After working on other people’s boats all week you’d think I’d want to relax and go sailing. But what am I doing on a gorgeous Saturday afternoon? Sweating and working on Project Arcturus. Trying to get ready to race the Middle Bay Regatta September 15th. #projectarcturus#projectboat
⛵️ PROGRESS UPDATE: SV TERA ⛵️ "Before," "During," and DISASTER!! So, we found out that we needed to remove the chainplate knees for the forward lower shrouds, too. It feels like we can't make any progress forward by having to regress each time! The disaster shot is (or rather, WAS) our vanity sink and cabinet area. I just keep thinking that we are never going to get TERA put back together before hurricane season is in full effect. And with weeks and weeks of the endless rain ☔️ that we've been having, it's not helping us one bit, since we need to fill the drilled out holes in the deck with epoxy resin. This will have to take place on both the starboard side and port side of the boat. 4 holes total. Yes, we have our work cut out for us!! That's for sure. But today, we did get the templates for the knees made. Now, we order the teak plywood, fiberglass cloth, epoxy resin, and hardener. It's a dirty job, but someone has to do it!! Lucky us 🍀

So I bought a boat. It's a 21 foot 1988 Steiger Craft. It needs some love, stringers, floor, console, leaning post, electrical and t-top. Any tips or suggestions along the way with this project is greatly appreciated! @centerconsolesonly
ESMERALDA ~ 62ft 4in tug style narrowboat with Boatman's cabin, with 4 berths. Esmeralda has the makings of a lovely boat, the owner chose Colecraft to build him a shell to his own design for him to fit-out during his retirement but unfortunately due to other commitments, his plans never quite came to fruition. The majority of the difficult work has been carried out, the desirable vintage Lister JP3 engine is fully installed and running and there is much of the equipment on board this GAS FREE boat ready to complete the fit-out. If you are looking for a project, handy with basic tools and a paintbrush but still wanting to cruise whilst carrying out the work, then Esmeralda could become the boat of your dreams. Built in 2002 and fitted with a bow thruster. Owner unable to complete fit-out due to illness.
Located at #ABNB in Crick ~ £58,500
After owning my little @haines_hunters #Seawasp for over 10 years it was time to take on another project! So with a bit of cash my way we have swapped the Wasp for a 4.3m #Savage Tinnie with a @mercurymarine 40hp on the back! Lots to do to get it fishable for me but I enjoy the challenge and love seeing it come together ! #projectboat
