The bulkheads in the 38' Northern Bay are being installed in accordance with the the drawings that we were provided with at the start of this project. Stringers will be fiberglassed into the hull to provide a resting place for the fuel tanks. Aluminum has been ordered for our welder to make the fuel tanks that are going to fit between these bulkheads on either side of the boat.
These two fiberglass panels will support the shaft tube. Unlike the 32' Osmond, this tube will run the full length of the shaft and have a cutlass bearing on either end. Engine bed preparation will be next on the agenda while we try to get the motor and gear into the boat before "real winter" arrives.
Another day at the shop and lots of stuff happening. Check back tomorrow for more pics.
