July 17, 2016  Hours spent building to date:  2,697

2016 Shane's Team

Work on the Tardis has been severely restricted by building three kayak kits and four solid days of boatbuilding at the Connecticut River Museum Boatbuilding Workshop.  But it was fun as usual, and this year’s boat, the Cappy 15 kayak, is a real winner.   I hope I can help designer Dave Hemenway make it a staple of the community boatbuilding fleet.

To help recover from the Workshop, I have been concentrating on sanding, filling and adding to trim rather than starting anything big.  That doesn’t make really great pictures, since a piece of rough trim looks pretty much like a piece of trim sanded to 220 grit.

Also, although I like the size and location of the refrigerator a lot, every time I looked into the boat I saw a big black plastic blob dominating the interior.  So I found some cherry laminate at Defender Industries at a good price that looks a lot better.

Next up is bringing the forward deck and cockpit well all the way to final paint so John can help me get the butterfly hatch hoisted onto the boat.  I will also be fighting dust from here on in as finishing starts, and a painted surface is a lot easier to keep clean.

More trim pieces going on.

Cockpit combings are in, and with a caprail should look very sharp.
