|The good stuff|
Can I lay out two sheet end-to-end as required for the side panels and the bottom? Just barely:
|Typical bachelor behavior|
I can't loft the big pieces yet because I don't have a fairing batten long enough yet. But I did lay out the patterns on one sheet last night: the transom, front seat and two bulkheads. At this point I must state for the record that while I think Michael Storer is a brilliant designer and overall nice guy, his method for marking out the parts is BONKERS. There. I got it off my chest. I'm smart enough to understand how to get where he wants me to go, but I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have done it this way myself. My goal is to loft a sheet per night for four nights (including the two double sheets) and then cut them all out. But I do need a batten...
Oh yeah, and I need more lumber so I can frame the parts up. If all goes well, I can go 3-D when the family returns. I really do want the kids to have a hand in this build, I swear...
