Ann, I took this photo with my hand to give some idea of size. I find aspects like this just awesome. I was perched right on top when I snapped this image :

Jesus! What size rudder shaft are they using? I'm guessing a pretty thick bearing, but that still leaves a ridiculous amount of space.

Is the anchor roller 12mm plate?

Randomly, this is a close up of one of the two panama leads on our stern. It has only been roughly tack welded, but the second photo we took of a 45 footer currently under construction shows how it will finally look:







Is there anything in particular anyone would like to see?

I second Panope.. every picture! But the details I would most love to see are the way they connect the longitudinals to the watertight bulkheads. It seems like a very clever solution from what I have seen so far. Also the rudder and keel framing detail would be fascinating.

Isn't that the way all waterproof bulkheads are built? It looks just like ours (but much neater with the cnc cuts).

Many of them notch out the bulkhead for the longitudinals, then weld the slots up. Others butt the longs to the bulkhead then add gussets. K&M have a neat looking system that is slightly different from others I have seen. Id love to see some pic's of your boats system as well!

Congratulations on your new build of the type of yacht I just love.

May all your change orders be Minor and included in the contract price.:thumbup:


..... I will follow this thread closely

That is how ours were done... I think. I didn't realize that KMs were different.

Of course that was before the PO ran all the cables through the bulkhead... without chafe protection at all... and did I mention they were all home solid core Romex or orange extension cords?

Rudder shaft is 130mm (same as Estarzinger's modified Hawk).

Anchor roller cheeks are 20 mm inner and 15 mm outer.

Thanks Pelagic.

That's a very appropriate blessing for anyone building a boat .

I will make the bulkhead connections the next lot of photos tonight.
Rudder and keel have not yet been started.

You must have the smallest hands in the world! The visual scale is so screwed-up due to the length of the boat, and the heftiness of the scantling chosen. She's going to be awesome!

Did I tell you I was jealous?

Hubbie's beefier hands holding onto the sides of the housing from the other side give the same perspective of size. This housing is substantially larger than the 130mm shaft:

I had a contractor as a client whose philosophy of business was that the bid was to cover over head, and the change orders were the profits. He won a lot of bids, and upsold a lot of change orders.

Very successful he was.
