23-6 Wide Body Complete!
« on: January 18, 2013, 09:16:49 PM »
Over the past couple of evenings I've been able to get Matt K's boat out of my shop and sort materials. Tonight I glued the bottom panel scarfs. I plan on getting a couple of full days in this weekend.

Not till Monday AM. I'm going to get my self dispensing epoxy pump set up today and build an insulated storage box for it with a light bulb in it. I also want to get some of my light fixtures in the ceiling replaced they get hot and always seam to shut off on the side of the boat I was working on while building my WB a real pain in the A**

 Built the epoxy cart from a old cart from work. The 5g buckets were dispensed into 1g milk jugs. Lightbulb was in base at one end and jugs accessible thru dropin hatch. Pump on top with insulated wood cover to keep warm. Only downside was it was easy to dispense epoxy so we went thru L-O-T-S. But then again we wanted a strong build (messedup ocean, mods such as divedoor & HD davit,etc.). B & B

Ya got to quit keeping your shop so clean your making the rest of us look like slobs. At the rate your going you'll get her in the water this year no problem.
Tell Matt if he falls asleep on the Grady like that he will have to clean the boat all by himself this summer.

It's just going amazingly smooth. 1 hour Thursday + 2 hours Friday + 8 hours Saturday, + 7 hours today. That includes 2 trips to the hardware store. Even had time to do a few honey-do's in between so no one feels neglected.
