Construction Details

Feb. 13, 09 — A few days ago I started working on the drawings for this model. Yesterday I finished scaling the lines and started cutting out the station molds. Today I glued the molds to the building board, put in spacers and also attached the first planks on the chine.

Feb. 17, 09 — Since my last update I have been working on planking the hull. As of this afternoon I have finished the bottom and started on the sides of the hull. The picture above shows the port side planked about half way up. Over the next few days I will finish planking the hull and transom, after which I will fiberglass the hull.

Feb. 20, 09 — I didn’t get much done on this model this week until today when I finished planking the port side. I still have to cut in the aft end of the hull and correct the shear line at the bow. After I make those changes, I will start planking the starboard side.

Feb. 28, 09 — I have now finished building the hull. I electronically flipped the hull over in the picture above. Tonight I will put the first piece of fiberglass on the model. Because I glass each surface separately, it will take 4-5 days to fully glass the hull. Once the hull is glassed, I will begin filling, fairing and priming the hull.

March 19, 09 — Since my last update I have completely fiberglassed the hull. I have also put on and sanded off several coats of fairing compound. Last night I sanded the hull fair and put on the first coat of high build epoxy primer. The picture shows the hull as it looked this morning before I sanded it down and then spot filled a few imperfections that the uniform color made evident. Later today I will sand the spots I filled down and put a second coat of epoxy primer on the hull. Tomorrow I will start building the lift strips, installing the bow thruster, doing the final shaping of the upper part of the hull and cutting the in-hull ports into the hull.

March 29, 09 — I have now finished major construction on the hull. I removed the hull from the building frame and glassed the inside. I have also installed the lift strips, bow thruster and port cut outs. I have also put the firat caots of paint on above the waterline. Tomorrow I will start building the deck and cabin house and I will also sand the model down and start building up the topsides paint until I get a good base for the final finish.

April 6, 09 — For the last week I have been working on the interior. So far I have built the cockpit platform, the stern platform and I have roughed in part of the interior. Over the next week or two I will finish building the interior.

April 13, 09 — Since my last update I have finished building the galley cabinets except for the top panel and a few doors. I have also finished varnishing the teak and holly sole and started building the deck and cockpit details. The plan is to finish the cockpit and then build the deck section that covers the interior as a temporarily removeable part. I will make the deck over the interior removeable because once it is built I have to take it off the boat and finish the underside of the deck. I will be buying the fabrics and vinyl to finish the main cabin this week. I still have a few details to add such as door latches, the gally faucett and the stove. I will also build the head.

April 19, 09 — For the last 6 days I have been working on the interior and the cockpit. I am close to having the cockpit roughed in and the interior is finished except for a few details and the head. This coming week I will try to finish the interior and cockpit so that I can start building the rest of the cabin top. I will also finish painting the hull.

June 6, 09 — It has been quite a while since I last updated this model. It doesn’t look like I have done much, but the interior is now finished and I am ready to put the cabin top on. In addition to finishing the interior (note the pillows on the berth), I have built the side decks and the cabin top (it is finished on the inside). I have also put in the in-hull ports, cut the opening for the door between the cockpit and stern platform and built the modified stern platform, although I haven’t put the platform on the boat yet. I was slowed down on my model projects by the fact that I had to get one of my boats ready launch. That boat is now in the water, so I will be spending more time on this model. The next steps will be to install the cabin top and then build the helm station and the rest of the cockpit surround including the radar arch.

June 21, 09 — Since my last update I have built the bulk of the cabin top. Today I finished the filling and fairing of the cabin top and sprayed it with the first coat of primer. This coming week I will spot fill a few imperfections on the cabin house and then finish building the cockpit surround and the radar arch.

July 8, 09 — Since my last update I have been working on building the rest of the boat exclusive of the helm station. I have now finished everything except the stowage compartment on the transom. The main new features are the side wings around the cockpit, the radar arch and the detailing inside the cockpit. I have also put the extended stern platform on. I primer painted the topsides today and will build the transom stowage over the next couple of days. When that is done I will finish the detailing on the cabin sides and then put the finish paint on the model. I will build the revised helm station later as a drop in module.

Aug. 11, 09 — The painting took a lot longer than planned because I had a paint failure which lifted earlier coats. Consequently, I had to sand the model down and start over from scratch on the painting. However, I have now finished painting the model and am starting to build and install details. There will be quite a few visible changes as detailing procedes.

Aug 19, 09 — I am now adding details. The trim at the top of the hull is on as are the trim rings and glass in the ports. I have also built the deck hatches. The next step will be to finish the decals and then move on to the rails on the stern platform.

Aug 19, 09 (cont) — This picture shows the extended stern platform with the Ciera logo and the hail port.

Sept. 9, 09 — Today I finished building the ground tackle. Next I will build the bow rail and other hand rails on the boat.

Sept. 25, 09 — Today I finished building the bow rail. Now that the rail is on the boat it looks like I will have to reweld the forward most support on the starboard side. The rail is made from 316 stainless steel. Over the weekend I will build the mooring cleats and the bow light.

Oct. 26, 09 — Since my last update I have finished building the deck cleats and today I finished the rail around the stern platform. That railis 316 stainless steel. I will now start working on the outdrives and other below the waterline details.
