I'm building a house. Trying to refit a new to me Sceptre 41 and barely keeping my head above water. Hows the boat going?

building a light, long and low powered 50 ft powercat in Brisbane.out of Kiri epoxy composite. Structures done and primed.. motors shafts and rudders are in, just most of the fit out left. I like 6mm gaboon ply and white shiny paint. Light and relatively maintenance free.

Hope your havin' fun with your Easy

Dave

I'm rebuilding a 42 foot Cascade cutter named Casual. Have redone floors, keelbolts, bulkheads, cabin top and am now redoing the cockpit. Have made one glass fuel tank, rebuilt the engine and trans. I'm using epoxy and plywood over standard wood boat construction. The hull is glass and the encapsulated keel is steel, fin keel, spade rudder.

Hi Knottybuoyz, I am trying to get that sorted as we speak. Unfortunately we only got our first home computer and digital camera 3 months ago [bloody ludites ], so all of the early pics and cruising and build pics of last cat are on old format.
Hoping to be able to get paper photos scanned to disc at Kmart or similiar outlet.
Any suggestions gratefully received.

Have fun
Dave

Hey knottybouyz, got a few more pics in my album but looks like that page is running ouy of room, or does it keep getting longer or is there somwhere else where they should be put. Any advice would be good,

Dave

P;S had a look at your album and reckon it just goes into another page,makes sense.

Well it's not an entire boat project, just a project on a boat. I have just finished a new timber laminated wheel and pedestal(I have a picture of them in the gallery).
I am now in the process of fitting seating around the aft deck and the pedestal has been fitted in the middle of it all.

Thanks. Once I get the seating looking good, I'll post a photo of the lot together.
