    Thanks guys.
    I'm thinking I may do one more coat before the flip so I get the laps real good and then the finish coats after the flip.
    I like this paint, but is does take a long time to harden, and I don't think I want to wait a couple months to get her right side up.
    Plus if the paint gets scuffed in the straps during the flip it will be no big deal.
    That's my story and I'm sticking to it! ... for now... I think...

    Got Ninigret flipped today.
    Just me and my son. Took us 5 hours.
    I had one chain hoist and one come along to lift, and used ratchet straps to do the turning in the two 16 foot lifting straps.
    Slow and easy and no surprises.

    That's how I flipped my Redwing....maybe not as slow as I should have, but it worked awesome and no one was injured. I'm a big chain hoist fan.

    You started 10 Oct 2018. I predict that you'll be done 10 Oct 2020.

    Well, I am finally back to doing something on the boat today.
    In what seems to be my typical fashion, once the hull got flipped everything stalled out for me. I was just stuck for a while there figuring out what to do next...
    So today I got most of the cockpit sole beams cut and fit to the hull. Not epoxied yet.
    One thing I did do during my down time was ordered, and received the gas tank. Plans called for a custom 18 or 19 gallon tank... I bought a plastic 12 gallon that fits the spot good.
    This little 25 horse I think is going to be so good on gas that I don't think the larger tank would ever be needed. The price was right on the smaller tank too, so that helped make the decision.
    Getting some momentum back...

    If I saw that colour on a sample chart I would give it the big thumbs down for anything, but it looks really sharp there. Lovely fair plank edges too, nice job.

    Slow going on ninigret.
    Still plugging away at the sole beams, and I beveled the tops of the chines so water won't pool on them.
    That's another one of those pay me now or pay me later things.

    Boat is coming along splendidly! It seems like some days there is a lot of visual progress and others it hardly looks like you did anything, even if it was a lot of work. I spent the day sanding and laying down fairing epoxy...hours of work that hopefully will go unnoticed when the boat is done. I'm looking forward to your next installment.

    The cockpit sole beams are now all in.
    The plans call for the beams to be 12 inches on center, which only had one beam attaching to a frame, the others kind of just floating around in space out there...
    So I put a beam on each frame, which are 20 inches apart, and added another in between, so I'm on 10 inch centers instead.
    Doing so only added one extra beam so not much weight penalty at all. The beams are 5/8" by 1-7/8" cut from 2X3 that I used for the cross spalls. I'm calling it spruce.

    Good to see some progress. It get's kind of slow going sometimes.

    What's the purpose of that "well" up forward? For a tank perhaps?

    Just a floor hatch. May be housing a battery, or bilge pump, or both.
    The fuel tank goes a bit more forward of that, under the bunks in the cabin.

    I would keep the fuel tank easy to remove. I have found that with the gas we are getting these days it is good to be able to drain the tank completey at the end of the season and start with a dry tank in the spring. That and a water separator have saved me carb. problems

    Boat is looking great this is one of my favorite designs, but my mooring field is limited to 20'.

    That is something to consider.
    I do plan on using only 100% gas.
    Don't need no ethanol problems, especially on a brand new outboard.

    Lately I have made up a deck beam camber pattern and have been using it to bevel my inwales and breasthook.
    Grew a bigger pair and cut the camber in the transom...it was easy enough with the circular saw. Cut about an eighth wide, and did a 90 degree cut... I didn't dare try to angle cut it.
    The electric planer made quick work of roughing in the bevel.

    Looks like it has most of the bend in the midsection, or is it parabolic?

    Funny how much longer it takes to make visible progress once it's right side up. You're getting close though.

    It's parabolic.
    Yeah, it seems to be pretty slow going lately, but I'm sure at some point soon things will really start to happen.
    I just keep plugging away at it.

    The past couple days I have made some progress on the splash well.
    It will be a pretty involved glue up when it all goes together, with all the little framing pieces that are under the plywood there... and the bulkhead glues in at the same time too...
    I'm still holding out to epoxy it in because I'm still contemplating the clamps, and how I'm going to do them.

    2 inch scupper drains....
    I'm thinking about putting a flap on the outside, but it will need to work with the 15 degree angle of the transom...
    I may just glue up some wedges and mount the flap to them... unless someone knows of 15 degree scuppers???

    Looks good!

    ( You triple checked size of outboard, clearances for turning, trimming and tilting, and for the cables and wiring harneess and for the steering cable or hydraulic lines? Just askin. )


    Commerciallly-available scuppers work. All outboard boats have a 15 +/- degree angle transom. The flap may have a little gap, but if you are backing down or in a following sea and going slow, the water seals em right up.

    What's the difference in height between the cockpit sole and the DWL?

    Kevin

    Example:

    The flaps are replaceable.

    Kevin, the cockpit sole is at the DWL.
    The splash well drains are about 4 inches above the DWL.
    I've done lots of measuring and re-checking my measuring so I think I'm going to be OK. Fingers crossed...

    Well at 4 inches up, you should have mo trouble with regular scupper flaps. In fact,might not need them at all.

    Just the cabin opening cut so far.
    The deck beam clamped up top there is 2-1/2" camber. It does not look right.
    I'll have to play around with some increased camber until I get it to look more like Atkin drew it --- but did not specify in the plans.

    Doesn’t look wrong to my eye, it would be way wrong if it were the deck beam at the fore end of the cabin. Just my perspective based on the photo in your last post.

    She looks amazing! I always have to fight the temptation to rush, just to see how the next step turns out. Constantly telling myself to enjoy the process. We live in such an "instant" world that it is tough to concentrate on the pleasure of workmanship. Yet we miss so much if we succumb. So taking your time to get it to look "just right", even if that's just to your eyes, will be much more satisfying in the end. Well done to this point!

    My deck beam in the previous picture is 2-1/2" camber at 80 inches, which is the max beam of the hull.
    I tried one at 3-1/2" at 80" --- still not right....so I tried again at 3-1/2" camber at 67 inches, which is the width of the cabin...
    Getting better, but now it occurs to me that maybe I should just scale off the plans....so I'll try that next.
    I wonder if the front (windshield) and back beams should be the same camber???
    That is how I'm doing the deck beams...all from the same master beam.
