1686Hrs- Over To Portside
I’m keen to get these tumblehomes and cabin tops done as soon as possible and today I was able to move over the the port hull and make a start joining the two sections of cabin top. Things went far easier than with the starboard hull because the tumblehomes weren’t in the way meaning I could concentrate on getting the contact points at all the bulkheads spot on. Again I took my time, checking all the levels, before gluing and clamping the four long connecting stringers and the two small transverse blocks that sit on top of the mast beam trough. To finish off I key sanded the edges of the starboard cabin top then grabbed a couple of volunteers to help me lift it back onto the hull ready for final positioning (Thanks to Richard and Malcolm).
