2016.12.24 - Smoothing the Way Forward

Only a short burst of work this afternoon. I wanted to start marking out the position of the fore hatch but in order to do this I needed to locate the correct edges of the coachroof as it currently still hung over the cabin sides. I could have used a gauge to do this but since I have to trim the edges at some point I decided that some point was now.


The front.


The starboard side.


And the port side.

This was quite hard work with a heavy power plane and then the heavy belt sander and although I could have done more my eyes, nose and mouth all felt full of wood dust, so I stopped here. Time to wash out and off all the dust from the sanding.
