I concur with the others. I've been waiting for a long time to see a more complete photo of the boat. She's beautiful. Great lines. And I also cannot wait to see the launch. Great work Steve.

Thanks for your kind words Carl.

I'm doing my best to follow the lines of Glen L's plans as closely as I can manage...

A few pics for the weekend:

Much time is being spent pulling wires and sorting out plumbing, but seeing some progress...

House batteries are now installed in their final resting place but only 1 pair has been wired up so far. Will get the rest done over the next week or so.

The mast and boom are finally complete and ready for powder coat. The metal guy has been tied up with other work for a while but will be moving forward with railing starting next week. Have had material on hand for a while. (sorry I can't seem to get these two pics to display in portrait mode)

My youngest just got his open water diver rating this summer... will put him to work checking zincs etc. once we're on the water. The hair challenged guy with bifocal mask bringing up the rear is yours truly :lol:

My youngest ready to tackle underwater maintenance!

That's it for now...

WOW....And here I am feeling a little overwhelmed at the prospect of starting a True Grit build and you are building not just one boat, but one boat and one SHIP (I refuse to call this beauty a boat). Like many other of the builds on this site, your craftsmanship and dedication are an inspiration! Maybe one day I can make it up to the Bay Area and see her on the water. Looking forward to more of your updates!

A brief progress note.

Still pulling wires and sorting out plumbing. Hot water system works now but somehow I ordered 2 air heat exchangers with the wrong voltage fans so have to replace them.

Attached a pic of the helm with overhead soffit in place. Need to add a few overhead switches. The ceiling lights are installed but not yet wired up. The headliner will be attached to 1/8" pvc sheet which velcros in place.

Wiring about 40% complete for the port panel; engine panel on stbd is functional.

That's it for now.

Regards,

Steve
