Racing against Winter!

Well I finally stopped  nit-picking and got the cabins finished out. I still have to varnish each of the middle sections, but I needed to get on with it. As of right now, both hulls have decks and cabin tops installed. I have to do some interior fillets tomorrow in each, however. The outside is so much easier to work on! I'm hoping to be putting some glass on her within the next week or so. I have to go to two months of work out of town for Oct and Nov, which is really setting me back. Hopefully Beto will be swimming around mid December. If I can get her glassed and mostly faired before Oct 7th, we should be in good shape. Fairing is going to be pretty basic. She is not going to be a showboat or anything! I want to get it on and get sailing. Plans are for forest green topsides and beams, and white decks with grey KiwiGrip non-skid. I feel you never want to rush a boat, though. (Port Cabin Top is not glued down in photos)

  Great lines on these Wharram Boats!
