Good work. I assume you will brace between them and use a center hatch cover to access the mechanicals.

Epoxy filleted into place. All bare wood is getting epoxied. My filleting skills will get better....

The holes are just to look cool....

More than just looking cool, they are conduits to run electrical and plumbig through.

I'm putting insulation in only because for under the floor it's my only chance to do so, and its not a big effort/cost. I'm not sure if I actually would insulate the rest of the boat.

After reviewing how much marine plywood I ordered from WestWind, it was clear that I didn't have enough, and I cheaped out and bought "normal" (not marine) plywood for the main cabin and back deck floors. A bit of a regret maybe (oh, the shame!), but I justified to myself that it wasn't that big of a deal as true (and nice looking) marine plywood isn't really needed for these two applications. By buying local plywood, I could progress further before needing another order (and costly shipping), and would be able to better assess my needs as I would be further along....

Cardboard templating in progress!

Hi there,

Are you going to keep it in the water over winter when you're finished, or are you going to haul it back to your shed for the winters?

I ask because when winter temperatures drop to -15C or so in Kitimat, the warmth of the Pacific Ocean compared to the air radiates quite a bit of heat through the hull into the engine room. So much so that the PO of our boat said he never heated the engine room in winter...I thought that was way crazy, so have put heat down there, just in case.

It seems the areas which radiate the most cold are hull sides above the water, and decks.

Nice to have a blank slate where you can do what you want!!

Wonder how they insulate boats in Iceland or Norway...

Hi MurrayM.

Good question. I'm thinking I would get a trailer and haul it back every winter. The issue is that the boat is big enough that it may not be a straightforward process of just backing the trailer into the workshop. Also, a trailer for this size boat isn't cheap - not sure if this is the direction I want to go, but we shall see.

My crystal ball calculations are starting to show that I may need to do strange things to get the completed boat out of the workshop. But being able to fuss over a boat in the winter whilst in a warm dry environment is tempting.


I have had this boat (prior to this project) moored over the winter (at Port Edward), without a heater (and no shore power either!) . If I did moor it over the winter now, I'd certainly consider some heat/dehumidification.

front deck

The original deck was flat, and poorly secured by the center post. The deck flexed/wiggled when walked on, and the flexing prevented a watertight seal by the centre support (anchor line) post.

Arching the deck gives better rigidity, strength, provides more headroom, and of course, curves look boaty/sexy.

There was still some very slight deck movement (rotational on boat long axis), so I put additional bracing. More support will be provided by additional work progress.

Aluminum frame for the engine. This will allow me to work around it (and walk over it) and might be a good thing to attach sound damping to as well.

update #x

This fibreglass piece was recycled/repurposed from the old version of the boat, and now is the front of the fore cabin. Still not quite in the right place, but getting there.....

What you can't see is a frame holding this in place until it gets epoxied into place.

Anchor and windlass mounting pads.

In hindsight, these could and should have gone on after the foredeck had been glassed.
