Deck Framing

Filed under: Building - After Flipping — tomlarkin @ 2:27 pm

These are out of chronological order – I misplaced the pictures.

The deck framing is three layers of hemlock 1 x 4’s laminated. The diagonal parts were lapped onto the first layer of the fore-and-aft stringer and glued together so the whole frame is bonded together. It made for lots of small pieces to fit together but it feels very strong. This will be the foundation of the house sides, so I wanted a strong, rigid framework. The pilothouse deck that the stool is on is temporary, but at the correct height.

Notched, lapped, screwed, and glued for strength.I cut away most of this bulkhead – you can see the cutout in the picture above. The foot of the pilot bed goes through here to the bow.

Bulkhead glass

Glassing the bulkheads. Four layers on each joint – three layers of biax and a layer of tooling cloth for protection.
