Definitely not Delta
, I would never work for them. I'm not disclosing where I work because I'm not trying to advertise here and I don't want any confusion in that regard. Unfortunately that really limits the pics I can post because in most of them we are wearing shop shirts with the business name on them, or there are signs, etc. Please don't speculate too much, I don't want the mods to shut this thread down as advertisement. Just trying to spread some knowledge here. Maybe people with similar problems will come up with some of these pics when doing a search on the forum and ask the relevant questions, at least thats my hope.
I have to go way back to find Ice Bear pics but I have lots, some of them are quite interesting. Like building the helicopter landing pad, some of the systems that were installed, etc. But that was just a major refit
of a superyacht, I have much better pics of Cascadia under construction, as I was the only laminator on that build from start to finish. It was also much more technically challenging and interesting from a structural viewpoint, incorporating all the latest techniques in carbon/epoxy construction. A very cool boat and Carl Schumacher's last design. I have also worked on Extra Beat and Tatoosh, as well as all the rest of the McCaw's boats. Many superyachts which spend time in the Pacific come to us for work. I've worked for Paul Allen, Tom Alberg
, and yes, Bill Gates too. Although all of Bills boats are little Mirage powerboats he keeps on the dock
at the Gates manor for guests, he's not into boating
really. Many local marine
artisans worked building Gates manor as well, MAG in particular. It's all timber framed. I worry about posting
pics of these guys boats though, they are all very private, very wealthy, and very litigious. I'll ask some questions and come up with some pics for you guys, though.
Here's Ice Bear under way, and a pic of Cascadia coming back into Shilshole-
