You better stop dressing her up only to undress her again without taking her out! She's going to get tired of the teasing..
:wink:
:lol: :lol: :lol:

Spent time this afternoon cutting to shape, then starting to fillet in, the ring flange to the interior of the engine enclosure. It will house the rubber seal between the sole upturn and the enclosure.

Both pics below are with the top of the enclosure removed.

The first shows the top face of the sole upturn sitting within the enclosure, before installation of the ring flange. The second with the ring flange installed.

The weight of the engine enclosure will compress the rubber seal located between the two.

Hope this explanation makes sense.

If you want to go back to work I'd let you cut and stitch on me. Nice call! Great foresight on a small but maybe ugly situation.

GB SkinnyDip is going to develop bipolar disease if you don't quit teasing her with all the rebuilds and changes :lol: I can't wait for you to finish her and get her on the water. And a belated happy birthday to your better half. :D

Take care and one step at a time. At our age there really no rush on anything. :D

Glossie don’t listen to these nay sayers. We know half the fun with a girl is undressing her :wink: :P

That would not be wise, as I've no cut and stitch credentials or experiennce. Could be fun though :lol:

Thanks for the laughs Tom and Fuzz. :D

Only a short session of boat building today, filleting-in the underside of engine enclosure's ring flange.

Today covings were laid down between the hulls sides, the perimeter of the sole, and the athwartships hanging knees and frames. All are now close to being fair enough for painting.

Fairing of the rest of the sole is yet to be done (the areas still covered by peel ply).

I'm starting to see some light at the end of the internal fairing tunnel. :D

The cockpit side coamings (technically carlins, as they will not protrude above the deck) ) were also glued in today.

I am sure being able to see the end of the fairing is a good feeling. Seeing as you will want the decks to be non-skid I bet you will not need to do much on them. and then you can move on to something that is not an endless circle :wink:

Really looking good! But, but, but, still have to see what it looks like under the peel ply!
