Update

I have been running charters since the last time I posted pictures.

At the shop, they have been trying to get her topsides primed.
I say trying because it has been a monsoon around here lately and it has really killed the progress on getting her painted.

Such is boatbuilding when the boat outgrows the building.

Rain, Rain, Go Away

I have been running charters and have not been to the boat in several weeks.
Besides that, the boat is outside, and it has been a near monsoon since the 4th of July and the rain has been killing the progress of the paint process.

I should have more pictures for you in a week or 10 days.

This week in pictures

This week has been running lights, painting the cockpit, cutting in the bridge for switching, the compass, the bridge pilot control, mounting the floodlights for the foredeck, installing the aft air vents for the engineroom, and installing the propane control system and sniffer in the propane locker. Also wired the galley fridge-freezer.
