Well progress so far.
.I have completed the sheer and deck clamp laminations.
.Sanded and given the inside of the hull another coat of epoxy.
.Made the guards for the sides and encapsulated them ready for fitting to the hull. I am only having guards down the sides. Not around the transom.

At present we are having the outside of the house painted so I am going around repairing/replacing ann rotten timbers on the veranda which runs the full length around the house. A lot of work!

Once the house work is finished it will be:
.Order the timber for the deck framing, battens etc
.Fit guards, prop strut and rudder log using sealant.

Then I have to bite the bullet and buy the motor. Looks like I will go with a PCM 343.

Well after acouple of months doing house renovations I am back working on the boat and will soon fit the guards, prop strut and rudder log. Have bought a top bearing and safety collar for the rudder and ordered some timber for the deck battens.

To all the American members I hope you have a great Independence Day Celebrations. This one is of particular significance as it is the centenary of the Battle of Hamel. The first but not the last time Australian and USA soldiers have fought side by side as comrades in arms.

Congrats Tony on progress with your beautiful build! And thanks for the Independence Day wishes... the US shares much in common interest and sacrifice with our Australian Brothers.

Best regards,

Steve
