Magtig Manie,

Jy is seker die vinnigste bootbouer wat ek ken.
My hoed is af.

You must be the quickest builder I know. My hat is off to you.

Excellent job Manie B. This is so much fun. I hope we all will be able to watch your progress all around the world. Will we be able watch a signal position from your boat online?

Good luck with the work at hand. The boat looks great and it seems that you've thought everything out very carefully. Would actually be very nice if you'd write few words about the planning of the layout, but only if you have the time and energy to do so.

Breaking News



You saw it FIRST on Boatdesign.net

A 3m micro yacht - that's 2m for the "bed/bunk" for the forward "dry" cabin and 1m for the aft "wheelhouse" which could get rain if the main hatches are open.

Anyway I just turned 62 (28 February) at the moment I'm drinking Gin and Tonic (missus is not happy) and tomorrow I'll do the whole blog and internet and YouTube thing.

Farkit maybe I'll get my mojo back ad start advertising on "BikiniDare" for crew. Just for those of you that like boats, beer and babes


Now is not the time the get serious, lets celebrate and please have one on me

The program is now she gets the lid on (deck) then rolled for outside glassing - back on her feet so that I can start with the "roof"
and then rolled again to do the keel and install the second "skin" that will encapsulate the 70mm of floatation.

Enjoy boys and girls I know that there are many of you all over the world that loves this stuff. Set your inner child free.

Manie, you are a boatbuilding juggernaut. Incredible progress. WOW!

It made me think of a name for your boat. A contraction of Aquaman and Juggernaut.

AQUANAUT

Perhaps, that is reserved for the "naut" on the inside. Keep it up.

Thanks guys. Work is progressing well and the next blog post will be with the deck on and the work on the "roof" is in full swing. A hell of a lot of things are happening now with the electrical installation and the technical issues. I will post more pics soon.
