We turned the hull with the Travellift which was quite uncomplicated.
After being away for 4 weeks I came back and knew that I had 1,5 Months to bring the hull to a stage, where it can rest over the winter in a cradle outside without taking damage from rain and snow. This seemed possible even more because I had 2 weeks of vacation from my day job. So I hopped to build the majority of the hull in this 2 weeks.
Now it’s obvious, the pile of plywood will become a boat.
I did the last preparations for the actual build of the boat. I checked all the stations again for the right markings (cwl, centre line) and accurate dimensions to avoid unpleasant surprises in the summer.
I ordered most of the plywood I will need for hull and deck. I had some worries about the increase in prices but
I last posted ~ 4 months ago, but I haven’t been idle during that time. I finished station 4 and 6 and the temporary stations 5 and 7.
What am I doing here?
I did the last scarf joints and all permanent stations are glued together and most of them are glassed and framed except of station 6.
I ordered 10 10mm (7Layers) sheets for the bulkheads and 3 12mm for the backbone.
I bought a 120Ah from Aliexpress last year.
this is a blog mostly about building a sailboat out of plywood.
