    Joints made and pieces screwed down.




    Already epoxied the undersides. Not to remove them and primer and paint, then permanently install.
    Gonna be time for zynole and epoxy on the decks soon.

    I have this overwhelming urge to wrap that box up in some thick padding so that varnish doesn't get scratched up!

    I know the feeling!
    I'll be removing it when work resumes. Also it will be getting a cushion for the top.
    Yeah I might have gone a bit overboard, but hey it's fun!

    Zynole on along with 2 coats of epoxy.



    Per a great suggestion by a fellow forumite I used one of those fabric cutting wheels to make the seams. I'm quite pleased with the result.



    Time to relax and enjoy some really good tequila (Thanks Jim!)

    Looks great! Nice that you popped the engine cover back in again to give it some scale. Gonna be a sweet ride.

    Looking good. Are you going to completely fill the weave? On the cabin top of my Chris Craft, I did not so as to leave a textured no-slip surface. It worked really well and looked great.

    No, I'm stopping with the two coats of epoxy. Next will be an LPU paint. I'm going for the same non skid surface.

    Mark,
    Does she still fit through the door? Man, you sure can knock out a boat. Looking good!

    Oops.....

    I've gotta replace the door anyway before we put this place on the market. Once it's out it should just ​make it.

    Careful that the ply joints dont print thru the deck covering. Perhaps open the joint with a " V " groove then fill with epoxy fillet material.

    They are epoxied together, 1/2 lapped over deck supports. That pic was taken during fitting and before they were glued down.
    I did use epoxy with fairing filler at the joints sanded smooth.

    Nice thread I just read from the beginning. Laughed out loud when I read "Yeah I might have gone a bit overboard, but hey it's fun!"

    I kind of think that belongs on the mast head of this whole forum. I really like the look of this boat.

    Thanks Steven. I've been watching that one with great interest.
    Maybe we will be launching at about the same time.

    Finally got the cockpit sole hatch framework glued up.



    epoxied the parts together in place. Once it cures I'll remove, sand then coat with epoxy and bilge paint.
    5 hatches should give me good access to the fuel tank, batteries, shaft log and bilge pump as well as hard to access areas beside the engine box.

    While waiting for some paint to dry I thought I'd get a head start on the templates for the aft cabin bulkhead.

    Hull looks nice. Looks black here although I know it's blue.

    Looks nice.

    Constructive comment: Your engine will pump more cooling water than any bilge pump you are likely to install. Double clamp that exhaust outlet. I have been aboard three different boats in which a failure in exhaust plumbing nearly sunk us.( one did sink, but we made it to the travel lift slip and it sank on the straps)

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    Thanks, I will. Nothing is permanently installed yet. Not until I've got the sole sole primed, painted and ready to screw down.

    I might have missed it in your photos but have you installed the raw water through-hull and seacock for the engine yet? A friend didn't do so (or didn't identify where it would go) before building his cockpit sole support grid and had a heck of a time doing it after. Also, does the water muffler have a drain petcock? It can get down to the twenties for a few breezy days in a row in Charleston in winter and freeze the contents solid.

    Yes, the seacock and strainer are forward of the engine in the engine box. Got them at Hamilton Marine in Portland.
    There is a hatch aft of the engine box that allows acces to the muffler and its drain.

    Though I haven't done a power boat before it did seem logical to work "bottom up"

    Maybe a drain plug would make sense as well ; put her up on the lift and hose out the fish scales and potato chip pieces .

    Good idea. I'd certainly want a drain plug of she lives on a lift. Wouldnt want rainwater to accumulate.
