Build Clinic Report- March 10, 2018

Eight club members attended build session five including Larry Lamphier, Bob Green, Rick Lawler, Tom Melsheimer, Tom Schreiber, Tony Schreiber, and Dave Steger. Potential Member Steve Winfield was also there for his second time as he builds his first Soling.

Rick Lawler is showing great progress as his boat now has the keel and rudder attached with carbon fiber reinforcement in key stress areas. His boat is shown below...

Rick Lawler's New Soling

With respect to model building and weight placement, Tom Schreiber brought his model balancing jig to the session. This allows you to determine where the fore/aft balance point of the boat is located. He brought a test boat to demonstrate the jig and we tried testing Dave Steger's fully rigged #78 to see how the the addition of the mast and rigging effected the balance point. Finally we tried Rick's new empty hull, deck and lid without lead in the keel to see how a base boat fares before ballast is added. Surprisingly, all three examples had balance points that were within about 1/2 inch of each other.

Tom Melsheimer is making great progress with the GPS speedometer. Using a classic (clamp-to-the-shoe) roller skate allowed testing of the device out on Lloyd Road. Bob Green was our cordless drill operator for this initial trial. (No model builders were harmed in any way while performing this test.)

As it turned out all of the enhancements Tom added to the software for the receiver put too much stress on the processor as it tries to do all the floating point calculations needed, and all within a very short time cycle. We did get some sporadic speed readings. Tom's version 2.0 processor will have enough digital horsepower to capture all the data, do the math and include filtering to improve the final result. Testing will continue at the next session.

As it happens we had yet another birthday to celebrate. Our other "Tom" (Melsheimer) was the birthday boy this time and had a delicious "banana bread birthday delight".

The last 2018 Build Clinic will be on March 24th. Tom Schreiber has created a Boat First Aid Kit and will bring it along. We look forward to seeing what Dr. Schreiber can do for sick Soling.

Also, the "Lloyd Road Soup Kitchen" will be open on the 24th for a post session lunch for those that can stay to celebrate the start of the 2018 season. Until next time...

Jane & Dave........CLEAR !!!
