    Engineering uses metres and millimetres.
    Dressmakers use centimetres.

    But try getting a metric / metric steel tape measure in Thailand.
    Thai Watsadu and Global House stock metric / imperial for some strange reason.

    But the most developed country use inches, feet, miles, Fahrenheits, pounds, etc, it's very comfortable for calculations.

    The building plans have measurements in inches and in mm. I am using mm.

    In this video I am making the keel fillet between bulkhead 4 and 3. I am lightly sanding the areas where I am going to apply the fillets, then I clean the areas, then I apply a layer of unthickened epoxy and then I create the fillet. I am mixing epoxy in paper small cups so every batch I can make only a fillet of about 70mm. I tried mixing larger batches of epoxy, but with the paper cup size I am using and the temperature in my workshop I find that smaller batches work much better.

    In this video I am making the fillets on the bulkheads of one of the hulls. The more I practice the better the fillets get. It has been more than 10 days since the last time I uploaded a video. I have been to Yangon, Myanmar for a couple of days. If you like to see a video about that trip, you can find it on my other channel: http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCVVduqBlU0J1lozDZy1EsjA

    I start with a clean up of the shop. Now I am going to see how to fit the fore and aft deck. While I am looking at it I am thinking of doing some work to make it all look better, even though most of it will not be visible once the fore and aft deck are epoxied in place. I am also thinking about sanding everything inside another time with 80 grit sandpaper and apply a layer of epoxy. While I am removing epoxy and pieces of deck support that are wrongly places I notice how strong the epoxy bonds and fillets actually are. I use my wonderful Japanese chisel to remove the wrongly placed deck support. The end result looked very nice, but I canít show it in this video, because the battery of my camera was empty.

    Hi Marcel. It's looking good so far.

    I have a question about removing the pieces of deck support that were wrongly placed. Did they need to be removed? Could you have left them in place or would they get in the way of something if they were left there?

    Hello Neverna, thank you.

    I finally can see it better and the wrongly placed deck supports have to be removed, because otherwise they will be in the way of the beams that connect the 2 hulls together. These 2 beams rest against the top part of one side of the bulkheads so the wrongly placed deck support can't be there.

    OK. Thanks for that, Marcel. I'll look out for that part in a future video.

    Looks good to me. I don't know If I mentioned it before but there is a couple sailing around the world on a boat called "lucky Fish".

    It's by the same builder and type of the style you're doing. YouTube Lucky Fish. And no, no relation to......the fish.

    Hello fishlocker, thank you for your message.

    I am friends with Stewart and Zaya from Luckyfish. Me and my family stayed with them on their beautiful Wharram Tiki 38 in The Bahamas. Stewart and Zaya are wonderful. I made a video about our time together in The Bahamas.

    There are many videos of people cruising about on yachts.
    For some reason those involving firm-breasted flat-bellied bikini wearers are very popular.
    If there’s any featuring grumpy old blokes with saggy man-boobs discussing refrigerator breakdowns they’d be less popular I’d imagine.

    In this video I cut out a notch in the fore deck panel where the stempost will fit. I also removed another deck support that I had epoxied in the wrong place.

    In this video I first move the stands so that the boat is standing more stable while I am working on it. You will also see that I started sanding everything. The building plans don't tell to do this, but I want to inside and especially the fillets looks better, so I decided to sand everything smooth and then apply a layer of unthickened epoxy and at some places touch up with thickened epoxy. I am especially not satisfied about the looks of the stempost fillet, so I will try to make it better. After that I am drilling 12mm vent holes in bulkhead 1,3 and 4. These holes are sanded and will also get a layer of epoxy. I am also fixing then deck stringer to the fore deck. The method is to first drill a few holes so that the stringer can be stitched and kept in place. After that I put a layer of unthickened epoxy at the place where the stringer will be and then I put colloidal silica into the resin and hardener mix and apply this to the stringer. After it is in place and stitches tightened I put some nails into it to fix them.

    In this video I am doing some sanding and cleaning in preparation for making the fillets and panels look much better. Most of this will not be visible later, but I still want to do it, because I am learning a lot about the materials and methods that I am using. I am feeling so good when I am working on my boat.

    I did not do so much today. I just cleaned up the sanding dust again and fixed the aft deck stringer.

    In this video I receive the sails, running & standing rigging & deck hardware from Rolly Tasker Sails in Thailand. At first I contacted them to order the sails, but I was very delighted that they are also able to provide running & standing rigging and deck hardware. I am very satisfied about how the team of Rolly Tasker Sails helped me with all the things I need for my Wharram Hitia 14. I am also very happy that they labelled every item, because I am not yet familiar with everything.

    In this video I am making the fillets look a bit better & apply epoxy coat on the inside hull panels & bulkheads. Another 3 work hours. Not much interesting happening, but I am just documenting all my work on the Wharram Hitia 14.

    It's a journey that is exciting. The arrival will be at the launching.

    First script: PG rated. The cat tacks out of the harbour through the gently lapping waves and the disappearance over the horizon into the setting sun.

    The directors cut: XXX rated. The boat rises onto one hull, caught by a sudden gust of wind when the oversize main sheet sticks in the pulley. The main stay snaps and during the cartwheeling that follows, the skipper is impaled on the unfastened spinnaker pole. His mate, out on the trapeze during all this, plunges to his watery grave dragged down by the weight of additional hull fillets and is snapped in two up by a passing giant octopus's razor sharp, horny beak.

    All of course recorded in high definition video and and supported by a mix of flash backs to the construction, seemingly minor errors, pointing to the placement the wrong cleat in the wrong location and UPSIDE DOWN, cascading into his family slumping into the sand.

    A tray full of GOLD is not worth a moment in time.
