Still fairing

The long, slow and laborious process of fairing continues. I was happy that over the weekend, I did make port and starboard contact at the bow. Although it's hard to tell if it's just the angle of the photo, it looks like I need to balance the symmetry of the joining sheer lines. I also have a small gap there on the front starboard side that I need to fill with epoxy.

The great news is, even though fairing is taking a long time, it is getting closer to being done.


  1. I'm looking forward to the day when I can start fairing. Not so much because I want to do it, but more so because I know that I will be reaching the apex of of completing the hull.

    I'm almost ready to start mounting frames to the building form. Just a few more days of tweaking and tying up loose ends.

    The build is looking great Mike!

  2. Thanks Clipper! My undertaking isn't quite as big as your's. I know when you're done, you're gonna have one heck of a boat!

    1. Oh I don't know! I would say that building two boats at the same time qualifies as a big project!

      Thanks for the compliment. I hope it turns out as good as I envision it.
