October Update

Well the weather conspired against us again and we even had an early snow fall on 28th of the month. Because of the cold, I've decided to put off the sheathing work until the spring. With the toe rails more or less finished, I've started working on fabricating the cabin trunk assembly.

First thing is to make the side framing using the template shown in the plans.

Side frame fabrication

In a slight departure to the plans, the rear of the cabin will have a drop in wash board. I'm busy trying some different "mock ups" before I decide on the final design. This should keep me busy in my thinking chair for a while!

Rear of Cabin

More next month.......

Ironsides Floats

Another one hits the water.

CONGRATULATIONS to Steve Yahn on the successful launch of his Paradox "Ironsides" on 16th of October.

A splendid looking vessel. Best wishes Steve.
