I'm glad we live in Alabama. We only had 9 tornadoes, 4 freeze warnings, and 80* days. And, no hurricanes. But, no bridge washouts!

Bill,

Looks like Mother Nature can be pretty unpredictable just about everywhere... after a fairly dry (up to now) winter, we got 7" in about 45 minutes last night. Thankfully tornadoes are rare as hen's teeth in California... knock on wood!

Dang, Steve, that's a bummer. You'll need a tender to get to your boat before it's launched.

A brief update...

The helm seating area is framed in and also have started roughing in the galley cabinets. My wife has shown more interest in progress lately and has been a great help in working out details of the galley and cabin joinery. :D

Helm seating area will have table and storage underneath. Stairs go up to flybridge. Watch berth is a tool bench for now!

The galley countertop is roughed in. The cooktop is covered to protect against stray tools & other mischief. Wall cabinets to follow.
Regards,

Steve

Good Lord! A ten year build still in progress!

I must say I am impressed by your perseverance and persistence. I can’t wait to watch you complete this project.

Cheers

Bob,

Thanks for your kind words. I didn't realistically anticipate the time involved to complete this project, but thankfully have been able to keep it moving forward over the years. I have greatly appreciated the helpful encouragement and inspiration from this forum. In any event, it's good to be getting close to the end of the tunnel! The next ten years will hopefully be spent boating...

It's starting to look real cozy in that wheelhouse. I bet that will be a popular spot on passage.
