Mounting blocks

Sorry for the delay, but the editing page has been unreachable in the last few days. Only one hour last saturday which we spent to fair the four laminated mounting blocks, grinding away epoxy drips and the like. We used 40 grit disks on my old trusty B&D rotoorbital sander.

Total work time to date: 379 hours

Here we are again

Happy New Year! More than one month of no activity (boatwise) due to a conference abroad, Christmas holidays and family committments... Cinzia worked just about one hour to smooth a few edges on the boat...
On Saturday we cut to size and laminated the aka supporting blocks. We used 3 layers cut from an okoume plank, 20 mm thick.
Here are the various pieces

and here are the 4 blocks, epoxy laminated

Total work time to date: 377 hours.
