Very nice work with the trailer bunks. Your entire build is looking good, keep it up.

Hi,
Today I got the PS bottom and side ready for fibreglass. First I placed the fibreglass nicely against the hull
and then I prepared 5 pieces of peel ply and laid them out as a test and then I rolled them around cardboard rolls and put them at the ready numbered from 1 to 5 in the corner of my shed.

Here the peel ply over the fibreglass:

And here just the fibreglass:

And now according to the weather report I have to wait with the wetting out for a whole week. Only then it will be warm enough. But it does not matter I have 3 small chores to do.
First I will extend the flanged deck ring on the bow side with a 6 cm high half pipe. I built the deck ring up of 2 rings of plywood. I will glue this half pipe also out of plywood pieces and once I have glued the deck ring to the mast partner it will serve as a hold against the mast end when I step the mast. I hope to be able to do it with the sail assembly already bent to the mast because the lot will only weigh roughly 12 kg.
The other 2 things I must do is to drill the 4 holes of the bottom rudder pintle ( or is it the gudgeon ? at any rate the metal piece attached with 4 screws to the transom ) and the 2 holes of the bow eye one number bigger and fill them with epoxy before I can redrill them again with no 6 for final mounting.
It sounds like not very much but my experience is, that I must not plan how long this will take, it will take longer like all my boat builder tasks do. Nevertheless I am confident that splashing time this summer is very likely.

It has started to warm up here so it must be getting nice there for you by now. Funny how a little warm weather makes life seem brighter :D I hope it warms up and lets you make good progress on your boat.

Yes it is warm enough during the day but at night we still have 2 - 8 degrees celsius which is a bit to cool for the epoxy.
I think I will start the gas heater over night and will have always a temperature over 10 degrees celsius which my noname epoxy ordered from Germany needs.

I think most epoxy needs to be that or more to cure. Plus it is much nicer if you are working in that temperature :D

Good to see you back at it Karl, even if it is just getting ready to go. Summer splash!

Hi,

While I am waiting for the right temperature for my epoxy application to side and bottom I came across this 9 pages Hall of Fame :

OK, I like sailing and adventuring and perhaps have sailed more than some. But I have limits, and this couple has traveled way beyond them. We overcame the serious breakdowns but they they add up over time and have an impact on your mind. The variety and severity of them finally convinces you that you are walking a thin line when you go to sea that is not merely abstract or theoretical. Things at almost any moment, even a calm one, can go belly up. You feel it viscerally. Their catalog of disasters would almost certainly have defeated me. In addition, we had no appetite for cold weather but these folks are gluttons for punishment. A tip of the hat. They do get some serious bragging rights although I'm sure that wasn't their goal.

Yep, everything seems to take a little longer with boat building, but the journey sure is enjoyable, so long as you're not worried about time. Splashing this summer would be nice, but enjoying the build each step of the way will be nice too. With a bit of luck, you'll achieve both. :D
