Lots of stuff working now.

Pram Floor Bed System

Watts Pram Floor becomes camper design idea. Floorboards are latched into place on the floor. When time to camp these floorboards detach and reattach to fill between the seats making a bed. Cushions on the seats backs move to make the bed whole. Also the floor can have knee cushions as part of the puzzle.

As part of his camper system heavy sail cloth can serve as both a cover and a tent roof. Flaps tucked up when a cover can rotate down to make the tent sides and Velcro or magnet to boat’s sheer.

New Shop

The new work shop is getting better.

There are lots more cheesy power tools. I feel at home some how.

Like Shark Skin

In Fluidics there’s a complex observation, smooth boat hulls (in laminar flow) experience laminar cohesion.

This slows the forward motion- rough surfaces do not experience this, their dynamic is more complex, a set of “eddies” swirl about the hull improving flow by reducing cohesion.

Must Prime Oak Keels and Skeg

I have primer for wood that is needed to prep the surface for the top side paint.

Glassing Done


This Glassing is Something

I like how tough it seems. I trimmed out a hollow section where the fabric paunches off the wood and it is super tough.

Keel and Gar

The three Keel planks and the Gar planks are done in two sessions.

Here is the fabric ready to start.

Nearly All Sanded
