Going 3D

We started at about 9am sanding down Butt splices. Here is the initial setup.


Smoothing Butt Splices.


Here is how I carry the 17′ spliced sides.side-carry.jpg

This shows how I held the Sides so I could install the first Bulkhead by myself.

It was my intention to do all this by myself, and I believe I could have done it, though with much more time taken. Sean showed up and helped me get done more quickly.

I took 46 fotos of the process; and there is a web album for those who have not had enough here;

Not too bad for four hours!
