Taping the inside of gennaker winch base

I stopt a little early from work to do some work on the gennaker base. I taped the inside before I put some other panels to the base next time

Starting with the gennaker winch base

Friday I made in the morning a part of the gennaker winch base. I made this piece in a bucket and cut it in two. In the afternoon I went to the south so do some racing on a F9R Trinamiet from a friend. The racing did go very well, we scored to two victories and won the overall trophy.
This was the last race for this year so I get some more time for building again.

taping the backrest and the bunk

Friday I taped the backrest and from the other bunk the front edge. In the afternoon we did go to Thrill Seeker to go sailing to a port nearby to do some races on Saturday and Sunday. The results can be found here. We were very lucky with weather so after the races we held a campfire and bbq.  Next weekend I am invited to race on another F9 so progress is not that big, I can only do some work on Friday.

making the backrest and coamings

Friday I started with the backrest, this did take some time to find out where exactly I had to put it. I also place the first coaming pieces. I had to quit early because I had to work in the evening at my work and Fetske was going to the Gunboat factory with our CTC club. She took the camera so I could not place pictures. Unfortunately Fetske was not allowed to make picture of the Gunboat G4. Yesterday we had a race from our harbor so no building. Today I placed the second piece of the backrest and put the large underside bunk panel in place. I put some putty on the edges of the accu access hole and I put some putty, foam and carbon in a bucket to make some round pieces for the coamings where the winches will be put on.

accu access hole

After visiting the HISWA boat show I came to the conclusion that the hole to access the accu's was to small. I have now put the square Amstrong access hole in place. Last weekend we did race with Thrill Seeker so not so much progress. the pictures and video of the race can be see here.
