Mick,
Good work so far, hope you can get back into it again soon.

Our chat earlier in the year made me reconsider my design choice, nothing firm yet as still a way from making a call. But Spirited 480 is a nice design and Spirited Designs have been very helpful.

2011 3rd quarter update from us. Solid last month on the boat. Pretty slow first couple of months but.

Borrowed a mates fish eye camera and managed to get the whole boat in one shot for the first time.

Weather is warming up a bit. Good temps for the big laminating job on the cabin roof.

Cheers Jim,

We are enjoying it still. Basically ready to start sorting out the systems to go in the boat. Seems alot of time can be wasted trying to figure out where is the best place to source all the kit. Between working on the boat, working for the $$ for the boat dont seem to have the time for procurement.... Doing all this for the first time you seem to waste alot of time thinking about things that really shouldn't need worrying over bit we will get there I guess.

Not looking to reinvent the wheel. Just want to find a boat I like and copy their systems. Fancy a consultancy gig?

Hi All

Long time no update from us. Bunch of pics here to make up for it.

Still enjoying it and all going good. Days are a bit short and cold in Tas at the moment.

I have 4 hold up areas at the moment:
-Still sorting rudder bearings = back steps are still loose and engine bays are not complete
-Don’t have my main sheet track = back is still of aft cockpit module. Out for qoutes at the moment so should be sorted soon.
-Refrigeration = incomplete corner in galley
-Plumbing = Main and Ensuite Head are basically empty. Really just have to make a start here....

Hope everyone else is smashing out their builds.

Shout outs for Mike and Paul for their efforts on batteries, hatches and solar panels. Cheers guys.

Enjoy
Yeewww Mick

Love your work Mick, you are flying through it. It looks great. You must be able to stand tools up in your resin it must be so cold down there. Keep at it!

Thanks

Hi Paul

The west fast hardener is all good during the days. I took a phone call the other day and and some resin I had mixed up went off on me in not much more than 15 mins. Over night gets pretty cold so I usually put spot lights on any big jobs we do in the arvo to get them touch dry before leaving overnight. Days are a bit short at the moment though. We hardly get any frosts where we live, gold coast of tas!!

ITC

I'm at sea at the moment. I'll grab you some dimensions in a few days. Been a couple of years since we did the design now so can't remember exactly off the top of my head.

Mick
