horschtl Posted April 11, 2019 Share #1 Posted April 11, 2019 Well, as threatened in my introduction i will post my first building log. First picture is taken several hours past the beginning. I removed the bulkheads from the frame with a scalpel nr.3. This was easy and only a little filing was needed at the connecting points, because the thin scalpel cut very accurate. One little error in the provided laminated wood was that it was delaminated at one point of the frame. Two parts were affected. The deck in the aft and one base of the thwarts were affected. The deck could be repaired by putting some white glue on a toothpick and distribute it inside. As that base of the thwarts is only 7 mm wide it cracked even more in the process. I repaired it with a splint about half as wide as the base so it should not be visible. The fit of the bulkheads was pretty good out of the box. After dry-fitting, I saw that deck was slightly too long at the aft, but it took only a little sanding. The first frame and the last frame needed a little adjustment to be in one plane with the rest. I discovered this only after fitting the base of the thwarts in addition to frames and deck. After everything seemed to fit squarely, I glued it together.
