I had to test how the wood would look with a coat of poly, could not resist.

I am now all around the tight curvation of the sidewall, 120 or so planks and still a lot more to go.
I coated what I have again with poliurethan, semi gloss. It really lets the wood live, nice warm ton.
I had the planking on the backburner for 2 weeks, because I worked on the sails and final rigging of my schooner.
Sailing season is very close now and I want to have the Voodoo Child ready for it.

It has been a couple of month, but some rather unpleasant things have ruined my building a boat thing.

1. Sailing season had arrived an I had to get my scooners wet. How disgusting is that, I give it a 9.
2. My Company, I actually have to work in this stupid thing, I have to get rid of all those stupid and uncaring people that demand that the joint is open from 07:00 to 22:00. They ruin my day, I wish the economy would be bad, nobody would come to the business and I could built boats all day long.

But never the less I was able to make some progress.
I ran out of planks, 2 2x4x10 and 2 4x4x10 I had already obliterated into what I call planks.
But not enough, she is a Woman, Man has to slave, and she demands more, what a surprise.
So last week I got a breather from sailing the 2 masters, finally.
So I obliterated a nother 2x4x8 into 5x3mm and 8 feet planks and start that very demanding and disgusting task to glue one piece of tiny wood to a nother, how stupid is that, women, brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

First I installed the frame for the RC-Hatch in the rear and than started glueing.
More glue on my pants, shirt and up the nose, that nose picking habbit does not go along with gluey fingers, than on the tub, well, Her.

The rear is closed and I sanded it, I like it, I sande it 1000 grit and than ran for 30 mins a blade over it.

Yankovitch, if I knew what shookum means or is I would find the spelling
yesterday was a nother rough day I had lake duty and could not get any planking done.

making progress, slowly, 5 mm at a time.
Spent the last days with Wildfire preps, its a little worrysome in our neck of the woods. So I did some improovements on the fire fighting capabilities of the Ranch.

The planks are getting shorter and work progresses fast

so finally she is planked. Just the 2 hatches for the servos are left.
I need a brake from planking

I am waiting for the next batch of West System, I will use it with the clear hardener to cover the hull

Taking care of the pond.
Very nice.

so now I got the final sanding done, than I went over it again with a blade.
It is soft wood and the blade does good on it.

I have one spot I screwed up, I knew that I should have taken that plank out again, it is about 3 mm, where I knew I would in the end have to sand through the wood into the interior fiberglas, those hind sight things piss me off big time. You see it, you should fix it instantly, but you think you can swing it. grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
Well it is below the water line, but grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Next I have to built a rig, that allows me to cover the whole tub, top and bottom at the same time.
She has to stand upright so I can apply the poli in one go

looks super...would probably make a great flying model with a couple of detachable wings.....

Yankovitch I think once she got a toothpick with a towel or two on it, she. Might fly.
Jul 14, 2012, 05:42 PM
2 coats of epoxi are on, the first got very well absorbed by the wood.
