1552Hrs- New Stage
As I hinted at last time, I’d been thinking about breaking up the gluing of the tumblehomes and filleting work with making the decks and cabin tops. I’ve decided to go a bit further and make these sections before I start gluing the tumblehomes. My reasoning is that although I’m fairly happy with the tumblehomes I’m not absolutely sure they are right. It makes sense therefore to construct the curved deck sections before I do anything else because I can then make sure that everything fits together properly before things are permanently glued. So today’s work session has been spent making the carcass for the curved mould that will be used to make the decks. It took quite a while to get everything square and to get the radius right but I know have a good base to fit the ply onto. All in all I’m pleased to have moved onto this next stage. I’ll be sourcing the sandwich material this week. Thanks to Jacques for the info about the cheaper polystyrene foam, I’ll probably be taking that option.
