Before our last two bulkheads go in, we need to make sure they sit in their EXACT place, as there is no margin of error.

Because the large transom piece we received with our second container sits as a cap over these two bulkheads, we need to make sure each edge is lining up. But because this piece is 24 ft wide and weighs over 500 pounds, it’s not easy to bring it in and out for a dry fit. So, we’re going to do our best with measurements between the two and hope for the best.

As we go to glass in bulkead 8 though, we find that our new vinyl ester resin is not behaving well in these summer temperatures, and is making it very hard for us to work. A slight set-back, but we know we’ll find a way around it to make everything work.

We hope you enjoy!
