    That’s probably shore power. I have same, and on the other side similar for solar panel connection.

    This thread is acting strange. It says last update was by Chrisk, but nothing there and just links to log-in. Hmm, anyway, thats why I am refreshing with this post. Cheers!

    Chris, sure, if we keep distance. My schedule wide open.

    If anyone is concerned with mixing the stainless with brass, know that they are close to each other on the galvanic series, and would only corrode if there was substantially more stainless (more noble) than brass, which is not the case here.

    No glass. But to prevent galley flat separation I would add glass tape where the bulkhead meets the galley flat, both inside and in the galley.

    Maybe cutting thin okume strips with a beveled edge, and gluing them over the scar would look better than a wood filler patch.

    There are still a few available camping spots available of today. (FORT Townsend, not Port Townsend is the name of the park for anyone else interested).  I will see if dreamboat is up for it tonight.

    A few years ago I was in the beer garden at this event. When we left I saw the CLC trailer and immediately said yep, I gotta have one, and sealed the deal. The next morning, sober, I sat bolt upright and bed and thought, “oh man , what have I gotten myself into”.

    It is a long process with solo many steps. Just plug along and eat that elephant one bite at a time. You will be rewarded and encouraged at the big milestones .

    Don’t fret too much about minor imperfections. As Mike said, most can be fixed.  Yeah, you will always notice that hole you drilled through/plywood sand through/fillet bubble or whatever. No one else will and after you enjoy it on a few trips you won’t care about it either.

    No need to think of every little thing at once. You will modify and add things in the years to come.

    Make your workspace floor somewhat level. If it is off kilter, everything else will be in the end.

    That first epoxy and flies job? Just get through it and learn and don’t overwork it. It won’t show in the completed project and trust me, you will be a pro at that in the end where it counts and the process will be second nature.

    I measured my epoxy by weight rather than by pumps. The weight ratios are on the epoxy manufacturers web site, and I keep a 3×5 card with several batch size ratios listed. Super quick and only requires a cheap kitchen scale. Much more accurate. Cover that scale with a plastic bag though.

    I may not be back in town until 9th of July. Probably sooner, like the 7th, but can’t be sure.

    I’m in olympia. I’m home more often than on the road and usually available.

    Sorry to hear. At least your username fits.

    As I am out and about in the PNW with my trailer I will keep you in mind as there are always plenty of people asking about the source of plans and material.

    Later in the summer is the wooden boat show in Pt Townsend and CLC is usually there. Not sure how you could ethically use that to your advantage but their trailer always draws a huge crowd.
