    In this video I am stitching the side panels of the second hull together. At the end of the video I am taking a look at the drawings to see how to stitch the bulkheads. I then discover that I have glued the stiffeners on the wrong sides on 6 of the bulkheads. So now I will soon discover how easy or difficult it is to remove the epoxied stiffeners and deck supports.

    In this video I am glueing the stiffeners and deck supports again on the bulkheads, but now on the correct side. I discovered this mistake a couple of days ago. I think I don't have to remove the incorrect ones, just remove a little bit at places where these wrongly placed stiffeners and deck supports are in the way. I also started making a stand for one hull.

    Good to see someone building a boat.
    It’s something people have been doing for thousands of years and boats were built before carts or any wheeled vehicles I’d imagine.
    I built my first boat in 1976 (International A class catamaran) whilst in my last year of school, and really enjoyed feeling it float for the first time at a stage in life when there was not much happiness to be had.

    An excellent deduction Watson. You do realise that the hull with the extra stiffeners will be heavier and extra ballast will need to be added in the other hull.

    It may also be deemed non-standard and you will be disqualified after you win the Olympic Gold medal

    I thought about it and I am going to remove the wrongly places stiffeners and deck supports to save weight and stick to the building plans.

    In this video I first clean up the workshop. Then I do some work on placing the stiffeners and deck supports on 2 bulkheads (again). I also assemble one of the stands for the hull. I use epoxy and some nails to keep it all together while the epoxy dries. Later I will add fillets to the stand to make it all stronger.

    Will you save much weight ?
    Stiffness and support are good things.

    I don't think anymore the weight of the extra stiffeners and deck supports is an issue. But in it is very good practice with Wharram builds to stick to the plans. At the moment I have not removed them yet (I tried a bit with a plane and a chisel, but I think I wait for a multitool that I ordered).

    In this video I am glueing stiffeners and deck supports on the bulkheads and I am adding fillets for more strength on the stands.
