Power is back on! Got the shelves down yesterday, temporarily placed with stem in approximate location. Nothing glued yet as I want to make sure this stage is done to the letter.

This is the first time I致e really felt the size of this beast!

This is really fun and I知 totally stoked. But boy it痴 gonna be a tight fit as the build moves on. Once the LVLs are in place I知 really gonna do some remodeling to squeeze out every inch of space.

Tight shops sometimes mean rolling the boat/jig out of the shop, doing stuff, then rolling it back in ... or building a temporary shop extension so you can leave the boat out longer.  It's worth it in the end!

Yup, I知 thinking about 8-12 longer would be good. I致e always figured that as an option. I can live with the limited space side to side but I need space to pre-glass and assemble stuff.

Got room for a big garden shed?  Maybe not ideal in terms of location v. the shop, but you don't have to take it down and can use it for other stuff ... hmmmm....

How much did that run you in materials? Do you think that could hold up to strong wind?

I spent this morning getting the alignment of the stem to the shears just right, getting them glued together and building the frames for the stringers. I think I need remedial geometry! My 55 degree cut for the stem support was sort of backwards!! But I figured it out and it looks good now.

I don't know exactly how much.  My best guess is $1500.  I put two layers of UV rated greenhouse plastic on it and that was $500 of the $1500.  This winter we have had winds over 65mph and 12" of snow one day. So far so good.  The major problem with it was condensation.  I cured that by adding a third layer of cheep plastic on the inside to catch the drips and run them off to the edges.
