Blessed are the queue jumpers, for they fill a 3 day weekend and leave our hands covered in glue:
Charlene and I started construction on the hull this weekend, in luan and redwood. We think we’re building a fairly robust hull, but we are going to glass the seams, and we’ll probably end up building a few extra ribs to brace the bottom a little more robustly.
We got the sides cut and fitted, and the bottom glued on but not yet trimmed. There’ll be a bunch of scraping to remove squeeze out, because we want to varnish or oil the inside, but the hull is starting to come together.
