Looking good! I was just at Chad's shop the end of July and saw your boat in cut-pieces form...I think they had just unloaded the truck before I had arrived.

Look at those frames, anyone else see a variable deadrise? That's almost unheard of in the current herd of offshore alloy craft.

End of week progress. :beer:

Next week or two - weld the Lift Strips, finish the bracket and then a lot of welding on the hull before it gets rolled over.

Hull is rolled over, fuel tank is finished, starting topside work.

I'll try to get photos up today, having problems getting the attachment(s) into the message for some reason.....

Boat is coming along nicely, aft deck and cabin deck are on, starting on the cabin.
Going out to see the boat in a couple of weeks - looking forward to it!

"Operator error" was the culprit for lack of photo's over the last few weeks, back in action again. :beer:

A boat with a variable deadrise hull, as you pointed out many posts ago!

I'll be going to check on progress again next month - it's mind numbing all the decisions that
have to made when building a custom designed and built boat.

I gotta ask..you dont have to tell..whats this hull likely to cost all said and done? (the aluminum & welding portion only). Looks like a fantastic boat..but looks like over $100K to me (out of my budget!!

Labor and materials for the hull & structure is around $100K

Labor and materials for the electrical, electronics, tankage, heater & stove, Yamaha F350, etc. is around $100K

Plus Naval Architect fee, trailer and all the other misc. items that come up is around $40K
