A Bit of This and That … aka … Are We Almost Done?

We may not always get to work on what projects we want *when* we want, but there is always something to be done on this boat

My Awl Grip top coats have been halted due to extreme heat, but we still have plenty to keep ourselves busy! After receiving our rudder back with a new welded posts and some added bushings, Matt’s work on the linear drive is finished and he gets a chance to show you how the entire set-up works.

In a few other small projects, we try to readjust the hard dodger and how it fits onto our posts after we’ve chopped 5″ off them to make room for a flexible solar panel. We’re left with sharper angles for the pads and a lot of scratching our heads, but luckily the good men at Grand Slam Aluminum know how to take good care of us.

Last but not least, we get to properly install our captain’s chair at the nav station once our 2.5″ post has had brackets welded in to secure it to the floor and a bulkhead. Our first real area to sit in the pilot house. 🙂

Cheers from the work yard!
