Gluing the dagger board into dagger board cap. Used the router to cut out the slot. Leaned the board against the clamps and then used the level to set the board perpendicular to the cap.

Now that I have a better understanding of how epoxy and fiberglass work, the task for today is to go back and feather in the edges. The small specks of paint are the low spots that still need to be smoothed out. I should’ve/could’ve done this the first time around, but now I know; and without sanding down to the wood. •

Planked floor. Screws, no glue. My thought right now is that it will be easier to repair if broken. Still time to overthink that.

Monday night sanding .... feathering the edge of the glass to a smooth finish using the edge of the orbital sander. Everybody on IG says, “Keep sanding.” I think I finally understand.

A well sanded fillet designed to compensate for the learning curve of the builder ... a coat of paint and we’ll be the only ones that ever know 🤫

Probably one of the most satisfying parts of building a boat .... using a plane and sandpaper to shape wood.

Glued and screwed. Next, to plane the edges, a fillet at the forward edge, and glass and epoxy to seal the edges.

Day 12: January 15, 2018. Adding a cleat to the forward transom to help with using a fillet to attach the deck to the transom.

Day 11: January 13, 2018. Fitting the deck to the frames. (Not the 13th day building this boat 😂)

Something like that .... made a pattern to capture the shape of the deck. Picked this technique up from the “Restoring Vela” series at @totalboat. Needs more bevel on the bottom, but pretty much turned out the way I hoped. Previous “transgressions” will be dealt with as suggested by @jerseydevilsailing 😎☕️

Something like that ... framing where the mast will come through the deck. Put a bevel in now, to receive the decking, so I won’t have to do it later.

Day 3: Compound miter cut for the deck frame. Matches the curve of the gunwale and the angle of the side.

Move over O'Brien. I feel inspired to write the next great generational novel. Ah, OK. Never mind. I'll do it later. #cats #ginger #writers #writing #novels #inspiration #warmth #computers #keyboards #reality #thwarts #creativity

Progress on the mast step .... Day 3 .... this is why boats are never finished .... and the rat😂 ... my mortises require more practice.
