    Work in progress

    Hi all
    Just thought I'd update the thread to what is currently happening on the build.
    Thankfully Ive been able to progress slowly but surely going on for over three years give or take. Even so there is still a huge amount of work to do although I can now say that all things being equal the project will be completed.
    I will update on a more regular basis going forward.
    This thread was started by Manie who kindly designed the cat and has always stayed involved throughout the build.

    Jules its really looking good. Congratulations on a job well done.

    I must come down and see you again but I am so overworked and overstressed with the TEN project at the moment that I don't even have time to run my business properly.

    Anyway it's really great to see you are at it and keep up the good work.
    Best of luck buddy and I will see you soon.

    Still at it...

    Hi there. Thank you. She has turned out really well. Not on the water yet. It has been a big project, bigger than I imagined at the start. But worth every bit of effort. The final push is the hardest. Still, she's there - I can touch her -not just dream any longer.

    So go for it and good luck.

    Jules

    Looking Good !!

    Jules I am launching Celebrator (the ten) early May at Dick Manten.
    He will do the COF - buoyancy and SAS registration for me.

    I will keep you posted, please come down and have a beer with me.
    I should be there for 2 or 3 days before I leave for Mosselbay.
    It will be nice to catch up with you for a change

    Hey Manie
    Thank you. She is coming together. Those stainless carrier supports have taken time to get right. not something you can buy off the shelf. I think the placement of the outboards was right too - as you originally suggested.

    Good to to hear you're so close to launch and I'll certainly be there. Lots for me to learn about the reg process too.

    Thanks to everyone for the interest and encouragement.
