The relay

The relay is to control the power for the central vac system. The one we had to build because a store bought one wouldn't fit.

Hardtop next, then priming will start. Still to much damn sanding left for my liking.

I think fairing is the worst part of building a boat. I know it's killing me!

Hardtop lifted into place today

I was at sea today, but Alan sent me these pictures of the hardtop in place.

All I can say myself is Wow.

Re: Construction Thread for Custom 45' Cruising Powercat

Interesting info on B&B Yachts with their kit boats.

There has been a lot of discussion re light catamaran dingy availability in USA.
B & B should consider offering a foam/balsa sandwich kit cat dingy with your in house equipt and experience of infusing flat panels and cutting panels. There would certainly be a market in USA..

This is a link to an australian kit cat dingy manufacturer.

Boat Designs and Kits | Spirited News

Tender Catamaran Kits | Tender Catamaran Plans | Ripple Tenders

Discussion on same.

Dinghy and Davits

Catamaran Dinghy

Cheers

Great news clip. I had no idea you guys were into the little sailboats also. Can not wait to see the 45 cat go in the water.
