Post by new to sail » Mon Oct 16, 2006 10:59 am

I assembled the bottom panels, wired and got them glued. Next I will add fillet and tape.

Looking great so far. This is the most exciting part, watching your new boat take shape before your eyes.

Your photo link will only work as long as your image is the newest one uploaded in the whole bateau2.com gallery. That's what the "....?album=lastup&cat=0&pos=0" means. The correct link to this picture is

http://gallery.bateau2.com/albums/userp ... embled.jpg

The way I get this info is to open the photo in my gallery, right-click on it, select 'properties'. Then you can cut and paste this link between the URL html tags. If you want to display the image directly here in your post, use the Img tag instead of the URL tags. Like this -

{img}http://gallery.bateau2.comalbums/userpi ... d.jpg{/img}

which produces this when the correct square brackets are used ...

Cheers and build on, more pictures!

Looks good

I don't see a frame forward around bulkhead B. This is a tricky part of the hull to get the right shape. I notice that you have a frame at the transom. This is a good idea. You may think that every panel is constrained by the frames but I found that a little 1/2 inch tweek forward would shift the panel 1/2 inch aft.

Thanks for the responses.

Louis:
My next photo I'll try to use your technique. When I used my Mac I could not get the picture properties. I see what you mean when I tried this with my windows laptop.

Justin:
I acually do have a frame at the B location as well as a brace at 0. The picture was taken just missing that view.
I do need to brace a couple of the frames better because when I got inside to clean up and remove ties I got some movement that may cause problems later.

On a Mac...

ctrl click on the image and you get a popup menu. Select the choice...

Open Image in New Window

Then, in that window that opens, copy the URL of that window. This would be the address that you paste in between the two IMG commands. As usual, one of several ways to do the same thing on a Mac. :)

You're quite welcome. And of course, I hope it is much more difficult to break your day compared to how easy it seems to *make* it. :lol: :wink:

Looking forward to the pictures. :)

Slowly getting there, after a couple of rainy days, a dry spell let me proceed with another area to fibergalss.

Image

I was hoping for a stretch of dry weather to finish the inside so I can begin placing the bulkheads.

I am so addicted to this project.

During the week at work it seems all I can think about is the weekend and the next addition to the boat.

Here is my latest results. I can position, tack in place, then fillet and tape each side–one bulkhead each weekend.

Slowly making progress, a few random shots of what I have been up to.

Also I had a nice visit with Justin and his lovey wife, Edith as they were headed north to a boat show. Justin had some nice things to say about my boat, but the thing that inspired me was the chance to see Just Right inside and out. A great boat that I hope I can some day duplicate.



Image

Closing in the forward areas with lockers, have not painted inside yet or glued tops on yet

Image

Seems like it takes forever to put the framing in place.

Image

More framing under sole. I hope to paint and glue it on soon.

Image

Everying seems to find its place

Image

Interior look. I probably should find an area to work on and finish up but I get so anxious to see the next step I can't wait to see how it going to look.
