Nice to see an old buddy down here. The Connie is much further advanced and I am still catching up on the build log, very slowly.

You will find a loot of members down here that you probably know

Cheers
Geoff

It comes from a spay can. I think it is probably easier to handle by just having to shake the can than to mix.

I have been reading through your build log of the Black Pearl, but am in the early stages and yet to comment

One of our friends is also working on a ZHL kit which I will be seeing later this morning. He is the one who came up with the idea and has used it on most of his builds if not all. I am impressed with the quality of the timber of the ZHL. He is the best one to explain the process. I'm pretty sure you know who I am talking about.

We are going to look at deck planking for my Connie as I have been advised very strongly not to use the Tanganyika that was supplied in the kit

Cheers
Geoff

Hi Geoff,

I think I know who you mean ;-)

If your kit Tanganyika is anything like the replacement wood I bought for my Black Pearl build, you may be well advised not to use it! I only carried on with it because the Pearl is supposed to be a bit rough around the edges, on a more serious build it would have been of little use at all.

We came up with some cherry to replace the Tanganyika with.

It is a lot lighter than Tanganyika I have which was more orange in colour but I have seen some different shades of Tanganyika which vary a lot.

Hi Geoff

Build is looking very nice well done.

Good move to change the Tanganyika deck planking over to Cherry, I wish I had done the same with my Revenge build.

Hi Denis

Thanks for being so adamant that I was not to use the Tanganyika for deck planking.

I must also thank Brian for sourcing the Cherry for me. I hope I can do it justice and sure I will.

The thing I like the most on SOS is seeing old mates and meeting new ones in a very friendly environment.

Sharing advice, advice is free.

My goal is to get my build log up to date before the end of the month and then start building again. :D

Cheers
Geoff

Hi Geoff

I don't think you will regret using the Cherry.

Also a thank you to Brian for helping you out.

Well I had an issuewith the false deck. The false deck goeds upward from this point. My clamps were all to large so it was time to make a clamp up. I went through my junk box that has all the little bits and pieces in it that you should never throw out and made a clamp

The next step was to fit the lower gun ports. I needed to use epoxy resin OOPS I am allergic to that stuff. Eye lids get real red around the eyelids forehead got scaly. Down to the Safety shop and get the right equipment for the job. The mask and gloves are special for the ingredients in the appoxy. resin Epoxy resin nearly got me put in hospital for 3 days

The epoxy resin still did get me but only slightly
