    This thread is incredible. I'm glad I'm self employed because any other boss would have fired me for my production the last hour. I am assuming you are somewher on the Chesapeake right? I saw a barge/shanty/whatever you call it boat up in Maine and I didn't take a picture, but the folks on it looked so relaxed! Is there a target launch date or are you like me and on no real schedule?

    Yes I am on what is called the Lower Bay about 50 miles from the southern part and interestingly the widest part which is 19 1/2 miles. There is nothing but shoal waters to the north of us on our side of the Bay. This is where we enjoy cruising and the houseboat will be good for that. As far as completion, I am hoping for October but after trying to retire for a year and a half my Son and I have gone into the construction business and I am busier than I have been in 5 years making the houseboat less of a priority.

    I cut several controls into the console. Compass, shift/throttle, tach and switch.

    I see a good place for a brown bottle holder.

    I've decided to slow down on my charge to get my sailboat done. I'll finish it by spring. I've been 75% complete for 6 months if you know what I mean. I'm building a B & B Core Sound 20 Mark III for some trailer sailing adventures. When I get down your way someday I'd like to see her in person. Beautiful!
