Re: FF in Kathleen GA

Thank for the responses. I will probably cut out the chine notches, but I have a 2 week TDY and won’t be back until mid March, so I will be taking a break.

I’ll post some updates then

Re: FF in Kathleen GA

So today, I trimmed up most of the gussets, laminated the bottom pieces on the transom(since I jacked up the only piece I had wide enough) spaced out the frames to the proper length, cut the keel notches on all the frames and dry fitted the stem and keel. I measured it out and I think my final size ...

Re: FF in Kathleen GA

Re: FF in Kathleen GA

You're making great progress Conrad and will be caught up to me in no time. This was the exciting part of the build for me so far, seeing it take shape and starting to get a feel for the size. After the flip, you'll really appreciate how much room is in it. Sooooo, I’m getting ready to mark out and...

Re: FF in Kathleen GA

I've realized that I'm horrible about noting people's responses on this thread. If you've commented or responded to a question, your advice and comments aren't ignored :). Work and 3 toddlers can keep me pretty busy ;) Thanks!

Re: FF in Kathleen GA

Frames 1-6 are built, 4-5-6-stem are being encapsulated. The transom knee has been built and encapsulated. I won't work on the boat tomorrow. Flying & the epoxy needs time to cure anyways.
