We temporarily installed the forward sections of the bulwark to see how it is going to look. :D We haven't cut out the aft sections due some questions I have about their callouts. the plans say to join the sections with butt blocks, but I'm going to try and scarf them. :wink:

In the mean time I have been practicing my varnishing on the cabin clamps and beam lamination.

The bulwark is installed. :D We had a few areas that wouldn't line up right and no matter what we did nothing worked, then I remembered a youtube video by Redbarnboats where he used bolts and washers to help with alignment. It works like a charm.

After sanding I will post pictures.
Now I have a question. The plans for the inboard has the skeg ending at station #2 and I'm planning on having the well at station #1. So do I need to extend the skeg further aft? Also, would it be better to cut the well out now or after fiberglassing the hull?

Wires and bolts removed and all cleaned up. Still need to tweak the leading edge.

Grand Chillin,
I am having a problem with my plans for the pug and was hopping you could help. I the Plans for the sides, I am very confused about the drawing for the Aft side.
On the layout the base line is 16 inches down but on the dimensional layout it appears upside down. How do I get these measurements correct? Also, how long is the #9 arch supposed to be?
Thanks for any information you can send my way.

Annesboat,
The layout is correct. Look at the layout, when you rotate the aft side over, it lines up with the forward side at the butt block.
As far as # 9 for the stern. I cut holes in my pattern sheet and laid it down using the last two nails as guides. I hope this helps.

Did we have a discussion yet on how you are going to delivery your fleet to the G6 this year?

I think you were speaking of cutting a well?? You talking fer an outboard? If so what about that set up with the brigs and straton homemade dealy where the shaft and rudder all move up together, more for a skiff that would be running in shaller wader but it may be sum'n you could incorporate here. I think HotRod posted pics of that set up somewhere here....

It's comming along great man!

Not yet. Are you volunteering your help. :shock: :wink: :P
If not I figured multiple tow vehicles or one big trailer. :roll:

She is flipped and the screw holes are filled. :D Final sanding tomorrow. I still don't know if I need to build the well before I glass or not. :? I'm thinking I need to do the well first, that way I can fill in any screw holes before the glass :?:

Personally I always build my wells, framing them in place and glass the entire unit and panels when I glass the bottom. This allows me to paint any and all cosmetic materials in one step. One thing to consider is how thick do you plan on doing the well transom? I take it that maybe 3/4" tops is probably all that you need. But you should also do some neat mitreing at the inside edges if the well is free standing. Most people also use small cleats at the corners but with biaxall and fillets your need for any wooden cleats are done away with.
