Marking All The Bulkheads

Posted by Paul

Today I marked all but 2 of the bulkheads I didnt finish on Saturday, I just have bulkhead 5 for each hull to go. I filed down the tabs as I went and found that if you hold the file down with just one hand with leather gardening gloves on you can take off the high spots and you will feel when the file starts to file past level, remember it is only balsa and 2 one millimetre layers of fibreglass so it comes off fairly easily. When the file starts to work on the whole length of your stroke you are done.

I didn’t get any work done yesterday, I went for a sail on a small mono on Lake Macquarie, I enjoyed it but who likes heeling! Give me level sailing any day.
