There will be a long pause in work on the boat while I work with cabinet making in Sweden for two years. Will then return and finish off the last stages of the boat and finally see her afloat. It has have come a long way and yet there is still quite a list of things to do. Rudder, spars and rig, painting, motor installation, tankage, and plumbing, last parts of the interior, sewing cushions , sails etc. By now I have spent about 6500 hours working on on her. I anticipate another 1500 or so. So by the time she is done it will have been four years of work spread out part time over ten years. It's a big project and working by myself and part-time it will take time.


  1. Please cover that work as well!

  2. Fantastic project! Thank you so much for sharing!

    begin working on the boat again?
