Getting ready to possibly order/build an Oxford Shell kit. I have never built a boat before, my background is in aviation so have a limited background in building using balsa and spruce...
In aviation circles, safety wire is used to secure all nuts and bolts to prevent them from loosening. There are special pliers used for this that grab two ends of a wire, you then pull a handle and the wire is twisted tight. Not sure if this is even possible (having never built a boat before) but if it works it could dramatically speed up the process of wiring. If anyone has ever done this, or if you have any thoughts on it, let me know what you think. I am all about building the boat properly, however, I love efficiency! (I have this dream of hooking all the wires in place, then just running down the line zipping each one tight.
Feedback is appreciated!
