And So it Begins . . . Knottybuoyz' New Project
 
A lifetime of dreaming and seven years of planning and it all comes down to today! The first pieces being cut by my helper, Andrew.

The ole' boat shed is getting crowded! There's parts stacked up everywhere and I'm not even near the bottom of the stack of plywood. :rolleyes:

I have to go to bed early tonight. I have a date with the Jig Saw tomorrow!

Amy, you better get busy too, what is it? Three weeks till you move aboard? :thumb:

15 days and counting
Ive started taking a few items aboard each time I travel to the boat.
I still dont have 220v or gas connected, or a bed.

Hopefully the guy who programmed the CnC machine measured twice before he cut the puzzle! https://www.cruisersforum.com/images/icons2/tounge.gif

A bed is kinda important, yup. Will the other stuff be hooked up before you move aboard? The weather must be getting nice now though.

Good luck Rick.
It would be interesting to know how many times you say "I HATE F%#&ing BOATS" by the time it's done!:D

Anjou, must be plenty guys prepared to share their bed with you:thumb:, even their 'energy' ;)... maybe avoid the gas...:rolleyes:

Looking forward to watching this from the comfort of anywhere but it the shed with you. That looks like a fun and huge undertaking.:popcorn:
