The mast partner was installed easy, per plan, from three panels glued in position one by one.

Next thing to do was the window openings on cabin sides.

Sanding and new layer of epoxy gel

A light fiber cloth on rudder

And I had to cut and fit again the cabin sole because the foam caused deformation on it.

Wow, that's great! Your pictures show really high quality work. Good job. I liked how your real boat looks like the model you made.

Thank you all!
For a first time builder i'm satisfied with the result. Working outside and with limited time and tools for the build it's all I could get from this.
Now, I have some issues with the access on water as there are so limited places in country where I could put the boat in water. I need minimum 4 people to help me get the boat in and out of the trailer and I would like to do it alone when help not available.

Back to the build:
Painted the cabin sides and cover the windows with lexan

Image
Image
Image

I was thinking that some silicone will seal the leaxan in place but I ended up with a mess. :D I've put a rubber band on the other window and looks good. I will replece this silicone next year.
Image

Cut the seat hatches
Image
Image
Image

You can see the boat used as storage for all the tools and materials
Image

Inside paint (the cabin sole needs sanding and a cot of epoxy/paint)

At the end of 2018 I've started making the mast and boom.
Mast from 4x4cm pine 4m joined 4 for a 6ish m long post. Rounded and tapered to 4-5 cm at the top with 8cm base.
Boom was constructed from 3m long thinner stingers resulting in a 4x8 cm. Sanded and fiberglassed with 2 layers light tape.
I don't have pictures from construction but here it's the mast with plastic wrap after glassing. Almost straight and round :D
Image
Image

When making mast I did what every newbie carpenter can do: hurt myself.
On the second day of using an electric planer I've decided to disable the safety switches as it was hard to work pressing 2 buttons. As a result I end up cutting the top of my middle finger of the left hand. No bone affected but say goodbye to guitarist profession :D
Image

The mast and boom were finished and fitted for photo-session

Image

In one day I had to do something on the cabin interior and I've come up with a shelf. Not great, not terrible
Image

That was all for 2018

I don’t know. He still HAS the finger so it wasn’t “bad”. I know a few “8 finger Bob” woodworkers.

I tried to say something but God thought I was wrong and filled my mouth with saltwater. I kept my pie hole shut after that.

Thanks, but I'm glad that I still have all 10 fingers. I have some relatives that have similar issues with fingers but none with missing ones.
Until recent years all the woodworking, as a hobby or as a professional, were made exclusively on hand tools and work was relatively safe.
I'm so scared about the power tools, especially the ones with rotary blades, and I always work with care. But sometimes accidents happens. I have a lot of scars from cuts, burn marks, I always hit things with my head and step in nails. :D

First time I put the mast in place, on the boat, I was really hard to do it by myself as it's heavy and long. That time I was thinking to have a more practical solution to rise the mast and I end up with a tabernacle system.
So, I've cut the mast 30 cm above the mast partner and glued plywood battens. This first mast part it's secured with stainless screws from the inside.
The first design was not great and it snapped when I raised the sail on the first time. Now I've made it out of hardwood and steel plates.
Image

From galvanized steel I've made a semi-detachable support, don't know the name of it, for the standing rigging.
Image
Image
Image

Then I've glued and cutting the sail track
Image
Image

Image

Next thing was to construct a bowsprit, not per plan, but detachable.
Image
Image
Image

Light dacron purchased and with the sew the sail out of it.

Some time lapses of mast track construction:
