Early days on the Rodney
The Rodney is now mounted on a "working board", sitting on 2 shiny pedestals (many thanks to John H.), with (2) 4" counter-sunk bolts and nuts. The hex heads were tapped into 2 small blocks of pine, and epoxied both inside and out.... and the pine blocks epoxied to the inside of the hull.
The wooden deck overlay has been attached using the "water treatment I mentioned at the last meeting, and the 4 pieces went on very smoothly. The deck has not been attached to the hull yet, I prefer to work on a flat surface with it, cutting and attaching the small pieces.
