No problem with the engine weight.

Thanks Jacques

You you give advice on the other questions.

3. You have confirmed mounting the two knee braces up against the inside of the inner stringers is fine. The other part of my question was laminating them, I can not see them on the schedule. ( My question was do they come under the superstructure or stringers and floor frame schedule. )

4. Frame E shows the floor frame part of the frame going under the engine ? If this is so it cuts off access to the drip tray sump etc. It looks like you have about 230mm of frame is there a minimum incase I can not achieve that ?

Cheers

Les

Transom braces: same as frames.
Floor frame under engine: skip it but add one or several layers of glass in that box.

Christos Anesti! I am Orthodox, Les.

Sand, paint. Put a mat of some kind in the bottom to prevent delam. Dropping stuff is hard on laminates, even just chain, but also if you plan to home locker there..

Afternoon Guys

Apologise for the the lack of posting over the last month. Working hard on the boat plus I have been fishing a 5 day competition in Holland....( a couple of beers as well !!! )

The weather here is starting to get hot, very hot so I have been trying to get all the big panels glassed before it is to hot a I have to do these outside. Anyway progress so far, structural frames in and taped ( well nearly ) Sheer clamps fitted, deck glassed and in place, just need to trim the deck to fit the hull and then fix it and tape. Need to finish the anchor locker first though as will not be easy to get in to after the deck is on.

Once again sorry for the lousy photos.

Cheers

Les

Pictures are great. If you have time and want to, you can go edit the photo on a smartphone and modify the lighting or not and the phone will upload the pics correct orientation. Sometimes I do it; other times I'm too lazy.

Things look good. Cleats are generally supposed to be mechanically fastened with glass tapes. So, rather than a square cleat, a 45 on the bottom and a glass tape is insurance the cleat won't shear off the BH and leave you with a floppy sole there to repair.

Other than that, I see nothing else to remark; the work looks great.

Morning All

Cheers Dan / Tom

A little chaotic here daughter, husband and two grand kids ( 8 + 4 ) waring me out for a weeks holiday from the UK....

Dan the picture does not really show it but the sheer clamps are cut back at 45% and when the deck is trimmed and fitted I will tape both sides.

Will hopefully be back in the boat shed on Thursday !!!

Cheers

Les
