Chine glued up.

Last weekend dad came over to help with the glue up of the chine clamps. This is a two person job, not essential, but to keep the glue fresh you need to move fast. I don’t think I’d attempt it without the help.

Because of the thorough dry run, there was no doubt it would go together, the only doubt has been will the epoxy hold on the narrow surfaces of the bulkhead! Clearly, when the second layer of timber is on, and then the hull of the boat added, nothing will be going anywhere, but releasing the clamping is not something I’ll be doing soon.

    I wish I understood what you were writing about. Regardless, the photos are great! At this rate you will be sailing her before Michael’s canoe gets into the water.

    Haha! Looks like I might need to get a wriggle on. The hull is starting to look like a real boat now. Very very pleasing.

      It is pleasing. Still enjoying it. Still a long way away from floating. Unlike your canoe. Thanks for the comment/compliment Carol. Leave my boyfriend alone with those loose comments on his progress.
