Well a little progress for the weekend...

Have most of the deckhouse siding up and the rafters have been cut in. Will have to wait for the budget to recover a bit before getting some windows and doors built...

Have really enjoyed checking out some of the other builds this weekend, lots of great stuff is getting done!

Regards,

Steve

Thanks Pete. The deckhouse is about 10' x 16', with about 7' x 6 1/2' for the galley... definitely only room for one in the kitchen! Gained a little headroom in the center by using shallower rafters on closer centers but still a bit snug. Have been looking for compact appliances etc. to try to make the best use of space.

Regards,

Steve

WOW!! She's very pretty!! ...and your wife is adorable too.

Seriously, the Klondike is one design I've always felt saddened that more people didn't choose to build. So, it is a really great thing that your project is coming along nicely. Kudos to you.
Isn't it amazing!! The person that never has the fortitude to pursue his own dreams, will be the first to try and discourage you from pursuing yours.

I continue to be amazed by the amount and quality of work you are putting into your build. I know conceptually that there is a much to do on the bigger builds, but looking at the cabin pictures, I once again can see just how much there really is. Steve, the cabin is looking great. Interesting problem trying to find smaller equipment to fit in the cabin. One always thinks these boats have more room, but with more room comes more equipment.

Anyway thanks for posting an update.

Dave, thanks for your support. My wife actually wasn't too happy with that pic... something about the lighting... but I've been really fortunate that she's been so tolerant of the project from the start. Still hearing mostly "That's good, what's the next step?" and not (so much) "Do you really have to work on the boat today?" :lol: :?

Carl, thanks again for your kind words. I was surprised too at how much space is taken up by equipment that needs to be on board. Fitting the big stuff first seems to work, making sure there's access for future inspection or maintenance.

Hang in there with the sanding... you'll be ready for the flip soon! :D

Best regards,

Steve

I'm finally getting around to putting my build thread in an appropriate category... after 5 years the "New Member" tag was wearing thin!

A few progress pics for the weekend.

Have been occupied with getting the salon roof ready for cover. Perimeter has been laminated to 3 x 3/8" ply, cover will be 2 x 3/8" ply.

My plan for a stairwell access to the boat deck has been scrapped for the original ladder to allow an extra window on the aft wall.

Roof curve matches sheer. Should be pretty stout as well as functional.

Have roughed in the day head aft wall which has a 4" compartment for electrical panels.

That's it for now... still pedaling!

Regards,

Steve

Thumbs UP! I do have some feel for what you're doing. Although, I know it's not to this scale. Looks great! I'd come help. But, I have to get mine out first!

Thanks for the compliment Billy... I've greatly admired your Belle Isle 23 build and have enjoyed browsing your website.

If you could roll my posts into one thread I'd be very pleased! :D

BIll, thanks for the offer... I'd be pleased to get a chance to meet you and maybe share some sanding stories over a beer or two! :D :lol:

Best regards,

Steve
