Another Planning Session…

*text* “i know its last minute… but… how about swinging by on the way home to review the plans, Ron’s coming…” Bob Davis

I made my way home for a quick dinner and off to Bob’s house for a plan review.  We pulled out the full size patterns which are water soluble  (notice there is no liquid in those pint glasses) which need to be well protected in British Columbia AKA the Wet Coast…

Having a closer full size review

It was really cool to lay out the main hull patterns and visualize how it will be.  Standing with toes to main hull, it was like you were lying down in the Vberth.  We layed out all the plans, matching as we went, it was a great time discussing & generating our strategies as we went:

We reviewed the material lists, estimated the initial start up budgets on initial pricing, purchased the DXF files, arranged for laser/jet cutting, organized the strong back materials schedule (identified housekeeping etc.) and proceeded to make estimates on milestones such as hull completion and called it a night.

I expect to receive the DXF files over the coming days, once they have arrived we will be making the necessary arrangements for a trip to get the MDF/materials to begin the forms C&C and subsequent strongback construction prepping for the vertical foam stripping which is the most advanced and fastest procedure with numerous advantages.

It was a great night tying up loose ends and putting together a move forward plan :)
