Starting on beam mounts

I didn’t take as many pictures as I would have liked during the process, mostly because it was with my phone (again… sorry… I’ll remember my camera soon!)

Took us a few hours to get the cradles stable and then to level the boat using a series of water-levels (tubes placed at correct points) and then verifying with laser-level.

Once that was done, holes were cut.  Here’s port-aft :

As you can see, we also decided to leave the extra bit above the mount to keep the aft section sturdy, but the blocking at the aft keel is taking all the load still.

Here are two exterior shots of the stbd and port forward mounts :

and last picture is the inside of the forward beam mount bulkhead :

All mounts are solid now with bog (decided to use cotton-fiber with cabosil even though it’s probably over-kill) and will be ready for us to remove the placement jigs, finish bogging and then start the laminating process.

    1. Well, we got all the laminates in for the port aft beam mount but stopped there. It’s very slow going right now for lots of reasons.
