Not much to report. I’ve been sanding and scraping on the inside of the hull. I did what I could with the random orbit, then the scrapers. Neither would work in the points, so I just grabbed a piece of paper and did them by hand. It’s not perfect yet but that doesn’t matter because I have to sand it all again after filling the gaps. By the time all the little things are done, the inside will be smooth and ready for glass.
I did not do fills today because the snowblower acted up yesterday. I took a few pictures because I repaired it with wood. I bought it new in 1994 so some of the parts are no longer available. The drive chain keeps coming off so I made an idler out of wood. It lasted since last winter before wearing out, so I can’t complain. The old one just held pressure on the chain, the new one I made from ash, and made it round.
Sorry there wasn’t more progress. Between breakdowns and Dr. appointments it’s been tough getting any shop time. I plan on filling the holes and gaps tomorrow, hopefully nothing comes up. If I get out there I will have an update tomorrow evening. See you then.
