Building a 17 meter aluminum cutter
A huge amount of work went into getting to this point... it looks like such a simple job. Nope, more time consuming than one would think. The outside bead is not the only thing holding the glass in, its just eh visible part. This was then smoothed with a filleting tool. Next post the end result.
We're soon going to place the pilothouse windows! You might ask, why did we leave it for so long? First weather didn't permit, then other projects got in the way, but now we'll get it done. By monday all should be in place.
A sneak peek at the workshop and the forward most bulkhead.
Our first templates10/26/2011
Here we are making templates to see if what we planned is what we really want. If all is well then the template is already done for all the ply.... its just a matter of cut, treat, and place.

With weather improving on average, its time to take the hatches seriously.
The invisible work09/19/2011
Insulation, ahh insulation. I wonder if I was temporarily insane to not use spray on foam... we have been cutting and gluing for sooo long. But I don't regret it... the end result pays for the time spent. But its one of those invisible jobs... there's a ton of those on a boat, they need to be done, yet nobody will know it was done.
