Week Thirteen – Wednesday

The shop returned to its former glory today. Prior to us adding a layer of sawdust to everything in sight, this space was originally used to manufacture horse trailers, some large enough to accommodate 6 horses. With all the equipment on hand, the trailer frame only took a day to be fabricated. A little paint, running gear and lights and we’ll have a trailer ideally suited to match the size and weight of our boat.

Meanwhile, at the other end of the shop, additional cleanup of the boat interior was underway, scraping and sanding to get rid of any excess epoxy. The support structure for the floorboards was installed, cleats were cut for both sides of the frames and floors were shaped using the moulds for patterns. All the pieces were then glued and clamped in place.
