I'm sure if the 'Shop Supervisor' had it his way I'd do nothing but pet him and get no boat building done!

Today I got the upper portion of Frame B tabbed to the hull and Frame D set in place. I'll line it up and glue it to the hull tomorrow.



I'll just keep plugging away till I fall down and can't get back up. Few more pics on the blog: https://she-kon.blogspot.ca/2017/06/bet ... tures.html

Like you, they also brought more than smarts to the job. It takes tenacity, endurance, strength, experience and ingenuity to succeed. Looks like you've got it all in spades!

Thanks for the kind words Al. Means a lot. Honestly.

Thanks a lot, Al. I was happily ignorant of this only moments ago. I might as well just crawl into my lazarette and slam the hatch.

Can't deny that Rick has them in spades, though.

I'll have to make sure the wife adds those words to her vocabulary. She just says I'm stubborn!

Putzed around some more today. Back really seized up last night. Took it easy. After a fresh look at Frame D this morning I realized I had it all frigged up. The way I did it the thing floats in air so has to be braced eight ways from Sunday to get it in the proper place. After taking a wee tumble and wrecking it for the second time I cut some 2 x 4's for braces!



This part is on the starboard side just ahead of the v-berth. It'll likely become the Admiral's sewing table. And another overall view.



Measured twenty times. It's plumb & square as it should be. It'll get tabbed into place tomorrow along with Frame A. Gonna buy some cheap sheeting ply and put in some temporary decks.

Thanks for looking in fellas.

You're no slouch either, HH. We've seen your mods on your Manatee. I wish I had half of your talent.

That should make it much easier on your back and knees.

Frame A and D now tabbed to the hull. I ran out of glue (epoxy & wood flour w/little cabosil) so ordered more. I hope to drop Frame F in tomorrow. That's the front part of the main cabin. Will have to build stairs over the engine space and down into the forward cabin. Engine should be finished soon.

The rains seem to have let up for awhile.

Working hard trying to stop 'over thinking' every detail of this project. Just picked a task and go to it this morning.

[Sorry pics are on photobucket so I can't use them here]

Filled the rudder voids with expanding foam. First time I've ever used this stuff. Neat.

More pics & a video on today's blog update: https://she-kon.blogspot.ca/2017/08/ove ... hings.html

Thanks for looking in.

Cheers!

That 2 part foam can be a bit finicky at times. I've had it go off as soon as I started mixing and I've had it take 10-15 minutes. It's not a big deal if it takes a while when it's going into and enclosed space. It's a big pita when doing a semi open pour like you were doing.

It hasn't rained in 36 hrs! Wohoo! We may have turned the corner. Oh wait. Fack! More nasty weather in the forecast!

Anyhow I managed to get some puttering in. Two aft bulkheads glassed. Boat leveled (for now). And some poo on the rudder. Never, ever pour that two part foam over plastic sheeting! Never!

Good to hear you're getting some work done. I was thinking about you the other day. My youngest son wants to do a motorcycle ride up to Newfie. I don't think he realizes how far that is.
