Featured Bristol 40s WoodWorking Boat Projects Runabout

Runabout Precutting Lumber

2008.06.01

It was a very productive weekend. Got the marine ply for the transom. Got the boards for the seats. In addition, bought materials to make a light duty work bench for the garage. This will mostly fill in as a work space between two shelving units left by the previous tenant.

Got all boards and transom pieces pre-cut to rough sizes and router work done where appropriate.

Best of all, I got to spend a perfect day with my son. Temps 72 with a light breeze and sunny. After we finished the woodwork, we spent an hour out on the lawn in the Adirondack Chairs we made together on a visit years ago. Sittin' in the shade, watching the world go by. It was nice.

So, bright and early this morning, I got up to do laundry as I do on Sundays and begin my day's labor. First task on the list was building my little work bench I will need for all the glass work on the runabout.

After that, I got the sander out and started working on the red Paint. There were still a few places I wanted to touch up and ensure they wouldn't pass imperfections to the next layer of paint. The further I got into it, the more obvious it became that I needed to take all the red paint off. In the process, I took off 90% of the gray primer, ending up on the dark red gelcoat for the most part. Boy those Random Orbitals can make some dust. It only took about 2 hrs to generate all the dust in the pics.

At some point, I went into the apartment and brought out the fan I had bought to help me delay turning on the AC. I'll have to get another fan, because that one is toast as far as using it inside goes...
