Stuffing box came today. Then I started looking at the keel and noticed that the rudder would have to be built and installed prior to glueing the keel to the formers. So to fix that I cut the bottom of the keel and made a removable shoe like the Midwest lobster boat.
The stuffing box is glued in with Hysol and drying. As soon as thats dry, I'll mix up a little bondo and fill the groove in.

That's what I'm talking about.
Then I could use the regulator to dial down the voltage for the brightness. I think?
Yes you can. The easy way with one of these

The rear half of the hull is sheeted. The rear half is glassed inside with 3oz glass and Z-Poxy and the oil/grease tube is installed.

Now on to the front half.

One side of the hull finished, or at least sheeted.

Here is what I done with the cabin tops. All held on with earth magnets.

That cabin profile looks really good with that hull design.  Looks like "they were made for each other" LOL

Before I closed up the hull I added a 1/4" thick block at the bow. This will let me attach the rigging to the net booms.

I finished sheeting the hull this morning and filled the seam lines.

Wayne,

It would be a good idea to coat all the Luan with thinned epoxy so it will soak in.  The glue used on it is interior grade and therefore not waterproof.  I don't know if you are going to treat the forward part of the hull like you did the aft section or not but when/if you do be sure to cover all of the Luan.  Moisture can seep in just from the air and cause problems so it needs to be sealed.

OK Guys, time to put on the thinking caps and shoot some idea's this way.
I'm trying to come up with a few ideas about how to raise the net booms up and down. I'm way out of my league here.
So far I have two,
One is using a sail servo, but I'm not sure if it has enough travel.
Second, I'm thinking about a continious rotation servo with some sort of drum to hold the kevlar line.
Pros and Cons anyone.

Have you seen these winches?  They seem to get great reviews.  Not sure if they hold enough line for your needs. 



1/10 scale size
http://www.rpphobby.com/product_p/3racr01-27.htm

Same 1/10th scale winch as above but the same supplier as the 1/8th below it

1/8th scale size.

The video gives you a good sense of the speed

This one shows you how to change the line.

Can the servo be stopped at any point by the use of a control stick or knob on the transmitter?
