    You left the staples in. Are they nonferrous? I just watched a video on utube at the weekend, some guy spent an entire day picking them out. Maybe those plastic nails are good for this also?

    The vast majority of the staples used were plastic staples. Not so much to avoid rusting - as these things are buried deep inside the wood layers behind epoxy, glass etc. and therefore will never experience salt water - but because you just sand over them in the fairing process without affecting the sanding paper or any tools.

    But I remember there were some locations where ordinary metal staples used when higher holding power was requested that could not be delivered by the plastic variety. In this case the pressure of the staples gun was adjusted to sink them deep into the veneers so that they also could be left in the wood without harming later coming tools.

    The next step now: Deck and cockpit trim. After all the witheness a wooden boat is appearing again:






    And the rudder is put together, quite a hefty piece of boat:



    If you look closely you can spot the lever to connect the autopilot ram to.

    Hi Thomas!
    Stunning, progress, I haven't been here WB couple of years.
    Final touch, little pluming and wiring, next summer sailing!!!
    Maybe three years ago I build pram too. (Matin venesivut - Sivu 10 - Puuvene.net ) it became little too heavy to singlehanded lift on deck.

    Yes, Matti, this is the plan. Progress has been quite good recently, we want to splash her very soon!

    We have been busy last months trying to finish the boat for splash end of May. I didn't document every step, but there are some intermediate results I can share.


    Nav Station with pilot berth.

    An oiled floor made from from hemlock:



    Then the electronics went in: Here the switching panel with a small control display:

    Then engine room insulation: I tried to close even the smallest gaps, nothing more annoying than a loud diesel engine!



    And then chain plates and portholes: Looking like a proper boat now!





    Teak framed hatchways, both for the main cabin as well as for the fo'c's'l. Here in raw form



    and here with all the bling bling:

    Then a waterline was scribed



    and we started copper coating the boat. Not much of a results after the first round of rolling



    but notice in the meanwhile the boat hanging in slings from the crane only to avoid blind spots at the hull: Nerve wracking!



    After 4 hot-in-hot applications the result looked much better:

    The base for the spray hood was fabricated and try fitted to the garage of the main hatch:





    What is left now? Not very much. Electrics, electronics, hydraulics, engine and fuel system, is all finished. There are some final wood working details in the cabin to be done, then some work on the deck as anchor winch, rails, solar and finally some work on the mast which by now still is 16 sided. And then we will be ready to go, D-day is end of May, can't believe it!!

    Looking absolutely stunning Thomas. I especially like the way you’ve done the interior with all the white and varnished trim.

    Did Covid slow the works much?

    A lovely looking boat with lots of fabulous workmanship - well done :-)

    Remember to tighten the clamp where the shaft meets the gearbox so that the propellor spins when the gearbox does - a friend of mine omitted this on the 38' Laurent Giles he built and had an embarassing episode at launch time - but then he went on to sail around the world for several years so all was fine after some spanner work!

    Also suggest adding lots of grab rails (short ones) round the inside of the cabin especially when you go up/down the companionway - my motor/sailer had lots of them and they saved me a few nasty potential falls.

    Enjoy the splash. Regards Neil

    Inspiring build!
    The efforts to mitigate noise from the engine room are a very good investment.
