Made good progress this weekend.
I have all the components for the internal bracing prepared. The only piece still to be built is the transom pad that the outboard motor screws to.
A few modifications have been made (inadvertently) along the way. The two side pieces didn’t match exactly so I had to plane the taller of the two which in turn means that I’ll need to shave several millimetres off the cross piece. I’m sure that this will not have a detrimental effect on the boat performance. Only issue is if I can bend the plywood on the top that extra distance.
For the rest of this week I’ll be fitting the struts, and the transom pad, and then I’ll start fibre-glassing the interior spaces and all exterior edges.
I have three weeks left, and need to time application of resin along with drying time, sanding and then painting.
I have no idea how you’re supposed to be able to make this in a weekend.
Here’s some pics on progress.
