April, 2004

Completed block, walnut shell.

April 23, 2004

A month of serious over-commitment on my part. Between the house, job, the final stages of my programming class, and a nasty bout of the flu, there hasn't been much time for boat stuff. I did manage to get the stainless thimbles for the blocks and the rope, so I've started finishing up the blocks in the evenings.

The picture shows the first block. This particular shell has been the prototype or first completed from the start. While all of the others have shells of elm, this one is walnut. The walnut is from a stash I inherited from my father, who inherited it from his father-who bought it from the widow of the guy who'd cut the tree down. All of this means it's been air-drying for about a century by this point. I've got perhaps twenty board feet of it left, and save it for special projects.

The plan for the weekend-aside from studying for finals-is to laminate the parts for the centerboard trunk. I'd like to have the hull right-side up before July, which means centerboard trunk installed, rudder tube in place, bottom and sides glassed and finished, and the bottom painted.

Completed blocks.

April 26, 2004

Finished the inventory of blocks for the project. Got the first bits of the centerboard trunk laminated.

April 29, 2004

My programming final is out of they way. Just the last project to complete before May 3. Looks like centerboard trunk work over the weekend. This is assuming the temperature stays high enough. It's been a strange week-two days of really light snow flurries, alternating with seventy degree weather.
