I am a little jealous of this build. It will be a kick ass boat when done and about 15% of the work of the Skoota dm.

I am feeling a bit overwhelmed these days.
My boat build is here -------->

Hey Fallguy, both Eric's and your builds are A1 first class sensational. Don't forget you're building two boats. :wink:
Currently building Jacques Mertens ST21 "Skinnydip". Boating adventures: Splash testing and using 'Skinnydip, as a basis of further building refinement; Adams 44’ sailing sloop "Great Sandy" (cruising and maintaining); Iain Oughtred Feather Pram "Mini Dip" (building); Jacques Mertens R13 "Wood Duck" (built and due for maintenance).

Thanks Fallguy1000, You hang in there. You'll get that yacht finished, step by step. 8)

Thanks to you Glossie and OrangeQuest. :D

I have the tops filled with the exception of the stringer sections where the gas tanks will go.
I will temporarily mount cleats with release film to build those areas next and fill the tops.
Then I will sand and confirm level before I finish the rest of the cleat work.
All of the dowels were filled this morning as well.
We are going to be very cold the next few days so boat progress will be on pause.

I'm pulling small fillets at the cleat corners. It's probably not needed but I like the idea.

The small fillets are a nice touch.

Yesterday I made dams and put them in place.
I had a late start but good grief it took a while to do.
This is all I accomplished as I had to run a bunch of errands.

Image

Today I wait until 8:00 to get started. Temp in the building was only 56 degrees.
The epoxy was like honey and tough to mix and use. None-the-less I have the dams filled.
Nothing else today, this work must cure first.

Image

Image

Mistakes corrected, Finally nice and level! :)

I'm really looking forward to this part of the build being done. :D
