Hey Bob
I use a bandsaw saw now,but still do some of it by hand :D



I can only dream of having proper tools for the job atm im stuck with a scoring knife and a jigsaw but the big bandsaw at work is ok if it decides to let us work on it (i have to say it it like some of the older members of boat clubs. Very temperamental)

 And some more pics LOL
Finished trimming the new front bulkhead after changing the design of the front
Cut the first piece for the top of the nose,gotta make another couple moving further forward to support and add some strength in the nose,im going to add a slight curve top to the nose aswell.





I will remove the piece between the 2 once iv finished as this is where the fuel tank will sit

Hi Daz, kindly remember, that once the dam  and main lake repairs are completed, it could take  quite some time for the lake to refill, [anything up to 2-3 years] then, CMBC still have to negotiate with the sailing club for permisssion, its not a foregone conclusion it will be granted yet, so its good you dont have all your eggs in one basket !

Now for CG adjustments and fixing the mounts.
Iv just brought 16 of these little pieces,im gonna work out the CG and have 4 different placments allowing easier adjustment,im also gonna put some epoxy on them the use some fibreglass cloth and epoxy to hold them in place,the 1 not being used will have some push in seals so should any water get in it wont fill the cavity up.
