So Much Cool Stuff Today
We got a lot done today. I cut and we got painted all the medallions for the stern roofline trim. We finished all the interior paintwork. We cut and painted the "plug" that will go into the sleeping loft floor after the mattress goes up tomorrow
The ladder going in.
But mostly Im delighted with the galley. We used some simple drip edge tin to create a sliding door setup that matched the tin of the hearth.
The doors are just luan stained with gunstock oak stain, but I think its a wonderful and functional look. Sorry about all the crap on the counter .....

The boat moving companies around here (PNW) typically use trailers with hydraulic arms that support the hull. This type of trailer might not fit your hull adequately.
You might consider jacking up the hull, lowering it onto a flatbed trailer, and driving to a boatyard the has a travel lift to launch the boat. It's not expensive to go one-way into the water, since they don't have to block up or pressure wash the hull as in a typical haulout.
The best choice would be a jack up type pontoon boat trailer that comes up between the pontoons to lift the craft. The trouble with flatbedding this thing is: it's tall. Add it's height to a flatbed and you could be looking at 16 feet.ReplyDelete
