Some Over View Photos

The boat got cleaned up last week. It was supposed to be for visitors but perhaps it was more for me as it was a nice moral booster to see the boat all cleaned up and looking quite finished. I thought I would post a few photos.

Genoa track from Port Townsend Foundry is finally installed

Scuttle is finally done with lid hinged, port lights in, gasket and paint and varnish complete.

Looking down the scuttle to the sitz tub and workbench 

Still need to install the windlass

Still need to paint the cabin roof

Looking down the companionway. Double bunk to stb and galley to port. 

Normal state of things. Everything covered up with drop cloths and cardboard.

I needed to get away and there was a good weather window finally. Headed up north to the Mt Washington area. Set up a base camp and skied and snow shoed about for four days. Very relaxing (for the mind).


  1. Beautiful overview of your boat. Really nice seeing the layout and how things are oriented.

    I'm eagerly awaiting the day she is afloat, as I'm sure you are too.

    1. Thank You for the support Dan.

      Felt good to uncover the boat and see everything. I would really like to try to make a little video as I get closer to finishing as it will give a better perspective than photos.


    2. I agree. I've been looking at doing more with videos on my blog. Pictures show only so much that doesn't come out in videos.

    3. Boat Blog ? If you would like please post a link here in comments. Always interesting to see other work/sailing.

    4. I've never seen a more BEAUTIFUL, meticulously implemented boat building project in my life! It's been fun watching your progress. Wishing you all the best...Norsea 27 owner
