Thanx Casey!

Looking forward to sharing, and getting feedback and inserts from all you experts! 8)

It's almost weekend time, next on the list is squaring up the transom and then getting on the stitches.

Great weekend, some awesome sport on the telle, popped in to check up on scores in between boat building sessions :lol: Gongrats to all the Novak fans, would personally have liked if Roger got another one! 8)

Got the transom all squared up on the building jig and 'stitched' the sides and bottom together. Took many many hours of tweaking and adjusting, but got it done and it looks great! I'm amazed at how good it all fits together and it's testament to Jacques fab design work! Very pleased with how it turned out!

Thanx Casey,

Been slow going lately, got a bit caught up at work and traveled a bit so not a lot of hours at home to spend on the boat. Did do a few little things when possible.

I wasn't happy with the transom, was about 1/2 mm off center, so took it out fixed it and re glued it, now I'm 100% happy 8) The time spend will be worth it on my consciouns.

Image

The side panels were intentionally cut 2cm longer, I'll trim them square with the transom next.

Image

Cables ties have been cut and the 1st round of sanding is done.

Image

Bow came out nice and symmetrical! I have filled the gaps and the holes, and it's ready for the second round of sanding. Hopefully get that done over the next few evenings. Then on to the fg taping, possible this weekend. (work dependent :-( )
