The keel will get separated into two sections with the main bulkhead. There wasn't a sump designed but I've been giving that some thought. There are some new low profile bilge pumps that'll get near everything out. Sort of thinking I'll put one of those in each section. I also have a 4000 GPH crash pump!

Yeah someday I hope to get my rec room back instead of the Chandlery that's in there now! We've been buying stuff for the boat for about 8 years now. I have so much stuff I caught myself almost buying duplicates so I created a visual inventory.

That's the bulk of what we have already to go in.

Thanks for looking in.

Cheers!

A easy way to create a low spot is to jack up the stern a bit then pour resin in. When the boat is level the rear will be the low spot.

Rick,
The way I see it, once finished with the boat, your gonna have a new boat and a new house. Just think of all the time your gonna spend on remodeling the house....at least you'll have the boat to live on while doing that! A vicious cycle!

Sounds like a man speaking from experience eh John?

I had stipulations put in place before I started the boat. New roof on the house. Check! New front porch on the house. Check! Pave driveway. Check! New furnace. Check! Landscape back yard. Check!

Luckily it's a small house. Only cosmetic stuff left to do after the boat's finished.

Thanks Forky!

Took a day off to rest up the hands and get away from the cats & boat shed. Did some good!

This morning's adventure was a lil' sanding and they laying out some fiberglass for the transom, keel & bow section.



Totally out of 12 oz 0/90 now so had to improvise on the bow section. Dug up some of the 33 oz triax I used on the bottom panels and filled in the bow section. That stuff is heavy & soaks up epoxy like a sponge!

More pics etc. on the blog update: http://she-kon.blogspot.ca/2015/09/litt ... there.html

Got my butt kicked right and proper today!

Tried to put two layers of glass & peel ply on the transom! Wet on wet they say. The 12 oz 0/90 went fine. I'm used to working with that. Next up was a 12 oz plain weave I have as a finishing layer. OMG! What a friggin' battle that was. It fought me every step of the way. It would not wet out. It would bunch up. It would bubble. It would fall off. It would wrinkle. After about an hour and a half struggling with it I finally managed to get it on half assed and the peel ply over it.

I don't think it's going to be too pretty. Luckily it'll all be hidden when the boat is done! Not my best work by any stretch of the imagination.

Pics & non-Sanding video tomorrow.

I need Rum & Coke!

Yeah. The wife put me on something called a 'low carb diet' which means no more cheezeburgers & potato chips! I think I dropped about 15 lbs since the 'murder in the boat shed' episode. The only problem is when she works nights I cheat and go to Burger King for chicken sammiches, 2 for $5!!!

Climbin' up and down into and out of the boat 500 times a day helps to I think.

Watch out for wives swinging the low carb hammer. Mine has me on something called a Paleo diet and it's amazing how much it sucks.

Off topic but: I have an acquaintance who says his doctor has him on the simplest diet of all time. If it tastes good spit it out- it is not on your allowed foods list.

Greetings,
Thread drift alert BUT it is applicable to Mr. Rick...Most, if not ALL "diets" are fads at best. The honest truth is NOT what you eat but portion control. One should eat a balanced diet by following the applicable national food guide/rules in amounts suggested. This will insure an appropriate intake of calories necessary for daily function. In Mr. Rick's case... Canada's food guides

My doc told me to get rid of the 'wheat belly'. Cut out all the white breads & processed food. *Sigh* Unfortunately they're the ones that taste good!

Fought this my whole life. Gotta be genetic. That's what I get for dipping into the shallow end of the gene pool! I was doing good till I hit 29 yrs. Played hockey five nights a week. Ran 10K every day. Was a steady 175 lbs. Then my knees went out and I caught Mono & Strep Throat at the same time. Haven't felt good since.

Greetings,
Mr. Rick. Ask your doctor how much training in nutrition he has. LOTS of conflicting/incorrect information out there even amongst the professionals.
