We’ve had a few days of decently warm weather lately so I’ve been able to make some progress on the epoxy work. I’ve added oak ledgers to the thwarts to carry some side benches, overdrilled and filled the fitting holes with thickened epoxy, faired out the area for the mast partner, and added a doubler to the centerboard case to carry a pair of cleats for the downhaul and snotter lines.
Here’s the updated todo list:
- Rebed all the fittings
- Install the mast partner
- Make side benches
- Paint everything
- The keel is getting a little chewed up from the trailer rollers
- Build a flat bed on the trailer so the keel is supported better
- Repack the trailer bearings
- Possibly lower the spring weight on the trailer.
