for all my friends!
June 03: The
fillets on all the seams inside the hull
look very good.
I trimmed the gunwales and gave them a final
sanding; I also gave the deck ply a final
step is to put a fillet on the top of the
external chines. This is where the Harmonica
leaked on its maiden voyage.
so far: Add $27.95 for a quart
of Sea Green Brightside paint by Interlux,
12 acid brushes for glue-spreading, and
$250 for black plastic oarlocks and sockets,
for a total so far of gunwales, for a total
so far of $289.93.
I got the three items at Obersheimer's;
the oarlocks were incorrectly tagged, but
they gave them to me at the tagged price
-- $1.50 times two. I got two sets because
I need two rowing stations, for single use
and use with a passenger. It was good of
them to sell the pieces at the price marked.
I didn't even have to ask. They deserve
your business, too!
Sailors' Supply 1884 Niagara St., Buffalo,
spent so far: Add five hours for
taping all the seams inside the hull and
applying the thickened epoxy, and three
hours on the gunwales and deck pieces, for
a total so far of 79 hours.
