In this case I feel no need nor desire to be the "winner" :help:

We want to look on the map.

It's Hopetown in the Abacos. And the lighthouse is the worlds last clockwork powered kerosene lit light. It is all cast iron, made in the UK in late 1880's and floats on a bath of mercury. You (I) can push the light with one finger even though it weighs 4000lbs (I think)

We have been here many times over the last 15 years. I draw and do boat projects during the week. And at weekends teach junior sailing in 420's, Sunfish and Optimists. I also race on cruisers and the Abaco Rage, a traditional Class A Bahamian sloop (check it out here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5DF2VSOxoXU) and race Sunfish.

Well, progress update on the build.

1. We taped one of the in floor gutters to the hull; the other two require ladder work.
2. We vac-laminated two of the four deck panels that will close the hull on Friday.
3. Spoke with Furuno dealer about electronics.
4. Spoke with Richard via email about some cabin redesign.
5. Holed the port hull for the beam socket and holed the garage interior for the beam insertion; still have siding, but 30" of snow out there.

Monday I meet with the surgeon and expect to be cleared to go up ladders. He told me no ladders until this meeting.

Next week, we will work on various smaller projects and the two bigger projects of laminating the beam sockets and building the large deck sections to enclose between BH3 to BH5. March will be finalizing all small projects and April will be cabin build start. Once the cabin base is done; the starboard hull is going outside.

No pictures or videos as our outputs were poor this week to weather and hip.

I wish you the best with your health. There are so many pages to your thread and I don't have as much time for these things as I would like. Please forgive me if this sounds stupid, but please tell me what boat you are building. All your work looks first rate. Thanks for being so generous with your time sharing your work in such detail.

I am building the Richard Wood's Skoota 32 demountable powercat.

The designer's site is here.

Today, I had very little time. I trimmed the two deck panels laminated last week and to fit. They are actually jist the inside of a cabinet, but required first in the order of operations.

So with a ladder in the pictures does that mean you got the all clear for being on ladders? Hope so and you are healing well. How is the conversations going with Richard and cabin lay out? I am excited to start seeing mock ups! Also the snow is still keeping you from finishing a cut in the workshop wall? 8O If I am reading that correctly. We don't have snow here but I am hoping the snow melts soon! :)
