With that bottom, next time I see you out sailing I'll probably be looking at your stern !

No kidding! Nice to hear that even a seasoned pro can also underestimate when it comes to fixin' boats! Very impressive project, although as only a wannabe DIY'er I must admit I don't fully comprehend every step in the process. Sure is inspiring when a long-time pro also has the passion to own, sail, & refit such a magnificent vessel.

I'm looking forward to the next phase!

Yea right, I doubt that with your speed machine! Not happening unless I can motor sail I'm guessing...


How's that repair holding up?

Yay, mission accomplished! Spreading inspiration to refit and maybe even a little knowledge is my intention here. Always has been. Now if only I could get people to ask some of the obvious questions posed by my pics and start a real technical discussion to spread better how-to knowledge. Over 5000 views but not many have posted. Lots of other boatbuilders and experienced boat people here, surprised no one wants to argue the merits or demerits of what I'm depicting here, on a thread on CF no less! I suppose I need to post more systems install stuff, seems like many here are more electrician than boatbuilder. That oughta start some discussions! Right now I get more questions by PM than posts here...

To be fair to myself, three months is just what I told the wife before hauling out. I knew better. Frankly, I'm quite sure she wasn't fooled either. There was no budget and no real time limit at the beginning of this project, though if we are going to go cruising this year obviously it has to be done by summer. I had a six month window at the start to make that. Hoping I have time for a months shakedown in the islands. I think we'll make it no problem. If you read the thread from the start you'll note that I think a timeline is silly on a project of this magnitude. It takes what it takes. Sometimes I liken it to being chased by a wild animal. Do you pause and look over your shoulder to see how close that bear is? Hell no, you keep your head down and run as fast as you can and hope you don't get caught! Devoting time and effort and worry to a schedule is time and effort and worry that could have gone into completing the project. There is a finite supply of these things on most jobs. Once your fully committed all you can do is throw a ton of effort at it till its done. The rest is for rich guys.


Glad I could inspire a bit, and I'm looking forward to the next phase myself! Thanks!

Nice. Those are usually properly called waterways. Don't blame me! Haven't even posted any finish work yet. Then you'll really be in trouble!
