Building ‘Sharpy’ Part 76

Steering lines pipes fitted

Steering lines pipes exits

I hardly spent any time on the boat today – just a short back and sides. I simply trimmed the ends of the steering line pipes, both inside and outside the hull and I finished by hoovering up the trimmings.

Maybe tomorrow I’ll get around to installing the mainsheet tube and making and fixing brackets for four lifting handles. After that, little will be required other than scoring the surfaces that will come into contact with the deck panels. Finally it will be a case of painting the interior before adding the decks. They will require a few internal fittings, such as the attachment for the keel wire purchase and backing pieces for the butt joints, and the mainsheet exit port.
