Georgian Summer Break

Webb Chiles has posted his log of the voyage from Bundaberg to Darwin, Australia. He asks for help proofreading the log and there are a lot of typos in it. It is at inthepresentsea at blogspot.com. You can find out more about his little boat at http://moore24.org/.

Left=North

The 3 end pieces, cedar, of beam #2 were glued in place all at the same time. It was tricky because they had to fit underneath the beam brackets, one at the end of the beam and the other at the inboard gunwale. I had to plan which surfaces get the epoxy “glue hard” mixture which is like mayonnaise [...]

The Chimney Effect

After putting the beginnings of beam #2 into the beam brackets in the starboard hull, it was built out toward the port hull by adding a few of the prefinished planks. This beam was being assembled in the same way as beam #3, but its location made the work a lot easier. A pair of cedar 2X4‘s extended [...]

Secrets of the Culinary Trade

A tropical depression was forecast to come in from the gulf, cross northern Florida, and hit us with high winds and torrential rains. Work ceased and we battened down the hatches. Some rain did fall intermittently and I read a couple books on the kindle. One was “iWoz”, Stephen Wozniak’s story [...]

Heat

Heat. Heat and humidity. One report was that the heat index was 116 yesterday. I got out 4 planks for beam #2 in the morning and planned to add one plank to the beginnings of the beam, which are beginnings of assembly on sawhorses. This assembly will be inserted into the beam brackets, which are [...]

Just Squidding

The lower 2/3 of Beam #3 are complete, that is, the two bottom 2X6 planks and the two middle vertical 2X4 planks are glued in place. All the exterior surfaces have been covered with epoxy and arctic white paint except for a couple stretches in the middle of the beam where the crossdeck framing is too [...]

Capn Andy/cool, seasonal
When I began pulling the boat apart to work on the rot in the sternposts, I found more rot in the #4 beam. This was unexpected and not yet dangerous, but the beams are merely large balks of wood, easy to build, heavy, and not so easy to install. It looks like this will be a priority job following the sternpost repair.

Recently it was announced the Polynesian Catamaran Association magazine, Seapeople, has been archived at http://www.pca-seapeople.net/sea.people.html. This is a wealth of Wharram catamaran information from the peak years of self built catamarans (so far).
