I’m getting close.  I need to glue on the rubber gunwale bumpers and then Petey is ready to sail to Florida.

PT11 Reorg

Monday, October 1st, 2012

The shop got too crowded with 2 boats in process, so the SCAMP got archived for now,  and the mobile platform re-purposed for the PT11 build.   The bulkheads on the bench got glued into the hull yesterday.

I’m building a PT11 Nesting Dinghy kit from Port Townsend Watercraft for a client.   Here’s the stitched up hull.   The gunwales get attached tomorrow.

I’m building a small sailboat designed by John Welsford.  It’s called SCAMP and is a project created by Small Craft Advisor magazine.  I’m finishing up the building jig at the moment.

I’m making a cradle for my niece. Here’s a mockup of the bed. I’m starting to glue it up. Only 90 joints to go!

Ready to Roll (Finally!)

The Battery Galley and Footrest are done. The Waeco Refrigerator ought to be able to run for a couple of days off the grid.

I’m heading for Medford for tonight. I think I’ll head over toward the east side of the Sierras tomorrow.
