    The hull of the yacht has been glued with fiberglass, 2 layers of fabric with a density of 300 g.м2, after laying the first layer was a week and the resin completely polymerized, so before laying the second layer the surface was sanded with a grinding machine.
    All the work on the pasting of the shell took 4 working days.
    Consumption of materials, epoxy resin 45 kg, fiberglass 40 kg.

    We use a two-component epoxy putty, the components are mixed immediately before application to the hull of the yacht.

    In fact, it only looks hard, grinding the entire body of the yacht takes several hours )))

    Balast is 0.65 t, various layout options are available, for example, permanent ballast keel, lift keel or bilge keel.

    How are you going to do the flip? Crane or man-power?

    To flip the boat, a crane was used, the boat was fixed to the crane with the help of soft straps, in the places of the hull in the area of the deck there are spacers to prevent the body from shrinking.
    The whole procedure of the canting went smoothly without complications, the yacht again took its place, the work on assembling the deck begins.

    In the boat there is a place for the installation of a diesel engine and a saildrive drive, but at this stage the boat builder preferred a 10-15 hp outboard motor

    I guess a clear advantage of having much of the internal structure as furniture means you can close up on the outside without having to leave a large hole in the deck for getting sheets of ply in. Makes a lot of sense.

    Given the interest in CNC cut sail and oar dinghys and mini-cruisers, Im surprised there seems to be little interest in this thread. Is it because its just not as interesting to watch a large jigsaw puzzle come together, or something else, perhaps not enough exotic hardwoods being ripped down and dimensioned by hand with hand cut joints?

    I'm very interested and wait keenly for updates, but there doesn't seem to be much point in posting questions when I'm really just an interested lurker. I suspect I'm not alone in this. Anyway, for what it's worth, I'm impressed with how it's progressing and I'm hoping to see this boat launched in due course.

    The boat is built quickly enough if you take into account the fact that the work is carried out by one person and only 1-2 days a week, today the total construction time is less than 100 working days.

    I guess the other thing is, Unik is getting on with it, no asking for help or advise, i suppose that can cut down a lot of interaction.

    Thats a big big accomplishment for 100 days labour.

    I am a professional marine architect and shipbuilder, designing boats is my profession, so I do not have any difficulties with this )))


    This boat is built by an amateur who previously had no experience in the construction of boats, he lives very far from me and all the questions that he has during the construction we decide using a computer and phone.
