fitting the forward bulkhead

As suggested in the plans, the bulkheads can be fitted against foam strips rather than just blopping them in with putty ( epoxy / micro / aero ). Farrier says that this is better but takes more time........a farmer was holding his pig up in the air under an apple tree so he could eat. a catamaran builder walked up and said: " that sure is a waste of time". The farmer said: " time dont mean nothin to a pig"...............I think there may be a time when I'm off the coast of Africa in a storm and wishing I had glassed the bulkheads in the best I could have. So thinking that, I don't really have a choice.

Next, I'll show a picture of the finished double glass tape and epoxy bulkhead join detail.  Posted by Picasa

the real moral of the story is that time don't mean nuthin to a farmer either, or to anyone building a 44 foot catamaran after he gets home from work...

also, it's wise to realize that when s!@*t happens while your out in the middle of the south atlantic, you can't really walk home.
