CATAMARAN BUILD – We Bond the Hull Sides!! (MJ Sailing – Ep 200)Wow, can you believe we are hitting episode 200??!! It seems like just a few weeks ago that I started shyly picking up a camera as we were in the middle of the aluminum boat refit – not sure what I would say or if anyone would find it worth watching. But, nearly 5 years later, here we are!! Matt and I open the tent doors and fit on the nose cones to make sure everything is still aligned when we do the dry fits of the hull sides. Once it is determined that the way we’d set it up to bond still allows us to seamlessly put the cones on – it’s time to get to work. Our friends Brian and Summer make their way over to Kent Island just after sunrise on one cool morning, and with one test run and a lot of team work, we manage to get the starboard outer hull side on just within the 40-60 minute window we have to work with our methacrylate bonding agent. One side down and one to go!! *Fitting on the nose cones – filmed on July 15 *Bonding starboard hull side – filmed on July 18 We hope you enjoy!! Much love from Annapolis! Jessica, Matt & Georgie
