Re: SB18 in the Philippines

Went sailing on Saturday. Our yacht club asked if the three CR13s would like to run in their monthly races along side the Hobie 16 ... something to think about. I did get some work on the SB18 in on Sunday. Taped the cockpit sole to the transom as well as the transom support, everything with 2 layer...

Re: sheer clamps

laminating it from several layers with offset seams for a total thickness of 20 mm means that I should glue together several plywood stripes together? Plywood won't do for the sheer clamp. I asked that question a few months ago. Actually I was told that you can use plywood but then it would need to...

Re: shreads

Hi fragi. Are you referring to the glue battens? If so then I think the answer is yes you can use smaller pieces. I myself like using single pieces. When they need to follow the curve of the hull and the curve is rather severe, I make small cuts to make them bend more easily. Clamping might seem dif...

Re: SB18 in the Philippines

Thanks Robert. I'll work on those things this weekend though I may have to pick your brain a bit more. Good thing you mentioned the lifeline supports. I've not been thinking of them consciously. Tonight I glued in the transom brace. I also cut the biax strips I'll use to tape the seat sides to the c...

Re: SB18 in the Philippines

Thanks again Robert for the encouragement. I get a lot of inspiration from our little community here. Last night, I put masking tape along the edges of the cockpit sole and the seat sides so I got another good dose of "bonding time" with my boat. I'm only 5'5" and 160 lbs but it was still a challeng...

Re: SB18 in the Philippines

Put the mast step in though I still have brush on a little more epoxy ... http://i57.photobucket.com/albums/g227/lcasambre/SB18/IMG_1269.jpg Got a quarter of the cabin sole in as well as the cockpit sole http://i57.photobucket.com/albums/g227/lcasambre/SB18/IMG_1258.jpg http://i57.photobucket.com/al...

Re: SB18 in the Philippines

Hahaha ... the thing is I don't think you'd fit LarryB. Hey how's that boat of your's coming? Tonight I made the mast step and cut the glass for it. I also started cleaning up the sheer glue joints but I need to use a router on it before I tape but that's a daytime-only operation. Finally, I fit the...

Re: SB18 in the Philippines

Well the "adventure" did happen but man I'm still sore from it. http://i57.photobucket.com/albums/g227/lcasambre/SB18/CopyofIMG_1072.jpg Next time I'm using the good stuff for the seats or even just using the next higher thickness rather than having to crawl around like that again. Actually I'm not ...

Re: SB18 in the Philippines

Can't you get in under the seats, once in place, and shape nice clean fillets? A kid could do it no problem but I'm too many decades beyond that ... but yes that's why I said I made things harder :cry: ... should be a small adventure. I was going to say, *Nice job at building a small keelboat insid...
