Back in the saddle

Posted By on May 5, 2013

Sorry it’s been so long since we’ve updated.  We’ll be doing monthly updates very soon now.  In the meantime, here are some progress shots from January 2013.


This is the main skylight at Jeff’s workshop in California.  Pretty impressive, I’d say!

The boat is almost entirely framed now.  The last frame will go in over Memorial Day weekend, and there will be much celebrating to mark this milestone.



The shape of the boat is very clear now.

More soon!

    Tom, we missed ya! Highly anticipate further additions. Love that amazing skylight, and there are some lovely lines on this vessel, yes?

    Really enjoying the blog, don’t suppose you have any more images of the carved works? I am building a comprehensive ship carving pinboard and would love to include them.

    Hi Andrew, I’ll try to get some pics next time I’m at the boat. Much of the nicer woodwork is in storage or being restored, but I’ll see what I can do.

    Looking forward to the next update. As I am sure many are. I am impressed with the work so far.
