    Efforts continue. I've primed and faired. This is a split coat of Interlux primer and Seattle Gray brightsides.



    Also, in my continued effort to besmirch the good Hvalsoe name I've went ahead and painted the transom.



    (Somewhere a cedar on oak lapstrake boat just split a garboard, I'm sure.)

    Painted the transom? You actually painted the transom???? Eric forgave the two of us for building his designs in glued lap, but this has just gone too far!!!

    Latest round up ...

    Boat is painted. I used Interlux's Seattle Grey. Sometimes it looks white, sometimes it looks grey. A neighbor told me that it was a "cheery grey." I think it contrasts nicely with the ash rails.





    I chucked this spruce birdsmouth boomkin into my lathe after taking down the major edges with a No. 5 plane. Using a series of rasps, then grits, I was able to turn the spar into submission.





    And finally, I'm starting to work my way through the rudder parts. Here are the cheeks wetted out with 4 oz glass.

    Glassing the rudder cheeks, really? Hmm, had not thought of that. Was that necessary?

    For my boat, yes. For your boat, unknown. Depends on the rudder design and material scantlings.

    The cheeks pictured are 6mm okoume. Kinda bendy at that thickness. Glass inside and out will stiffen them up without too much added weight.

    Really nice work all around, Tim. Looking forward to seeing the details as you sort out arrangements of the boomkin sheeting, and tiller/mast step relationships. Thanks for sharing.

    And on we go. I've been working on various rudder and centerboard parts.



    I installed a VHMW polyethylene skid shoe. I bought the VHMW from Tap Plastics. It's different than UHMW in which instead of "Ultra" it's now just "Very" High Molecular Weight polyethylene. I'm sure there's a difference, but it looks/feels about the same.



    Western Red Cedar floorboards are fitted and oiled. They're removable for cleaning and maintenance purposes.



    I installed Wichard lifting eyes fore and aft, but don't seem to have a photo to share of those. Just try to picture eyes sticking up out of the keel. I have a small hatch that I added in the floorboards near the forward bulkhead. I still need to build a hatch for the aft eye.

    Nice detailing. I especially like the hard edge you carved in at the top of the stem.

    Looking good! So, Tim, how did you make those nice round depressions in the floorboards for the toggles?

    I set the forstner bit to the same depth as the toggle thickness. I'd admit it took a couple tries to figure it all out.

    Any significance to Eric's not posting since you painted the transom?

    The painted transom looks spectacular, btw. But then it is a Hvalsoe.

    It's a paradigm shift for the brand.
    The painted transom rocks. Post #810 stern on is worthy of framing.
    A varnished transom is still a sweet thing to behold.

    I ordered them on Amazon. Should be here by Friday. Using red vinyl lettering. It's sort of a cursive/lettered script.

    What was that name you decided on again? Wett Dream? Danish Woody? Hot Ruddered Bum? Nauti-lust?

    Doesn't really matter. Any of these would be awesome in that giant cursive red-lettered script.

    Don't you go drifting this thread, Gerard! The current subject is what name to tattoo on this boat's hiney in red vinyl. I suggest Dixie Normous, right next to the outboard bracket.

    Anybody out there use Trailex trailers? They're aluminum, and I wonder if that would be a poor choice considering 99% of my sailing time is in salt water. I always rinse my trailers. But you'll never get all the salt.

    A friend of mine had an aluminum trailer for his J-22. If I remember correctly, something happened between the aluminum tongue and the steel receiver hitch. The whole thing fell apart while he was doing 65 mph on the highway. Luckily, the trailer skidded to a stop without flipping. Steel bolts and aluminum don't mix well, I believe. He was a salt water sailor, but the hitch end, of course, would never be in the water.

    Word is the Trailex trailers are a bit too lightweight for what I'm doing here. I think we're headed for an EZLoader.
