    Tentatively the competition is slated to go live Aug 1 or so with submissions due Jan 1. with the initial round of judging March 1, then the top three boats will hopefully be build (in Haiti) at a Haitian boat yard) and do a tour of the country to show them off to the fishermen. So they can choose the final winner.

    The final awards ceremony will likely be May 1 and starting the ramp up to full production the beginning of the summer.

    This is a very tentative schedule and specific dates will change. But it’s a good approximation.

    No decision has yet been made on the drawings required. At a minimum a Lines Plan, Arrangement, and BOM. We’re waiting to finalize the judges before deciding what the submission packet should include. I don’t think we are going to require a complete hydrostatic analysis but I doubt anyone will complain if we get it.
