It’s looking more like the Seaview…

Today I installed the wiring for the fin lights and sail lights. Added Deans micro connectors to aid in taken the apart. Then I added the Depron cell foam a trick I learned from Dave Welch. All the Seaviews I have built to date small medium and large have used the same ballast and weight configuration with great success and all based on BigDave’s first Moebius Seaview he built a few years ago.

I added some lead in the keel. I used pounded out fishing weights.

Next I mated the top section to the bottom. Tomorrow I’ll blend the seam away. Before I did that I made sure the WTC would pull out and go back as one pieced attached to the lower stern section. It worked.

Since Jeff wanted me to avoid using a screw if I could I used two rare earth magnets in the tip of the stern with great success. Look Mom no screws!
Tomorrow I’ll pin and magnet set the deck on, clean up the seams and primer the boat. I’ll also add those louvers. Then we are down to preening and cleaning the cosmetics. Lights should be here in a couple of days but they won’t take long to install as the wiring is all in place.

More tomorrow,

Steve
