"Martinac. The Dutchmen after some sanding and another application of Smith’s Clear Penetrating Epoxy Sealer. They turned out well. I still have to fill the screw holes left from clamping. Next I’ll work on the backer boards that go on…"

"Martinac. To hold the Dutchmen in place while the epoxy cures, I screwed down overlapping pieces of 1/4-inch plywood. I put some West 403 filler in the epoxy as a thickener. And I put a couple layers of wax paper between the hull and clamping wood.…"

"Martinac. Plan B. I originally thought I fill the old scarfs with fiberglass and epoxy. I tried one and it didn’t go well so I abandoned that plan. Instead I’m installing proper Dutchmen repairs. Once again I routered the scarfs, but…"

"Martinac. I saturated the wood inside and out with Smith’s Clear Penetrating Epoxy Sealer. Then I taped from the inside and applied epoxy filler from the outside. These are preparations for the fiberglass. And I started working on support…"

"Martinac. I suspect that this boat has only been painted twice. Once when new and once God only knows when. I see evidence of two waterline stripes and three coats of bottom paint. But I suspect the first coat of bottom paint was a primer coat. A 63…"

"Martinac. This section of the bow has some old repairs. I’m well on the port side now. I sanded the outside of the hull to expose the repairs. Then I used a plunge router to remove the old filling materials. Then I removed the old backer…"

"Martinac. The side-to-side frames are called athwart frames. Just learned that today. This photograph shows a knee between the bottom and side frame. The top of the knee will support the deck level. Every knee is different. "

"Martinac. I changed up the engine stringers. The new engine stringers are Sapele. 2 inches by 6 inches by 11 feet. They span eight of the side-to-side frames. The horizontal distance between the engine stringers is 20.5 inches. They will be recessed…"
