@Eric! Thank you my friend!


This weekend with intermittent rain was a PITA to work in the boat, it´s secured from it but everything from my waist down got wet :x :x

I did the bow framing as indicate by Seaslug. Every part passed to "Stand on it" test :lol:

I also did 2 coats of tinted epoxy and doesn't liked the results. It´s supposed to be "Sand" color but looks white and don´t cover too much.

Now I´m dry fitting the stern parts.

Image


I cut a slot in the transom, just the glass and first layer of ply (about 3mm) and it holds the beams really good.

Image



The under sole will be filled with EPS boards. No way to get 2 part closed cell foam here and local builders use EPS or other weird things
(ex: plastic Coke bottles) to get flotation.

I made a test with caned foam to fill gaps and it glued well on EPS. I don´t want the EPS blocks free and banging around.

Carlos, You are doing a great job on the build. I wish you could get the foam but you are adapting and overcoming. Sometimes you have to do with what you have. Rock on Brother. 8)

Chase Tubes:

EPS dry fitted:

I calculated 160 liters of EPS plus a small can of foam.
Image


Sole glued and coated. The blue masking tape don´t soak in resin and I could remove it after 2 days.

EPS cut outs for backing plates.

The sole drain recess as Seaslusg did in his boat:

Hello,

A lot of work and heavy rains are keeping out of build, but I did some progress.

I glued the stern frames.

Image


Now I´m dry fitting the motorwell and backing plates for seat pedestal.
Image

Image



I think 3 layers bond together will be enough. It´s not as good as the ply I used in the hull but survived to boil test.
Image



I also got the cooler, it will be a seat and a casting platform. Now I can place a ring or something on the sole to get it tied.
Image

Image




It´s the local version of YETI and survived to more than 300 pounds over it :lol:

Hello,

I got some time after work to glue, tape and glass the sole. I´m using 100g/m2 cloth to cover the sole and the rest of the boat, it´s really easy to wet.

I´m thinking use a 20 mm PVC tube to make the cockpit drain to transom, any concerns about it?

Thanks!
