Thanks! It's been a long process but it's almost complete.

Alas, a boat is never 'complete'. It is a process.

Always it is 'almost'.

Enjoy your beautiful boat for many many years.

Could be a Nauset 36. Nauset did the layup on our boat and Shannon finished it.

You have a beautiful Nauset 36, based on the Royal Lowell designed Bruno 35, and as finished by Shannon, who are known for their well built boats (mostly sail).

I am noticing it thanks to your gallery coming by on the top scroll.

I would be interested in learning more of the story on the extensive core replacement you found you needed to do, particularly given the good reputations of both builders.

I would also love to see some pics of the insides of your boat as well.

Also, FWIW, the other boat noted above I believe is a Wilbur 38, another beauty.

Thanks, CptnPete. The primary cause of the wet hull and deck was the failure of Shannon to properly bed the the through hull and deck fittings. All the fittings on the starboard side, transom, flybridge deck and side decks allowed water to get in the core. Shannon sold us the boat as a hull up refit (which Shannon didn't complete)with a new boat warranty. Given their reputation, a survey didn't seem necessary. Wrong! When I got the boat down to MD, I discovered the true extent of the core damage. Interesting, there was a Shannon 53HPS getting a new bottom core due to bad through hull bedding and a Shannon 43 which had just had an incomplete Shannon refit.

Thanks, not what one would expect from the Shannon folks. Glad you got it all fixed. I look forward to looking at the pics but am unable to make the link work by clicking nor cutting and pasting.
