Haha..!  I do remember using Cascamite on my ever model boat build, a Sea Urchin, way back in the day...


I used Titebond 3 on my earlier Aquarama, its waterproof and I've probably just got used to it's flow, grip, drying time, what it's good at and not so good at.  It also mixes well with sawdust to bulk it as a filler.


Regards to all.

Say "Cascamite" to any builder of full size wooden boats and just watch the expression on their face!  Let's just say it is not held in the highest regard.

Stern is coming along nicely, now planked and sanded. The Proxxon belt sander is really useful...








Feels like headway being made now with the hull. Over two years into this build...

Blimey, it doesn't seem like that long ago when you started!

Quite a bit of progress made on the framework of the boat. At the stern I've got the rear hatch optimised and nicely flush with the frame that holds it in place. Cockpit area has been worked on, angled steps in front of the seats plus the panels  between cockpit and cabin are added. I've started shaping the bow frames that will define the forward deck shape, a work in progress right now. Adding filler here and there as required.




















The Belt sander is getting a workout. Working hard to ensure symmetry. I think the rear sun deck is going to get some attention from a large hole saw. It's quite heavy and doesn't need real strength.


Best regards to all..!
David.

Had a  it of time to make some more progress with the build. I've got the chine rails attached and have done more sanding and shaping then checking with planks to see how they're going to lay.



And as of today









Also been fitting the exhaust stubs through the stern, and working out how the flanges are going to be shaped. I'm using the 3D Printer to get the shape right. The Aquarama flanges seem to have 5 holes for  screws, and the flange has to attach to the pipe at around 25 degrees. So I'm printing a guide to get the holes in the right place, and another mount that's going to hold the brass flange in the lathe at the correct angle to bore out the pipes 25mm diameter...  We'll have to see if it works..!



Here with a printed flange mock up



And the tool designs





I'll report back...
Best regards to all
David.
