After spending last weekend in the most perfect weather sunning myself in Key Largo, I spent this weekend locked in the shop due to heavy storms. While the rain came down I continued to work on the frames for the pathfinder. I have been working on the frames one at a time – laying out the shape, cutting the plywood, fitting and gluing the stringers and doublers. I usually only have one full day by myself to work in the shop, and an hour or two after work and weekends; often I would not have time to get anything done so I would not start anything at all. My game plan today was to get all of the frames cut out, notched, beveled, and such so that every evening I could come home and build up one frame completely. 10 hours of work later I have everything ready to go. Just for fun I set up the frames in their approximate location so I could finally see how big the boat really is. I will admit I put Jimmy Buffet on the XM and moved my work stool in to the “Captains Chair” just to try it out. I am starting to like rainy days!
