    Finally Done.
    Radar is Operational.
    I have grown to love this boat.
    The USCG would do routine rollovers just to train recruits.
    She could also survive a pitchpole!!
    They don't do that anymore as a rollover would cost over 10 K US
    The tragic demise of 44300, February 12, 1997, in she which survived three roll overs and a beaching with the engines still running๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    Thankyou Stephen, Rick, JB,
    for your kind words.
    Will keep you posted on the launch.

    One application of epoxy and microballons.
    After sanding, applied glazing putty to the obvious problem areas.
    Next a coat of primer to disclose the not so obvious problem areas.
    Then another application of glazing putty, sanding and the beat goes on---

    ๐Ÿ“ Time for the putty and Paint
    5 months ago by pressonreguardless ( Commander)
    Flag
    View All
    So, mates, I haven't been lollygagging with regard to the 44'
    She is basically assembled; she just needs Putty and Paint to make her what she ain't.
    Then to propulsion, twin motors, direct drive (no reduction gears) provided by Mack Products in NJ in the US.
    Then of course trimming out.
    Yes, I am down in the dungeon, my shop, my cellar of my 200-year-old house, ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
    Nothing fancy here just the basics Mam. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
    But it is nice and cool.
    Another episode soon to be seen/heard on your favorite channel (here of course)

    Thanks Stephen,
    I restored this place 40+ years ago. Could have built 2 houses in the time it took.
    The foundation is hand laid-up stone, no mortar. Still standing, I guess they knew what they were doing.

    Hi Trev,

    Great work, I am looking forward to more progress.
    200 year old houses don't exist in my neck of the woods, great to be the custodian of such an old home.
    I guess that makes you the dungeon master of your own dungeon. ๐Ÿ˜

    Cheers,
    Stephen.
