1460 Hours So Far
Preparations continue to attach the final bits of deck. This means that all joints need to have an epoxy fillet. all of which need to be sanded and prepped ready for painting. Time consuming stuff, and how much effort do you put in to areas that will only be seen through inspection hatches? I’m learning to accept the odd uneven fillet or paint run, but with my OCD tendencies, it has not been easy.
I have made all the supporting framework for the decks. I have even remembered to finish the inspection hatch into the collision bulkhead/sail locker. I have adapted four kitchen cabinet knobs to use as fixing lugs. This will be placed inside the compartment before it is decked over, otherwise there is no way of getting it in!
