682Hrs – And Back Again
Having worked my way from stern to stem doing the backbone fillets I’ve now started working back again! This time sanding down to remove all the messy drips of epoxy from when the hulls were upside down, and to get all the bulkhead fillets below floor levels completed ( The fillets above are left until the floors are fitted as they interfere otherwise ) I also fitted the four ply braces in compartments No 1 & 2.
I was feeling ‘arty’ again today and liked the patterns of sunlight reflecting on one of the bulkheads. The sun was shining through the brickwork vents I showed yesterday.
Photo left shows the No1 and No 2 compartments in the starboard hulls with fillets and braces in place. I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before but I intend to paint the inside of the boat white with light coloured timber features. Not only will it give the boat a nice clean airy feel which I think will be needed in the relatively small cabins, but I’m hoping it will also hide a lot of my messy epoxy work! I can’t imagine working to a standard that would allow the interior to be varnished!
