Making shelfs and laminating the anchor well

 Yesterday we laminated the wooden shelfs with some glas and place them in a vacuum bac, with lack of tacky tape I used duc tape to seal the bac.  

Today we laminated the anchor well and made some plates for under some kicker on the mast. and afterwards we drove to IJmuiden to see the finished sea lock, made a picture of the old big one and the new one (500m long, 70m wide).

How the anchorwell wil look with the Spade A80

 Today I trimmed the drainhole in the anchorwell (no picture) and cut some carbon but we did not have enough epoxy to laminate that so stopt with the ankerwell.
We then spend te rest of the time with triplex shelf for the kitchen locker. The triplex is now in the right shape and only has to get a light laminate what we do at home.

I made a picture of the anchor in the new space, you can see also the cut dry carbon.

Glued the bottom on the anchorwell

Today we glued the bottom to the anchorwell but first we had to make it fit and rounded the edges.
I also drilled a hole in the bulkhead to fit a PVC pipe to drain the lower point of the anchorwell.

After the bottom was done we started with a shelf in the front locker and a shelf for the kitchen locker.
They are made from thin triplex and get a thin layer laminate.

Glued the sides of the anchor locker in place

 Today we glued the sides of the deeper section of the anchor locker in place. I fixed the panels with some  screws so they stay emplace during the hardening of the epoxy. The bottom will be placed next weekend and hope to laminate the also the corners and the blank foam.
