More a dark white rather than a light grey if that makes any sense.
We are going to wrap the hull in a colour called Matte Copper Metallic.
Wasn't my first preference but the hull wasn't true enough to my eye in a few areas to leave unpainted.

yeah that makes sense, thats a sweet colour for the hulls so wrap rather than paint is that cheaper/more resilient than paint?

Wow - she's going to look *sweet* - you must have trouble getting to sleep each night. Can't wait to see her in the water.

I don't think the wrap will wear better than good paint.
We expect to replace it every five years or so.
It is only on the outside of the hulls, the tunnel and transom is unpainted.
The inspiration to wrap was this Schionning, love the look.

Closer and closer. I really like the relationship between the sheer and the roof line.

Decided to make the master a king size.
The walk around would have been restricted by head room on the forward side anyway.

LOVE the view from the helm position. And many happy hours will be spent in that king–sized bed.

HI
Nice build, I built a power cat 5 years ago.
Glad to see you have forward facing windows, makes the boat much more liveable and extra space over the helm.
We extend the roof all the way back to the rear of deck which has become our main living area. We spend about 7 months a year on board.Click image for larger version

I asked for side scan on the sounder but had no idea the transducers were so big. Might add a bit to the fuel burn.

40' displacement powercat

Some questions about your side scan transducer mounting:
1: is there any chance of interference on your side signal from the keel, or did you calculate clearances?
2: is it mounted in your lazarette space with a watertight bulkhead?

The thought of catastrophic failure upon hitting an object is scary. Iíve even considered mounting such a large unit off the transom like a fishing boat, for that reason.

Perhaps have a small ice horn welded in front of it for a degree of protection.

There are two transducers because of the keel placement. The signal should be fine.

It's in the engine bay.
That far back from the bow and given the proximity of the keel it is unlikely to ever get a direct hit from debris. Anything is possible I guess.
There were limited options for placement given the built in fuel tanks and the need for room for travel lift strops etc.

The interior is in disarray with wiring at present so a couple of exterior shots.
Windows are all installed.

That's a wrap.
Way darker than on the sample patch offered. It will be interesting when out in the sunlight.
I quite like it.

There was some issue with the 120A alternators so they have been upgraded to 160A. I hope the bracket is strong enough.

The 160A are for the Lithium house bank.
The 80A you can see are the standard Yanmar for the start batteries.
I did visit this week to check progress but the boat was all masked to spray non skid on the roof and foredeck. Not much to see.
