Main Cabin Bulkhead
Here's a couple pics of the cabin bulkhead being dry fit into position. The cardboard strips are just there to give a very rough mock-up of the cabin top shape. (Yes, I know the strips are crooked--even Denise pointed that out to me--it's a ROUGH mock up!)
This boat has never been built but what I'm hoping for is that if an old T-bird and a sexy little I550 got together, this boat would be their love child. For more info, check out the history section at the begining of this blog.
The boat is 26' feet long and 8' wide. With it's hard chines and tons of sail area it should go very well to windward--even in light air. I'm planning on a huge asymetrical chute for downwind which with the boats flat botom should get it planing very easily. Hopefully it'll be fast and fun!
