Is this the correct lower side panel / aft bulkhead profile?

Yup ... that's the way you do it.  The inner edge will be straight (so sliding windows will remain slider instead of 'stickers' LOL), and with the transition shelf temporarily tacked on, you'll transfer the curved shape of the lower pilot house side panels onto it so you can cut it out to fit before installing it.  It helps to have a nailer installed along the top edge of the (curved) lower pilot house side panel - no more than 1/2" thick or so.  This nailer gives you something to tack the transition shelf onto, but will also act like a batten that gives the top edge of the side panel a smooth nice looking curve.

Ok,

I made my pilot house shorter and the side panels are just under 96", so I went ahead and glassed a whole sheet of 1/4" and put on a fill coat last night. I will be able to cut the transition and lower side panels from one sheet.

Busy weekend, birthday parties, land clearing, track came off excavator...

Fixed the drawing:

Yeah,  I noticed the orientation of the nailer before and neglected to mention it.  Having in the vertical orientation will allow it to bend.  You could use 2 layers of 1/4" ply as the 'nailer' too, putting one on at a time, so that the curve would be a little more pronounced.  It's just aesthetics either way.  I like curves better than straight lines.

So the lower side panels top cut line will terminate with the cuddy side panels? not on top of the cuddy roof?


I might be a retard, brain strain sometimes.

Just think of the lower pilot house sides blending right into the cuddy side panels.  The 'shelf' discussed above is the same thickness as the cuddy roof (doesn't have to be, but is best if the top of the shelf ply aligns with the top of the cuddy roof ply so it's easy to fair in).

Not much progress since more Turkey Hunting last weekend  (Turkey won) and shrimping this Thursday thru Sunday but I did manage to get the lower sides and transition shelf glued in along with the aft cabin bulkhead.  No cloth or fillets just glued in.


When I get back from shrimping I will get back at it.

You're cracking right along and the boat's looking great!  Love the laser level ... good idea!

I cut the nailer 5 degrees bevel which made it easy to make level on top.  The only issue I have after glue up is the transition is not perfectly strait like the photos done during mock up. Maybe screwed the parts down a different order so it has a slight bow, maybe 3/16".  I think I will just add (laminate) another transition piece right on top to straiten it out and keep going.

Cracking along and neglected to glass the outer face of the aft cabin bulkhead before I glued it in.  Now I get to practice my vertical glass / epoxy ability.

Better than upside down glassing!  Did I tell you how I glued in the aft house bulkhead, top on one side of the line and the bottom on the other?  Nobody ever noticed the slight inward slope of the bulkhead ... :D

Inward slope is probably a good idea, may keep it from swinging open!

Off to the Shrimping Grounds for 4 days.  yum yum..

Yeah, that's it ... yeah, I did that on purpose!

Have fun shrimping!  It's one of the things I miss after leaving Alaska.

 I am back and making some progress slowly.   Sucks counting out 160 shrimp and pouring the rest back to the sea.  Pulled these from 2 pots:

I added a second layer of 1/4" to straighten out the transition and it will blend in better to the cuddy roof.  As you can see I could have planned better when I placed the aft cabin bulkhead and will have to be a little creative to add a threshold that I can remove to access the inspection port. 

I  love the vertical polisher with 1" soft foam pad to sand back the overhang, hold it flat when you get close and it does a nice job without damage to the glass.


Next up will be vertical glassing of the aft cabin bulkhead.
