Got all the holes drilled & gouged out. Managed NOT to cut all the way through!

A good healthy coat of mold release was on the bolts and I stuffed them 'up' through the holes in the bottom of the keel. Taped them in place and backfilled the holes with epoxy & chopped strands.



When these are setup tomorrow I'll pull the bolts & sand smooth. Inching every closer to installing the skeg.

Few more pics on the web log update: https://she-kon.blogspot.ca/2016/08/dri ... lling.html

Good idea there,to give the engine something to land on, if it breaks away.

Greetings,
Mr. SK. Is it just the camera angle or are those bolts not in line?

Not sure which bolts you're referring to. The plates on the gin pole?

Ah ok. These ones.



Yes, Three are in line. The bottom one is a 7/16". It's dead nuts on center and used to align the skeg. The first from the top and 4th are 1/2" and will bear most of the load of the skeg. The remainder are offset just a bit to prevent the skeg from 'wobbling' along the axis. I couldn't spread them any farther out and leave enough material for the nuts to fully seat inside the channel side.

I just knew you had this bolt location planned out. Now it's time for a sit down with several beers to contemplate the next step!
Cheers!

Takin' a couple days off to enjoy the nicer weather. I know could be very productive days in the shed but I needed a break.

Back at it tomorrow.

I managed to spill some paint in the bilge today!



Took the last two days off. Very nice cool weather here but my get up and go, got up and went. Maybe just needed a break. Short day today too. Can't do much with wet paint inside the boat. Back at it tomorrow.

So our lil' Yanmar huffer has a seized governor rod in the fuel injection pump. The mechanic is trying to free it up to save the $1K rebuild fee. I appreciate it if he can. If not I'm willing to bite the bullet and get it rebuilt. Still no word from machine shop on rudder build. I'll check up on that tomorrow seeing as today's a holiday.

Rick: What paint are you using in the bilge? And, rolling or brushing?

Drip tray glassed, painted & installed. Frames E2 & F trimmed to fit and ready to be glued.


Poured some water on the bottom above the stringers to find the low point in the hull. Drilled two limber holes.


Frames E2 & F will get glued and taped tomorrow and I'll continue to move aft on the port side. Once that's done I'll move the ladders around and do the stbd side.

https://she-kon.blogspot.ca/2016/09/dri ... holes.html

That is all for now. Standby....

Had a massive WTF moment in the boat shed this morning. There's still so friggin' much to do I'm lost and going in circles. Had a half ass'd plan to glue & tape the bottom portions of the frames but that didn't work out. My mind got switched to tanks and which is going where and sizes etc. Boom, downloaded the drawings and did a lot of navel gazing as my two tiny neurons corresponded to come up with a plan.

Anywho, got sidetracked from that and switched over to the bulkhead to support the Python Drive. That's sort of a priority. It's got to be done before the engine gets here. I'll force myself to concentrate on that until it's done. Maybe that's the way to go.

Web log updated: https://she-kon.blogspot.ca/2016/09/mas ... oment.html

Carry on.......

Dry fitted. Measured 6 times. Cut once! Prepping small bulkhead that'll support the Python Drive thrust bearing. Seen here glassed & peel plied!



Just a lil' bit of sanding porn on today's blog update: https://she-kon.blogspot.ca/2016/09/sticktoitness.html
