    In this video you can see that it is getting cold out here. Outside it was just below 0 degrees celcius and inside my workspace it was 2 degrees celcius. I have no problems with that, because inside my large tent it is 12 degrees celcius, which is comfortable and my epoxy seems to cure well. Outside of the tent, but inside the workspace I keep comfortably warm by wearing multiple layers of clothes, and by keeping busy. I cleaned the backbone parts that already have an epoxy coating with water and an abrasive pad to remove amine blush. I have to do that, because I am not using peel ply. I know for sure that I have amine blush, because I can feel it and when I don't clean well with water the 80 grit sandpaper gets clogged up quickly. Did some sawing, jointing and planing for backbone and hull stringers. I am very satisfied about the work done in the latest days. And I promise, for obvious safety reasons, I will not wear a long shawl anymore when I operate woodworking machines (or tuck it tight into my coat).

    In this video I continued with preparing the backbone parts. I really enjoy working on my boat. I would like to dedicate more time to it. There are always things to do, applying epoxy, removing amine blush, sanding, cleaning tools, making stringers. Outside it started snowing, the scenery around my workspace is very beautiful when there is a layer of snow. This weekend I also helped my friend Jean-Noel who is opening a restaurant, we painted parts of the kitchen.

    On this building day I did some backbone epoxy work and while the epoxy was curing I made some more 32x19mm and 45x19mm stringers. It was a very good day.

    There never appears to be a speck of dirt in your workshop. Has the Belgian government invented a method of vaporizing sawdust so that it never hits the floor? Or do you have a cleaning crew come in every time you change camera angles?
    Enquiring minds want to know.

    Hello Puttputt,
    I think it's me, I care a lot about a tidy workspace. Maybe I am a bit too obsessive about it. If I want to finish this project in my lifetime I might have to clean less and get more work done.

    I think i spend as much time looking for tools I misplace because I don’t clean up than you do cleaning up. And at the end of the day you have a beautifully organized shop while i’m still looking for my hat.
    Congratulations on your build Marcel. It’s going to be a spectacular project.

    On this boat-building day my son Louissanto wanted to help me again and he did some amazing epoxy work, used the table saw, jointer and planer. We had a good time together.


    Other wonderful news is that in february me and my family will be joining Stewart and Zaya on their Tiki 38 SV Luckyfish on a week long sail from Nassau to Georgetown. Link to Luckyfish Gets Away: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCkH...cqUOkQZqkelyPg

    In this video you can see that I applied some epoxy and I also washed many back bone parts with water to remove amine blush.

    On this day I was drawing the lower bulkheads on the lofting floor.

    Today I did a redraw of the lower bulkheads on the lofting floor, because I was not satisfied with the method I used in the previous video. The previous time I used a flexible ruler to draw curved lines for the lower bulkheads, but when I was at home and looked again at the plans I noticed that these are obviously straight lines. So I had to go to the workspace today to redraw the lower bulkheads together with Louissanto. I forgot to film or photograph the difference, but I will show it in the next video.

    On this day I reorganized one of the rooms, applied some epoxy on backbone parts, removed amine blush. Received several new pieces of 9mm Bruynzeel Hechthout and hardboard, stored them in my temperature and humidity controlled room. Did some sanding. Applied a second layer of epoxy on 2 pieces. And the last thing I did was re-checking the lower bulkhead drawings that I made on the lofting floor.

    Thank you for your kind comment WgMkr,
    I am trying to document everything to the best of my ability and learn from comments and hopefully also help other future Tiki 38 builders. I also rely very much on forums, videos and previous builders who maintained a blog. I am really enjoying the building process until now

    In this video I am making the lower bulkhead patterns out of hardboard. Using my new blockplane to straighten the edges of the patterns works much better than my previous method of using the random orbit sander.
