Time for lunch!

Only two more trusses to go. But that can wait for a while. Warm, sunny, and beautiful here in Sandpoint today.

Not much Boxtop progress

But I’ve been busy. There is much to do to prepare for winter and assembling the Boxtop hull. That includes building a storage shed to free up more space in the garage for boatwork.

The pictures below are from yesterday and today. It shows a 8 foot by 10 foot foundation on concrete block and treated skids.

Tomorrow I’ll build the trusses, and crank out the sidewalls. Looks like the T1-11 won’t be available till Tuesday. We will see what happens. Either way there is about 8 days of dry weather forecasted. I think I can get it completed by then.

Hatchboard bulkhead layup

Posted in Road Trip to Florida

Lots done today

Here is the last bulkhead sitting up against the transom of my Paradox drying, I still have lots of work to do to finish, but I actually got more done than expected. Standing next to the bulkhead gave me a real sense of how big this thing is going to be.

The last bulkhead

This happens to be the bulkhead that houses the drop-board of the companionway. Due to the slow drying glue I use (to make life easy on myself), I’d expect this to take a few days. It’s a fairly complex and flimsy (out of the boat) assembly so wish me luck.
