I finished the cabin. The plywood was not yet glued and laminated. I leave the tarpaulin on the boat more or less all the time for several reasons and work inside and around the cockpit.
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.
this is a blog mostly about building a sailboat out of plywood.
