A Furry Addition

 This weekend we brought home a new furry friend into our lives. Dejah is a rescue puppy picked up on the streets in Clinton, NC. She is 5 months old and has one blue eye. She is very sweet and quiet. We are loving her!
 She loves to be wherever you are.
And she loves WoodenBoat Magazine!

This week at the B and B Yacht Designs Shop in Vandemere, NC we had a misty morning and I snapped some pictures at the dock as the seagulls flew over the glassy creek.

Core Sound 17 'Southbound' gets a weigh in

This week at the shop I finally got around to purchasing a new trailer for my Core Sound 17 'Southbound'. The original trailer was commandeered for the Mosquito Trimaran and I don't want to modify it back to fit the 17.  We took the opportunity to lift her onto the trailer with the tractor and use a newly acquired digital scale to weigh her. Any guesses???

She weighed in at 445 pounds with no accessories. No masts, sails, sprits, rudder, anchor. So all up probably a 500 lb boat.

Here she sits on the new Trailer.

Mandy inspects the welds and declares them to be sound. She says that we may proceed. 

The trailer needs a little adjusting as there is a bit of overhang at the moment but all looks good for many more sailing trips to come.

Starting to look like a Boat

This weekend I glued in the tabernacle assembly and the mizzen mast bast. I also got some work done on the foredeck and the carlins that will support the side deck. Here are parts 12 and 13.
