Looking good. Gives me great pleasure to see this one continuing forward.

I am wondering what the brown line about 10" down from the sheer is... Is that a scarf joint?

I sort of expect to see a tape there.. maybe I am wrong...


My boat build is here -------->

Looks really good Eric. Like everyone else said it is good to see you working on it again.

Fallguy you are looking at where the upper and lower panels meet.

Right, but does that get taped?

Looks to me like it was rounded over with wood flour glue and glassed over. That is why the brown looking line. I am sure Eric will give us the final word tomorrow :wink:

First, Thank Both of you. It means a lot for my work to be praised by such fine builders!
Now to answer the question, The lamination schedule didn't call for glass to go that high.
I liked the idea of glassing it for strength and water proofing. The easiest way was to use 50" biax.
I filled with wood flour at a shallow angle to allow the fabric to lay flat.
I need the water proofing because I will wash under the gunnels to prevent mildew and remove wasps.
Probably petty but I hate both, especially to D$^% wasps. Living in the south the are an issue.
After towing 135 mile to fish Santee. I've been swarmed by a red cloud of SOB's. It was not fun.

Eric, easy way to KILL wasps is a spray bottle of "Dawn" dish washing soap and water. I worked at some horse stables and wasps were a common problem. I got a cheap pump up sprayer and kept it on hand. When you hit them they drop, crawl around a bit and then stop. Afterwards just rinse with clean water. With enough pressure and the right spray pattern you can take out pretty big nests without any of them escaping. :)

Eric, as always, your not-so-inner machinist is making this a showcase build. Amazing work.

No suggestions on glass or wasp killing. But with the amount of sanding you’ve done on this boat NO ONE will think you’re being petty for wanting a safe and mold free boat. Especially with the young lady on board. Nothing is ever really perfect enough for our princesses, is it?

When do you start sanding again?

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.

Thank Jaysen. :D
Not really, I want to give the the best I can.
I'll sand a little when these are done to correct adjust level. :lol:
Just post the mornings progress. I got busy with a car yesterday and I have to meet an installer for my dishwasher.
More on those when I get home.

So yesterday I was gluing the third strake for the morning and my Brother interrupted me to tell me the paper work finally came in for the Altima.
I have been waiting two months for a title so I could give the car to my younger daughter. Nissan claims they sent the title twice. The first time was to our street address, it never came. A month ago we called and asked them to send it again to our post office box. It never came :x ,so last Thursday we called again and were told we would have to pay a fee for a clear lien document and South Carolina would issue the title. :x My Brother told them they had not put forth due diligence in seeing the title was delivered and we would not pay for the paperwork. The pinhead wanted to argue and was told to get her manager. After explaining the events to him he agreed to Fed Ex the paperwork at no charge. So we headed out to pay property, get a title , sell the car to me and get a new title in my name and pay sales tax for that ($500) and finally a tag.
Mark paid the expedite fee to get a title in hand and told the lady at DMV what all we needed to do.
Hold your Horn! She then transferred the company title to a new one in my name for free! By doing that I didn't have to pay the sells tax!!!
All it cost me was the plate fee!!! Folks that NEVER happens at the DMV!! :D :D :D

January I found the toilet in the main bathroom had leak and rotted the floor under the tiles. I secured the water and took out the toilet.
This was the second time in the last four years it had happened. I had to replace the toilet the first time which lead to the issue the second time.
I replaced the wax seal and thought I was golden. No, I found out the new toilets are made to fit flush to the floor. I called every where seeking a solution. Every place I called told me to use two wax rings, so I did. I installed it and thought I was golden. Ah Heck no! All the did was shift the leak under the freaking floor again!!! :x :x :x
Cut to February, My girls tell me there is water coming out from under the kitchen sink. I rush home to fine it must have been dripping over time and now I have a rotten floor under the sink. That lead mo to search for a contractor to do the repairs properly. At this point I didn't trust my knowledge to get the job done. continued in next post....
