This has been a long process of, hurry up… and wait… and wait… and wait… I flipped the boat over in order to install the interior wall support beams and get the boat ready for the installation of the top decks. Things are taking a lot longer than expected as I need to wait for everything to cure before moving on.
In the meantime, have created a new site for Row4aCure to provide those without Facebook an easy way to see the progress and receive updates. You can see the new site at http://www.row4acure.com. Let me know what you think.
Tomorrow, I will complete the interior of the boat and adhere the top decks. I don’t think I will have time to fiberglass the top, but I will get everything ready to start this on Monday night. Then, while I am waiting for the fiberglass to cure, I will start building the rowing seat and oar outriggers, I need to have these ready and installed before I can paint.
Once all that is completed, I need to give the boat a very thorough sanding, and it will be ready for painting. Unfortunately, I need to wait for two weeks before I can apply the actual paint…!!! Much longer than I originally thought. However, I can use the boat in the meantime while the epoxy cures. Sooner the better as I need to get on the water and training with the actual boat.
