Can you give some more details on the sole? Materials, connection to supports and sealing, etc?

The deck core is .5" okume marine BS1088 plywood (Joubert). The underside has one layer of 1200 biax, epoxied for water proofing and helps stiffen it. The entire sole couldn't be installed as one piece, so I chose to join two sheets for each side using a payson joint, then installed each half, gluing it in place with thickened epoxy.

The edges of the sheets where hot coated with epoxy before installation, but I vee grooved the center joint after installation and filled with thickened epoxy before doing a half payson joint down the middle to complete the connection. Ground the tape from this operation flat with the surrounding area, then a layer of 1200 over the entire sole connecting it to the hull around the perimeter.

I have done the sole glassing one sheet at a time so I can bevel the edge before installing the adjacent piece to avoid overlap bumps. While this method forces a mechanical rather than a chemical bond, the benefits out weigh the costs. Epoxy provides very satisfactory secondary bonding characteristics and not having bumps created by overlaps eases fairing by an order of magnitude.

Speaking of fairing; rather than peel ply the sole, I went right in with fairing compound on top of the green glass. Filler is lighter, cheaper and easier to sand. The stitching in the biax makes great screed guides.

Thanks for the details on the sole. Did you consider Coosa board for the sole, or is the intent to keep to wood to match the expansion of the rest of the hull?

I considered foam and honeycomb but in the end it really doesn't get me anywhere. I had a big interest in honeycomb, but talked to the designer and the consensus is that by the time you add enough glass to get the same rigidity there is no weight savings in this application and as far as water intrusion and rot, it's just a matter of being conscious of what you're doing when penetrating the envelope. Keep it sealed and it will last a lifetime. Same with any boat.

Man, I'm telling you what....The God given talent of some of you folks absolutely blows me away. Seeing as I can not cut a board straight, I am envious. Incredible work.

That is one beautiful boat.

Congrats on your attention to detail, and best wishes for a speedy completion.

Can you explain the process here of adding the material to the sides?

Sure, it's really the same as planking the outside. Filled the spaces between the ribbands with rigid foam then planked with 6mm Okume plywood, faired, then glassed and troweled on a layer of fairing compound using the stitching as a screeding guide. Now the enjoyable job of fairing begins.

The choice here is to leave the ribbands exposed or add ceilings. I like the clean appearance of ceilings. It adds some weight, around 100+/- lbs for this build.

Thanks for the details. This must have really stiffened the structure up. Looks like a ton of work...

That is a great layout, and those hatch receivers turned out excellent. Very nice work.

Really beautiful build! Consider me sub'd. Takes a vision to build entirely from scratch. You and Capt John are really getting it done!
