It's at the builder's location in China with estimated completion before the end of this month.* Sails have just been ordered and need to be made.* Interior wood work and various systems (horn, searchlight, instrumentation, stove, refrigerator, etc.) also need to be completed/installed.

RE: Coot is coming along

So how do you plan on getting her Stateside?

Would you ever think of trying it on her own bottom?

She will be coming on a ship.* Never seriously considered*having the Coot come here on*its own.* A transpacific voyage is beyond*its practical/safe limits.

I have the survey report of the Coot's loading onto the YM Cypress which contains photos.* I'm unable to copy the photos for posting.* If you wish to see them, send me a PM with your email address and I'll forward the report with photos to you.

RE: Coot is coming along

the photos you have posted from time to time where she is on the feeder vessel, for some reason i had the feeling you took those shots yourself?
are you making the voyage with her?

No.* The photos I've posted to date came from the builder.* The latest group of photos which I can't*extract from the surveyor's report, was taken by the independent surveyor.* So to see those photos, you need to directly*receive the entire pdf file which I can send to anyone giving me their email address.

RE: Coot is coming along

Thanks to Pineapple Girl who extracted photos from the inspection report, I'm able to present them here.

Note that swim platform is folded up.

The Coot is presently in YM Cypress's hold, somewhere between Taiwan and LA.

The suspense is building. We voyeurs can hardly stand it. Hope that you post not only pictures of the boat upon her arrival, her unloading and afterward, but also of yourselves as you interact with her.

Wow! She looks great, Mark! Can't wait to see a pic of your smile when she arrives. Will the delivery be natural or are they going to have to medicate you?
