    K-19 hull turned

    I finished priming the hull and finished the bottom paint and the waterline stripe. We turned the hull over on 06-19-05. I built a frame around it prior to turning so we could handle the boat by the frame. The turning was uneventful.

    Hopefully the inside shouldn't take too long to clean up.

    bulkheads glassed in

    I've managed to get the inside glassed. I glued in the sheer clamps and 4 of the 5 bulkheads. I still have the following tasks left to do:

    1) fabricate and install the daggerboard case
    2) install the main bulkhead
    3) fabricate and install the mast platform
    4) install the cockpit framing
    5) install the transom
    6) install the deck
    7) paint the deck and topsides
    8) install the deck hardware

    I plan to have the deck installed by the end of October and be ready for launch in the spring. I started fabrication at the end of Jan 05, so it looks like ~ 1 year of spare time. I actually wasn't able to work on it much this summer because of the heat and humidity in Cincinnati.

    Another friendly bump, since we were on the very bottom of the page.

    If you were asking me, I'm building a handybilly at the moment, with a few other ideas on the plate for the next project. I primed the hb exterior last night and will flip her tomorrow, physics and my lower back willing.

    I have plans for the k19 and k23. While they are wildly impractical for me at the moment, I still enjoy the thought of building them someday. I like the idea of a performance boat that is forgiving enough to stay under the radar of the sailinganarchy types.

    Slowly finishing K19

    I've got the cockpit sole and sides glued in. They're trimmed to the transom. I'm going to wait until the deck is installed to fiberglass the outside of the cockpit and transom.

    The side decks are screwed in place temporarily and trimmed to fit. The foredeck scarf is cut and glued. The scarfs between the foredeck and side decks are cut. The foredeck is screwed in place temporarily. I need to trim it and then remove it to cut the radii in where the side decks meet the foredeck at the main bulkhead.

    I still need to seal the underside of the deck, but then I can glue the deck on.

    so far, so good.

    Renewed Faith

    I just recently found the boat design forums, and was very excited to see other people building the K-19. I bought the plans while I was still in school and quickly realized this was an after graduation project.The Harken hardware conversion list renewed my interest in plans I have had for a year now. Only two problems remain. Where did you find 1/2" bead and cove strips?(How many and what lengths did you use?) And finally sails, the source list in the plans have so far been very little help. Any tips you could share would be greatly appreciated.
