Seems like Billethead only means the scroll on the tip of the false stem. And I agree, it'd be nice if there was a more salty word than false stem.

I just looked in Sensible Cruising Designs. In the section on NEREIA there is a drawing on page 73 (in my edition) which details the stem profile. Herreshoff refers to it as a "false piece," and includes a very large drawing (full size?) so that the builder wouldn't ruin his profile by getting the shape wrong.

Milo:

Those scroll pieces are called "trailboards" as far as I know.

"Billethead" I like it.

Word of the day: Don't be a billethead.

Time to roll......I came across these pictures from Jim lying on the workbench while watching the guys dry fitting the wheel pieces to see how they go together. They are going to do some counter balancing so the hull rolls nice and easy. That required some weight studies. Jim thinks the hull with the external sheathing weighs just under 2000 pounds. But there are still lots of forms inside and they add quite a bit more weight so to be safe we are thinking we need to size the lifting gear for 5000 pounds just to be safe. Bruce is thinking safety is first consideration, safety of the crew and safety of the hull. I like Bruce's thinking.

Some of Brandon's & Carter's handy work. Carter works for Brandon and runs the CNC machines. Carter is another of the people who are really important to this project. OH, and they have a new CNC machine. I think this one is three axis instead of the first machine that is five axis (the one with the enclosure).

Yes. Scary but exciting.

Have they considered eventual modification of the fixtures to allow rolling the boat once the deck is on for access or will you install the engine and saildrive prior to the deck?
We actually discussed that today, I think they will install the saildrive and engine before the deck goes on, but that is still under discussion.

Lots of interesting questions popping up. For a simple project there sure are a lot of complexities.

My boat had the engine put in prior to the decking being built over it. It now sucks to work on the motor. As much as I hate it, perhaps the thing wouldn't be so terrible if they'd been forced to put the motor in afterwards. They'd have thought about things like getting to the block zincs etc....

We are putting a large soft patch over the motor so we will be able to get at it.

I have to go back up there this morning on business, hopefully I will be able to stop by and take another look at the wheel progress.

I once had a friend ask me what's it like to work on a boat.

I said that getting to some parts is akin to opening up a Russian nested doll in such a way that you have to get it all back together again when you are done, except that all the halves are glued together, and screwed and doweled and perfectly finished.

I was wondering when you'd say that. Elegance is damn tricky. It's kind of like when you tear apart the Rutter Requiem. What you think you hear, and what's actually written seem like 2 different realities.
