    Morning all

    Started building my kavalier k800 in mid august and so far is going well. Am very much the novice builder but am getting support from the forum and a big thank you to manie b for his help. Am hoping to complete build mid 2011 all going well. Am currently putting in about 10 hours a week but am hoping to step it up to about 20 a week. Will attach photos of build and all coments will be appreciated good or bad:p Am busy with bulkheads and have done 6 of the 15 so far and all going well should have all done by dec 2009.

    cheers

    I like this design, I'll follow your build :D looking good, are you gonna place the frames on a building jig?

    I like the cat too, been sailing F18 for almost a year, and I love multihulls(well, I also love boats in general...) I would love to see some more sporty plans of a plywood cat.

    Around 4 and a half tonnes for a 40 ft cat with 80sqM of sail area is pretty powerful... Look at the design specifications in the first link of my signature...

    New K800 launched in Belarus, nice color! Keel and rig are not installed yet, they are just changing place to complete the construction.

    I love that boat. I have a question on the construction process: when you notch out the bulkheads for the stringers, how do you get the angle in the notch correct for the parts of the hull where the stringers are converging at bow and stern.

    Do you just make a square notch and epoxy it in, or is there an angle specified by the plans for each location?

    Put wooden batten prior to notching, check and mark notch angle, then go ahead.
