Re: Crabby Patti2 C17

Has been taking me a long tome to glass in the frames and start the sleepers for the soles. I decided to work my way now to stern, leaving the motor well frame until the end. Much easier for me to get in and out of the boat through the the transom rather than climbing up and over the side. Back to h...

Re: C17 in the bayou

Salty; did you glue the motorwell side pieces to the stringers before taping them in? The sides seem to fit snugly against the stringer.........

Re: Crabby Patti2 C17

Salty’s right; lots of fussy fitting now. Burning Man was on my bucket list. @69 you need to start emptying the bucket. Went with my niece who is a hard core burner. Pretty hard to describe. Really harsh; 100+ most afternoons. Those in RVs do pretty well but I camped. Great people; very giving. A lo...

Re: Crabby Patti2 C17

Cut station c upper cabinet frame wrong, glad I caught it prior to adding it in. Now seems to fit. Cut hatch for frame “A” now; seemed easier than try to cut it in place. Laminated “roof beam sisters” now also. Progress but a lot to do. Had my Urolift completed last week. Google it; most of you prob...

Re: Crabby Patti2 C17

all; thanks for the support. Hard to see what happened but I am moving forward. I will fill the gap with plywood then do the normal FG. Next will be some cardboard mockup. I think I will cut out only a door opening into cabin. Not sure of the value of the "window" cutouts either side of the entry wa...

Re: Crabby Patti2 C17

Cut the final frames. All fit except “C”. I am thinking I may have cut it wrong. Anyway; suggestions of how to fill gap a bit? Probably 1 1/4” right now. If I shape to
Much I will bring the top down too much.

Re: Crabby Patti2 C17

Salty; you were right on the joy of glassing the inside. This was a pain in the transom but it is done. After jumping in and out of the boat to mix resin a few dozen times, my wife asked “why didn’t you just keep the bottles in the boat and mix it when you needed it?” Hindsight is always sharp. Anyw...

Re: Crabby Patti2 C17

Finally back at it after checking off a bucket list item. Burning Man; impossible to describe.

Re: C17 in the bayou

Salty; we are both at the same point in the build. Yours looks great, I will be watching you now as I won’t work on mine much until fall.
