Marking out "Isambard" ... the build starts

Post by ianrichards » Sat Dec 30, 2017 4:02 pm

With the boiler just about complete (thanks to all forum members who helped with this) it's time to rearrange the workshop for boat building to commence.
This'll keep me busy for the next year or two !
Stage 1 will be the marking out ... a great way to start 2018

Making progress.
First ply skin now fitted and the hull is ready to invert again.
Then fit the second skin, outwall, skeg and stern gear and turn over once more.
That should keep me busy until Christmas.
The “horrible” patch is where the ply panels didn’t quite meet. This won’t be a problem as the second skin has been cut oversize ready to be trimmed back as necessary.

Ian,

Looks like she'll be a nice little seaworthy steamer, will be great for the canals there.
