Feeling Lots More Hopeful

Thanks to Ed's help, we now have all hull panels and rub rails dry-fit, waiting to be attached permanently!

She looks a mess at this point in the build process. But it comes with the territory; the mess is a good one.

Feeling Hopeful

While I may be the prime "mover and shaker" on this project, and the one who's put in the most hours, I've not done it alone. Having Ed's help last week got us much closer to permanently attaching the hull sides.

That will mark a major milestone, providing a lot of hope that this boat will be getting wet soon.

Continuing Construction Progress

The work I have done recently runs down the center of the boat. From fore to aft: the bits were permanently installed, the main hatch rooftop structure is dry fit, the companionway boards and trim are completed, a structure for the upper gudgeon to hold the rudder at the correct angle was installed.
