Orange peel affect is on almost everything that is industral, as its a good strong coat and will last for years, auto finish is good bht need to be upkept


The paint rep dropped by today, showed him the pics of the boat and he also had a look at the effected steel work....

verdict => too heavy with the 2nd coat and way too hot when applied, the really bad areas are a contamination .

this is part of the effected steel work that was sprayed on the same day, oddly enough only half the beam was effected, the rest as we've since noted was in the shade and completely unaffected.

yep its all starting to come together nicely...... soon..... very soon I hope
cant wait.....

lets hope it floats [Linked Image]

I'm actually missing working on Jurassic karp and I'm keen to get back onto it again, the huge gain has been the bits I now know I'll do differently => very differently in fact
shocked
I have a few other ideas to try out over the next week or two that will also have an impact on Karp in the long run. hopefully over the x-mas break I'll get Karp into full primer and have the graffic's all finalised and cut out ready for the base color coat

as of tonight (actually 1/2 an hour ago wink )...... two of the main bits are married again grin

the treadgrip is applied.... this is just the first coat so the masking tape will stay until the 2nd coat is on.

couple more shots of the treadgrip

close-up of the treadgrip remembering this is just the first coat so it will have a bit more body to it later....

for perspective the strip is ~40mm wide wink

2nd coat applied and dry, masking tape removed smile

although it looks quite coarse its actually rather smooth to the touch, it does actually 'feel' quite grippy
grin

[Linked Image]

The tredgrip was tinted to match as close as possible to the actual color of the boat, and esentually it is as close to identicle as the paint shop could get it, the main reason its so different is its a low sheen paint and the boat has a high gloss over it so a dead match was never going to happen....

but damn its close
wink

lesson learned for Jurassic Karp, make sure that the tredgrip can be matched to the color wink

today was a tidy up day....
chase a few loose ends and do a few of the fiddly little bits

simple stuff like this

[Linked Image]

the eye-bolt was a part of original hold-down setup on the trailer, 4 of them strapped the boat down via turn-buckles.
One broke on the way home and I did stop 3 or 4 times to re-tension the boat back down.....
No wonder it moved around a bit on the trailer shocked

Of the 4, one remove itself somewhere between here and its old home, 2 snapped off clean as soon as I showed them the spanner and this one was the cream of the crop ......

this eyebolts location is where the threaded end is pointing, now sporting a nice n new stainless bolt

grin

I also spent a few hours on the lathe machining up some steel discs....

the discs prior to being machined up....

[Linked Image]

now it may seem a bit of an odd thing to be doing but there is as usual a reason behind them..... and that is the one thing we've not repaired/cleaned/altered/replaced/painted/resined or polished......

I sure as hell aint using these.....

[Linked Image]

the steel discs will when finished allow me to roll 20mm alloy square tube into a nice tight circle..... and then with a wave of the magic wand I'll hopefully have a nice pair of rudder boxes.....

thats if it works

whistle

stay tuned...... wink

half an hour later smile

(NB: the unit behind my rolling die is off a Taipan and is what I'm duplicating, only slightly smaller wink )

[Linked Image]

all the bits are now rolled and ready for assembly which I'll do if I find a spare minute or 10 over the next few days.
Haven't decided on whether I'll tig weld them together or just use pop-rivets and small bolts as yet, but the plan does call for some stainless steel plates to be pop-riveted on, these plates will strengthen up the areas around the hinge pins etc and reduce wear down to a minimal amount...


merry xmas to all

xmas dinners aside, and the customary mid-day nap to sleep off the meal.... tired sleep
and having assembled a dozen odd toys for the boys along with a few others bits for the less mechanicly minded adults that insisted in dropping by..... bloody relitives eek
Xmas is half done, only have the other side of the family to do tomorrow cry


Today I managed to sneak out to the shed armed only with the last 2 toys to assemble, with them done and quietly returned to the lounge room without being spotted I figured I'd earnt a reward ...... boat time grin


2 hours later and both 'boxes' are assembled with one slightly further progressed than the other, I'll just sneak in another half n hour and do the pins.... so a duplicate set to Jurassic Karps is pumped out .....
cool

Oh what the hell.....
may as well slip all the bits together for a mock-up....

so.....

after 3 hours we have ....

every bolt I had was way too short or way too long, so this was the simplest solution, rather pleased with the end result

Hours n hours of measuring /checking, double checking my measurements after re-measuring yet again, I decided to do some more trimming to the rudders to get them where I wanted......

[Linked Image]

[Linked Image]


A phonecall was made and the positions and angles were discussed at length .... 2 mozzie owners measuring the boats as we walk around our own sheds comparing the pro's n con's of what and where and how much.
Thanks Philip, your knowledge backed my thought up almost exactly...... + or - a few mm

the next thing I know is I'm at the local army disposals store and much to my supprise (& $8:00 later) I get back home with this....

[Linked Image]

yup....
dome tent fibreglass pole thingies....

smirk
and this has what to do with 1182 ???? .....

Oh....
and I also added 2 extra screws between the existing screws in the tramp track, 20 extra screws means a lot more strength for the tramp/hull connection and although I'm a trim 75kgs when she goes 2 up then it may well get some added stress that may be too much for the old girl
