March: Building a Cold-Molded Custom Designed 20 Foot Catboat

Early March 2013: Update
We are installing an inboard, most probably an electric Mastervolt, so there’s all that to factor in the equation.
The skeg needs to be shaped to accommodate the prop and shaft. More putty is applied. Later in the month, the crew is ready to tab the skeg, fair (again) and sheath the entire hull. There’s a lot of talk about following the Landing School approach to fairing post-sheathing so I am on the phone researching the process and debating if that’s the route we should take.

Sheathing goes pretty quickly in spite of the on-going debate about the final fairing process. We used 10 oz cloth over 1708 Biaxial set in West System epoxy. These photos were taken on March 14, 2013.
