the picture is upside down. it looks like hes used talc mixed with epoxy to fill the gaps on that tiny block of timber, and just let it all run out. Note that the plywood has the knot holes in its exterior veneer which shows its not marine grade plywood, its exterior construction grade, just as I feared. No sign of glue eleswhere. ILL take delamination and structural failure within 2 weeks for $100 please Scott.
Good eye, but believe it or not the picture is right side up. It's was taken inside the port hull facing inward about midship. The white epoxy with the excess running upward, defying gravity , was in place before the crossbeam was attached. The hulls were actually built at another site and then transported by truck to their current (probable final) location. In the time honored tradition, the hulls were of course built upside-down and then flipped over once complete. The runs of epoxy came from the outside of the hull when it was being glassed, and dare I say, faired. Except for some random globs near the crossbeams, the beams are not purposely sealed to the hull skin. There is literally an air gap, with light obviously coming through, around the hole where the beam enters the hull. There's was no need to seal the gap because the bottom sheeting of the bridgedeck is below the crossbeam/hull joint. The bottom of the bridgedeck, once sheeted and glassed, will seal the joint from water. Frightening doesn't begin to describe this thinking. And just so there is no confusion, there is NO marine quality anything on this boat. The structure is entirely home grade lumber. That's the key to building a 65' cat for less than $500K, and clearly the future of boat building.
...and yes, I really want to see it get to the water, although I'm not sure why. Go the Hotrod!
