1621Hrs- Fairing & Sanding Forward Cabin Decks
I squeezed in a short session today, another holiday weekend just past, a 10 day break to Portugal starting next week and my own business to look after mean that time is short right now. No point stressing though I know that things will pick up pace by the end of June and I’m still on target. So today I concentrated on more sanding and fairing of the forward cabin decks, all pretty simple stuff really but quite satisfying. I also shaped in the Douglas Fir blocks that I’d glued in at the forward ends of the tumble homes. The plans suggest cutting small pieces of ply to cover the gap (the tumble homes are cut from standard 2.44m (8ft) sheets of ply but the decks are a bit over 2.5m long so they stop short of the forward beam troughs). I decided to glue solid pieces of timber in there instead and then shape them afterwards. Better job all round methinks.
