The Starling Project - Part 14
Let me tell you about a typical Whangarei weather scenario. The forecast was for a day of strong winds from the North East with heavy rain. In the morning as I began work on the boat it rained hard and blew like hell. In fact it blew so hard the Starling was getting wet from the deluge that began to stream into the carport. So I went to work and put up a tarpaulin to keep the rain at bay --- Yep, that's right, the minute I put up the tarp (nearly falling off the wooden sawhorses, hammer in hand, mouth full of nails) the rain stopped and the sun came out. Great! If there is one thing about Northland, you don't have to wait long for the sun!
Two bottom plywood planks are now glued and fastened onto the frames with screws and 'holdfast' nails. Again I had to fiddle around with a wood plane to get things to fit as snugly as possible.
Thank goodness for gap filling glue is all I can say LOL !
