Progress on the boat 3/28/11 through 4/10/11
Fourteen weeks in.
Patching and cleaning up sheer strake continues – we use it as a filler job – in between doing other things.
|Luke shaping pins to fill old fastener holes in transom framing|
|Frames are pinned, ready for planking|
|New end of bottom transom plank finally glued up|
|Next plank up on transom gets new end glue up as well|
|This shows both planks with new ends installed|
|Chris and Luke cutting back plywood deck edge to install hardwood edge|
|Deck edge cut - detail|
|Luke shaping and fairing the repairs to side deck faces|
|Chris and his brother Jimmy glue first piece of hardwood edge on deck at transom|
At this point anyone and everyone who knows Chris should be concerned about being forced to work on this job.
My advice - leave town before he calls.
No one is safe or exempt.
Except Chris’s sidekick, Toby. He refuses to help in any way...
