Our week in review: CAD drawing, hardware sourcing, workspace set up.
Although this was another 'full on' week of part time boat building, or preparation for it, it was one of those weeks where you look back at what you have done and realise that there is not much physical to show for it.
I spent quite a bit of time talking on the phone and sending emails regarding hatches. I found a great local company that not only has a standard line of deck hatches but they also produce custom sized options as well. In particular I was looking for something to use as a door for the water tight bulkhead D1. Cule Marine Ltd was able to offer two rectangular hatch options that would be great for this purpose. With cutout sizes of either 500mm x 700mm or 500mm x 850mm, getting in and out of this space just got easier!
I continue with building a 3D model of our Class Globe 5.80. For a whole host of reasons, this is a very important asset moving forward.
Workspace set up.
We did a little bit of work in the shed but not as much as we had liked. Still, paint is being applied to walls and beams, trim moulding is being made and some other small jobs are being taken care of. All good!
