    I like the ladder beside the outboard. The work is progressing well.

    Scott, fir is fine too. The okume in the deck is lighter and good to paint. Fir ply not so. The inside layer of the hull is sapele ply. The choice of ply was/is up to me.  

    I’ve used fir ply as the second layer for the hull and second/third layer on the bottom & fiberglassed that. 
    I’ve been lucky to get most of the materials before the prices went up. The lycell I stumbled across…could have been airex or Dyvinicell as well. 
    The deck construction is according to the plans. I just went one size up. 1/2” ply and 5/8” foam instead of 3/8” ply + 1/2” foam.

    Thank you for posting an update, the aft deck and tiller look wonderful.

    Will you please tell me if the okume ply and lycell foam are specificed in the plans from Chris Morejohn? I thought, it seems mistakenly, that his designs were all fir, fir plywood and fiberglass. I briefly looked for okume (okoume?) marine plywood and was shocked by the cost. Lycell foam is also not an inexpensive material.

    Hi Arne. The lazarets will get epoxy and epoxy paint 

    the combings will be glassed in and get epoxy paint like the deck and the hull.

    the inside of the cabin I’ll paint with alkyd below the waterline and above with pu water based paint like sigma aqua pu. 

    Thanks for the tip.

    Very interesting, Frederik:
    How are the inside cavities (and cabin) going to be treated, just with preservative oils of some sort? I guess I would recommend installing a little air dehumidifier which can be run from time to time (and with small fans transporting dry air  to all rooms). That keeps mildew, rot and even rust away. Some of the metal things in the cabin of my Ingeborg are just (electro-) galvanized, but there are still no sign of rust after six years. I generally keep the RH below 70%.

    Keep up the good work,

    All well here in Denmark. 
    Aft deck in place (12 mm okume ply +14 mm lycell foam) and glassed. (2 layers of 450 gr. csm + 1 layer of 300 gr. cloth. 
    continuing with the rest…

    Humphrey made me a very nice tiller.

    Looks perfect for smuggling refugees, even very tall ones!

    Well done, great work.

    Done down below for now. 
    Plenty elbow room and lots of storage space for now. 
    On to the aft deck. 

    Looks perfect. Time to put it in the water and go sailing. ;)

    Well maybe not quite but it sure does look good.
