Like a rocket! Do you paddle as hard as you build?

In short bursts?
Not sure :p


As I feared the paper wasn't waxy enough and became part of the boat......

I shaved as much of the extra off the opposite sides and finished off with a little palm sander.

Got Landon involved in the first coat of epoxy.

The panels seem pretty solid so I didn't put anything on top of this side.

Got called into work so not sure if I'll get the molds cut out today or not.

I think I would go ahead and cover the whole table with some visqueen. It will say you from gluing something to the table sooner or later. I have never used any peelply but I understand it works great, if spendy. I have tried covering my layup with plastic but never had much luck but others swear by it. You just have to see what works for you. It is warm enough now to do most of your work with the medium hardner. It will give you more working time. Save the fast for when you are in a hurry of the temperature drops some.

Narfi, glad to see Landon is involved right from the very start of this build!!! Nice build temps too, compared to 95 here in Florida and even worse in the warehouse!! Jeff

Got the 5 molds layed out on an old partial piece of osb. Since I had so many lines I used a sharp to mark around the cut lines. (Was paranoid I would cut one of them on the centerline on accident)

Added 4 inches to the top of each mold so it will sit up a little when upside down.
...... just realized I need to read the plans more.... I'm not sure if those are all level or not.... I may have screwed up on that not sure yet.........

I cut them out and sanded the edges smooth.

Question: How do you know where to drill the stitching holes?

Where there is very little curvature (pressure) I used one every 6". Where the hull curves more (more pressure on the stitches, I spaced them every 2 - 3". This worked well in the bow of the FS13. It was tighter than 2" in a couple of stitches but that was more to do with alignment... :roll:

I second the part about laying down some plastic sheets. I did that and it works out nicely. No worries about spilling a drop here or there nor about pieces of wood (or tools) sticking to the table. If you do get a hole in the plastic, packing tape makes a nice patch!!!

I understand 6" or whatever increments I decide..... But how do i align them from panel to panel?????? They obviously have to match.

I could use the 24" marks but they are straight where the panels curve........

Centers working out measured along the curve?

Measure from the baseline and make a mark on all the stations so that it gives you enough to work with.
