Now I’m closing up the Hull which gives me a bit of nostalgia. I’m glad I made this Blog to keep track of my builds. 🤔🙄👍
I found that I have a little Gap in the Bow section which I’m fixing to close up.
Plane-ing the Strake from 5 mm down to 2.5 mm using my Ibex Plane. ..
I use these Clamps which allow me to stick the Strake into the hole and bend them around.
Applying the Iron to it prevents it from Cracking. I only use what works (for me) .. 🤔🙄👍
I’m just pre-bending these Filler Planks because the gap is odd. 🤔🙄😫
Closing it up is always melancholy. 🤔🙄.. For me anyway. Because after you do the Hull, you go on to a whole another Phase in the build. Which is one of the things that I love about this hobby.
I kind of screwed up and left around .5 mm Gap excess that I will have to fill so I am gluing a little 1 mm Strip that I will plane and sand down. 🤔🙄
That’s why I made these Pre-Bent Strakes to use as Fillers because I miscalculated by 2mm .. 🤔🙄😫
