And then of course, I had to find places to put everything in my micro-workshop. It reminded me of the days when we went on camping trips with our boys and all the gear and luggage had to be stowed and fit in the trunk like a puzzle. Ha! - having fun before the official start of fun.
- Glue the rub rails
- Glue the yard, boom, and mast
- Glue and sand the 4 pairs of strakes (planks)
- Glue and sand the bottom piece
- Apply epoxy on three sets of strakes on both sides (await sanding prior to a second coat
- Apply epoxy coat on one side of seats and bulkheads
- Glue, round and sand the two transom pieces and doublers
That's pretty much it.
Including the initial unpacking and storing, I am 25 hours into the project so far. CLC Boats really does a fabulous job on all counts: the directions in the manual, the incredible packaging, fabulous designs and their attentive service.
Having arrived on Page 36, it looked quite innocent at first but - gosh, it is demanding! It'll take me a few days just to complete the two coats of epoxy and sanding in between cured coats.
Okay, gotta go and do some more sanding...
