Hi...it seems to have been a long time
since I sent you an update on my Navigator
project, so please find attached some new photos etc...
Progress has been made but slower then
I would wish due to being very busy everywhere except
the garage worksite.
As you can see the bulkheads 8,7 &
6 have been screwed/glued into place along with seatfronts.
The centercase has been completed and screwed together
so as to try for accuracy and fit so that I can trim/plane
if needed... IT DOESN'T!!! It's made to plan and fits
1st time PERFECTLY! I am very happy about that.
I shall now undo the screws and apply
the Epoxy glue before rescrewing it together again.
Instead of 4 bolts for the centercase I got a piece
of threaded Stainless Steel rod which I have cut to
the right length and shall tighten SS nuts/washers
against each side.
The Engineering place where I got the
SS rod suggested 3/8th galvanized steel for the centerboard
which he will shape to suit but I haven't got the
price for this yet so decided to leave this for later
in the build.
That's all for now
