bothered by anyone. On our boat we carry Gosling's Black Seal rum for makin' a "Dark and Stormy" the national drink of Bermuda (so I've been told.)

*Yawn* Rip Van Winkle is awake!

What a lousy start to the spring. Snow, rain, hail, sleet and more rain. The ground under the boat is soaked. It'll be awhile before it dries out enough to be able to walk on it.

I did manage to get into the shed this morning to fix an air leak in one of my air lines & make myself a new filleting tool.



There's a few more pics & details our blog which I just updated:

M/V She:Kon: Yawn! Is it time to wake up yet?

Now I go see what everybody else was up to this winter.

Cheers!
