How is everyone
Hope y'all well. So i was talking to a couple of mates and with their help decided to start posting here again.
There's a bit to catch up on over the last 7 months so ive created an album for ya'll to see and will be open to any questions pertaining to the build.
Suffice to say progress didn't stop when my posting did.
There's been a couple of changes and i'll start with her name. She is now called "SOLSTICE"... long story but Flic and i sponsored an Orca called Solstice as part of a project protecting Orcas from being put into captivity. We figured we'd name the boat after him for a number of reasons
So basically the hull below the rub rail has been faired from bow to stern and then a couple of barrier coats of epoxy resin has been applied to seal it all off.
Im in the process now of moving up a level and begining the same process from stern to bow from the rub rail to the roof frieze.
On the electrics front, the dash is now completed and i purchased a Lowrance 1Kw bronze thru-hull transducer (which im yet to fit)
by doing work on a mates charter boat i swapped my labour and picked up a cummins/onan GenSet that i may/may not rebuild and fit into SOLSTICE. Engine is fine but the charger bit needs to be rebaked(?) ... havent looked into it yet but it does run and charge so we'll see. I havent allowed for it so i will need to modify the floor to fit it etc etc etc but i'll do the math first. Might just clean it up and sell it yet.
As for the rest of the build its going good. Still don't have a timeline of when it will be finished but i'm getting there.
Ok well as usual it good to get feedback and if you see something that im doing wrong please let me know
