The project continues. This one will be the 2nd yawl version built. It is going well now that the refinements in dealing with new partners and steps are made. Here is mizzen:
Foils are made, more sanding and build coats to do. Tried the router guide technique. Pretty tricky, but a fun challenge.
The fwd. mat step is a piece of 4 1/2" aluminum tubing from Metal Express. You don't need more than 12" for this new step. The tube steps into a routed channel in the mast step and is captured by a plywood ring at the partner.
The tanks tops are glued in....dead straight hull, no twist.
Come to see us at the Boatbuilder's Show in Maine, March 18-20th, building #2 near stairway up towards food.
