Wow, I can’t believe I’m actually working on the last few pieces of this build. For anyone reading wondering if they can build a Scamp, my advise is: Yes, if you are persistent and not afraid to work through problems and willing to work everyday for just over a year. Otherwise, go buy one.
I have truly enjoyed this experience. But, I’m a ham n egger who loves a project. If you are a white glove guy, maybe you should start with a kayak and see how you enjoy it.
Enough sappy talk, let’s get to those cockpit coamings.
I first marked out where I wanted all the holes drilled. After double checking all measurements, I drilled out both coamings for a uniform look. I then used a counter sink on each coaming to insure the screw head was inset. I also rounded all exposed edges with an 1/8″ round over bit.
Now for the triangular pieces. After shaping the triangular pieces, and angling the edges to better fit against the coaming and cabin side, I clamped them in place and filleted the inside seams. I will fillet and glass the outside seams once the inside fillet has cured. Inside fillet.
I’ll clean up the edges of the glass after filling with epoxy.
