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.
Paint is on the Hull
I have primer for wood that is needed to prep the surface for the top side paint￼.
I like how tough it seems. I trimmed out a hollow section where the fabric paunches off the wood and it is super tough.
The three Keel planks and the Gar planks are done in two sessions.
Here is the fabric ready to start.
Pictures showing the resulting copper wire ends.
Using a small piece of the boat’s plywood try glassing and painting.
First Test how well the fabric and resin conform and adhere.
Rounding plank edges for Glassing.
Does it Again! It is trimming the hull steps and cutting right through the copper wire. I’m smoothing the transitions for glassing.
I have decided to overlap across the seams. This needs to be tested.

Filled with anger
No way home
A combination of rounding the board edges and filling the angles remaining
Piece by piece design:
As each layer/component of the composite is refaced it is measured and recorded. These models have mapped appearances close to the real look.
A virtual build of the pre-shaped composite is modeled. Then shaping is performed in stages similar to the real hand production.
Then rounding and blending is applied, again like the real work. A transformation video will be made using both virtual and real photos and live video.
Using a block and tackle we were able to flip the Pram over onto sawhorses
Now to trim the wires and fare the hull
Also time to trim the ends of the planks to the bow and stern bulkheads
The edges of the planks need to be rounded to allow good material bonding
Pumping the water in.
Air bubbles are trapped.
Submerge Wheel to let air out
Submerge whole pump and wheel to fill
One pushes on the bow. Down.
This will lift the stern. She will spin then. Boat Wheel glide nicely.
Pictures to follow
What would the effect of asymmetry on the FW be?
Would it make an irregular motion pattern that would aid in the persistence?
