If this was successful you should be able to click on this small picture and be taken to a larger picture of the exact same thing. Like blogger, only more complicated. But I'm not complaining. This interface is definitely slicker and if I was a little smarter the web site would be infinitely better.
After receiving a quote and a set of technical drawing of the motor going into the 32' Osmond the engine beds can be put in the boat. The original idea was to cut down the existing stringers to get them to where we wanted to be but cooler heads prevailed and the beds will be built from scratch. Two pieces of 1" foam were bonded together to make the primary structure and then these stringers will be fiberglassed over with 21 to 28 layers of fiberglass (alternating matt with woven). We should have the motor ordered by the end of the week and if all goes well it will be sitting in the shop when the owner arrives on the 17th.
I almost have it, I just have to figure out how to resize the original picture before I link it up to the thumbnail in the blog. Learning is fun.
