February 2013: Glassin' it up here Boss

01_laz_bulkhead_s

    New port Laz bulkhead, the blue is a minicell foam pad to manage void and to keep the bulkhead's rigidity from printing through and interrupting the fair curve of the hull as it flexes in the water.

02_bias_cloth_s

    Rachel prepares some double bias strips for tabbing in the new bulkhead

03_cockpit_bungs_s

    Armed with a bradpoint drill and a chisel, bungholes crumble in fear

04_bilge_paint_s

    Second coat of deep bilge paint. Just slap it on. All you have to do is wipe, sand, wipe, abrade, roll, tip, and drip catch. Oh, and do it all while crawling. And breathing toxic vapor. In the cold. Three times. I'm having fun!

05_lots_o_screws_s

    Cockpit ready for decking removal shortly. We're going to see how the foredeck renewal goes first before diving into this one

06_replacement_stringers_s

    New quarterberth stringers. Believe it or not scribing two lines and cutting these freehand on the band saw was way easier than trying to measure them any other way. Not sure how you'd do it without a good bandsaw though. Or how you would do anything really.

07_foredeck_scraping_s

    Scraping off the old polysulfide from the foredeck. Next to lay out the hawsepipe holes and figure out where to mount our classic Lewmar windlass

08_scrubbytime_s

    Engine painting time! Scrubbing all the covers, tanks, adapters, housings, etc. So much gunk on eevrything!

09_drying_rack_guard_s

    Bruno supervises the drying process, keeping dew drops at bay.
