Hi Guys,
Sorry for the long delay in responding but it has been quite a year.
Towards the end of our last harvest my mother in law started going downhill with cancer and she moved in with us. We nursed her at home till the end which was only just over a month ago. Needless to say boatbuilding was not on my radar during this period.
Our next harvest is due to begin next week so it looks like very little (if any) boatbuilding for the next 4 to 5 months.
I drop onto the forum periodically and I am astounded by the progress and quality of builds on show.
Rest assured, as soon as there is any progress I will post.
In the mean time, happy boatbuilding everyone!
Cheers,
Reefie

Thanks for the update. The boat can wait it sounds like you have your hands full with lots of other life events. Sorry to hear about your MIL. That is tough on all involved.

Hi Guys,
Thanks for all the kind words of support and encouragement.
Well I have finally managed to find some time to do a bit of work on the swim platform over the last few days.
I have glued in the platform deck, and glassed the first layer on the bezel.
I have also cut out some knees supports ready for gluing. I was deciding between 2, 3 or 4 knee supports.
With 2 knee supports evenly spaced, they would interfere with the ability to add trim tabs, so I pretty much ruled this out.
With 4 knee supports, it looked way overkill.
So I am contemplating either going with 3 knees supports evenly spaced, or only 2 by dropping out the centre one - either way I will still be able to install the drainage bung, and trim tabs if I so choose. What do you guys think?
The trim tab actuators would need to be positioned approximately where the black texta lines are.

Happy building!
