Working Away

August 31, 2015  Hours spent building to date:  1,363

A short week due to the trip to Ohio to deliver John to school and a long weekend in beautiful Westport, MA to visit wonderful old friends, Angie and Alan Scott.

Nevertheless, a few thing got done:

— Bonded in the cockpit sides for a watertight fit.

— Second coat of paint on the tank spaces.

— Finally got the starboard sheer clamp square and vertical.

— With the clamp vertical, patterned the starboard forecabin side.  Looking good.  I’m going to tack patterns on both sides so I can decide how much to bend the beam shelf to take out the flat spot caused because there is no frame in this area.

— Ordered all the tanks after hours of measuring and head scratching.

You have no idea what a pain this is!

Forecabin pattern -- pretty tight fit.

    That’s a big bottle of ice tea John is grasping onto, right????? Tardis looks great, how many gallons of fuel and water will she hold?

    Yes, it is a special iced tea brewed in Kentucky.

    70 gals fuel, 45 gals water, 30 gals waste, 1 gal iced tea.
