Thank you as always. Can't wait to see your girl back up on step!
The Stringer show continues...
Pulled a pair of strings athwartship, one forward, one aft, and shimmed the hull a little on the starboard to get a little bit of wind out of her.
Cut limber holes forward of each frame slot and coated the bottom edges and limber holes with a few coats of neat epoxy.
Spent a fair amount of time putting them in, and taking them out, using tempory frames and blocking checking for hard spots and level. After removing 3/8" or so from the bottom edge at the back of each, I set them on shims fore and aft, and spot welded each into place with thickened epoxy. With only a few short beads of cured glue, it was remarkable how much rigidity they added to the hull.
Ran fillets on the outboard port stringer and taped each side for the first time, need to do the 2nd run this afternoon. I bet I will have 12 hours in filleting and taping on all 4 stringers, as the first will have taken close to 3. One of many examples of how the time that goes into these builds grows and grows, but as the time grows, so do the milestones!
