1547Hrs – Good Day
The weather pendulum swung back again this weekend and it’s been warm and sunny. I put in a really good eight hour session today and managed to get the all the starboard hull tumblehomes re-cut and dry fitted. I’m really pleased to have gotten this particularly trying task out of the way. For sure I still have to get them glued in position, but I know that they are near enough not to have to worry too much. I can just plod on with fixing them in position without too much thought needed. Come to think of it my next problem may well be one of boredom as I have a huge amount of filleting to do inside the hulls. That said I’ll probably break it up with construction of the moulds I need to make the radiused sandwich decks. I also need to decide on and source the core material. Balsa, foam ? I really haven’t given it any thought. I’d welcome any ideas or thoughts.
For those of you who haven’t spotted it I have now added a Twitter feed to the blog so that those of you who are up to speed with the latest micro blogging craze can ‘follow me’ if they wish. I have set up a Twitter Feed to ‘Tweet’ updates to the Gleda Project Blog. I’m using Twitter as part of my ‘Project X’ work under the alias Affiliate Afloat. If you’re interested go take a look at AffiliateAfloat.com.
