Blood Sun

Things are beginning to heat up in Bermuda with the new America’s Cup catamarans practicing ahead of next months round robin sail off, followed by the Louis Vuitton Cup, and finally the 35th America’s Cup between the Louis Vuitton winner and Team Oracle USA.

Boat Name and Logo

The port outboard hull side received a coat of arctic white with a little dark blue pigment in it. I’m not sure how much difference it will make compared to the cabins and deck which are untinted. The crease in the hull at the sheer automatically creates a different shade of color between the cabin [...]

Attacking the Topsides

It was possible to make a time lapse video with a couple of problems. To get the mast and crane in the pictures, I shot in portrait mode. Plus I was using Canon’s “L” size for the photos. The video application is looking for landscape mode and a smaller sized frame. So, the video comes out [...]

furball Catamaran Dinghy

Richard and Gill launched their little catamaran dinghy that Richard built from plans. They named it “furball”, as that which is spat out by the larger cat-amaran. Here is a link to more photos of it:

Hatches

Capn Andy/Cold Fall Weather
Merry Christmas to me and to Kaimu. The fellow next door, Capn Bill, was carrying a large heavy box and I asked him what it was. It was a pair of Bomar hatches that he said were too big and he’d have to resell them. He bought them from eBay for a very low price. They fit a 25 1/2 inch square opening, so they are indeed large hatches. Tinted acrylic with cast aluminum frame, new old stock.
.
I was going to build new wood and acrylic hatches to replace those over the two twin bunks forward in each hull. The hatch opening is 24 inches. I took one of Bill’s hatches on board and laid it over the existing hatch. Nearly a perfect fit. I would have to trim about 1/2 inch all the way around the opening. I bought the hatches from Bill and gave him a little profit as well. Now all the money made on the yacht delivery was spent. The photo is of one of the hatches.
