Little Bear Westsail 32 refit: Day 3 Blog #84

Arrrrr me hearties. Welcome aboard.

Today we take a side trip to a local shop where we get our G-10 cut. I took a little time to show how a waterjet cutter works. Unfortunately, the sound quality kind of sucks. My blue tooth headset has background noise suppression which works really well. It also cuts out voice that isn’t close. But I think you can get the idea of how this works. I was impressed. It takes a 40hp motor to get the water up to 50k psi through a diamond tip.

I take the freshly cut plates back to the boat and get them epoxied in place.

As always fair winds, following seas, and God bless.
