Looking like a boat again

Could it be possible that repairs might be coming to completion?

After months of problems, we now have progress.

The stern pulpit from Tayana had to be remade, as the first pulpit was a ridiculous piece of crap. It should never have been made, nor ordered. Nevertheless, the new unit is here and needs some adjustments. But weather permitting should be on in the next week or two.

The mast is the third mast delivered by Selden. The first two masts were damaged in shipping, as the shipper, Carolina Logistics decided to break the seal cut all the lines and pile the mast sections off to the side while they could put more stuff on the truck and make a little extra money on the side. Problem is, Selden paid for the whole truck, and it's fraud. Not to mention $40K of damage for each of the two masts. Selden tried to change shippers, but only changed shipping brokers. Sure enough, the lowest bid was the cheating, fraudulent Carolina Logistics for the second time.

The third mast is finally in the boat, as the yard had to put me on the back burner and finish other projects. Now, we're in full gear moving forward.

This is the stern pulpit ordered from Tayana, in Kaohsiung. Note the short legs in the corners, supported by plywood. Note the excessive rake aft. Note the gate with the hinges opposing, meaning it can never be removed.

Problems mean ordering another one, another six weeks before arriving, and the possibility of them screwing it all up again.

I hate problems.

Shipping damage

17 August 2016
Well, after six weeks of waiting for the mast and rigging, the mast was damaged in shipping. So, after some discussion and evaluation, the best course is to get another new mast that ISN'T damaged in shipping.

So, another six weeks.

Shinny paint, shinny mast...

Month five

For the past three months, I haven't been able to get on the all-too-full flights to get to Portland to see the boat. So I only have photos and invoices from the yard showing progress.

Things are moving forward. It's out of the paint shop, and the paint looks brilliant.

That's all I know.

Since I cant get out by plane, I'll be driving out sometime this month to bring all the parts in time for the mast and rigging arrival. Hopefully, I'll get to see the boat before it's done....
