142. Once the coaming boards have be fit remove them from the hull. Installing one coaming board at a time, mix a small batch of the 12 minute epoxy and apply it to the slots at frame #F7 and #F10 as well as the faces of frames #F8 and #F9. Slide the coaming board down in place and with the hull laying on its side, place weights on the coaming board were the glued #F8 and #F9 frame are located behind the board. Once the glue has cured repeat the procedure for the opposite side coaming board.

143. The dash cowl frame part (7BB) is removed from laser sheet S4 and glue into the slots at the top of the just installed coaming boards. Use medium CA glue and glue the frame from the back or the side toward the front deck. Block sand the top of the frame (7BB) to the same angle as the coaming boards front angle.

144. Next a piece of the 1/4 x 1/4 balsa will be measured and cut to length to fit between the two coaming board and bent to conform to the deck camber. When fit glue the balsa down with the medium CA glue on the back side to the deck. With the balsa glued to the deck, take a Xacto knife and trim the front edge of the balsa block at the same angle as the fronts of the coaming boards.

145. From laser sheet D2 remove the mahogany veneer cowl part C. This part must be pre- warped as was done with the mahogany veneer transom to conform to the radius of the top frame (7BB).

146. The mahogany veneer is over sized in the width so center the part with equal over hangs of the coaming boards. The bottom of the cowl will have to be sanded at an angle at the bottom to conform with deck camber. Once fit, tape the cowl down tight against the frame, coaming boards and the along the deck. Gluing of the cowl is done with the hull turned upside down and using the medium CA glue and accelerator. The glue will be run down the back of the frame (7BB) from side to side, down the corners of the coaming boards, and across the cowl where the shaped balsa deck former meets the mahogany veneer of the cowl. Spraying of the accelerator after a few seconds will set the glue in place. Remove the masking tape from the cowl and trim and block sand the ends of the cowl flush with the outsides of the coaming boards. Using 120 grit sand paper round over the top edge of the cowl that is over lapping the frame.

147. Before starting any interior work it is necessary to install, BUT NOT GLUE, the previously fit left and right cockpit side boards. Next remove the left and right floor board parts FBL and FBR from laser sheet S3. Mark the back sides of the boards L and R so as not to mix them up when fitting. The floor board have a straight laser cut center line cut which will be lined up over the center line of the keel. Take the left floor board and set it on the floor board frame up against the the bottom of the cockpit side boards. Check and see if the floor board is over the center line of the keel, if so, note by how much. The outside of the floor boards is were any material will be sanded off when fitting the floor boards laser cut straight edge to the centerline of the keel. Once fit remove it from the hull and do the same procedure with the right floor board. NOTE: The floor boards in the kit are laser cut of mahogany ply wood. The real boat has a mahogany deck made up of planks the same width as the planking on the hull. We simulated this by scoring the deck at 1/2 intervals from the center edges of the floor boards to the outside with the back of the Xacto knife blade. When stained and varnished it will look like planking.

148. The gear box cover for the V-12 motor comes thru the bulkhead frame #F7. The gear box is made up of laser cut parts GBR, GBL, GBF, GBB, from laser sheet S4, and from laser sheet D1 two parts GBT with the grains running in opposite directions. The first item to glue together is the two pieces of the mahogany veneer GBT using the medium CA glue. This will build up the thickness and prevent the piece from warping later. The four sides of the box are assembled on a flat waxed paper surface, using the drawing DWG 8 for reference.

149. The assembled gear box should slip into its slots in the bulkhead frame #F7 and be above the floor boards about 3/32”. This will allow the floor boards to be removed from the hull for battery changes.

152. The dash board, part 7B from laser sheet S4, is next to be fitted into position in the slots at the bottom of the coaming boards. The dash board will slide up in the slots with the top of the dashboard going up against the inside of the mahogany cowl. If necessary, sand the back edge of the dash for a good fit against the cowl.

154. The front and rear seat cushions parts are all on laser sheet S8. The seat cushions backs have been laser etched with the locations for the hack saw blade cuts needed for the rolled and pleated seat backs for the seats. The use of drawings DWG 13 & DWG 14 will help in the assembly of the seat cushions and seat backs.
