A question for other Easy builders. Peter wrote in his instructions that all corners must be filleted but I have not heard of anyone filleting the under side of the stringers before you roll the hulls. Has anyone done that and is it nessissary ?

Cheers, Dean

Hi Dean,
Just trying to remember what we did ...
A lot of the stringers end up being filleted by default, during the fit-out, as the structural shelves and benches are installed. Also, the underfloor areas that are fiberglassed, requires filleting to provide a radius for laying the glass.

In the areas where the stringers are exposed, we filleted the underside mostly because it looks much better.

Personly (other than the edge-mounted upper stringer) I don't think there is any structural purpose to do the undersides of the stringers, the 42mm surface area provides copious glue coverage, but other than adding a heap of time, I guess it couldn't hurt.

Hope you are well, and the build is progressing well.

Pete.

Dean
We only did small glue fillets either side of the stringer, except for stringers that were used for floors, cupboards or shelves. Additionally, we lined many visual (ie not in the cupboards) internal sides with 6mm (well resined the sealed cavities). Ensure that you keep it as clean and smooth inside as you can, cleaning up any resin runs etc as soon as they occur. It will save you hours of prep later...😤.

I thought I’d post an update. I haven’t worked on the boat for over a year and it’s driving my crazy. I finally have the money and boat barn to finish so here ya go.

Damn...that's one fine "barn". Beats the temporary shelter (aka the hot house) I've been working in. Enjoy the clean floors while you can. By the time you finish dripping epoxy, bog, paint etc etc on it, you won't recognise it from these photos.

Have fun and I hope you manage to get back into it with a vengeance.

Thanks David.
I’ve been working on the new shop sense December when I dug the foundation and then we got 2 feet of snow that lasted for 3 month. The tractor my son bought me came in very handy. It also saved me a lot of money not having to hire that piece out.
I’d like to stay in touch. Can I email you and trade pics and BS.

Thanks for the encouragement Mike. As I have said I hope to come to Ozzy land and visit some builders. Hope to see you when I come.
Happy building Dean

I am so excited to get back to work on the yacht and I’ve made progress on my boat shed. I thought I’d share with everyone.
