    Woohoo. Next lot of wood is finally in so hopefully we can get a bit done over xmas when Dad and I have a few more days off.

    By the way we are going to name her 'The Jealousy' after the similar boat my Dad's Dad made.

    The new timber all neatly trimmed to size by my new saw arrives via the trusty chariot.

    Umm ... how'd you get the Landrover to lie on its side like that and did the missus approve?

    We have prepared the block to take the stem and keep it aligned properly.



    My new umbrella stand came in handy today in the blistering heat. The plank on the left is being reglued after it split where there was a borer hole. I will fill the hole once it is dry.

    The rest are the chines being coated on one side and both edges before being layed on the boat.

    Fortunately it is a bit cooler in the hills so despite the 43 degree temps in the city we got a bit done today.
    i
    Finally glueing the stem and the first layer of the keelson into place. We also finished coating half of the gunwhales and chines so we will have stuff to go on with next time.

    I realised that the verandah was much better than under the umbrella.

    Ok so we used silicone bronze screws. Need to pick up some more tomorrow.

    The epoxy we didnt quite mix right so it took around 4-5 days to set. Seems to be holding ok now, except the clamped one which we opened up before the glue was set. Redoing it now.

    Oh yeah and we bought more clamps

    Love the Hartley lines!

    Looking nice. As those fasteners are permanent, you could dip them in epoxy before screwing them in, then covered the sunken heads in thickened epoxy. The epoxy on the threads helps them go in easier too. After the plywood is on the boat, you can't get to the screw heads ever again anyway.

    Yeah we countersunk them in enough so that they can be nicely buried in epoxy.

    Was I supposed to have a nifty block like that on the end of the stem to hold it straight??? Opps. Oh well, I just had to check it like 50 times while gluing it. It's straight now thankfully. I think I'll use that block next time though.

    A hot day today but we got in a few hours this arvo and got two more chines on. We actually snapped one trying to get it on, there is so much tension and the wood obviously had a weak point. So more scarfing for us .
