We pulled out the screws and then we had to pull out the float out of the frames what was not easy because it was a little stuck with some putty to some battens. Next time I use some more packing tape. After the lift out I made the stern to the proper length, after that it fits to shortest length of the garage (one side is shorter than the other). The space is very limited now to build the last float. I have to do some small work on the stern and bow because they where not good glued together, but I do that later when the frames are gone and hull two is done. The race season is also coming so I also have to prepare Thrill Seeker, I have some small jobs to do before it gets to the harbor. So the progress on Thriller will slowdown.
Last season we had a very good result with Thrill Seeker, we did win almost every race we entered.
This week I did some small jobs to prepare for bonding the hulls together. I glued the gusseds and the cross struts so it will be essayer later when the hulls are together. Tomorrow we bond the hulls together.
To night I did fit a chain plate in the bulkhead, it was a little bit a trapeze act because the hull is hanging on the sealing but it wend well and much quicker then with my F31 because you can reach it much easier now the hulls are not glued together. I also fitted some vent joins like Nico did see joiner and vents. Still have no camera and make the pictures with the Ipad and this is not optimal.
Today we did laminate hull three, it is almost production ;-) The vacuum was perfect ones again. The trick I use to get a good vacuum is to heat the tacky tape with a heat gun after I put it on the foam, see first picture. It sticks then very good. The two week schedule is not going to continue because I have to work next Saturday and we have a meeting of our multihull club CTC
Last Sunday we laminated the inside and today I did the bulkheads and tomorrow we pull it out off the frame. I then have to turn the form frames to make the two other halves, I hope I can keep this pace, every two weeks a inside float half.
Yesterday I started at 11:00 and did finish at 23:00 with some breaks for lunch and dinner. On the end off the day I had the frame filled with foam and the seams filled with putty.
Today we did cut some carbon and other stuff for tomorrow. Afterwards I scraped the seams and filled them for the second time to get a good air tided seam.
