Not yet. TDY this week then a few odds n ends to be able to call it complete. Hopefully this weekend I'll have the bulk of it done and final inspection early next week, a couple honey-dos then back on it. I bought a trailer for it but I'm afraid it may be to high to climb in and out, so most likely going to put it back on the building cradle, for a while at least.
Happy Boating,
Tracy

Use some of the building frame wood to build steps.

Will look into that Bill. I'll need to build them regardless, even if on the cradle.

Thanks for the tip!

Tracy....Bill is correct. ..build some stairs....
My shop is a little small...I guess I should say tight...because of the equipment. ..so I found a adjustable shower chair...at a thrift store...came in very handy...big rubber feet...nice rubberized foam seat...
I have a idea...to take the foam seat off...and make a mahogany platform for the top...and use it for casting on the front of the flyer...

Tracy,
This is what I use. It folds up for storage and can be easily moved around the boat. Lowe's also sells a three step version.

Nice, but how do you pull the camper and boat?

Passed final inspection yesterday. Power went in last week, but no 220, yet, but need it for my table saw & dust collector. Want to paint inside walls/floor first then do electrical. Probably going to be a lot of cords until I figure out where I want to place things. Will be more than adequate for all the toys. Best part is I have an "all weather" place to work on the FF, no more rain delays or hot Florida days.
Happy Boating,
Tracy

Couple photos of the finished boat shed. Interior painting will be wrapped up by this weekend, then watch out. I don't know where all my power tools will be sitting, so for now, just extension cords running through the rafters.

I'm in Florida, of course it will :D

I'll have a window unit just to keep it somewhat comfortable during the summer. But the shade and luxury of not having to carry tools/materials in and out every time I work on the boat are a God send.
Happy Boating,
Tracy
