Keeping on, keepin on

The knees are all bolted in the Samson post and the keelson. It took some planing and fitting to make it exactly what we wanted but I think it was worth it. Strong and sweet to the eye. But, oh, the vacuuming!  The poor shop vac earned its keep that day. 

 The grey/ black water tanks are well underway. They smell of polyester resin abounds throughout. We are making sure to keep everything well ventilated.  One of the great things about fibreglass is that if you can think it ip, you can make it. So these tanks are specifically made for this vessel. That way we can make the best use of the space we have without taking up living space.

This is sort of what it looks like when we're planning what's next. The design of the fuel tanks starts out with a bunch of calculations and cardboard. You'll notice that we have help with our floor work.

It's supposed to be fairly decent temperatures this week so we may get more decking/ structural work done to the hull. Have a great week.
