Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

Today turned out to be a lay day. Mind, body and soul told me to take a break. Domani.

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

Thanks OQ, Bogieman and BB Sig! Barry, no 5200. The rubber concave cup just gets pushed up the scupper tube with my fist, and is a tight fit. The politician I'm thinking of when doing so will no doubt change over time. :wink: Today the two aft most hatches had holes cut in them, were glassed, then h...

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

Thanks OQ, BB Sig, and Biney777. Appreciated. :D Yesterday and today I've been working through a long list of small fairing jobs. Getting there, but nothing pic worthy. This afternoon I went to the hardware store to pick up some more sandpaper, chip brushes for glassing etc. And I spotted suction pl...

Re: GT27 Build (Wes K)

If there is a more authentic, no bullshit, heart warming build video on Bateau2, I'm not aware of it.

I'm a latecomer now hooked on this build.

Congratulations on what you're achieving! :D

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

Very generous responses thanks cape man and OQ. And I'm sure looking forward to finishing this build, getting to the adventures, and posting about them. :wink: Biney777, my approach to hatch construction has less then efficient, as 've been raising my requirements as a learn as I go. It took a while...

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

Thanks Fuzz! :D I spent time today repeating the locating lug dose on the hatch over the e-motor (it's the one with bright epoxy finish in the pic below taken a few weeks ago). Lots of small repeat steps...... Drill, mask with packing tape, fill with epoxy, wait for epoxy to set ..... go to the next...

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

I've been finalising the aft hatch fixing arrangements. The first 2 pics show the locating lugs that have been installed, taken from below and above. The lugs fit into locating holes let into the deck that have been over-drilled, filled with epoxy, then drilled to size. Once the hatches have been po...

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

After flirting with the notion over the past few days of building a rowing boat using traditional lapstrake planking, roving, etc., today I took a reality check by talking with a number of traditional wooden boat builders. It was like taking a cold shower. :wink: Hi Glossie Black, beautiful build! ...
