1861 Hrs – Job Lot
If there’s one thing I’ve learned during the build so far it’s the value of doing larger tasks as a job lot i.e. in one go. It saves huge amounts of time because you can set up a process, all the tools and fixing you need can be got close to hand, and, as you methodically work your way through the task you pick up speed as you get used to the process.
Today has been a good example of this. When I arrived at the barn I was tempted to start glassing the hullside stringer fillets that I’d stuck the other day but then I looked at the pile of cut fillets sitting on the floor and though no, I’ll get them all fitted today.
It took me 5 hours in total but they’re all on. That’s some 46m (152ft) of wood 50mm (2 inches) wide and about 6 mixes of filled epoxy.
Now I can crack on with glassing all the joints without interruption.
