Construction progress, November 1, 2009.





Yesterdays high was +18C (about 67F) so any sealant materials on the scow requiring final curing no doubt had their chance then. Perry is now well on his way installing the floatation foam. This very light white foam is exactly the same stuff used as packing material for stereo equipment, etc. It is also used for floating docks. The foam company erred a bit on the order making a bit more than we needed but making it in slightly smaller blocks than we wanted. So Perry is having to cut it up somewhat. Too much foam is a bonus as now we can fill the entire hull with foam and the top decking will hold it all down. You can see here how the foam stops about 3 inches (7.5 cm) below the top. The extra blocks can be cut into slabs 3 inches thick and placed atop the blocks of foam seen here.
