Evening all, had a marvelous afternoon/evening getting the main deck beam laminated. Not much to report on that front really, heated the epoxy to make it nice and fluid pre coated the wood and laid up a piece of 400gsm bi-axial in between the sections, applied clamps and left it to cure.
Public service announcement: if you need to cut glass mat, get electric scissors. Just do it they’re amazing!
I also spent a bit of time servicing my older and more heavily used power tools, as you can see in the pic the brushes on the router were completely shot, the long one is a new one.
Next on the list is flush cutting the beam and shaping it to fit in the boat, then cladding in the beautiful iroko that’s due early next week.
That’s all for now
