    Too close... But no hull was injured!

    You need a holiday and less projects.
    It hasn't been that bad. What is frustrating is to know when to quit - I'm just not experienced enough. And I'm longing to do some woodworking.

    Yes I'm looking forward to start working with the interior - hope it will be faster than the first six years...


    This is the setup. It felt great to dig out some old climbing ropes for the rigging. I have a very personal relation to each one of them and just touching them makes me remember some of the adventures we shared in the past. Ice climbing and big walls are tough on the ropes and I probably have more than 8 ropes that I no longer use for climbing. But for some reason I cannot throw them away...

    Then the hull was stuck and my father in law had to do some woodworking with his tool of choice...

    Congratulations! The boat looks bigger now that it's flipped. Will you glass the interior?

    Thank you for your kind words :-)

    Yes, everything will be glassed also on the inside. I will not spend excessive time on getting the surface fair. Just a quick dash with ROS grit 40, structural filler and then directly to the weave. And I agree, the boat suddenly grew considerably. But I guess she will be small again once she is in the water. I will take a short break from the shop but I plan to get started with the inside in a couple of weeks.

    Unfortunately, the weather has not been cooperating and the cold has hampered work with epoxy. The inside has been sanded and I have sheathed three our of six sections. Right now I'm in the mountains learning the kids to negotiate 8 ft of snow. They are doing amazingly well!

    I will post some pictures of the hull when we're back to the civilisation!

    Nice work on the planking and turnover rig. I'm in the same position with my planks right now and got some good ideas from your thread.

    Sorry for not keeping the thread updated. Not of lack of progress, rather because the work I've done is not very interesting.

    Nevertheless, the inside has been sheathed and now I'm fairing and sanding the surfaces. I'm very happy with the hull and do not regret that I used squared (and not bead and cove) strips. It is also evident that many of the rumours surrounding strip planking that is floating around the internet is not correct. One example is the claim that less than 30% of the strips's surface area participate in the contact area with neighbouring strips. This is simply not correct, the majority of the strips seems to have near 100% glued contact area and those few that had starved joints have been sawed and filled with structural filler/epoxy.

    The appearance is kind of messy, but there is a fair, strong and well sheathed hull under all that dust....

    I prefer watching other people sanding epoxy than doing it myself, but yeah, not so photogenic. How heavy was the layup inside,one thick or several light?

    One thick. I bought a full roll of 320 g/m2 that sees to last forever...

    Once the sheer line was established I put a small radius to the top edge. The layup was two layers of 160 g/m2 that was laminated over the edge plank
    to seal the topside of the hull.

    After four hours a thin filler coat of neat epoxy was added and after additionally four hours a thin layer of epoxy/microbaloons.

    Feels really good that the work with the sheer is coming to an end!

    Good to see it progressing Fredrik, its a plenty stiff hull laminate. Even your workshop floor is getting proper dirty, most excellent!

    Yes, the floor will need a good cleaning and a new coat of paint! But not until the boat is in the water!!

    Gartside has a good eye... The hull is Norwegian spruce (Picea abies) and the sheer strake is fir (Pinus sylvestris) slowly grown out in the archipelago of northern Sweden.

    That just looks stunning! I've had this particular design in mind for several years now but had a lot of doubts when it came to the double ended design.

    This build moved it back to the top of my list again. What a beaut and great to see the hull turning out that handsome. One of the nicest double enders I've seen, can't wait to see the rest of it coming together.

    Impressive.

    The entire hull has been sanded once more (180 grit) and primed with 5 more layers of high build primer. Some areas will need more work with fairing compound but that not be done until it's time for the top layer of paint.

    It's difficult to photograph a black hull but you'll get the idea...

    Depending on how you plan to build the hull, you may wish to approach Mr. Gartside. The plans are specified for cold moulding and not really suited for strip. However, with only minor adjustments to the plans, the building time would have been significantly reduced.

    Anyway, regardless,I believe it's critically important to choose a design that you really like. Building such a large boat is a significant undertaking and I think that one way to keep the motivation is to choose the "perfect boat" to begin with.

    Keep us updated!

    That's a wonderful sturdy looking hull, and beautifully smooth.
