Re: Construction Thread for Custom 45' Cruising Powercat

Hi Capt, Nice work Just askin' I'm no pro! Is that hard top just suported by the two posts at the back? Are the posts solid fibreglass? That thing would catch a fair bit of wind I bet, but I'm guessing it's fairly light?

The aft supports are cored with foam and coosa, and are well glassed.
The front will be supported with 4 aluminum supports with a cross brace between the outside one and inside one on each side.

It is rather light for it's size, around 375 lbs.

Hurricane Arthur

We are cleaning up after our visit from Hurricane Arthur.

My house was dead center of ground zero, but have nothing wrong besides a yard that looks like a bomb went off in it. Got power back last night after 25 hrs.

Unlike Hurricane Irene, that put 5' of water in the shop at B&B in Aug or 2011,
there was no damage at the shop or to the boat.

So back to work next week, and more pictures as we get in the short rows.

Diving pictures

I am only working part time on the cat right now, as I am running the Midnight Express for Olympus Dive Center this summer.

We are starting to run daily so I will post some diving pictures to keep you entertained.

Heavy weather today, so you have some pictures

Couldn't go diving today due to the souwester.

Went to work instead.

Finishing up the wiring in the dash, and the fairing goes on.

Priming the bridge and working on details

I am offshore the next 3 weeks beginning tomorrow, so I worked at the shop a couple of days this week.

They finally got enough of a break in the rain today to prime the bridge, and I worked on tying up a few loose ends in the wiring.

If it would just quit raining everyday maybe they could get the damn thing painted.

We have all reached that 4th stage of boatbuilding, just wanting it to end.

We are are ready to go for a boat ride.
It won't be nearly as long as it has been.
