She is a thing of beauty. How will you finish the gunwhale edge?

Evening Guys

A big big thanks for the great comments. I am winging it a bit and not sure if I am doing the right things so when your comments come back it is of great relief. It is you guys that help make this build possible so a massive thanks.

Jacques taking photos of this boat is a joy, your design is stunning and I hope I can do it justice.

Dan I have attached one of my wonderful sketches of the planned gunwhales..... might change but something like this. AND I have not fixed the deck / sole yet.... hoping the tanks will arrive in 3 weeks and planning to fit the engine at the same time.

Cheers Guys

Les looking good I would round over the outside upper edges so if someone sits on the deck the edges do not dig into their legs. :D

Hmmm..

Not a huge fan of the gunwhale. Like Tom says, it looks a bit sharp. A gunwhale can be sat upon or can support rod holders or stanchions or all of that. I like a gunwhale I can set a beer can on..

Maybe spend a weekend at a marina or more time on google before you commit to the drawing.

At a minimum, if someone smacks it with their head; they should not be hurtreal bad.

Hi Guys

Not getting much done at the moment, temperature in the workshop is about 110 degrees at the moment. Tooooo hot.

Manage to get the Engine mounts bolted on so will lift the engine in place over the next week or so for security.

Made the patterns for the wings which went great, just waiting for materials as all Greeks are on Holiday.....

Cheers

Les

I stop all work when the shop hits 100F. Too risky to get heat stroke.
