    Re: It Begins..... Seafarer Ventura Stringers and floor.

    The cloudiness comes from heat build up doing multiple layers.
    Shouldn't lay more than 1100gsm in one go. Don't quite know how I remembered that.
    Great build thread.
    Keep up the good work!

    Re: It Begins..... Seafarer Ventura Stringers and floor.

    Got a bit done this morning.
    Cut and fitted the forward bulkhead. Happy with it.
    Had a bit of glue left over, didnt want to waste it, so found another bit to stick in.
    Dunno what youd call it, but it's in.
    Did a bit of glassing. Didn't plan it out too well, so ended up climbing all over it.
    Got the small outer stringer glassed in, was gonna do the bigger one, but found some shitty glass that needs fixing first, so I'll clean that up before I glass the rest in.
    One thing, not sure if I should be giving advice, but there's one idea that I had that's turned our well. When I cut the old floor and stuff out, I left the edges in place, the plan was that when i came to putting it back together I'd know where it all went. Worked a treat, now i measure up, then grind the old lip out, new piece in.
    Been good.

    Few more update pics.
    Havent been getting as much done lately as I'd like. Seems everyone wants a piece of me on the lead up to Christmas, but been trudging along.
    Getting the cabin rebuilt.
    Was planning on flowcoating inside this storage compartment before putting the top pieces on, but ended up finding a bunch of shitty glass that needed a grind back and redo, done now and side bits on.
    Still plenty of access to flowcoat inside this arvo maybe, possibly next few days......
    Anyway, pics attached.20181201_161117.jpg20181202_133512.jpg20181202_133521.jpg20181205_095722.jpg20181205_101656.jpg

    More progress shots. Actually looks like im making progress now.
    I cut out the cabin shelves and also the little shelf near the helm. So pretty much removed the last of what needs removing.
    Got the portside in and glassed, then bulkhead in. Same same starboard.
    New shelves are cut and glassed, ready to be put in.
    Also stuck in shelf supports.
    Heap of glassing to follow.
    Got a couple days of helping a mate, so boats secured against shitty weather, hopefully back into it soon.20181210_153837.jpg20181211_102533.jpg20181211_160301.jpg
