GV13 Build Progress

Post by ScottE »

Been getting lots of inspiration from other builders, thought I'd post some progress pics to share. I can see that finishing the interior will take more planning and patience than the hull!Image
I'm planning to add soles in the cockpit and forward areas, with additional center stringers to be added next.Image
I plan to box the rear quarters at the same height as the rear seat. I'll route the steering and control cabling along the starboard gunwale (also to be added), to simplify bends. I'll post more pics after I get the hollow stringers foamed and finish inside glassing.

Cool boat and nice pics.. Seems like it will be solid and strong.

For some reason this boat has started to interest me. Maybe I am becoming a realist on the waters I have available to me. And why I am using the boat.

I checked out your gallery. It is nice to have a visual to questions going thru the mind..

Keep us updated..

How many designs call for those stringers? Is it a smaller boat thing?

They look very efficient nice big footprint on the hull.

More progress photos, MadRus' influence is everywhere... :D

Installing drain from anchor locker to motorwell, under sole thet will be foamed Image

I'll be boxing in the stern quarters at seat height, and adding ~4-5" gunwales.

I wish I would have waited to paint the hull until I'd finished the interior work as I'm dinging it (paint scratched), almost every work session...Image

Thanks for the feedback folks, I can't wait to get this thing wet!

:) I just use the official Boat Builders Central weights - the twenty or so empty gallon epoxy jugs, refilled with water...
