The windows are in!  Today @koenigskind91 and I cut and glued the windows of the cockpit dodger.  Just remove the foil and we are finished with this construction site!  There is simply no more beautiful feeling than the certainty that it is going ahead!  That you have come one step closer to your goal.  I hope your weekend was similarly successful 😊 Have a nice sunday evening!

After the intensive period to get the veneers finished, I’ve been taking it a lot easier over the last couple of weeks!
.
I decided to machine sand the veneers now - to reduce how much I have to do next April/May when the weather warms up again. This is just the first pass (with a Festool Rotex RO150 and 40-grit sanding discs) and I will later go over the hull with a long bed machine sander, before finally finishing off long-boarding by hand. The machine sanding just takes off any excess epoxy and most of the high spots so that I have a lot less to do by hand later.
.
The time-lapse (photo 3) shows about half an hour’s work in a few seconds!
.
I wasted a few days having to fix the cover for the tent after I made the mistake of leaving the zip partially open for access during a storm. A squall came along and ripped the zip apart and I ended up having to replace a section of the cover and install a new zip for access!
.
I’ve finished machine sanding the starboard side - apart from the keel area, which I will leave for later as this area could get wet on some of the big tides over the winter months.
.
I need to do the same on the port side now (I’ve already done about a third of the boat from the bow).

Frame stock in the water to soak before steaming.  One bundle actually sank, glad we had it tied off well! #woodenboat #woodenboatsarebetter #bristolmarine #boatrestoration #steambending #whiteoakframes

We get asked a lot about our Pour Foam. It is a two part liquid that when mixed together at a 1-1 ratio expands into a closed cell foam. We stock 2# and 4# densities, the 4# is required for foaming in gas tanks. A 2# gallon kit expands to roughly 9 cubic feet!! 😱

Making somme material tests:
- Two pieces of 3cm XPS foam glued in 90° angle with 2 layers of biaxial 400gr and epoxy.
- After cures, flip upside down and put 96 kg (my weight) on top. 
Results: it doesnt break!.. 🤔😁⚓ #boatrestoration #boatbuilding #epoxyresin

We did it!  The cockpit dodger is finished and painted white, only the windows have to be confirmed and installed.  Finally it's done!  Of course everything took much longer than planned.  Especially the endless grinding to the back corners, of which there are a lot, has cost nerves.  Never mind!  Now CÖLNISCH has a pretty unique dodger...Pretty or not, what do you think?😉🙄😊

Bug progresses on our GW-Invader. Stern section is back on and the inside is all glasses. Transom is reconstructed. Floor is in and glassed. Some cosmetics now and we start working on the paintjob.

Toe rail replacement on an Alerion 28. Water had found its way into the hull-deck joint and up the screws into the teak. All sealed up. And the boatyard gave me a great parking space! @brownsboatyard #alerion #alerionyachts #alerion28 #teak #sachemsheadyachtclub #boatrestoration #guilfordct
Sabre restoration finally complete and out for its first sail (yes the downhaul needs some adjustment). From a boat that hadn’t been on the water for 10 years and needed a new rudder and thwart as well as all hull fixings replaced, she looks pretty good (and her owner is pleased with his first proper grown up boat too!) #sabresailing #youthsailing #boatrestoration #woodenboat #woodworking

There are 2 types of sponge rubber, closed cell and open cell. EPDM rubber seals are typically closed cell sponge rubber. These seals are flexible, weather and UV resistant and can withstand pressure for long periods of time without losing their shape. ­­#boatrepair #boatrestoration #boatbuilding #boatlifestyle #boatinglife #boatlife #boatrenovation #boatrefit #boatrescue #boatbuild #steelerubbermarine
Over 60 man hours of work put in, in just two days on this 2008 Sea Ray 260 Sundancer. At over 1,000 hours on this boat it was time to bring it back to life and that's what we did. With minimal sanding we were able the restore the exterior of this monster to like new while preserving the gelcoat. Next we coated it with Feynlab's Hydro coating to protect it from both fresh and salt water for up to 5 years.

Tag us with a picture of your boat and how many hours you have on it... We will let you know if there is anything to be done to keep it looking new.

The mold for the Glastron Carlson C500 windscreen is more or less ready. Some cleanup and sanding and we can fire up the oven

In preparation for a full paint respray, there were repairs to be done. Hull blister surface cracks to cabin side and dynal cracks on flybridge to be attended to firstly, then ready for the respray by All Spray Marine. Great job done by all.

My self-made furling system.  A new one would cost more than the whole boat 😂 
My lovely lady CÖLNISCH has two foresails, a normal jib and a large genoa.  Both foresails are attached classically with jib hanks on the respective forestay.  It is not possible to reef the foresails by rolling them in, which is standard nowadays.  At least for the normal jib I will install this self-made furling system.  Roughly speaking, it consists of the rope drum, a shroud tensioner and two large swivels.  The sail is attached to the bottom of the drum and wrapped around the forestay.  I am very excited to see how well it works in practice!  Extensive tests in spring off the Dutch coast will show it 😉

‘Our Lizie’ launched today at the IBTC, Lowestoft, looking absolutely gorgeous! Well done all involved, many many hours of efforts to get her looking so great.

Lower part of the mold is ready. Stand and reinforcement is integrated in the mold. Tomorrow the top part and then we heat up the oven.
