Default 400 nitrile gloves down, Many more to go

As of today (11.18.2016) I have gone through 400 gloves, 55 gallons of epoxy, 120+ lbs of 1708, 1/4 of a roll of peel ply, 10lbs of cabosil, 30 lbs of micro spheres, I can't tell how many mixing cups and buckets, 28 sheets of okume, 6 sheets of .75 dougfir ply, a bunch of clear dougfir lumber, 4 gallons of alexseal 302, 1 gallon of alexseal 442, part of 4 gals of alexseal 202 fairing filler, 2 gals of vc performance bottom paint, a couple rolls of tape, one spray gun, some untold number of miscellaneous fasteners and a bunch of time.

All in the process of building this boat. A B and B yacht design Ocracoke 256.

It's come along a bit. This was a couple weeks ago. I've since removed the jig and I am in the process of glassing the inside.

There seems to be interest in these builds. Any interest in seeing how this one got here?

Pics & info on private custom boat builds are always very popular. You will get hit with a lot of questions though.

Very nice! Did you cut the jig and everything yourself or get the B&B kit?

I do not have the skills to do anything like this and I'm always fascinated/amazed at how talented people are.

I cut the jig myself. It was quite an undertaking and because I like precision, there was a lot of fine tuning and confirmation steps.

very cool. From what I understand, the more time you take early in the process doing that fine tuning the more time you save yourself later at the fairing stage.

Agreed. The further you go in the process the harder and more expensive it is to fix a problem. At first it's adjusting an edge, then a wire (wood) frame when it becomes 3d, then it's a surface. Harder and harder to correct because there's more material involved.

I didn't know they had released a 25. I was seriously considering doing a 20 but realized I just don't have the time. It looks awesome! Looking forward to more pics.

Here's where it all began about a year ago. I received the plans in late October. Roughed out the frames, stringers and transom in about a week in early November then never got back to it until January.
