Keel Lifting Winch In Place02/08/2012
Well, its not the first time she has been in place as it was temporarily used to test the keel, but now the winch is in place and not likely to move for a very long time. It can be serviced in place and I hope the only time I have to remove it is never.
Water Tight Boat!... well some of it.02/04/2012
The pilot house windows have turned out great. Its a job thats been put off for far too long, but now its done. Time to turn our attention to other things.
A huge amount of work went into getting to this point... it looks like such a simple job. Nope, more time consuming than one would think. The outside bead is not the only thing holding the glass in, its just eh visible part. This was then smoothed with a filleting tool. Next post the end result.
We're soon going to place the pilothouse windows! You might ask, why did we leave it for so long? First weather didn't permit, then other projects got in the way, but now we'll get it done. By monday all should be in place.
