And So it Begins . . . Knottybuoyz' New Project

A lifetime of dreaming and seven years of planning and it all comes down to today! The first pieces being cut by my helper, Andrew.



When it's all said and done hopefully we'll end up with something like this....



Standby, this is going to get messy!

Not to make you nervous or anything but we will be watching (As long as you take lots of pics that is).

Re: And so it begins

I'm pooped!

The ole' boat shed is getting crowded! There's parts stacked up everywhere and I'm not even near the bottom of the stack of plywood.







I have to go to bed early tonight. I have a date with the Jig Saw tomorrow!

Amy, you better get busy too, what is it? Three weeks till you move aboard?

Re: And so it begins

Ive started taking a few items aboard each time I travel to the boat.
I still dont have 220v or gas connected, or a bed.

Hopefully the guy who programmed the CnC machine measured twice before he cut the puzzle!

A bed is kinda important, yup. Will the other stuff be hooked up before you move aboard? The weather must be getting nice now though.

Re: And so it begins

Good luck Rick.
It would be interesting to know how many times you say "I HATE F%#&ing BOATS" by the time it's done!

Anjou, must be plenty guys prepared to share their bed with you, even their 'energy' ... maybe avoid the gas...

Ataboy Rick!

Can't read too good, so ya'r gonna have ta post lots of pictures.

And don't forget the coins between keel and stempost as she's laid. French coin minted between 1440 and 1456 found hidden in keel of the Newport Ship
