About Time

It's about time I got some pictures of the boat to date so here they are. As of Saturday night we got the final coat of epoxy in the cabin and 1 coat on the entire cockpit. Lots of small jobs being worked on all at the same time and everything seems to be in a constant state of stickiness. 2 more coats in the cockpit and then more painting. Side decks, bow deck and cabin roof on after that.

The List:
Shape the rudder, seal and varnish
Finish rudder cheek and install
Varnish the center thwart
Shape and seal the Sprit booms
Install the tabernacle
Install side decks
Install bow decks
Install cabin roof pieces
Paint cockpit
Paint cabin
Paint decks
Paint masts and install sail track
Order and install blocks, eyes, fairleads, cleats, ect.
Pick up new trailer (yup, we bought one)

Thats it in a nutshell (I think). Timing is key now so that we don't get stuck with no time to paint something we forgot. 3 weekends left!

Wonderful, I like the large hatches in the cockpit. Good move on the trailer. You could do without a bearing meltdown on the way to Fort DeSoto.
