Dodger Suspense

April 29, 2016

I know you are all anxiously waiting for the next dodger installment and I have been lax. I forget how addictive these HBO serirs are and my responsibilities to my audience. So here you are. What you have all been waiting for.


Francois seeing to the details


After completion of the basic wood structure the unit had to be prepared for fiberglassing which takes a lot of work making coved corners and preparing the surface structute. Here the inside has been glassed and thecoutside has been glassed and received the first coating of fairing compound. The fairing compound is actually an easily sandable paint which is applied in several layers before the final paint coatings are applied.


Outside still needs paint but it’s getting close.

    It is actually very cool following the dodger adventure, C & T. Keep em coming. Looking forward to seeing the final installed product, with the solar panel. Very clever and good on ya. Cheers, Jon C.

    I’m amazed those guys. No face masks, gloves, coveralls, I’m itchy all over just looking at the photos. It is a first-rate-looking dodger.

    Don’t forget the stereo speakers, the dodger is an excellent boom box…really good for irritating unwanted close neighbours in an anchorage. Haaar!

    This has been a splendid series … one that leaves that hack wanker Julian Fellowes (and his plebian Downton Abbey opus) far behind in your dust. I have been fascinated by every aspect of the high-tech methodology and old-school craftsmanship that have come together to make this thing happen. Francois is apparently a Perfect Living Master of this particular realm of design-and-build moxie. Now see if he will carve you a buxom figurehead for the bow … Connie could be the model !

    We both have been following the metamorphosis of the Dinghy. Can’t wait to see it in place!
