« Part 16: "Peg system" at work Part 17 of Building a 25' Ply on Frame Cabin Cruiser series Part 18: In the Meanwhile... (Don't miss today's earlier entry. This is extra.) »

My “tools of the trade” for final prepping include belt sander, dremel max, and block sander. (Beats the last build when I was using a steak knife!)

Rather than measure the S/C on the starboard side to the frame, I compared the heights (C/L to S/C) with the port side. If they were within an 1/8” of each other, I called it satisfactory and screwed the S/C in. When I got to the stem, I realized I’d cut my rail a tad short. No problem. Instead of cutting a notch in the stem, I shaved the S/Cs and screwed them directly in. I will add some wedges behind them for added support. I am leaving the stem flat to receive an outer stem.

Looking good!

Time to back out the S/C and screw back in with resin. I’ll complete the task tomorrow. After vacation, it’ll be time to fair!

Oh yes, I almost forgot. It wasn’t all smooth sailing. I found my line off a bit and needed to wedge one frame. I also cracked a seem on the transom when warping it into place. I’ll be grinding resin out of it after the plywood is installed. I’ll then patch it with some thickened resin before adding foam between the frames and another layer of ply on the inside.

It’s starting to look like a boat. Looking good. It’s going to be a big one.

Hey Al, this is looking great! May I ask why this blog entry isn’t included with your other serialized build blog posts?

Well I can see the amount of hard-work being put in, its a very complicated stuff to make you need to make a blue print by Buy Research Paper Online, loads of investment takes place and its very hard to manage all the stuffs together, you need expert labors who can cut the ply and fix it according to the given blueprint plan.hope they made it perfectly with no mistakes.
