    Thanks Wojo and Andrew,

    Construction of the spars won't happen until next year but I need to make some preparations this spring. There are a few details to work out yet, but the spars, rigging loads, chainplates and overall geometries have been designed. I need to move a few chainplates and fabricate/install a couple heavier ones. I also want to extend the rubrail all the way aft before she goes into the water permanently.

    The plan is to get the chainplates, rubrail and diesel installed this spring/summer and then get her off the hard and up into her slip hopefully by late summer.

    Thanks Wojo,

    Looks like you and I will both be dealing with the engine this spring.

    I'm helping my son bring his car down to California, then flying back next week. When I get back, I'm looking forward to installing this guy.

    Good Idea.

    I'm working on a letter right now.


    Dear US Navy,

    I know my son is to report for SAR training on Friday but if you would be so kind, I could use him for a couple extra months. See - I have this boat project and it needs a new motor. That motor's pretty heavy and my son is really strong. So, if you could just wait a couple months I would really appreciate it.

    Thanks Much,
    Connor's Dad.



    Think it will work?

    Travis.

    If you attach pics of boat they'll probably send a few sailors and it'll be in before you know it

    Father / son road trips are the best! Enjoy it
    Just got home from work. Tomorrow my weekend starts - going golfing with my brother in law
    So question about the motor: what's the gear reduction, is it already in transmission or have to be added to the set up ?

    The rig is beautiful. Is that mizzen mast in the middle of everything though? Looking forward to seeing how she turns out. Keep up the great work.
