Waanderlust Project--Phase II | Friday, May 27, 2011

A brief test-fit of the new engine foundations showed a need (not unexpected) to fine-tune the shape of the angled bottom cut a bit, mainly to add a bit of curvature to allow it to clear the shape of the hull better.  The pieces basically fit properly, but I couldn't push them quite as far outboard as they needed to go because of these minor clearance issues.

However, I left this for another time, as my main goal on this day was to complete the work on the deadlight frames. Now that the frames had had plenty of time in the clamps, I removed the clamps and sanded the faces of the frames to remove excess epoxy and also to remove the original layout lines.  Then, with a clean surface, I reapplied the template and traced its inner and outer edges onto the work piece, after which I cut out the shapes with a jig saw.


After smoothing the cut edges with a sander, I milled a 1/2" rounded profile on both the inside and outside edges, then sanded the four frames smooth and clean through 220 grit paper.



Finally, I completed the work on the fuel tank support platform by washing and sanding the new tabbing as needed.
