|Our Humble Laboratory|
|Curvy Bits: Nailers and Bulkhead Beams|
|Cheat Sheet... note bevel angles drawn along sides|
|Deadflat Plates ready to turn and join upright...|
After the first one, they are flipped onto loose copper plates which are then
nudged into position and fastened in place.
|End Sections... note transverse kerfs to ease bending.|
We'll flip 'em, join 'em to the Deadflat and later add their 2nd course of
planking, underlayment and copper.
|Lower S'brd Wall and first Bulkheads standing.|
|End piece about to get joined|
|All of our projects seem to attract a 'Ship's Cat'!|
|Three stages of retro-fit SIP (from left to right):|
I'm adding the inboard layer of 1/4inch ply,
Middle layer of 2x XPS foam (blueboard),
Inboard face of 1/2in hull, with 2x framing.
|As of yesterday... both walls on, Whiskey Plank in sight.|
Note Port Wall before Doubler Plates...
1ft lower course visible below upper, 4ft course.
3/4in Doubler Plates (visible aft) provide protection
and act as a Butt Strap, joining the two courses.
