It nice to have choices. Sometimes wish I had more speed options.

If interested, I'm actually watching the ocean-going progress of the boat delivery here: https://www.vesselfinder.com/?imo=96...ampaign=buffer

It is interesting to see these lanes of commerce that exist out there on the ocean.

Are things progressing towards delivery as expected?

Will you share with us the process from ship arrival, through to taking possession and mooring at your home dock, please?

What does Hyundai require for running-in the new motor?

Best of Luck,

Jeff

So where is the actual boatbuilding done? I'm assuming Asia. I don't much care, first ones were built in BC, last one I know of was built here in Anacortes. Tooling is now a long way from home.
Good luck with your new boat, looks good, sounds like the changes/upgrades from Camano era are substantial. Lot of boat in a little package.

A container is shipped from the US to build the boat.

Ship stops in Canada tomorrow and then arrives Seattle on Tues/Wed.

I'll be taking pics as the delivery takes place. There might be live video of the ship offload on the Helmsman Facebook page. Typically the boat is pulled off the delivery cradle after being craned into the water. Then towed out to deeper water and tied up alongside. Sometimes the boat is started under its own power and comes in under its own power. Sometimes the boat is towed in all the way through the locks to the dock (depends on the charge state of the batteries).

Other than that, the Hyundai just requires being kept within an RPM range for a set amount of time after initial start. The engine was actually run in a test pool just prior to loading for delivery.

Watch on Facebook!

The build was done close to Taiwan in China. Same original tooling was acquired and then augmented even on the exterior. Curved glass is used forward. Interior is totally different with new molds.

Biggest improvement is the separate head and shower which my wife loves.

Is the ship Kmarin Atlantica, aka Hanjin Mar? I fly right over Vancouver on approach. Always looking down at the ships. If so I'll keep an eye out...

I just saw this thread.

My parents had a Colvin junk-rigged Gazelle for many years. We sailed her all over the northeast, a trip to Bermuda and back, then from New England to Newfoundland then France, then back again via the Canaries and Bermuda home. A solid, capable little boat. They also did much of the Great Loop with the boat, and down to the Bahamas and back.

Then they got a trawler.

That is exactly right! How did you know that?! At first I could not find the ship because Hanjin went recently bankrupt and Maersk leased it. I think it will still say Hanjin Mar on the vessel.

Google helped me. :-). I will be flying over Vancouver tomorrow evening. I always sit on the starboard side, so I'll have a look.

Mine was gaff rigged. I called Mr. Colvin a few years ago and boy is he a handful. He lives down in Florida close to the canal.

Looking fwd to the pics of her arrival, David. You must be as nervous as an expectant father!

Best of luck in the "berthing" process.

Ended up taking a later flight. Too dark to see or take photos . Sorry.

You must feel like a kid on Christmas Eve.
