    Make sure you get it sawn soon - sawyers want green/wet wood as it's much easier on the blade (keeps it cooler).

    We'll she's almost done. Still need to order a propshaft and the SS rub rail. Also can't mount the windshield until she's outside since the door isn't tall enough.
    I have converted the strongback into a wheeled cradle to move her outside.

    Are we going to get pictures of the workshop exit? Are you going to have to crane it out of the backyard?

    Got permission to cross the property behind us, so won't need a crane. It's still going to be an interesting operation though.

    Still hunting for a trailer. In the meantime I did manage to find 24’ of stainless 1” rubrail for a very good price on EBay. Dresses up the boat nicely.
    Now to find another 24’....

    I thought I would turn this rightside up for y'all.
    I love the smell of fresh cut plywood in the morning.

    Not that you ever need this info for this boat, but in an emergency because the engine will pump water so well. The water inlet petcock can be shut off and the hose removed to pump water from the bilge. I know this as a fact.

    Still have the punch list to attend to. I haven’t installed the prop shaft yet, so the engine still isn’t aligned. Waiting until that’s done before everything gets tidied up.

    And thanks for the photo flip. Our hosts image posting sometimes inverts things.

    Yes, I’ll certainly post pics. No crane, fortunately the neighbor behind me doesnt mind me traipsing across his 11 acres to extricate the boat. Went to a party at his place for New Years. Cool house, built In the late 1700’s. He came by to see the boat a few days ago. Loved it.

    Beautiful job!
    I was born on a wooden boat that I built myself.
