    I'm not to sure about that lol,,,,,,,

    Yesterday I finish all the cabinet doors for the upper cabinets and most of the doors for the lower ones. My girlfriend came by today and ask why are you working on the master stateroom and not finishing the lower cabinets in the galley, I told her it was the cold coming and I wanted to seal some things in the bedroom and she tried to tell me it was my OCD. I said they both have to be done does it really matter that I make it all come together at the same time. At least Tim and Bill were working on the outside.

    Great effort ! Any pics of the machinery, was it all in good condition ? What about the underbody shape and stern gear.... What type of rudder, how many props. Too many pics of happy looking people ;)

    Did you have the original plans and stability information.

    For a boat that size you will want to watch those dreadnaught pattern anchors, they hold well in mud but they lack fluke area for good holding in sand, when the wind pipes up they will drag slowly and inevitably.

    Cheers
